  3. Great score Todd. When you get an extra minute, take some photos with the body off. I'll bet one of the digger guys will be able to ID the chassis.
    Merry New Year
     
  4. The rollbar and frame profile look a lot like my Speed Improvements kit car.

    It's been awhile, been really busy with work but here are some more detailed pic's. Someone out there has to recognize this front-end.

  17. So what you're saying is...restoring old dragsters is addictive. Can't wait to see how this one turns out!

    This is the car out of Portland that Mark and I almost bought, and then decided to go with an all-new King Chassis instead. Glad to see that someone is taking it on. Neat car.

    Thanks Man! Brian did an amazing job on it! When you get goin' on your little digger be sure to start a build thread here or a blog or sumptin' so we can check it out. I just figured for what we wanted to do, by the time we made it so it would pass, and replaced any tubes that had rusted from the inside out, it would be mostly new pipe and some of the features that make that car so cool we wouldn't be able to keep and still pass tech, so better to let someone like yourself get it and bring it back to life. All the best with that little gem!
