Tri-C Engineering handled the sheet-metal work, including the reshaped rear fenders and custom firewall and inner fenders. Tri- C also boxed the frame, built tubular X-Members, and installed a Total Cost involved IFS and a Currie 9- inch rear-end. The Chassis has to be stout because Dennis had big plans for under the hood which was to hold a 427 river-side oiler engine, one of the finest Ford engines ever built.

A true classic for any auto lover.
