In central Canada (Manitoba) but willing to travel for the right setup.

Due to our import laws I am limited on what components I can source from the US unless the completed car can be proven to have been completed over 15 years ago. So I will entertain something from the US but prefer if it is already in Canada.

Car will be getting v8 power and used for drag/autox/track.

I'll look at anything but I prefer:

-442 frame size
-Live rear axle setup.
-without body skins attached could be a benefit at this stage of the build.

Don't need:
-motor
-Trans unless it bolts to a GM small block, Ideally LS.
-Rear diff unless it can handle higher torque ratings, if a smaller rear diff is already setup that isn't necessarily a deal breaker.

Let me know what you have.

Cheers,

Sean

Im in Ontariostan and have registered mine as 81 Corolla. Having built two I strongly suggest going as light as possible and forgoing the torque of a v8 for the lightness and HP/Torque of a 4cyl. My car is sub 1200lbs (excluding me) and am top 10 in every autocross I enter and am neck & neck against cars costing 5 times more.
