    I was looking on Fakebook and just saw a post asking who built this Dragster chassis it was in a French film called "Les Aventuriers" or "Last Adventure" in English, I think, from '67 but the O/P says there was no drag racing in France until about the 80's so it was probably built in America and assembled in France for the movie. I've seen diagrams of different dragster chassis in the past but didn't find anything when I did a search, it doesn't look like a Chassis Research car but more like a Kent Fuller car.
