No idea what it is. The wheels are just sitting in place alongside the body.
Who is the one that insists that real old time gassers were never way high in front

Awesome picture! I do believe this was in Idaho Springs, Colorado though. My dad was born there in 1915 and my grandpa owned 3 mines there at that time. I don't recognize him in the picture but I'll bet my grandad knew these tough miners. My dad took us back to explore these mines when I was a teenager as they were still in the family at that time.
^ You are correct; it was Colorado. Will correct post.
Here's another from CO, pic taken in '41 ~

My dad, mom, and grandpa (who I never got to meet) at side entrance to one of his mines in Idaho Springs, CO. Pic taken in late 30's before I was born.
This is not a real "old time gasser", since it's not NHRA legal. NHRA rules stipulated that the center-line of the front of the crankshaft could not be more than 24-inches from the ground. This looks to be more than that for sure. It is possible, however, that the car is jacked up (we really can't see under the car) and they are working on the I-beam front suspension, or whatever...
