I'm leaning towards the C10 as its different ie not a car on the track and I can remove the body in small sections ie front end, cab and rear bed, wheres I'll never get the big ass galaxie body off in my double garage, thoughts?

    so this



    or this




    or sell them both and buy a 60's mustang as a basis to build on.
    Stick with the Galaxie or truck, Mustangs have been done to death!

    I'm lovin the project idea !
    In the Galaxy.
    I've had some previous dablings with some Shadows. They might not have much HP for their size but its the torque thats a killer. I know a fella that is an accredited RR garage and I have been round there looking underneath them on ramps Everything is super duty. The half shafts are massive but he showed me one that had been twisted by an over enthusiastic owner!!
    Personally I have this hankering to go the opposite and do a Shadow with a roof chop and lowered with a BBC and blower. Mmmm

    Used to drive my late father in laws Shadow around some 30 years or so ago - even had a set of Generals on it (not NOT Grabbers) - used to 'pop' the occasional smoky wheelspin every now and then - until I did a drive shaft in!
