This build is inspired by the very early front engine dragsters such as Dick Craft’s “The Bug” and the HA/GR H.A.M.B dragsters. It will be built as a “barn find” brought back to life in all it’s rusted and dirty glory. The imagined builder was on a budget with limited resources. This build would not pass any current inspection and was inspired by the days when guys risked life and limb in the name of speed. Most parts are from the 31 Revel Woody kit. the rear end is from the 50 AMT chevy truck. front tires from the wild willie borsch kit. Seat, gas tank, break lever and pedals are scratchbuilt The plan is to convert the 2 port Riley OHV head to a 4 port head w/ straight header pipes. A crude, square role bar is in the works. Question/Advice: should I keep the front mounted gas tank? Were there mechanical fuel pumps for these motors? I could feasibly tuck a fuel can behind the firewall to provide a gravity fed fuel delivery. The battery will have to be front mounted since the seat is on top of the rear end.
