69 Bee/clone bruiser

Post by Cookie-Monster on Sun Jan 25, 2015 6:15 pm


My project I am working on. Car is currently in storage as we had moved and now I am building a new garage/shop so I can get the car and tools back home.

Here I was trying to set up to keep the stock suspension, ended up going with an Alterkation unit.

What it looked like when I bought it, turned out the car was rusted inside and out.

Wow, you're really getting into that baby! Hope you get the shop / garage built soon.......your probably having withdrawal symptoms! The engine looks great poking up there.

        A few of the rust issues. The front frame rails were shot due to rust as well.

Rear suspension and frame rails were just hacked in. The frame rails were made with two pieces of c-channel and hack welded together.

I made the brackets on the left as I did not like the ones that came with the kit.

I had a machine shop throw these pieces on the lathe for me since I don't have one yet. Then I welded them in, top and bottom. The one end sticks out 1/8" to use as locators for the K-frame.

I ended up making the diagonal link into an x brace and made the brackets and spacers.

Very nice work you are doing on your Bee, and as you surely know, that color is Go Mango from Dodge Ram Daytona 2005.......that my son choose for his 1978 Ramcharger......

Love that color you picked out, it looks like a burnt orange from the picture.

Great work.

Thanks Keith, the color is a burnt orange call Go Mango from Dodge Ram ''Daytona'' 2005.
In this picture, the truck seem darker.






My son never finish this 440 cu.in. Ramcharger, in 2007 he lost battle to cancer. My daughter in-law return with his family 400 miles away, so I deliver the Ram and his Triumph Daytona (100 th anniversary) to her place. She sold the truck a few years later.
