My chasis for my Model A after I re-built it.
Ya'll seen the "513 tub" on the cover of R&C last month? Here's the chassis at a show a few years back.
I have more of other cars I'll post in time..
One of my favorites...Pat Ganahl's 32 Roadster
Well i won't post a picture of mine because it is a TCI style A but what a great bunch of shots and great ideas for me to make my exhaust work. thanks
Wow, what a great thread!
I actuully prefer the old shots, that one of them manhandling the y block and trans in there is great!
Great thread indeed! I'd add mine except it's got a crappy T-5, ha!
Damn Street Rodders.... Are we talking about the Model 40 chassis?
Great so far, more please!
99% of the true time period correct would include crappy welds and unfinished torched off pieces plus various unsafe measures thru out the car
Great, throw up the photos and we'll make note of what not to replicate.
Shhh! Icksnay on the odelma ortyfa! I was referring to my Chevy!
Oh I thought a model 40 WAS a Chevy truck no?
What a great thread. Lots of ideas, keep 'em coming!
Perfect timing for a great thread. My '32 chassis will arrive tomorrow. Can't wait.
I vote yes!
a few some i built.
Great thread. I would like to see Mark Morton's 32 roadster chassis again. It's the black full fendered car from a few years ago at the Hop Up booth. The picture was up for a while and then disappeared. Anybody have it?
a few more.
I am running another thread and here are some recent pics of the painted and assembled chassis.40 Ford brakes,327/350,triple Rochesters etc.
Will have a 32 roadster body from Show Me Rod & Custom with 2 inch longer doors and cabin,channelled the depth of the rails.
Hopefully body will be painted this week and final assembly started.
Hey Danny.... you should think about doing this for a living......
See the first two words in the title of this thread............????????????
5 speeds are not fucking traditional! Dont ruin this thread with that shit!
F1 steering box's dont really fall into the "truly traditional and period perfect" paradigm either.
Depends on the era. There were plenty of F-1 and F-100 boxes in use by the mid to late 50's. Earlier than that...then stock Ford or '37 Hudson and the like would be fitting. But you did see them installed with welded kickouts in the frame, rather that new flanges welded on the box.
I usually imagine the frame painted semi-gloss, but these full-gloss beauties are kinda making me rethink my plans for one of my current projects... really really slick!
