What do ya think ...??
She sure looks fast to me.
To much ground clearance!!!
A few parts short of a full ride.
I can easily shorten my rear axle tubes to achieve a good ride height.
Four wheel drive??
Tip it upside down & it will be underslung
Weld some big coil springs in the 'bells' and go hopping like a slinky.
WOW, A lowered, underslung, 4 wheel drive Slinky. This may be the Coolest Speedster yet ...
Smooth, Sleek and Simple. I like it.
Looks like the start of a 26 or 27 to me. missing a lot of parts.
Put a lawn chair on it, grab a steering wheel, and make some engine sounds as you pretend to drive it!
It's all about horsepower to weight ratio. You've got the weight part down..........
I forgot, Donnie, Box the frame from front to rear with 1/4" to 1/2" plate and weld in at least three additional crossmembers, made of 2" square tubing. That ought to be enough to handle all the horsepower that you can pull out of a T engine (or Model A, or V8 60, for that matter).
Donnie, if i were you i would bolt on a couple of modified 50 gal. drums and have the the worlds best T themed barbecue station!
Steve Jelf, I see a good potential use for all of those rear axle housings that you saved from the scrapper...
Ok: All joking aside, This is the start of this winters project. I have been collecting parts for a speedster for about 25 years. I have a set of Disteel wheels, Laurel under slinging parts, lots of aftermarket head choices, a 3 inch lowered rear crossmember, several radiator and shell choices, and lots more ect. And I finally found an original body at Chickasha last year. So Im hoping to have at least the body and chassis done by spring. Ill post progress, as I proceed. For now Im just getting everything in the shop before bad weather sets in. Mark, there were no good, or useable, rear axle housings harmed in the filming of this thread ...
I will enjoy seeing the progress. Have fun with it.
I honestly thought you had bought a old work bench! I started with about that much so it can be done.
ok, is it going to be a walker or a roller?
Donnie, I think you will have to miss Mike Walkers tour coming up soon.
if you throw a piece of plywood over it it is a good start to a workbench
Donnie, At least your further along then I am with mine. My frames are standing on end in the corner of my shop. Jim
Warwick, beat me , 4 wheel drive here too.
