Ok I mounted the body to the chassis.I decided to mount the interior tub first followed by the chassis.Fit was generally good ,but I had to put the tub into the front first and carefully pry the tub to fit the slots in the body .The chassis required clamps to mount securely.

Yes, that is a very interesting set-up indeed. Don't believe I ever saw one like it except for a street rod with a jaguar engine that had side draft set-up.

Stay safe.

Lovin on it over here !! As I  said in another post, the 57 Chrysler lineup has a place in heart from times past.That's Chrysler Dodge and Plymouth. Your build replicates one example well !

Eugene!

 

             Could you have gotten any Redder? That is certainly unmistakeable to my vision. Again, a wonderful job!! I like the tan interior especially!
