So I brought this 66 home today for a parts vehicle. Mostly I just want the roll cage out of it. It seems to be very well made, beefy. It has a lot of gussets and it is tied into the frame horns. The back section looks like it should hinge....check out the lower tube in the 2nd photo. Anyone seen this before?

...and the No-Hop kit was a nice bonus!

The Bus reduction swingaxle has a "No-Hop" kit on it. It may not be an original Johnny Johnson deal, but it's cool. It should work pretty well. I'd roll the whole car. Throw a paint job and some bumpers on it to your liking and an engine and go. Taking the cage out and putting it into another body would be doing things the hard way. Someone went to a lot of expense on that fuel filter rig and the cage. The wheels obviously need a sandblast and re-squirt. But I say better to go forward than backward.

The cage is just bolted to the pan. I think I'm gonna unbolt it and put it in a '70 that I'm piecing together. The 70's body is already off. I'll probably sell off the trans and everything that goes with it. As cool as it is I think it would help someone else with their project better than myself.

I'm gonna save the door panels, front raised BJ beam (for now), the cage, dash panel, Ja-Mar gas pedal and cable, fuel filter thingy, el fuel pump, rims and tires, windshield, and aluminum battery box. I could use a few patch panels cut out the pan...

I seriously doubt anyone would want the body. The roof is crushed in, and rust has taken over huge portions of it.
