    I LIKE THAT....Dare to be different, and you did....

    Kind of like a Heep with a Bow-Tie right on the grill.

    Pretty Cool!! When I lived in Rapid City, SD a few years ago, there was a guy that had build a pinto wagon & put it on a toy frame with 35s. Afetr he sold it, he put a covair on a toy frames also w/ 35s. I always liked the covairs. First one I'd seen with a front engine /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    that car totally rules. my friends and i want to make a 2wd version of that just a swapped in rear 1/2 ton chev axle. is the chevette frame strong enough to support that. i was planning on 33's with lots of trimming. prolly need like 4.56 just so the 3.8 v6 we're gonna swap in will work. we thought it would be a lot of fun to tool around in. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    bottom line, your car is cool.

    I love something different /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif There's a Volvo on a blazer frame with 38's here in billings. There's also an elcamino on 35's. There both kinda goofy but cool.

    I'll be at the canfield show, no car though... frotn leafs are in the shop getting rearched, and then I still ahve to get the new lift installed.

    Chevettes do not have frames. They are unibodied vehicles.

    They will hold a 3.8 buick engine fine, thats what I'm getting ready to swap in, instead of this CHEVY LUV (isuzu) 1.8 4 banger. You should be able to put the rear end in some how too, but it would be easier if u used one from a car with coil springs like a monte carlo. there isnt much room to trim becuase the wheel wells are so small. You could always stick a lift block in. Mine will hold 33's fine in the rear but then agian I ahve a frame under there.
    a 3.8 should turn 33's fine with 4.10's. you shouldnt need 4.56's. I'm actualy only going to be running 3.73's with 31's and a 3.8. 3.8's ahve about 175 horse and a good bit of torque at low rpm's. http://groups.msn.com/InternationalChevetteClub
    you should be able to get all the info you need there.
