    i've seen that one online, before. it gives me the urge to punch the guy. wheeling is great, and he may be a good fabricator/mechanic/etc. but do not screw around with a classic muscle car. dang, man, is nothing sacred?:angry1:

    you guys are looking at this all wrong. you have a great truck chassis and a good car body seperate and go. you have good starters for two different things.

    But that kind of stuff isn't rare down here. With no road salt to disolve all metal parts into oblivion, stuff lasts a VERY long time. :cool1:

    He may OR may not have a 12 bolt front...........but there is a vehicle crusing around Calgary with a 14bolt front & rear. I've seen it with my own eyes.......obviously custom built........... but it exists.

    That reminds me of the 68 Camaro I saw a long time ago. It was built pretty much the same way except for the 454. It had a 350. I asked the guy why he would do this to such a cool muscle car and he said "All I had was the rusted out body and old 4x4 truck and a bunch of parts so I just put 'em all together".

    Custom built 14bolts and Ford 9" front diffs are one thing.

    I'd be extremely surprised if anyone knowledgeable enough to accomplish such a task would go through the trouble of custom building a front 12 bolt that is marginally (if any) stronger than cheap readily available 10 bolts and D44s.:rolleyes:
