    1934 independent front suspension, cross flow cylinder head, possibly rocker arm hemi-head.

    Tell more and picture rear suspension please.

    Mighty interesting project. I'm looking foward to it. Are those front wheels on backwards? I'm not criticising, just curious.

    It's great to see someone working with what they have and making some good progress. No one can accuse this of being a 1-800-checkbook build.

    Please keep posting as you move along with this.

    This is really low budget project. Donor is Peugeot and polish Nysa.
    Now i want to modify frame. I'll make it lil bit wider, then engine and gearbox mounts. So first chassis and, then body. We Will See.
    Of course Your ideas and obnservations are welcome.

    And That's my junk!

    The suspension on that thing is pretty interesting. Could you post a picture of the front suspension taken from the back side?

    Looks like Peugeot "borrowed" a lot of the Dodge design.

    Thank you. Centered steering box, lever shocks (one is missing?), front axles kind of like the Ford twin I-beam they had on trucks for so long, except they both pivot in the center. That's a fascinating set up.

  27. Neat to see something so different on the HAMB. So are you using a newer Peugeot for the front suspension?
