Project shorty Gasser !!

My friend came to me with a crazy Idea to do a shorty gasser,,, He has a 1957 chevy four door someone cut down into a shorty... Needs a lot of work to get it back right... I showed him this picture and said let's build one along these lines...He said go for it !!!!!!

But with the right size front tires..LOL

If I remember correctly, gassers had to retain stock wheelbase, but it could be a shorty altered.

Thanks guy's.. Should be a fun build for sure...I think the c-cab is in trouble..I have a cobra (factory five), pro street a 70 Mustang, Finish the nova, A wagon car, A 54 chevy truck, And A 58 corvette, and do the Sheet metal in a Camaro, Re-wire a race car, And a few other things also..

But I will find a way to slide the c-cab in sometimes..

They did a pretty good job,, Just not the way I would have done a few things... Not sure how long ago this car was done,, But a few things point that it was done a while back... Since I'm going to be cutting the whole front end off to do the straite axle, And cutting the back end as well.. I'm thinking on building a whole new frame..

If I cut the back and front of the frame.. I will only have about 2-3 feet of old frame left in the middle.. Right where they cut it to shorten it...The ladder bars can't be as long as I would like to make them either.. Or the would be mounted to the front axle..LOL

Like I said..Should be a fun build and a fun Ride..Wheelie bars for sure...
