Engine looks fantastic B) ! Roll cage can be fairly simple in this kind of car. For my '57 Nomad Gasser that I did few years ago, I fabricated simple roll bar (bit like in your Simca). That should be enough, I guess.

Little inspiration:

I managed to get decals on, only a few sponsors this time. They were old decals and were quite difficult to get set right, but they're okay and I'm planning to clear coat this one tomorrow. Also I got the battery installed.

That Nomad gave me lots of more inpiration! Thank's Niko! ;) And your Simca looks very good! Cant wait to see it finished in person. ;)

And update to Nomad. It's painted now and i'm very happy to the result. Color is Motox silver and clear coat is Maston metallic so there's a lots of sparkle on that body. B) Hood and Chassis is painted semigloss black. Now i had to paint rear and front axles and front wheels so i can start chassis assembly. Here's one pic of body.

Well... turns out my Hornet Anglia will need a lot more cutting and trimming than I thought, so I ended up getting a started glue bomb for parts as a backup plan. Hopefully I'll actually have some progress to report shortly.

My attempt at a Gasser. I usually like having pics of original vehicles to help but could'nt find any of a 50 Chev Pickup Gasser.

Using the Badman kit for suspension and the 3100 Chev pickup kit for everything else.

A parts bin SS 427 Blown and Injected. ( Different engine from the one shown in the pics.)

Yeah! This'll be interesting, as said earlier. Looks good so far and thanks for joining in. B)  Maybe this gives me the inspiration to take out '41 Plymouth and get going again.

Hey pencil me in too. I got a partial '39 Chevy coupe in a trade earlier and I think it'll make a groovy gasser.

I will be using a 235 I-6 from a Monogram '53 Chevy. (Trying to keep it all 1/24)

Rear tires/wheels are from the Boothill Express.

You're on the list, Rob. Very interesting build you have there, can't wait to see more. Never seen Chevy Straight Six (Blue Flame?) in a Gasser, so I'm really looking forward for this one. B)

Both builds look good! Rob's stance is just perfect, I really like the white walls.

 

Ian's door looks excellent, that opened vent is excellent idea, too, never thought of doing it.

 

I took the Plymouth on the bench again, I'll post some pics tomorrow. Engine is getting there, and I also started making the rear fender wells of the body bigger to fit those slicks in.
