Nice build on that Ranchero but it would never qualify as a gasser.

Plenty of ground clearance there. You wouldn't have to worry 'bout that Possum crossing the track!

Wild! I used to own a 61 Falcon Ranchero. I lived in Oak Ridge, TN and it was an old Atomic Energy Commission vehicle. I put some mags on it and a C4 transmission. It was a neat ride. I want to build a replica of it some day.

Thank You all for looking and the comments!

Your time and consideration is appreciated, a lot.

Yeah, it is a nose-bleeder, but, it's "my" nose bleed.

:rolleyes:

I got a kick out of the decal on the tailgate... "NHRA RECORD HOLDER". Must be the record for altitude! :D

I remember seeing cars simular to this driving around the local drive-in restaurant back in the late '60s. I always liked them from a distance. You would be up there high enough to see everything around you except whats in front or you. You almost need a hole in the floor to see the road. Don't get me wrong, I like it! :)

It wouldn't qualify as a Gasser to run in any Gas class because the front end is way too high. Gas class rules call for the body to remain level, in spite of all these sky high front ends you see on "gasser" models. See the rules under "Body." You could get away with SOME added height in the front but not that much. Also, the engine crankshaft centerline was limited to be no more than 24" above the ground. In 1/25th scale that would be one inch. See "Engine." Has to have a hood. Also doesn't have any inner fenderwells...had to have them too with any fenderwell header openings being no more than 2" away from the header tubes. See "Fender Splash Pans."

If you are really interested in building a "legal" gasser, here are the rulebook pages from a 1970 NHRA rulebook for the Gas classes.... I have the entire rulebook posted on my Fotki site here....http://public.fotki....nhra-rulebooks/ Hope this helps you!
