@DeadFast 33 , your roadster's wheels/tires, stance & pinched nose are perfect.:cool:
Brushed or engine-turned wheel discs would be great. Maybe...

Hey @19Eddy30 is that the sedan that was in Jackie's shop? It has a Virginia license plate.o_O
Although his was kinda dark green, not black....
Make your own. Coathangers & welding rods are cheap. By keeping the design simple, any motivated idiot with help from the HAMB can do it::D...
"Scrape" looks pretty traditional below the beltline but modern above the beltline.
Look at the windshield- while covering up the body with your...
This could be really cool!
How about some details?:confused:
What drivetrain? Expected weight? Which class (A/ B/ C/ D/)?
A few more pics of the black Fat Jack roadster & a similar red one. If I ever built a full-fendered road duster, it would have these cars' stance...

I scored an NOS, made-in-the-USA Stewart Warner speedo to use instead of the restored '56 Studebaker/SW speedo I'd previously gotten.
You may not find many junkyards containing '60's Mustangs, and even fewer that'll allow you to remove one's roof.
That's how I found...
Jackstands yes. Blocks never.
I did these with "tilt-shift":

The pic of @racer-x & @squirrel is from Drag Week a few years...
Try adding the location (Allentown, ....) in the title.
Hope this helps.:)
Tonneau covers over back seats. I'm pretty sure Falfa's "wicked '55" had one.:cool:
10.5 timeslips and dead bug guts splattered on the radiator.
What an AWESOME combination.:):cool::):cool:
Chris, do you have an HVAC in your main shop?
When we were young & indestructible, extreme temps were no big deal.
But as we age, staying...

Notice the Edsel is towing a trailer:)
I really liked the blue & white (Hillman?) panel. 87" WB. He clicked off consistent 11.0's and made it to...

Hey @Don Moyer , will you be racing your Willys? :cool:
I'll be the white haired, middle aged guy in the hot rod shirt with the sunburned...
Anybody racing? Spectating?

I'll be there Saturday. Hope to see some of you.
I'd look for an old (late '30's to early '50's) pickup cab donor (maybe one with no doors, since you won't need 'em) to replace the current flat...
There's nothing more traditional than stock A seats. They fit really well. I have four in my sedan; it's angle chopped 3.5" in front & 2.5" in...
No pictures but I can help you with the scaling.
15" / 10.5" = 1.43
Therefore scale up everything by 1.43 to get the actual sizes.
From what I know, your date deciphering looks right. How's it feel to be a hot rod archaeologist? I bet your dad would be pleased.:cool:

This is gonna be an awesome build.
