1966 valiant rim width with spacers

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on 1966 valiant rim width with spacers
Hey guys.

I’ve got a 4 door 1966 valiant. 7.25 rear end
Front has disk brake swap in progress. To match bolt pattern I did the 1� wheel adaptor in the rear. I have measured 6.5� from face of the spacer to the leaf and only 1.5� from the face of the spacer to fender lip. I could roll the fender and get maybe another 1/4 inch or so....

Budget friendly front drag shocks?

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Budget friendly front drag shocks?
Hey guys. Just wanted some input into possible budget drag shocks. I’m not opposed to holding out until I have the budget for some nice double adjustable shocks.
We are working with a 69 more door valiant. Manual steering, fresh front component and QA1 strut rods , not sure of T/B size(originally a 318 car)8.8 with super stock springs out back. Also running little drag radials. This isn’t a serious car, more of a street/strip mess around car. No real numbers yet, but really looking for a...

what to do for center wheel covers?

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on what to do for center wheel covers?
Looks like Im getting a set of SLOTTED cop car wheels for my 69 Bcuda. I do not like dog dish covers. Was thinking about satin lug nuts (are those available- reasonable?) and painting the center of the axle and front bearing cap. What other ideas suggestions would the members have?
