With the current green movement of "no gas engines" by 2030, our cars may well end up with 4 electric motors and the engine compartment full of batteries...
And I thought it was sad to see so many classics with LS swaps being done in the last 15 years.

I love the hood, but then again I'm a little biased I also love the meats you have on this thing, I bet your scared of messing up that purty paint ain'tcha? I have 8" Cragars out back right with 4.5" backspacing and Pro-Trac 275/60-15s, probably L60s?? Would be a lot cooler if they said L60 on the side instead of 275/60-15. Tight fit in a stock wheel tub but they fit.

I think the only way you'd fit an L60 on a 69 is by perhaps trying to fit them in there using 7" wheels. Even then you'd probably still need rolled lips to make them work other wise they likely rub on a 69. On my green car, I had at one point set it up with Pro Trac L60's on 8" Cragar's and it still needed air shocks or they'd rub. Eventually went stock with that car but learned a little from the mockup.

I want to try dropping the back down on this one and utilize the air bags, and that means a smaller tire being in there. Not that I won't switch it around every once in a while. Air bags only take 30 minutes to remove and install so no big deal to remove them if I want to air up the shocks and mount the N50s.

True, didn't think of the "flat" wheel arches on the 69 1/4s... One thing is for sure, it'll look great no matter what!

Was out to clean up the underside this weekend and get all the body shop dust cleaned up. Still have a little more cleaning to do but have to say that Ron did an awesome job dialing in the rest of the car. The gaps are awesome, and the final finish is just great. The driver's door and the glass are perfectly fit after being taken back apart, body worked, repainted, and installed after all the adjustments. The downside was that the NOS outer window felts got damaged when they were taken off at his shop so I will need to find some new GM window felts.

More later...

Like the hood? (everyone had cowl induction and Cragar rims)
