That thing is later than a 53 isn't it? More like a 55.

I think a 53 looks more like Grave-digger.

Im pretty sure that its a 53 but very well could be mistaken :D ... it was all original when we got it but it is full of bondo. It had a pontiac one barrel v-8 (30Xsomething I think?) and an automatic tranny. It also had a 3rd member style 14 bolt in it as well.

damn, what tires are you going to run on that?
At least 48s....some kind of ag tire. We are putting adjustable airbags on it so we arent gonna go way crazy with tires otherwise you wouldnt be able to lower it enough to get into it. The tires that are on it now are @ 40 inches tall for a scale factor.

take it easy
