For Sale - 55 Chevy Drag Car Rolling Chassis

This car is about 85-90% complete. It was originally built by Brad Hadman (Progressive Metalcraft, Inc.). At the time the car was built (August 1992) he was building alcohol funny cars for people like Pat Austin and his Uncle Bucky. The frame rails are 2X4 mild steel and rest of the chassis is chrome-moly with a funny car cage for the driver. It is TIG welded and powder coated. Car has not been on a scale but the weight estimate by the chassis builder was about 2100 lbs wet with driver, BB Chev, and Lenco. Car is set up for a big block Chev and 3 speed Lenco.

The body is all fiberglass by Harwood with a 3" chop. The Lexan windows are drilled for installation but still have to be installed. All the tin work is done. The wiring is about 98% complete. Batteries have to be installed and hooked up. The fuel pumps are wired up and plumbed. Fuel pump power goes through relays and the power wires have to be hooked up to a battery. Fuel lines are steel braided 1/2" hose and both the feed and return lines are installed from the 4 gallon fuel cell to the engine compartment. They need to be terminated and hooked up to a fuel regulator and/or carbs/fuel injection. Disc brakes and master cylinder are installed and plumbed.

Parachute and aluminum radiator with electric fan included. No engine, transmission, driveshaft, batteries, or seat belts. 9" Ford rear is narrowed, braced, and complete with Summers Brothers axles. Third member is nodular iron with Mark Williams lightweight spool and new Richmond Pro 4.86:1 gears.

Suspension consists of Strange struts in the front and double adjustable Koni coil-over shocks in the rear with 4-link and wheelie bars.

Rear tires are 16" wide by 33" tall on 15" Weld wheels. The wheels are 12" wide. The front tires are Goodyear Frontrunners 23.5" tall on 15" Weld wheels that are 3.5" wide.
