This is gonna be awesome.  Looks like your off to a great start. Imo I'd get rid of the running boards.

I thought about that, but decided to keep them to be as close to the puller as I could. I had to cut 13 3/4 scale inches off the bed to maker it work on the AMT '37 Chevy Coupe chassis. I'm working on a big block chevy for the power plant.

This is looking good so far. Keep going.

I went twice with a guy who had a monster truck. The OBS was at one show. I saw where the word Special was misspelled on the passenger door. Makes you wonder if he got a discount on the custom painting:D.

I want one, just not paying ebay prices. 

Honestly surprised Round2 hasn't reissued this one. I wouldn't build it as the OBS, probably convert to a street rod like Tim Boyd showed in that other mag. But this gasser is a drag truck is a great concept too.

This is a great idea, Phillip. I built mine as a low riding street rod truck with a flat bed, riding on a 40 Ford chassis and turned the pickup bed into a matching trailer. One thing I wish I had done prior to paint was tighten up the blower opening - the kit opening is huge, way too big for a 'normal" blown engine.  A gasser is a natural treatment for this subject yet I can't say I have ever seen one done this way.  I will be watching.

Cheers

Alan
