    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 didn't have the heart to change it. DSCN1256 (2).JPG

    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 set up was the same. DSCN1236 (3).JPG About the only other similarities are a 27 body and they both have 4 wheels.

    Don't GET ME WRONG,
    I like the red one, just the wheelbase too short,
    because of spring in front of axle front end..
    IMO if Spring was ON TOP of dropped axle and IN cross member ,,,,,YAAAAAH

    (and the exhaust was invisible )

    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 best look IMO but as I said before this is the way it was built in 52 so I kept it. Same with the 32 steering box. It's not the best but it works. The exhaust is on the list. It's one of the few things I paid to have done and it was done wrong two times. I'll rework it this winter it bugs me too. It's a stubby looking little car but I'm a stubby looking little guy.
