Straightliner59 Posted August 27, 2019 Share Posted August 27, 2019 (edited) This is an idea I have been pondering/wanting to build, for some time. At some point, while working on the Surfers' chassis, my vision for it became clearer, so, I took a while, and began to pull it all together. I have been wanting a traditional hot rod, for several years--not a rat rod, but, just a nice, clean old school rod. This features the Monogram body and chassis. I think the front axle is from Monogram's Model A Woody. I did the front wheels over 20 years ago, and have been shuffling around between possible projects. They'll finally find a home, here. The rear tires are castings that someone made from some (I think) AMT Indy car tires. I chucked them in the lathe, and narrowed them, to better suit this project. I'll use the rear axle and rear wheels from Monogram's '37 Ford pickup. Engine will be the four banger with a simple header, and a two-carb downdraft manifold. I'll play with the stance, a bit. I will likely open the roof and install wood cross braces. I was thinking of a TROG racer, but, until I look deeper into the rules, I will hold off, on that. Anyway...so far, it looks like I have planned. Questions, comments and critiques welcome (as always!).
