Hello all! Just got my first G-Body(81 Regal) a month or so ago. It’s sporting a 555” BBC, powerglide and 9” rear. There were/are some issues that need addressing but I think I’ll be able to iron them out without much fuss. Looking forward to being apart of the community!

It looks hideous! Lol
And yessir, will be drag raced
That is how I got it. Several oil leaks from the motor, fuel leak at the fuel cell, front adjustable shocks leaking, manual brakes just down right dangerous, etc. seems to have good bones and feels healthy…

Straight out of the 80's, frame notch in the rear?

Well, the 80’s was my heyday! But not digging it now….lol

Sadly, the frame is NOT notched. Looking into doing that but in the little research I’ve done so far, I would need some bracing if I were to notch it…?

I welded a roll bar across the frame rails before notching my Monte, I will also be doing the same to my Regal next year before installing the QP 9" in that.

I’m kind of a fan of the wacky 80s paint jobs. Invest your time and money in the mechanicals:)
