Alright guys, I bought a 1984 Notch the other day that is mostly a shell for $400. The plan for now is to build a track car that i can drive to the track and out to some local cruise in's, so it doesn't have to be the most comfortable thing to ride in. The front clip has already been cut for a tubular front (I'll post pictures later) and the interior is gone, my next objective will be to start getting the harness out of the car. I'm currently still looking at engines and transmissions but here is the things I've decided on: Tubular front, Tubular K, Manual Rack&Pinion, 10 Gallon Fuel Cell, 6 point(at least) cage, No rear seat(obviously), a simple steering column, custom dash(probably). I'm planning to have most of my fuel system ran by the time I'm ready to sit the motor in the car and that means I'll need my k member and rack under the car by that point too. That being said I'm in the process of figuring out the fuel system and how it will be ran as well as making lists of the parts I'm going to need which grows everyday. I will post pictures from my phone later today.

Looks like a good starting point to me as well. What are your plans for bracing besides just the cage...Thru Floor Subframe or just Full Length?

Alright so I’ve been stripping the car out recently and I’ve got a bunch of my parts in and more on the way. I have this old 4.6 short block laying around and I’ve always driven 4.6 cars up until I bought my 95 Gt so I’m actually thinking of using it to power this thing. I know Edelbrock makes a carb swap intake so I plan on a carburetor and I have a tubular k that will accept the 4.6 into the fox but I need help finding the motor mounts. It’s a chrome moly k

Going to pick up the tubular k member this weekend, and will start tearing down the 4.6 block to get it ready for the machine shop
