I recently started a Bantam street rod conversion from a dragster body I picked up at the San Antonio IPMS meet last February




I found an Interior in the parts bin that will fill the bill with a little hacking

Very interesting idea! All Bantam models I've seen were extreme drag cars. This could be a real beauty!

I remember applauding your rescue of a body section and building something from it, so

It looks great in the last photo, though just a piece of the rear and the frame it already has a feel to it. Looking forward to seeing this one develop!

Thanks for all the comments and support. It keeps you going. I've made a little more progress and here is what I've assembled together for the build along with a mock-up. One of these day's I'll get the firewall to engine spacing down; but, I'll press forward with this one. Key components I need are headlights, a wind screen, and a dash.









Thanks for looking,

Chris

Nice! There's already a strong 'personality' to this build - can't wait to see more

I like where you are heading with this one Chris.

If you can find one, may I suggest a Duval windscreen? That would look way cool.

My hectic schedule only allows me to build in small snippets of time. Here is some of the progress made on the Bantam. For the plug wires I used a heavier gauge beading wire then I usually employ. I usually use a radio shack wire that is more to scale and is easier to shape to how you want it to lay.
