Barris T Buggy chassis, sand rail?

Hi guys, it's been awhile since I was here. Builders cramp, or maybe I hit the wall. I quit my job two weeks ago, and it actually was a relief! Not the panic I might have envisioned. I probably have a bus driving job in the near future.

I won't bore you with that anymore.

The reason for writing is the chassis in the Barris T Buggy. It looks a little funny for being a buggy chassis. Not your typical buggy chassis. Two narrow square frame rails, and then a Corvair engine and huge rear suspension. The front has a dragster or hot rod type slim front axle. I found some pic on fb, and the page/link had lots of neat old pics of buggys and wild sand rails. So I got to thinking if this chassis had been used as a sand rail kit before. I have not thought about, or seen anything like it. It has four holes on the front part of the rails, where you might add some sort of floor pan. Am I out on a limb here...??

Thanks Glenn! That's the same basic chassis. I never had that kit, but I figured it had to have been used in some other kit. Now I'll have to come up with something crazy.... sand dragster is nagging in my head. Cool to be back on this forum, and get help from fellow modelers!

Btw Glenn, are you related to Jon Asher?

Happy to help Hans! No relation to Jon Asher, either the drag racing photographer or the recording artist.

That kit would make the basis for a nice sand dragster!
