I saw this run at the Funny Car Reunion at Englishtown a few years ago. Boy did the whole car twist due to torque when he left the line!!

John, this will be a cool build. I remember seeing this car when I was a kid at the Maryland tracks back in the day.

Count me in. I'll be watching what you do, and we all know it will be worth it. I will have more pics for your reference as soon as I can get them off the camera. I was at Bruce's again today for over three hours taking pics AND helping him fix the prototype of the 70 Camaro that he accidentally dropped. Fortunately most of the loose pieces were due to lack of glue or gluing areas that still had chrome. I got pics from different angles of the Camaro, Vette, and the Ivo dragster that I hadn't taken last time.

Looks like you have all the basics covered. The Logghe chassis in the Kenz & Leslie kit is right for the car. Replace the Ford SOHC with a good quality big block Chevy and you just about got it!

Hello......I started work on the chassis......I had to lengthen 3/8 of an inch........I dug out some rear daisy wheels and the right front wheels......I will scratch build some new shocks and I still need to do more modifications to the chassis.......I will scratch build new tins as well......I bought a 68 Corvette model.....I will use the big block engine for this build.......thanks for looking.

Nice start, the chassis is looking good, I'll be watching this as she comes to "life", the USA-1 was one of my favorite All-Chevy F/C's along with the Professor & Mr. Chevrolet himself.
