Projects O/T kinda, sorta, but there maybe some hope...

  1. First off... if this needs closed I understand, but thought it wouldn't hurt to ask.

    Anyways... I ran across a good deal on a "legends" dwarf car... 1937 Chevy Sedan body style. The car needs assembled. but everything is there. I know these are still pretty big in some areas, but not so much here in western PA so therefore I know very little about them.

    I guess where I'm going with this is... have you ever seen one of these converted to be street legal? Also heard that there is/used to be a specific NHRA class for them, any truth to this? Any ideas on what the drag times would be? I've done some searching on google and youtube and have found a little, but nothing concrete.

    Any insight would be appreciated...

    I think that would be cool, and see no reason why you could not get it titled with all the proper lighting, and safety requirements.
    However, I think you would need to mount that body on a OT car frame due to it's size...
    Pictures ???
    Cheers.......

    ON EDIT:
    I am assuming that you only have the body.....no running gear/frame/driveline.....

  5. Why...on earth...would you want to risk your life in one of those on the street? They are cool little race cars, but even a Smart would run right over it...

    I would find a donor bike for all the lights and gauges, etc. You'll need a speedo as well. Our PA special vehicle title laws aren't exactly friendly on this kind of stuff...
