I've always liked the re-use of parts. I'm "going green" with all the recycled parts on this one!

A coupe more pieces of the puzzle-thanks to some fellow 460ford members...

Getting closer, need a couple warm days so I can get the beast assembled

Finally got to do some work on the car today. Got rid of the power brake stuff, got the old calipers and brake lines removed, Did a bunch of weight reduction and got rid of a bunch of the unnecessary stuff- cruise, hood latch and hinges, 5spd. stuff etc. Oh and a bunch acorns a squirrel had stashed in the fenders LOL. Going to get manual brake stuff ordered and finish that up next...waiting for the coupe to sell so I can get my dang jack stands back and get the k-member lined up so I can start doing some motor/trans mock-ups...slowly but surely making a little progress

Finally nicer weather did a little work on the car today, gonna get at it heavy this weekend finally 50 degrees! This weekends project- align and button up front suspension and start on rear. Car has 9" and I have some solid lowers, so adjustable uppers and call it that for now is what I am thinking.

Trans shop called today. My C-6 that I scored on a deal (more of a dice roll) is ready to go! Cracked it open and was full of goodies and already built up. Changed out 3rd gear clutches- everything else was good and right. That went really well considering I bought it way too cheap not in a car and knowing nothing about it. Time to get to work- this summer is gonna be here too quick. Nice when a plan comes together.

Got the rear end out. No clue what I got here, it was in the car when I bought it. Welds look good, said to have 4:11 gear. 9 inch is new to me so gonna have to do some research. Been thinking about how to stick this thing to the ground. So far I've got solid lowers and anti roll bar. My buddy who did the cage is going to weld up the torque boxes for me and install roll bar

Cool. That looks like its going to be a fun car when its running.

Not to nitpick but, that lower core support sure looks rough! Hopefully you plan to replace it or straighten it.
