         Steel axle=little divot in oil pan? No large hole circa 1962. just as playable as those "three in one kits"of yore? Yup,roll away son, daughter, grand kids. sturdier than the midget kits? Yup. Unpainted? Yup. Roth kits, stock build possible,?Nope! Daniels kits, stock builds possible? Nope.  There is no way this truck could be built stock. The design was done over many years, and finally found by his dad. The original truck was bought by Chip from his dad, hot-rodded many times and finally stolen!  Our was it? In the hands of Chip's dad, and re-invented as designed by Chip,the truck was built nights and weekends by the Foose A-team from "Overhaulin" as a birthday surprise, while the shows episodes continued to be filmed.The birthday episode was  shown on TV. About the kit, New design chassis?  Yup, New styrene? Yup.

    The  Bora was a joint project between Citroen and Maserati, they may have owned Maserati t the time. The odd bits of a Bora are normal for a Citroen, classic French engineering. Add classic Italian engine(ering) and voila the BORA. 
    A little more to think about. Walt O'Brien

    By using a rack and pinion steering system you eliminated the need for a steering box, just saying! Great build, would make a great push truck for an LSR 29 roadster. Hit the salt.

    Engine is from the 34 Ford pickup. factory style headers are available in that kit, Along with short exhaust extensions that might work.

    Have you considered using the suspension, frame, sbc from the Roth T-bucket to back-date the chassis to a mid-50's channeled model A?

    Fairlane was the name of Edsel Ford's Michigan Estate, it was used for full size cars from 55-61 then moved to the smaller chassis in 62-68 (?) A Factory race only 427 big block first appeared in 63 but the most famous were the factory 64s. In 66 Ford offered the 427 in the Fairlane, AMT kitted both the 390 and 427 Fairlane along with the 390 Mercury.Comet.
