alright i have never built one of these wagons, but i have always wanted to, my question is, what rules would make this wagon tough? our local fair has mainly stock rules rules are: stock bumpers welds on doors and tailgate 4 on 4 off roll cage cannot be attached to frame in any way no alteration to suspension show is opened up to any year car and no imperials
In past few years alot of cars have been 80s gm and fords with very few old iron
would a roundy beat out a sedan in these rules or is there alot that needs to be done to them??
I recently purchased a 74-76 buick wagon for cheap. I've never ran one of these and I wondered what tips or tricks you all have to prep the rear of these cars. Run the stock bumper? I know the frame doesnt go all the way back, so what do you do with the body from there on back? What about the rear bumper shocks? Any help would be greatly appreciated....Missed out on the old forum thread on these cars...
74 Buick Wagon, solid frame, solid body except for rear floor area and drivers side quarterpanel. Would it be worth taking to a chain and go show? What about the 455 motor.. Swap for 350?
as long as frame is solid,it will do ok in a chain and go derby.definately put a chevy engine in it,also I'd swap on a 74-76 chevy front bumper.I've seen several rusty body 71-76 GM leaf spring wagons win features in the past.All depends on the driver and how well the drivetrain is to win a derby.Also luck has a little to do with winning also.
