Talking the ls1 notch project

Hi to all this is my first post here and wanted to share in my new project with a perfectly good 64 notch. This project is being planned out as good as i can. I am hoping to go pick up the first part of the project which is the frame sections and suspension parts and start building. I have been working hard on everyone else's projects and motors along with builder bugs to sale to get the funds up for this project. I will have help building the frame because this car will also be going to the track and with the amount of power i want to go straight. This car will take me a little time but will be so worth it in the end. To the purest on other web sites out there it's my car and will have fun cutting it up to make it mine and that is why i like this site. Here are a couple more pics of the notch and some of the things i build. Can't wait to talk to you all and get more ideas and help any of you with anything i can. I posted info about myself in my build thread. Thank for reading.

Sounds like a nice project, but most of your pics are not of the notch. Let us see more of that.

Check out TJM's build on his V8 Square. It's got a really nice frame!

I have seen the frame but i am building one from alstons chassis works that gives me a little more freedom to place the motor. Started taking out the front end sheet metal to get ready for the ls1 to fit. Big bummer part is the usps lost my $5100 check going to alstons and they say they have 90 day to resolve the issue which happens to be how long the bank check is good for. The bank has canceled the check but will not issue a new one till the usps takes responsibility for it and they wont. So onto cutting and making room. Back to the frame this one is being built with double adjustable coil over shocks in all four corners a-arm front suspension and 4 link adjustable rear suspension with ford 9 inch and a track loc diff.

well got a little work done today removed the forward firewall if you want to call it that. I think the people who put these cars together got paid by the spot weld lol. Next i have to start removing the rear panels that cover the wheel wells to widen them for the new wheel and tires and there are a ton of spot welds in a small space.

I had a fastback sitting in my driveway and measured out the front trunk space,thinking the same thing,what a great space for a LS engine. A LS Notch is even better,cant wait to see this one come together.

I know it's been awhile but progress is being made. Been real busy at work and side work. Rear end is done with a tracloc diff 3.89 r&p with 31 spline curry axles and disc brakes. The roll cage is just about done and body welded to the frame. Still looking for a dash to use. Motor is all mounted after we moved it forward 4" and also had to move the main hoop back and is in the quarter window a little. Headers are being worked on and are looking good. Can't wait to get into a full roller. Also in this time away picked up the wife a project of her own a 61 2door falcon which will get some major updates of its own.

here are some pics of the finished headers mounted. These things fit but it's tight. In order to put in the o2 sensors i will have to go through the frame and weld in some tubes to get to the bungs. Now working on building the wheel tubs.

a little update with the start of the wheel tubs. Chris the guy that is helping with the sheet metal work does real nice work. The side and rounded top were two pieces before he rounded the edges and welded, then metal finished.

a little more cutting getting ready for new wheel tubs. Also picked up a dash for the car out of a 54 chevy bel air. the contour is real close the car and will give me the extra space under the dash for the ac.
