Nice build Paul. I'm surprised that there aren't more jalopy's being built. They were quite popular, in some parts of the country.

Very cool '34! I have a '32 Fordor in resin that would be ideal for this sort of thing. I've got some other projects going right now but this will give me time to look and learn since I have only rudimentary knowledge of these cars. I'm assuming the suspension and chassis would tend to be from the donor body's car with ost of the performance improvement coming from relatively mild hop ups (dual carbs?), the stiffening contributed by the roll cage, and better/wider wheels and tires.
Keep on buildin'

Yeah, those early AMT Deuce chassis are pretty "shockingly" crude. I have an AMT Phaeton chassis. At last I have a use for it!
