57 chevy gasser project
 
another project I'm just getting started on. solid front and rear axles, tilt front end, custom chassis, full interior and a detailed blown hemi engine.

this is kinda what I'm goin for... even though this is a 55 model but you get the idea...



and my starting point...

and where do you get those tyres / what brand are they?

THE_JOKER 03-25-2009 10:01 AM

oh i gotta have a go at one of them!!!!

what scale is that body? and what HELRZR said....where you get those tyres??

SICK I have been intrigued by those wheels and tires as well...
They looked great on your V-Rod.. but the artilery style wheels look good on there as well...
IMHO go with steelies for the rear, and spindle mounts up front...
Here is a great vid of my buddy Kevin smokin up his Ford gasser....
usually he runs silver and black steelies on the rear (pie cut painted..)

Can't believe you mucked up a good thread with a ford vid.....JK

Gassers are a weakness that I've come so close to building(fullsize). I'll be watching this one unfold.

King_Lift 03-25-2009 07:51 PM
