'71 Scamp - Road racer

Average User Rating:
4.5/5,
  • I’ve rebuilt almost every part with the silver state classic in mind. I’ve attached some pics of where it is. It is running and driveable but the windshield and rear window are out to facilitate painting and roll cage installation.

    I have a Cuda gas cap that I’d like to get installed before it’s painted if I can.

    AND THEN I HAD A STROKE! So I need some help getting my Scamp painted. If you know a painter in the Seattle area, please hook me up.

    BTW, I do have my license back and intend to drive the Silver State Classic!

    Everything except the torque boxes, C pillar repair, roll cage, building the 727 (Pat Blaise) and the welding of the frame connectors was done by me (I did make them).

    Not all of the photos that I have and in no particular order. Enjoy. :>)

    Did you purchase or fabricate the bracket to hold the Porsche caliper to the mopar knuckle?

      If there is any interest, I may be able to resurrect the drawings and have more made. The drawings for the fronts are lost, so I would have to start over. I have a set of 6 piston 928 calipers that I may fit one day.

      If I were doing it again, I would probably use a single piece of Aluminum, for the rears instead of my Inconel sandwich. I had the Inconel, so...

      I was hoping to get the front of course! Ebooger had a nice low buck swap in the latest mag using Jeep Liberty factory parts to run discs on the back of an 8 3/4 rear.

    Looks good. Hope you find someone who can help you finish up. Really want to see the finished product.

    Nice work... and oooh I like the front brakes!

    And all the best for your recovery!

    I have had health issues in the past that put my projects on hold for a while as well. If you were a little closer I would help you out. It is probably a little too far to get the car to my shop in Atlanta. Nice work so far and best of luck.
