After just over a year, I rolled out my '13 chassis this afternoon. Here are a few photos. Hope to get the body on in a week or two. I've added some shots of the simplicity of the authentic Rocky Mountain design as well. I will never have this car judged, ever!. I'll add to this collection in the next few weeks as things progress.

Glad to see that you got all of the original Rocky linkage! :-)

I would like to add, if I can find original Rocky Mountain linkage, why couldn't Jack Sunderlin find that stuff back in the mid-sixties when he reproduced the first series? They are so simple, and work so well.

Holy moley. That's looking great!
I know you don't post pics here often but if you have the notion to, would you post a pic from the driver's side of the Rocky Mountain's bell-crank mounted on or very close to the U-joint AND the mount point for the R-M spring return rod on the rear axle?
I don't know what they called it back then, but bell-crank is at least 30 years old in my world. :-)
Hah! Perhaps they called it a multiplying lever... :-)
Very interesting things from a fella's T that could very well be judged. :-)
Thank you. :-)

Larry, Looks great! Looks like you're making good progress. I look forward to more pictures.

Ellen said she'll trade Hershey cookies for a ride when you get it done.
