Default Chris' Find of the Day: Shorty Chevelle

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Chevrolet-Ch...m=262012686714








Drag racers, please tell me why? To my untrained eye, I'd have to think shortening the wheelbase by 27 inches would be a serious negative in the 1/4 mile--aside from the expected weight savings...

This has to be an absolute nightmare to drive.

Hmmm..I bet they started with a lower-trim (non-hardtop) sedan as a basis. IIRC, those shared the same profile with the coupes from the C-pillar back.

Then they'd have to do some creative welding to fit up that A-pillar!

Then cut aft of the A-pillar, and align the A-pillar with where the B-pillar was.

Interesting!

With all that power, I would put the little "training wheels" out the back to keep this contraption from turning turtle when the tree goes green!

I agree, looks like 4 dr sedan turned into a pro street hot rod with the front doors eliminated.
