So which one's glass? Hint. It's not red.[ATTACH]
I'd think an F78-15 or a P205-15 on about a 5 in wide rim would be close to a traditional 6.70 -15
I guess maybe these Rudy Sumpter Reed Engineering shocks. I'm still trying to find out more about them but they were on the car when it was first...
I have only used flattener a couple of times and never had any problems with it. It was a universal product and I have used it in a couple of...
Right on. By the early 60s many rods were running 15s. At least where I was from in Cleveland area.
Damn . Just imagine the sound this thing would make at 100mph plus with no body on it.
My 27 as it was in 1953 with 16s and as it is now with 15s. I think tire size makes more of a difference in looks than wheel size. But 16s would...

I saw your run on Sat. Rock N Race it a great event. I took my 14 year old grandson to see what real drag racing was all about.
Your right on both counts. It only has a 98" wheelbase. If I were building it now I would use a spring on axle and hairpins because that's the...
I would never compare my car to the famous Mack roadster. Only the front spring in front of axle. That car used a 37 tube axle however the spring...
Wow ! I got my first real hotrod at about 35 an that was 37 years ago. It looked like this. Good luck and have fun. PS. I hate you too.
[ATTACH] That's a bad angle. It looks a little better here.[ATTACH]
Or Frank Mack.
It is. Its a spring in front, not sure of the year home done dropped axle, that was originally done when this car was built in early 50's. I...
