Commer / Dodge pickup rolling chassis drag car  project  

 For sale is a tubular chassis made from seamless 15/8" diameter steel tube to suit a drag racing spec of a 8.5 second class car.(not yet tagged)  Everything has been tig welded and constructed on a jig. The driver safety cell is a funny car style cage, mounted in a central position. The chassis has motor plates included to suit a big block chevy and a shorty powerglide transmission, or 2 speed lenco. The rear axel is narrowed a 12 bolt Chevy, with strange spool, semi floating shafts and 4.88 gears, and big disc brakes with Citroen calipers. The axel is mounted on Competiton Engineering 33" ladder bars, with adjustable mounting points and an A-frame track locator. The rear shocks are fron Leda and come with springs, although steel spacers are shown for set up purposes. The wheel base is 100".

The front suspension are shortened capri type coilover struts, no front springs are included). They are mounted by rose jointed, chrome moly tubular locator arms. The steering rack to suit the central driving position is from an early porsche 911, but is not mounted to the chassis yet. No steering colum is included, pedal assembly or floor. The wheels are genuine Centerline Pro Stock type, the fronts are 31/2" wide x 15" diameter with drag race 26" tall tryes. The rears are 14" wide x 15" diameter with a well used pair of 33" tall slicks. All wheels are 5 stud. no front brakes are included.

The body work is from two different Commer / Dodge van/ campers. The front cab section is bolted to the chassis at the sides,the back of the pick up cab are pieces from the rear corner of a van and will need welding together to form the finished body. The doors are steel and have hinges, the rear side panels are the lower half of a camper van and will need finishing on the top edge and are currently not fixed to the chassis in any way. No tailgate is included, but i do include two rear doors from a van that can be formed into a tail gate panel. Front and rear lights, 2 windscreens, front and rear bumpers and some badge lettering is included. The pickup sits very low and has had the bottom of the body panels removed. The last picture (side view) is a photoshoped image to illustrate how the bodywork can have wheel arches cut into it, to replicate the original look of the Commer.

Basically, what you see is what you get, EXCEPT the engine, intake, carbs, headers, rockers covers and gearbox  that are shown for illustration purposes only and are NOT included!

This is a well constructed start to a unique drag race project. It still requires extensive work,  fabrication and parts. The vehicle has no id numbers, chassis numbers, log book, VIN plate or identity. It is not intended to be road legal and is made for drag racing only. 

I'm located near Oxford and the vehicle can be viewed on request. call 0781 8870135 for more info. cash on collection preffered
