Really like this build!  Tell us some more about it.  Did you have to reposition those rear wheel openings on the Rat Packer body to get them closer to a stock position, (even tho they're opened-up so large)?  What did you use for your chassis underneath?   Did you scratchbuild the rollcage?  Where'd that engine come from? 

 

Great, great build; I love the subject-matter!

Thanks guys,,,,

Hey Mark, the roll cage is built from bits and pieces. The chassis is from the Orange Hauler show rod that is originally based on a 55 Chevy, Raer wheel wells??? Let's just say I took the time to return them to stock location only to have it not matter 'cause by the time I opened them up it didn't matter one bit!! Oh well right??!!

The engine I can't remember, this was built like 15 years ago....
