Chuck and I made a trip over to see Bill this weekend and helped him set the body over onto the chassis. Bill has a few more bars to install like finish the X brace instead of leaving it a Y brace (We were joking about that yesterday?

Anyway, it was cold however we managed. Mazy was trying to help me when I was cutting on the body. I have a picture of her but I haven't uploaded it yet.

Chuck was in the car making "Uddeenn....... Uddeennn" sounds while holding the steering wheel in place Razz

Man the chassis looks freakin' AWESOME!!! I got the impression that Chuck was a little 'stunned' or overwhelmed. The car is starting to take shape and I have to admit, I'm getting a little excited about the project as well. I can't say enouth about what Bill is doing for Chuck and Bill's workmanship is freakin' AWESOME!! Did I say that already? If ANY of you guys need a simple roll bar installed or a full boogie chrome moly chassis, I suggest you give Bill a call.

Anyway, here's some of Bill's pictures. I'll get mine uploaded shortly but they are about the same as Bill's except I have the one picture of Mazy and a picture of Chuck in the car making those funnys sounds lol!

All of the pictures can be seen on Bill's photobucke page and mine

Here's Bill's

Even better bad ass pics are still to come. Just wait till Bill gets a front fender & wheels/tires mocked up under it, that's going to be the best. Just something about the way these 69-70's look in big tired/full chassis trim that cant be beat. Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

I could not agree with Dave more. If I would not be so far along on my 62, and have such a desire to do a 62, I would have redone the Boss car we just sold and raced it for a while. Of coarse time and money is always a factor, and when it seems like you have one you don't have another.

Is this a chassis kit or shop design?? Apperars to be coming along quite quickly and you are right the craftsmanship looks mighty fine.

Post  85montess on December 8th 2009, 11:38 am

Thanks guys. It is a custom built chassis that I have been designing around Chuck and the car. Making the hoop tall enough for Chuck to have room under the FC cage did make it easy to fit the large tires under the quarter panel lines at the top. The main hoop will be right against the roof of the car, but to allow this I have to trim the extra framework around the back glass to allow room for the FC cage. I am setting it up for 16x33 rear slicks and 25-26" front tires and the frame height will be about 5 1/2" in the front and about 7" in the rear. Right now, I am working on getting all of the brackets and tabs that will be needed on the chassis and the steel floors and firewall, so that it can be painted and then assembled. The front suspension and rear suspension will be acquired later along with the wheels and tires, so it appears that it will be some time before there are mock up pictures with the wheels and tires, unless I take them off of my car.

Later,

Later,

You have to admire someone with the talent you have. How about some details on the Monte you run?? I am ford blue to the core but am real interested in your ride no matter what favor it is.

Thanks again, Travis.
My car is a mild steel tube chassis car that I put together back in 1995-96 with a strut front end and a 4-link with 16x33 slicks. I had bought an Art Morrison chassis kit, and after that experience is when I bought my tubing bender and started custom bending cages. It has a VFN fiberglass front end, doors, trunk lid, and rear bumper shell. I have a cowl induction hood on it now that weighs a ton, so I am planning on changing that this winter when I go back to my tunnel ram. The car weighs about 2700lbs with me in it and with the Dart block BBC 539, Ford 9" rear, and powerglide.

When in Florida, I had run a bunch of 8.90's @ 152 with the 1/8th mile times being 5.69. This year, I have only been running the 1/8th and I have gotten it to run a 5.62 @ 121.7. I hope to finish porting my Dart 320 heads and add some 2.325" or 2.350" valves (same as the .250 long valves for the BB Ford) to them and along with the Dart tunnel ram try to get it into the 5.40's next year.

Thanks for asking,

Chuck, you are going to have one bad motor scooter when it is all said & done with!!!! Bill, your fabrication work is flat out awesome. I always wondered how Haase could build a chassis & squeeze 6'9" Larry Nance into it.. Very Happy

Thanks for asking,


Not a problem at all. I have never built a fulll tube car myself but know the pains of trying to make a stock floor board car work and look tasteful at the same time. Sometimes I think the full tube deal looks easier just for the sake that you have a little more control of what the end product will look like and yet be more functional when finished. I willl say that your car is lighter than I expected being a mild steel car and all. The Monte is definatley no Fox body or Vega either as far as size and aeroshape. Again nice work and crafstmanship. I would love to do a full tube car just for the experience.

Right now I have a 63 Tempest here for a backhalf 10" tire deal, ladder bars, frame rails, coil overs and tubs without altering the interior to much. Also is getting a full cage and some sheetmetal modifications as far as stretching the stock quarter panels to accept a 30-31" tire without looking hacked up. I am doing it for a good friend who actually is a very competitive little racer and has won quite a few races in his second year with the Pontiac guys.

Then there is my own project, A 62 Galaxie ............... better not even start to tell you about it......you would think I am nuts Razz

Sometimes you would swear that some of these tall guys must have their butts sitting way lower than the floor bars, with their asses just hanging out in the breeze, in some of these smaller door cars. But then it wouldn't be long before the SFI would have to step in and create some new regulations for SFI legal ass skid plates made of Titanium & strapped to the driver's butt for added protection.

Bill said he's about finished with all the tubes and the chassis is about ready for paint. I need to get over to Chuck's and order the wheels and maybe tires unless someone had a used set of 33 X 16's from a dragster that we can scavenge for now.

Damon, I will talk with Rick tomorrow & see if he still has my old Goodyear 2556's in the shop. They are 33 x 17 with 102" roll out. I think the section width is 21" & diameter is 32.8". If they are still there, you & Chuck are more than welcome to have them. I wouldn't buy new slicks until you are ready to race. Very Happy
