I drug out my old pete drag truck for a rebuild, that turned into an overhaul. Actually, most of the original kit didnt get reused. So much for a rebuild !! Anyhow, I decided to stretch it out, lower the body, and add two Allison V12s behind the cab. I started by taking some measurements,and scratchbuilding a whole new chassis.I used the rear axles and air ride from a Pete 378 kit.
I started stretching out the body, but still using most of the kit at this point.
I was quickly unsatisfied with this, so I build a new rear section still using the kit rear fenders. I bought a Jimmy Flintstone chopped resin Pete cab, and narrowed the hood to a 351 style. I replaced the front fenders and sunk them futher up into the hood.
After much Allison applied drag racing research, I started putting them together. I joined them crank to crank with a collar. I wanted almost a direct drive to the rear ends, with only a short driveshaft. I made the motor mounts and got them mocked up. The body is 90% complete. Then, lots of sanding and blending.
