I haven't posted in a while as I have been busy and didn't know how all the picture hosting was going to pan out. This is my first post using the direct uploading so I hope it works okay. Anyway this is build thread for the Thomas Rocket Car, or Car of Tomorrow as it was originally called, designed and built by Charles Thomas in Batavia, NY from 1936-1938. Here is the car as it appeared in 1941. The car is a completely hand fabricated 2-door sedan. It has unibody construction, 4 wheel independent suspension, dual master cylinders, four fender skirts, a periscope on the roof, hydraulic brakes, and a full belly pan. The design for this car was the thesis of Charles Thomas for his graduation from the GM Institute in 1935. The engine was a '36 Ford flathead with Ford 3 speed. The front suspension is custom independent swing arm using coil springs, the ends of a '36 Ford axle, some sort of pieced together hydraulics and '36 drums. The rearend is also independent created from a '36 banjo, custom half shafts, and swing arms with coil springs. Here are a couple of news stories on the car work has begun in the last two years. http://www.thebatavian.com/taxonomy/term/10033 I have been doing all the underside metal repair on the car at my home shop. Eventually the car will be restored and donated to the city of Batavia, NY to be on display for all to see. To say this car was rusty in an understatement. I have had to replace the entire belly pan, trunk floor and wheel wells, floor, rockers, lower quarters, and lower doors. Here is the day it arrived. I started with the trunk floor and worked my way forward. I have also documented the full metal work on Instagram at #thomasrocketcar and on my YouTube page. Here is the playlist.
