Traditional or not, I think this is fucking cool. Nice work!
My Dads roadster chassis
That looks awesome.
This is for my 34 three window.
Z-ed frame in '52
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 don't think I will post a picture of the rusty old frame I have but there are some great ideas and info here!
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.
Great thread - hope it stays alive and growing for ages to come.
Ditto. A worthy contribution to the endless debate.
You asked for it! That's me back in the 60's . Stick welded
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.
Holy shit theres some good looking chassis on here, Truly insperational.
Lets keep this thread going!!
I started screwing together another old deuce chassis this week and it got me thinking about this thread... so how about a few more...?
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!
Here are some period '32 chassis pics, circa 1950-51
Jimmy you are amassing quite the archive. Bless you young man.
Yea Jimmy, diggit... anyone else like hot rods around here?
great pics as always Jimmy
...I like hot rods.
Not 32 frames but they both have 32 X members (& no 5 speeds, coilovers, disc brakes...)
Subscribing so I can find this great thread again and
spend an hour or so of my life drooling over sexy frames!
This is absolutely a stunning chassis...
I think I could own this just as a work of art and never actually put a body on it.
