Default 68 v8 volks

Hey I'm new to this site just want to see what you guys think of my build, it's a 68 body I channeled 6" and chopped the roof another 6". I built the chassis out of 1. 1/2 dom and used a speedway eng ford front end and a comp eng 4 link kit for the rear. I built a 450 hp aluminum head small block Chevy bolted up to a th400 and a ford 9". Hopefully you guys like it

Very Cool! Looks like you have room for the radiator up front, what are your plans for front sheet metal?

I'm leaving the front open with just the hood on it. I'm in the process of building stainless headers that will exit rite in front of the doors with 3.5 inch collectors

I set up a steering box today. I went to pick a part and pulled a box off a 66 Chevy truck and it worked out well.
