you should get the crate open and inspect for any shipping damage ASAP. If the shippers were as bad as you say they were, they might not have treated it very well while it was in there hands.. Altho I'm sure you had insurance on a product with such expense.

Street Beast 34Coupe Frame

Actually The only change we made is that the older frames were set up to accept only the early mustang 2 IFS suspension (Stamped ), now it can accept either that or a tubular A Arm front end . Minor change on the steering column bracketry, Thats basically it in the last 8 years

Answer's

Sorry to hold you guys up, I actually have a factory to run, but here ya go


1. Is StreetBeast still operating under the direct supervision of the Florida Attorney General's office? If so when do you expect to have all the complaints satisfied that caused this to happen?
Answer: When we bought Classic, it was in our contract to satisfy all open backorders, which was done. This company is not operating under any supervision of any governmental agency

2. Please explain how a customer goes about replacing a fender that was damaged in an accident? How long does he have to wait for a new fender??
Answer: Same way he would if he got into an accident in any other vehicle...DUH!! Replacement parts available ASAP

3. Please explain how many body parts made for a 34 Ford will interchange or fit on a StreetBeast 34.
Answer: Most of all the Trim , Headlights ,Taillights, bumpers , door locks and latches, never advertised it as a exact original

4. Please explain why your products deviate so much from the original.
Answer: Again ....never advertised as such

5. Please explain why your marketing is so deceptive.
Answer: Not sure that it is ?

U-h-h-h-h what am I missing here..........
While I have tried to remain positive with all that's said here - Your advertising calls it a '34 Ford. It isn't. Are you licensed by Ford to call it a FORD??

http://www.streetbeasts.com/ (Your website

As copied and pasted from your advertising:

"1934 Cabriolet Ford Kit Car System

Little compares to the thrill of driving the open road with the top down and the wind blowing through your hair.

A Ford Replica You’ll Be Proud to Drive!

A spin in the 34 Cabriolet Street Beast can deliver those thrills! Your Street Beast 34 Cabriolet Ford kit car is manufactured as an open car, yet, unlike a roadster, it features real, roll-up glass windows. At your option, you may add a Folding Convertible Top, a Removable Carson-Style Hardtop, or both, and have a Ford replica Beast for all seasons."

Other descriptions are similar.
Bolding is mine.

I really hope that Jay and his father have received a premium version after this thread and are able to be proud of their project when they are finished - but - it is still deceptive advertising.

Dave W.

PS - Bonnie and Clyde were killed in a common Fordor, not a Victoria as described in your literature

What do you do cut off a fender and replace it with what? Do you sell individual parts if so then why 1pc body? I would think cutting of 1 part and trying to replace it would suck on a 1 pc body.

Hey Jay, Open you and your Dad up a project journal and shoot pic of the build from every thing from taking it out of the crate to finishing and driving. I think it would cool to see your rod go from the crate to the road. Tim

Thanks,

That'd be very cool. Will do once it's done. I'm expecting the tubular 'A' arms to Pop once the rod is painted and everything.

corvettes don't have fenders that are external of the main body never did, so if were talking about fender replacement ( which we are ). corvette knowladge is useless.. newer corvettes are SMC which is simmilar to fiberglass but still diffrent.

If a Fender got damaged and needed replacement, how would it be held square? what is the best way to cut off the damaged fender?


with an increse in street rod accidents over the past couple of years. replacement of parts are becoming an issue... telling potential customers to fix it like a corvette, isn't real assuring. IMO anyway

Repairs

I don't know what you want me to say, if a car gets into a wreck, whether its the fender , door, trunk lid, , the damaged part can be ordered, we send front clips out all the time , damaged part cut out and the new part needs to be glassed in obviously by some who does professional fiberglass work, as for the one piece body, we designed it because it structurally stronger , up to 3/8 inch thick and even thicker in your stress areas, the whole body is steel reinforced , even the running boards, if this answer isnt good enough , we have a opening for a R&D manager , you can feel free to stop in and fill out an application , maybe you something to offer us
