Looks to be a little high in the front for a Gasser, I believe the centerline of the front of the crank pulley couldn't be raised more than 24 inches from the ground in the Gas classes back in the day.

Very nice! I've wanted to do a '56 Ford gasser for decades. You are inspiring me to get on with it! B)

Maybe if he was building a 100% accurate replica of a gasser from the 50s your words would be relevant, but the intent is just a guy building a nice shelf model ,lets not take that away from him ,remember guys its called",modelcarsmag".anyway very nice work ,love that color😉

I'm not taking away that it's a nice model because it is and I do like it.
I only think the "Gasser" term is recklessly used nowadays for cars that doesn't fit within the gasser rules, just because the front is up in the air doesn't automaticly mean it's a Gasser...it needs more to be that.
Most of the drag cars had the front up high back in the day before the "wrinkle wall" slicks came out for easier weight transfer and many of the cars people today call Gassers are in fact Altereds.

I don't see where the builder calls it a gasser. Put some headlights and license plates on it and call it a Streat Freak!

Looks great! reminds me of a Ed Roth cartoon car!

Looks excellent Jim!

I really like the snappy paint job and choice of color too.  Also the natural looking tire patina is outstanding....all of this is just greatly enhanced by wonderful lighting and photography.

Love it!
