A crappy pic of my '71 Bay.  I am working on some new rear hubs that will narrow the rear so I can fit a decent size rear tire under there.

Man, that patina is GORGEOUS, and works really well with the wheels/stance. Lowered, but not stupid slammed is the way to be.

Thanks,
It is all original paint, just buffed a few times to make it shiny again.  The bus has the usual rocker/dogleg/windshield rust, but the floors are mostly solid.  It is our new cheap daily driver family truckster, and I am using it to prototype my newly designed spindles and hybrid beam combo.  Working good so far!

Sounds like a good cruiser/prototype dummy! Got any more pics of that thing?

My then 8 year old son spotted it down a side street in tiny town Wyoming.  He and my dad left a note on the old guys door, and the guy called me back, and we made a deal.  It had a small engine fire, and the guy parked it for 12 years till I bought it.  Its got some dents and rust, but we drive the crap out of it, and I dont have to worry about the parking lot at the soccer field. 








Here are a couple pics of the new spindles I built.  These were just before I finished up the caliper brackets.  The new spindles are 3.5" lowered, about 1/2" narrowed, corrected Ackerman angle, use new modern hub assemblies, giant calipers, and 10.5" vented rotors.  All of the parts are super easy to get at any parts store in the country.  They are built to work with a new bolt-in hybrid beam I built.  The beam has the bottom tube moved up 1.5" so it has the same ground clearance as a split beam.  If you have ever driven a lowered Bay, you know how low the beam is, and how much 1.5" will help.  The spindles and beams will be in production soon, and I already have a Willwood caliper option, and a 12" rotors shouldn't be to far away.   




Thanks for the interest, Brian
