Judging from the hubs it appears that's so......The long arms on the rear though are unusual, so maybe there are some mods we can't see.

I like what he did though..putting the 6 lug pattern into some 20'' wheels. to run those..

I wonder what it would look like to take a factory deuce wheel and have a kaiser 6 lug welded into the center and run the wheels the same way??

This was a father/son project in progress last time I saw it ,I think he had a 327 in it and I'm thinking stock axles ,but not sure.But what caught my attention besides the obvious was the brand painted on the doors.

You think that's bad, looky here....


Why waste money on axle swaps, you can now bolt up 52's to a 1/2" stick of emt Electrical Conduit!
