Gents - I have a 65 Falcon. The body/frame are all in remarkably good condition, very little rust. MII front suspension is installed, just need to fab a tranny tunnel, get a rear end, move leaf springs, and do a roll bar/cage. Goal is low 10's Drag Week type of build.

I know it would need:
-media blasting
-rear end
-leaf spring relocation
-trans tunnel fab
-fill body trim holes
-set quarter sheetmetal
-roll bar/cage (not looking for more than an 8 point)
-remaining body work and epoxy prime

not looking to do paint at this stage.

Sooo, appreciate any ball park estimates to getting this car to this state. I received one this morning in person, so wanted to compare what I may be getting into so the wife doesn't run into any surprises.:rolleyes:

Car is this:

Want it to get to something like this:

Not including trans and engine, driveline, and any interior sheet metal work, you're looking at somewhere in the ball park of $15K to $18K for parts and materials to get it into a roller. That's if you buy all the components and don't fab all of it and stay with a leaf and ladder set up. Any labor would be beyond that. And X2 on the 12 point.

So should I do the chassis work (cage, wheel tubs, trans tunnel, leaf relocate, rear end) first before any body work gets done?

I'm guessing, yes.
