Project SuperChief Build Thread

Here are the two FSJ for my daily driver project. The drivetrain (Buick 350/TH400/D20) plus EFI from the '70 (Elroy) is swapping into the '89 (Elwood) along with a front D44 from a third unseen Waggy. The '89 is going to be dewooded, the dash, console, bumpers, trim, etc from the '70 are going in and on the '89 to give it a vintage appearance. The interior will be finished with new seats, custom door panels, etc with most of the conveniences of a modern SUV.

That sounds like a beutiful plan, get ready for a wiring headache from the dash swap I am in the process of swapping an 82' dash into my 89' and it isn't going to be fun.

By the way what is wrong with the 44 in the 89' waggy?

It's starting out as "Elwood" and "Elroy" so we can keep them straight... I imagine the finished rig with get a new name.

We had "freezing fog" here this morning. That's a new one to me.

The '70 is pretty rusty but will be available to buy or to part when we're done... same on the '77 donor.

Thanks to Bev I finally dragged them both inside today and started stripping the '89. They sure do come apart easy when they are rust free.

Looks like a good plan. Hope to see lots of pics.
