I don't know. We'd have to find another solid 4 door. We did find a coupe that I won't feel bad about cutting up for the doors and quarters

Yes, it is at the moment. We're planing on swapping in a 65 front suspension.
I had the rear redrilled while it was all apart

I have a question about the camshaft. If the crankshaft is rotating backwards and the camshaft is rotating the normal way because of the crank and cam gears are used, wouldnt I be able to use a normal camshaft. If I would be using the oem chain drive both crank and cam would turn backwards and it would make sense that I would need the reverse rotation camshaft. Or is the reverse rotation cam needed no matter what way it turns? Please explain to me, its driving me nuts. just bought a reverse rotation but I dont like the specs, would be great to use a hotter cam.

The crank turns in the opposite from "normal" and the cam turns "normal".
The cam is ground to open the valves in the reverse from normal.
If you hold a stock cam next to a reverse cam you can see the difference.

You can have the reverse rotating Marine cam re-ground to a somewhat hotter grind. Ed - How is the cooling system upgrade going?

Marcus88, I had a spacer machined for the crank to the Corvair flexplate.

Seth, right now the car is waiting winter out. I have another project in the shop this year but we plan on getting back at it this spring
