1965 RHD TURBO RAGTOP

Postby bam2 » Tue May 11, 2010 12:27 pm

picked this up last summer and decided to build myself a halfway nice car for once. got the shell and fenders painted just got to finish the hood and doors and put it together.

oh yea it has a 5 inch narrowed beam with dropped spindles and a 2" trans raise in the back. should be low and kinda fast.

I'm looking for a good set of doorpanels for it if anyone has a cheap set.

I know...... I'm going to have to scratch the hell out of it when its done so I don't feel weird.

I've been tempted to sell the turbo and just run dual carbs........ we'll see once I get done painting. I am a turbo virgin so carbs would be easier for me. Well except if I do that I will have to build a custom exhaust because of the trans raise. I do prefer the look of having a decklid though so who knows.....

maybe I will make it to a meet in this this summer? :shock:
