    Please disregard the front suspension on this frame, but look at the Bell style holes on the side rails. I have seen this before but I don't know what time period it was from? Can anyone help?

    I finally found out what this frame is underneath.. FalconGeorge posted in another thread and I came across it earlier today. I'm not too sure about the exhaust because I don't see it but everything else matches up pretty good.

    So you said period perfect '60s too. Here's mine - I love the trad look, but I like to drive fast and long. So here's my traditional "style" chassis. Disk brakes, yeah - drums cost twice as much as disks and I like to stop even at highway speeds. I understand the idea of the thread, but unless you drag it out of a barn, even a traditional chassis will have some nod to safety and performance, no?

    LOVE the Indy stuff on that roadster, Danny!!

    Wow, That is a blast from the past. This is what I remember. I don't think I could recreat a car like that, it just would not be the same feel. I really like to look at old builds, even with their quirks.
     
  18. Holy shit theres some good looking chassis on here, Truly insperational.
    Lets keep this thread going!!

    Yeah, how about some more damn it! I think I need an original chassis for my phaeton but every time I look at the one I have I change my mind. I need inspiration so cough them up!

    Not 32 frames but they both have 32 X members (& no 5 speeds, coilovers, disc brakes...)

    I think I could own this just as a work of art and never actually put a body on it.
