Yup you got it, two old boys were racing a couple weeks ago and wrecked the 57 Chevy they had. Now they are in a scramble to get the car ready for the big race coming up. They heard of a guy that had some old scrap car bodies on his property so they took a drive. They came accross a 59 Caddy vert body and a kustom Chrysler roof and quarter panel section. They thought lets combine them and build something..........

They kept the 57 Chevy chassis... spindles are Ford Fairlane (67)

So this is going to be an open wheel modified I take it? since the body has been narrowed and no front clip?
