Framed and Mounted.

Engine being placed into frame.

No, that's not the motor that will eventually reside under the birds hood, but for now it allows us to start working on engine and transmission mounts. It will be replaced by a supercharged, aluminum blick ,800+hp monster from Butler Performance. The motor will be a Pontiac motor as well--no Ford or Chevy powerplants for this bird.

New rear frame rails under construction.

As you can see, the new rear rails are set a bit further apart than the originals.

Rear section of new frame. Front section of new frame.

Because of the horsepower that will be going in under the hood, the framing will be beefed up just a bit. As mentioned earlier, this will be a continuous frame, boxed, with some heavy-duty cross members.

Swing arm mount for rear end. Cardboard template for gusset plate.
