Please list any major work recently done [ie: engine or transmission replacement]. Tune-up's, brake jobs, or new tires are not considered "major work." Also please disclose any significant issues [ie: rust or loud knocking sounds].

We recommend that you shoot as many pictures as you can in a well lit area. Please show details of any problems. You can supply all these images to any of the potential buyers so they know what they are getting into [both good and bad] before going much further.

FOR PARTS ADS:

Again, limit the photos to five per ad. List years the parts fit, part number if you have it, condition of the part [ie: the windshield wiper motor works], contact info and price.

Last but not least please provide contact info [e-mail address and or phone number] and most importantly, how much you want for the car.

Possibly looking for a type 1 chassis. Or even a derelict sand rail frame. I really just need a complete tunnel. Preferably a swing axle ball joint frame. Rusty is ok as long as it's repairable. Don't care about floor pans or title. But if it has both great. I keep looking at the pile of spare parts in the garage and I'm getting bad ideas...let me know if you have anything.

Well I'm not super against a IRS frame but that means I'd have to buy a IRS transaxle and axle shafts. Have two swing axles trannies sitting in the garage now. Ideally id like a 66-68 frame.

What are you trying to do? Talk me through the thought and I'll help where I can. You have a body already?

Thinking about building a sand/dirt rail out of spare parts. At the very least I need a rear frame clip for the torsion bar housing and transaxle mounts. At best I'll use a full tunnel.

You are better off buying a left over/ old project rail and building it. I see them on CL for 500ish all the time.

But if you just want a stock pan, I have a super vert coming in for parts. I have a LP frame head too if you want a stronger front end.

Can you take off the trailing arms and install swingaxle spring plates? I've read about people converting swingaxles to IRS by welding on trailing arm pivots, I don't see why it can't go the other way too. Am I missing something here? :?:

I have a chassis from a 71 Ghia that has a title, no floor pans and I have 3 irs transaxles! The body is already off the chassis, ready to start your project!

^^ Sounds like a winner! Title to boot- Eventually you could put a fiberglass tub on it and be street legal if you wanted to. (just a matter of shortening and getting the floors shaped correctly I think?)

Ken, that's a thought. But part of the original appeal of this build was to use as much stuff lying around as I have. I'll keep it in mind.

Swing Axle/ Ball joint is a 3 year only 66-68 so that narrows the field. Agree with Charlie, and Im not sure if you can or cant, but why not stick a SA in an IRS pan. I think thats doable, so Ken's might work.

I understand, looking to clean out some parts. If you want we could swap transaxles irs for swing, just a thought!

Jay,
I didn't hear back from you about the chassis. Do you have any interest in it?
