Skip, I agree the Anglia wheels are pretty cool.. Got to change the rear wheels too. Need narrower, shorter slicks and some period correct narrower wheels. Probably an 8" by 28" slick and an 8" wheel. Maybe Cragers or a five slot.

Thanks for your replies, Bob. I also like the Anglia wheel.

Winter is in the air so I juggled cars around for the cold weather building season. The roadster PU and dragster are berthed in the back garage and I brought the roadster body forward. Plan is to finish the welding and bracing on it and probably get it mounted on the '29 Dodge frame laying in the trees. The Crosley body is ready to come off the frame (tomorrow) and the 406 small block out of the Crosley will find its way into the Bantam. Trouble is its 13 to 1 compression and will probably require race gas on the street.

The difference between you and me Pops, is, you're sane.

It happened again. This thread is supposed to be about building a Jeep 6 engine. Now, it's about completely redoing the Crosley to make it lighter, better designed, prettier and accept the Jeep engine. It needs a major clean up too. I managed to separate the body from the frame today.

Did you find the handling problem? Bushing?

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

After I got the body off I devoted the rest of the day to mowing and leaf removal. So no, I haven't checked it out yet. I doubt it's a bushing in the rear because they all were replaced with 3/4" rod ends. I'll cut all the unnecessary bracket off the frame, then run a centerline string and start measuring.

The chassis will get new paint. With the yellow body I'm thinking tan, brown or medium blue.
