I thought about that,but wasn't shure if that would work on one this new. the 2nd phase of the project will be to do a 4-link rear and drop the front end a lil. mabe someone refresh my memory on a part. seems as tho I remember a speed senser from some car that'll fit in the speedo cable hole of the c-6 that would alow me to plug in the wires that went to the vss. anyone remember what car that was? mabe a crown ?

Yup, crown, or town car

The crown front end is almost a crossmember drop in........
cut and weld...
Just like putting a mustang II in a street rod.
You can even use the f 150 steering column

Up top, on the right, there is a set of scales you hit on, to leave a good reputation for the poste. Sort of a like button
