  1. I think the photos are distorted, in the head-on view the front and rear tires line up perfectly the same camber, strate up and down,look at the pic....in the top 2 pics everything looks correct.

    The body is mounted to the factory holes in the frame, the leaf springs are also factory (never removed the perches)

    Fair enough. I've often said the same thing to Piss Whistlers.
    I'm not one to say anything negative about any ones project but I was suspect of that tire/body fit also. I checked out the post first day it was up. What I can say is that just because you didn't move the stock spring mounts don't mean the rear axle is going to be mounted so that the Tire is in the correct place in the radius of the fender opening. G.M. screwed that up for years and so did Ford. I doubt Studebaker was exempt from same issue. Good chassis guys tend to correct those things.
    Just because one guy might have done things different don't necessarily make it Wrong,,,,, or Right.

  14. Looks nice. I have never seen a Rockne around here before. Classy looking car. Maybe the wheelbase illusion is because it doesn't have fenders. The rear wheels may be right in the center if the fenders were on it. But the front does look bow legged though.

    SOMETHING WRONG HERE...When looking at leaf spring, distance from center bolt to front perch is shorter than center bolt to rear hanger: wonder if springs got re-installed backwards?[​IMG]

  19. That would mean lengthening of the drive shaft....
     
  20. I know where there is one in a guy's shop, don't think he even knows what it is, believe it's for sale. Your coupe is just great, can't say anymore.
     
  21. They sure have cool headlights!
