Need more updates!!!!
Also.. what are you doing for drivetrain? The 4.6 will be a little underpowered wont it?
I dont understand why everyone would keep thinking that, I have a 4.6 in my 97 truck and it ripped 96mph in the quarter mile its xcab as well seems to haul it around as well.
now as for weight
when the underbody of the 62 was completly removed I could physicaly pick up the complete shell of it and move it myself (standing inside behind the B pillers- mind you I am also quite big and strong lol) so I estimate the shell od the 62 to be roughtly 300 lbs or just alittle over
now the metal from my 99 was alot heavier then the 62 so when the 62 was put onto the 99 base it didnt even sag the suspension an inch thats why in the pics it looks to be sitting so high the suspension is maxed out upwards!
once complete I plan on weighing the car the way Im figuring it should actually come out lighter then the 99 wich overall is lighter then the 62
short week since I only work on this during my lunch break and a few mins here and there after work
working on making the trunk filler panels and started on the wheel tubs
im hoping by the end of next week ill have the whole back trunk/ rear deck/ wheelhouses completely welded in.
