Sweet! How much was completed when you acquired it? Is this Speedway kit a good kit to work with?

That's going to be beautiful. Post some status updates as you're working on it.

Work has been slow on it since no time. but to answer a few questions. I am sure the kit was well thought out, but the person that started this one, decided to use a 2.8 v6 chevy vs the 2300 or v-6 ford it was designed for.so the fuel pump was in the middle of the steering box, then when i disassembled it the loop that holds the front suspension "suicide" mount was made out of 1 1/2" round tube and theu had sectioned out more than 50% of it so the radiator would slide down into it. I cut the stub off so I wouldn't be stupid and think I could fix it, Will take some pictures tomorrow and add. then when I started measuring things it was "eyeballed" together.
