Antone Addesso 36 Dodge Coupe

12 May 2014 - 11:22 PM

Hi all,

I like building obscure race cars. This one caught my eye, with its use of a coil sprung front end rather than the usual leaf springs.

Again it seems like there is only the one photo of it in this configuration with these unusual headers.

I started by building a chassis based on the best guess principal. Im happy to alter it if someone has any better info.

Since I cant find a 36 Dodge body anywhere, Ive used a 39 Chev Coupe from my parts bin. I'll reshape the B Pillar and windscreen areas to better match the Dodge.

Very much still in the mockup stage.

"Dirty Thirty" 33 Willys

Well I've used the long weekend and wet weather to final finish another one. This one has been fighting me every step of its creation. Taken me almost 18 months, but stick a fork in it..coz its done!! 
Its a replica of a car that raced in the Sixties. There is a only one known photo of it in this configuration so I've been as accurate as I can in most aspects but other have been an educated guess.  The only kit part is the body and some small parts. Everything else I've had to make from scratch.
