I have never bothered starting a project thread on here because i have only had s body's in the past but i think this deserves some attention.
First of i will explain the background of the car . The mk1 cavaleir was bought a few years ago buy the guys at Autofusion in leigh. Im sure any users of the retro ride forums will be familier with Dave and ghraham.
The original plan was to turn it in to a drag car for under £1k .
That is how it ended up being fitted with the 3 litre turbo engine and box from a Z31 .
The car has been fitted with manta twin headlamps and has a replica 400 bonnet .
Now for the last year or so it has been sat waiting paitiently under a tarp in the yard and as soon as i heard about it it has been playing on my mind . So after attending a few drift days with me and a few friends they both decided that it was destined to become a driftcar .
So far the plans are
: 2 door the shell moving the B pillar back to accomadate manta doors.
Full weld in cage and seam welded shell.
Manta tarmac set up ( for now)
scimiter rear axle to take the extra power
the front track is already about 40mm wider due to work carried out by ghraham lastyear.
now some pictures as it is now!
And some inspiration !
