    You need to explain why....You need/want a gasser......then, maybe we can steer you in the right direction.

    Very good question have to think about it I think gassers have a place in hot rods you don't see them at car shows and I think there cool I dont drive very far mine would be a streetable gasser i hope and the cost of the straight axel isn't much more than a good disc brake conversion need wheels and tires anyway so no extra expence there have to have headers made anyway for the 440 that's all I got and maybe there's a reason you don't see them at car shows I've always liked them but I will listen to the pros that why I ask and I will listen to your advice thank you very much either way I know just because I want doesent make it right

    When I think "gasser" I don't think about a 65 barracuda....I think about the 2 lane blacktop '55 Chevy, or a '40s willys coupe.....just my opinion

    I believe there is a straight axle available for your Cuda, some light digging around here will surely turn up the info!!

    Gotta agree, you sure don't see 'em any more and they were sure cool back in the day. There used to be a turquois '65 that drove around Cheyenne, WY on occasion which I assume he raced at Bandimere. Do it! And please keep us posted on the progress. Just don't display it like this!

    That 65 looks great....but the black trim clashes with the genres.
