Thanks Homie! Seriously, I would like to take the body off the frame again and this time flip it out. That paint job was shot in 1990. It still looks cool, but sometimes I get the urge to do it over. But, thanks again for the compliment.

The V8 fits fine, you just have to modify the motor mounts and cut a little off the bottom of the fender well. The front end is off of a 73 Monte Carlo. The rear end is from a 65 Chevelle and I have a Turbo 400 Trans.

I have a 4 speed in my Suburban and I can only go about 65 MPH Max. The problem isnt the transmission, it is the rear end. I plan to change the rear end and put an open drive line in it.

so all i would have to do is get a rear end and use the old yoke thats goes in the tranny and make a drive line? what about one that comes off a 51 bel-air? any diffrence? i want to keep that 6 in there,,

Not sure yet, what the best rearend is to put in there. But a Bel Air should probably work.
