DOZER

1986 SQUAREBODY PROJECT

by Scott Mason

Progress has been steady on Project Dozer. As with any build, I wish I had more time and fewer distractions, but that’s the name of the game, right? 

This new-to-me chassis has had a big ol’ pile of new parts thrown its way in the past month or two and is finally rolling on its own 4 Guniwheels. 

The Tin Works Fabrication frame stiffener and core support crossmember have added a new dimension to the chassis in not only increased rigidity, but also a very tidy, businesslike appearance. No Limit Engineering’s components are strictly business, and along with the Viking coil-overs, should create a comfortable on-road experience along with a competent on-track ability. 

The combination of the Gandrud Chevrolet LS3 6.2L crate motor and Bowler Tremec T56 Magnum transmission coupled to that stout Winter’s quick change rear end should only further add to our true pro-touring experience. When you’re done drooling on this spread, flip the page and check out some more of the details.
