Figured may as well start the 55 thread. Joe Swenson is picking up my 55 Thursday and is expected to be gone about a month-month and a half. Can't wait!

Purchased 1986-

Hit a deer in 1987

Heading for paint 2014

No cage, The body has been off the frame and frame painted. Body was fully media blasted and the underside rhinolined. Minitubbed, narrowed 9 inch with ladder bars/coil overs. Disc breaks.

Was going that 6-71 blown 427 but sold all that with intentions to go twin turbo LS motor.
