Blast from the pass.

This is my 140 HP Automatic 500 lb's trick from the 70's. Custom VDO dash with cruz control, three wheel disc brakes, Porsche Rack and adjustable Koni Shocks.

I drove this Rocket Ship for 2 care free years and these pictures were of the final design before painting, couldn't fine a side shot of the 14" tri spoke mags.

This was very fast all day long.

That is exactly what I am planning to do with a 68 95 pg powerpac I have. Have been scouting for lightweight a arms and spindles to get the front end to work right. Is there anymore details to go with pics?

I must say It was a cool idea.

Do you have any pictures of it finished.

It has no: carbs, belt, spark plugs, exhaust - logs or otherwise.

I love to see a finished pictures.


Thanks, Tony
