Well that's what we were talking about looking into but then Coug presented us with another option. If we are going to build a whole new frame for this wrecked car, why not build the frame for a "More Complete" car. So Coug has offered to donate a 70 Fastback Body. So I believe Chuck and Eddie are about to take a trip to Texas and pick up the new project................




What happened to buying Randy Moore's car?

That was one of four options and still not out of the question however I believe Chuck is leaning towards getting the 70 Fastback at this time.

I understand, I'm kind of partial to the fastbacks myself... Cool

Well It's Official. Chuck and his Father Eddie are traveling to Texas to pick up a 70 Fastback from The Coug. Randy B. Thanks a TON for donating the body.

Kudos go out to Bill Mitchell of BMR Performance. Bill was over to the shop Saturday taking measurements and has already started building the chassis.


Here's a few pictures and more pictures on my photobucket account at this link

Come on. Don't leave us hanging... round or square tube? strut or a-arm? ladder bar or 4-link?

Enquiring minds want to know.

It is going to be a mild steel round tube chassis built to SFI25.4 with front struts and a 4-link rear. I can't drop the body down too far over the chassis, because I have to try and get Chuck some extra head room. By relocating the seat and changing from the 2x3 subframe connectors that went through the floor on his old car, I have already gained about 1 1/2" extra head room for him.

Sounds like a nice chassis.

I know all about the headroom too. Looks like I might need to replace my 2x3 driver's frame connector with a piece of round tube to gain some headroom as well.

It's hell being big!

Not trying to hijack the thread, Damon asked me to post this over here. This is what I told Damon and Chuck I would do for them. I may be able to do a little more depending on the deal I can make with the car. Exclamation

I talked to Bill last night and we were joking about getting more room for Chuck. While at the shop I told Bill to include a booster seat so I can drive Chuck's car Razz

Thanks again Travis and ALL my BBF Brothers. Your generous donations are GREATLY appreciated!

Truth of the matter is out of all the inquiries.......... Probably 200-250.......... not one person has came to look at the car. Have had lots of offers on even up trades but nothing I am truly interested in. 3 deposits later and its still here. As of yesterday, a member off of the 460ford site is supposed to be coming on the day after Thanksgiving to make the purchase, Not holding my breath though. Seems that in this day and age a mans word is less and less valuable. Sad

Copy/Paste from Bill's Post on the Chuckathon thread.

I have done some more cutting, so here are a few more pictures. I cut the floor pans away from the rockers and cut right in front of the door posts across the firewall. The body will need some more cleaning up around the rockers, lower part of the windshield area, and the inside of the quarters to allow for the larger wheel tubs.

Well that's probably for the best anyway if this is going to be mostly a bracket car since slamming it as low to the ground as possible can create some slick clearance problems with the 69-70 fastback's. The rather large & flat "shelf" area of the FB's rear fender really gets in the way of setting the car real low to the ground without first raising the whole rear fender section, or adding fender "bubbles" (fender bubbles....ugh!). My '69 FB sat real low & the 33.5's really rubbed the top of the fenders when the slicks grew.

Sure, having a super low slung car might look great. But for a bracket car that gets a ton of track time I think Chuck might be better served having a car that's easier to work on & get in/out of any trailer with little problems. And that's probably more important than having a "super slammed" Pro Mod look in this situation.

Looks like a nice start Bill.
