Remember last month when we cut the rear wheelwells larger to allow the Coker/Firestone slicks? Well, that meant some changes; the Currie 9-Plus rearend (PN CE-GMB5557X) was narrowed approximately an additional 1-1/2 inches per side (overall width 57-3/8 inches drum to drum) to get the added wheel and rubber combo we wanted to add. The look is taken from the Steve Stanford artwork based on the popular mid-’60s artwork. But once we opened up the “hole” we found we needed much more tire and wheel. In place of the 8.20s we are now using 10.00 Coker/Firestone cheaters and swapped out the 8-inch wide Cragar S/S wheels for 10 inch.
