Based on a resin 1934 Ford Roadster body courtesy of Chuck Mier at Altered States Models (http://www.alteredstatesmodels.com/) and the chassis, interior and front clip from an AMT ’34 Ford 5-window coupe, this early postwar style dry lakes racer is part of a race team set along with a ’40 Ford sedan delivery and a scratch built trailer. The modifications and fabrication on this car were extensive. Here’s a breakdown of the parts used for both the roadster and for the trailer.
