    Late last night, the old “Sensation” chassis arrived here in Waterbury after it’s long journey from Nebraska. It was in Washington before that, so this 1 has gone clear across the country.

    Anyway, follow the link to see pictures of it as it sits in my yard next to my ’63 Polara:

    Dino, just for clarification; the Melrose Missile ran with the standard Chrysler uni-body chassis under it. The 3rd owner/driver team had the chassis built under the car after it was campaigned as the Melrose Missile.

    Tomato, the chassis is for the ’65 AWB car. My ’63 Polara is gonna be a plain ol’ streeter; whenever I get to it. It’s actually a really solid car that just needs to be cleaned up and put back together.

    OK, well…. streeter might be stretching it by a little, so let’s put it this way: It won’t ever see a track (or paint) for as long as I own it. It’ll be a fun goof-around car that I hope the cops don’t catch me in.

    This weekend I got the old “Sensation” chassis put together with my ol’ Dodge shell. Process went smoothly and it feels real good to finally have my own little piece of history put together and looking like something. Nothing is welded in or finalized yet, but atleast I know that it’ll all go together. Should be on 4 wheels and a “roller” real soon!

    Hi guys! Since my last posting, I have gotten my project tacked together and finally “rolling” on it’s own 4 wheels. Everything is located and squared/leveled. Just needs finish welding to call the project a roller. I have OLD M+H/Stahl front tires to mount on “kidney bean” Halibrand reproductions and more OLD M+H 12.00-16 Racemasters to mount on REAL magnesium 16X8 Halibrands out back. Once I get them bolted on and the whole thing in primer, it oughtta start looking like something!
