Update: Found a rear end, perfect for a beginning. I should be able to pick it up Saturday, along with the missle body.

Comes with some 16in x 5in wide original wheels, one original baby moon hubcap... We'll see how it all goes.

It's a start.

Next up, a front drop axle... notch the body out for the axles to fit/sit there... and it can actually roll around (well, I'll be able to move it around easily in my driveway.

Then it's on to more cutting & prep... LOL

all solid.. just like that... great.

if you tilt the 'rocket' slightly forwards.. so that the diff sits just below the shell,
and you end up with more of a straight upper contour...
... could look mean, don't you think?

Kelly, that thing is gonna be sweet! We have a Bonneville car as well. 21' lakester powered by a Ford flatty. The car actually holds a record in the XF class last i checked. The PO had a turboe'd flathead in it. Ours is injected and runs on Alky. Quite a bit of fun if i do say so myself.

Update: Gonna try to get the "bomb" and the rear axle this weekend. The plan is to get it here, cut off any excess... notch out a place for the rear axle and set the tube on the axle.

Then, we'll rig up a front swivel steely wheel to move it around.

Stay tuned.

Nothing like a little yard work.

In all, 13 4in cutoff wheels, a whole lotta effort... and thanks to my friend the Tree in my yard... it's almost a roller.

I started to cringe when I thought the body was also 1/4 in steel, but it turned out to be less than that...

Anyway... some steel wool soap pads later to give it a little bath... and She's taking on a little personality I think.

6 hours later... and I'm very tired.

Kelly's neighbours:

"Hey Martha, call the cops! Y'know that weird dude across the street, that keeps riding around in them weird little cars? He's got a BOMB in his driveway! I thought he looked like one'a them types!"

LOL

That thing looks mean already!

two cuts two lights two chromehorns...
oh and a badge...
it's the best start I could imagine.
but because it's the best I can imagine means it's somewhere in the lower third of what Kelly is capable of.

So yes, I like it,
but I expect nothing less than the next "benchmark in style and appeal"
for similar vehicles.

No pressure buddy

That looks awesome!! Was the back axle fixed in place already or was the bomb just resting on it?

Another thing....could you see with sitting so low, or will you be a bit higher up when it is done
