Ok so i've been thinking about the wildcat and decided not to build it. I took off the rear end, and the finned drums, and i'm rebuilding the nailhead, but all of it is going into a hot rod instead of the wildcat. I already threw away the frame, but if anybody wants the body or needs parts (i have nice bumpers and all the trim and stuff that goes with the car, along with the top and seats and everything) let me know what you need.
this is my new project, it's a 1966 buick wildcat convertible (sorry to post it in the lesabre section but there isn't one for wildcats). It's got i think the 401 nailhead engine, the guy i bought it from didn't know much about the car. I'm going to be pulling the body off of the frame, doing a full frame wrap and putting in a 3 pump hydraulic setup in it, i'll keep this page updated with pics.
i've been working getting the body ready to take off, here's a few pictures after i took out the seats and rug, and kicked out the snakes that were living in there. The floors are pretty rusty but nothing too bad. Hopefully tomorrow i'll be getting rid of one of my other cars that's taking up a garage bay, it's kind of sad that i have 7 bays at my house and there's no room for the wildcat inside.
alright got the frame off and engine/tranny pulled, here's a few more pics
check out my other car, a 64 fairlane with bags
and here's a picture of that when i got it
