Thought it would. I knew right off what you meant, done that many times for arched doorways and windows.

Thats just cool, how long have you been working on that,putting everything together? Did you start with a frame or did you build that from scratch ? Ever think about making it 4-wheel drive? "probably a few times I'm sure " lol

It has a 16 horsepower opposed twin,4 speed tranimission out of a early chevy with granny gear and a narrowed ford rear end


kudos for the glass work but I like just like it sits in this picture!!

details on the narrowed rear... did you do it or find it out of an old race car? if you did it, what did it cost you to cut and respline the shafts?

The only thing i have done to it was find an engine for it and cut the fiberglass pieces for it.The tranny shifter forks were in a box when i got it
I have not done much to it lately,i have got the bumpers at work(fiberglass) and am going to make the back bed wider,also have that piece at work
I did get a different 16 horse twin briggs for it just like the one i had on it,found on craigslist,bought it for the tin because mine was all rusting away,after i got it home it was in better shape all around so i now have a spare for parts
