No! It'll be way more goofy as an early! Haha.

Plus the flat side glass will be a bonus. I've spent some time studying it and I have a good idea how to make it all work. Maybe someday haha

Haha. That's on my to do list when I hit the lottery. Except I'll start with a car that isn't rusty and hasn't been totalled lol

Cody: If you're interested in putting a radial airplane engine in a Rampside I would share all my research and footwork with you.

Radial engines were also used in WWII tanks and boats...they had cooling fan shrouds and used clutch assemblies in place of the prop.

Here's the concept that I'm working on now. I know that a lot of you on the forum don't like the big wheel look, but I'm a huge fan I'm also a fan of patina, so I'll be leaving the body alone. I'll post pics of the build as I go. Right now I'm have the rear suspension apart, and I have a really neat set up going in. I'm waiting on a 2" drop from American Flat 6 for the front. I've already test fitted the 245 35 20's on the rear and there seems to be plenty of room in the stock wheel opening, even with the suspension 1" lower than it was with the saggy stock springs. The front will get a set of 18's, but I'm not sure on tire size yet, probably around 215 though. Please forgive the photoshop work, that is not one of my strong points...

Should be a fun cruiser...but no "custom bodywork"?

It's got plenty of custom bodywork from the 55 years of previous driving! I've figured out over the years that if I have something shiny and nice I can't enjoy it because I'm always worried about it. Plus I'm actually a fan of this look, I love it!

I realy like this photoshopped LM wagon.
Picture id from a CCF post sometime back.
The photo was labeled "rgaultslmwagon".
Now something like this in a 2-door would be rockin it!
