Here is the car as it arrived:
From The Roadster Shop:
A local customer had this ’64 as a summer daily driver but ended up getting a little carried away with the build. Another shop in the area built him a nice twin-turbo LS motor, exhaust, disc brakes, and suspension upgrade.
Well, after making 600+ HP at the wheels, the little 235 rear tires had met their match. Ron brought the car in to us initially talking about mini-tubbing the body and narrowing the chassis.
After some discussions, we decided going with a full chassis would be the way to go. We are using several of the original parts like his rear end and brakes that are basically brand new.
The plans for the rest of the car are pretty simple: The exterior, engine, wiring, and interior are pretty much staying as is. We are putting a chassis under the car, doing the exhaust, a narrowed stainless tank, fuel lines, and mini-tubbing the body to get a 335/30R20 under the back.
In addition to the tire size in the rear, Ron also really wanted to lower the car and get rid of that oh so familiar late 70’s muscle car stance with the rear of the car way up in the air…
