Thumbs up street legal jalopy/vintage fenderless oval race car 1940lSH MOPAR tribute to DAD

ya, l know, a tribute car,,,seems to be my thing lately for some reason & l can't figure out why


l started working on the vintage modified/dirt jalopy street legal race car today.

this will be a slow build, but a fun one.

a two tone red is what l am planning for a paint scheme.

a SBC 350 will power this thing, auto tranny & rearend yet to be determend.

l'm going to remove about 24'' out of the middle and make it a two door. l want to leave the windshield, glass in the doors, side rear windows and back window.

the basis for this build is a track legal 2001 dirt car modified chassis, with all the adjustable suspension so l can tune it the way l l like it to ride and handle.

l will try and finish it in a year or so, then l want to get sponsers or whatever shows and tracks l can take it to for the purpose of raising funds for cancer awareness and research.

l lost dad, mom, several other family members and some real good friends to this awful disease.

l know many other have had this happen in there lives or had cancer themselves.

this in some small way is my way of giving back to the good people who helped us doing the hard times.

[and l beat ya to 2OOO posts, haahahaahahahhahaaaahahaa]

ya really need to get that old girl going SF, l hope ya beat me by a long time.

today's plan, cut the roof and remove the back 1/2 of the body off the frame.
gonna start with 21 1/2" removed from the car and trim to fit, it's always easier to cut than to add metal.

l don't feel bad about cuttin' up this car, the floor pans & trunk were almost completely rusted out, as in non existent anymore, and the area under the doors is completely gone. it would cost more to fix this car than it is worth, so a HOT ROD she will be.
