A few years ago I went out and bought my self a 86 elky got on this forum and wrote something like ....will be done in six months ....well ...here we are ...six years later.
As I am really close to getting her on the road i thought I´d post some pics to show my gratitude and say thanks to all and every one that has helped guide me to the right place.

I started with this.

Put this in it.

Starting to get there


Before being polished

I will post more pics of frame, Engine, front and rear brakes,saved gas cap, saved key hole, custom seats and doors and so on.

Thanks for the kind words

Yes your right on the button there even if she´s 5 1/2 years late.

The Ghoul

At first glance she looked good but as you will see things were far from good.
She got a 4L60E out of a 2008 avalanche, the engine came out of the same truck.
The engine have a corvette intake and pully system and a caddy cts-v oil pan, the engine mount are home made so there are no notches any were ...not an easy task.

Super charging her would be cool but the swedish authorities would do a back flip and the car would never be road legal ...I´m pushing it as it is.
I can have 300hp to 1500kg if I change the brake system, engine, transmission and rear end ....now that all that is done the car will be re-registered as a "modified vehicle" So as for super charging I´ll leave that to my volvo t5 engine (480hp) that I´m putting into a 1965 volvo 122s estate.


More pics sooooooon:)

More rollpan pics


After fitting and paint


The interior.

The seats are from a Honda of some sort, to be able to fit them it was necessary to cut part of the floor out. The seat design originally came from a Ferrari Dino and the door panels ...well..the guys that have been on this site a long time just might recognize who i pinched that idea from.

Adjusting the floor


Seats




Door panel




More to come soon

This looks absolutely amazing and is making me a little jealous, ive been doing an LS2 swap on my 85 SS with a ford 9" with rear disc conversion but im in the military so im away from her for long periods of time and is making it hard to get it completed, i want to do a frameoff once i get settled someplace and i stop moving, but the elky looks great and cant wait to see the finished product.
