Here is the completed chassis. I used the tracing I made of the crossmember to make the crossmember brace. To this I added a pc. of .080 x .125 styrene to the inside of the brace. This levels up the engine. I used the front engine mount from the `32 ford sedan kit and the engine from the `40 Standard. The drive train i used is out of the `37 Pickup kit.

Pic 2, compare chassis.
The rear cross member is out of the `40 Standard , It is narrowed to the width of 1.500 inchs. Then mounted 2.200 inchs from the back of the cross member. Place close attention to the direction the curve of the cross member in which it is mounted.

I mounted the suspension and mocked it up using the `40 ford wheels and tires.

The body doesn`t have to be channeled but I think it looks better. These pics show it mocked up with the `40 Ford Standard engine. I am trying to use as many Revell parts as possible to ensure everyone can pick them up with out using resin.
