        Just be sure you keep the Cruiser emblems on it, cause thats what it should be doing soon. Very nice.

            Nice ride! When you added the Turner discs up front, did they recommend a larger wheel to clear the calipers? Kanter offers a disc conversion and they said the front wheels have to be at least 5 1/2" wide. I want to have disc up front for safety/additional braking, but I want to run the smaller Stude wheels up front with skinnies and Mopar 15x8's out back with 4 line pie crust slicks on my car.

              This car really makes me want to build something similar. Maybe using a 62-63. We have a little timed road coarse at a local track. Would be a really cool all purpose car. Great inspiration! Thanks for thinking outside the box!

                The steering with shorter arms... What arms? I'm curious because I'm also a fan of curved roads...
                & I thought it might be the arm going down from the steering-box that is the one to shorter for quicker action but now I'm not so sure anymore...
                So what is it?

                  Neat ride!!!

                  But "shorter steering arms"? How many? I thought it was the one going down from the steering-box that is the one to have short for quicker steering.
                  I'm curious because I also fancy curved roads! (& there's plenty of that in Sweden...)

                        The pitman arm off the steering box has to be lengthened to have "quick steering." I seem to remember a few years ago someone that had the manual steering pitman arm redrilled lower to get quicker steering but dont remember its outcome. Perhaps the small difference didnt make that much of a change.
