Alright here's what i've got goin on. I've got a chevy 350 V8 sittin in my shop that needs a home. I've been wanting to build a "sleeper" for a while now. And now I have the room and running gear but i'm just not sure what car body to use... any ideas? I'm wantin to go fairly inexpensive but not "cheap". Let me know what you think..

I suppose it depends on if you're concerned about looks at all?

If not then an older car body from the junk yard can be had for pretty cheap I'm sure. Maybe an older Mustang or Vette body.

well that's kind of the point of a sleeper.. take an older crappy car.. say a VW rabbit or something like that. throw a big motor in it and make that machine wheelie. as far as the mustang or vette they mostly come/came with V8s. i know it'll have to fabbed and all just wantin ideas cuz i'm still not quite sure.
