    project x

    Back in the summer I was on ebay and in a moment of madness I bought something to give us more work.







    The theory behind this is to hopefully attain a 7 second run as this body is light as hell.

    Initially I was apprehensive as we didnt know if it would fit our chassis as it is made off mark williams plans and the body was made to fit ???
    So of to essex to get it we went...

    Once back the chevette shell was deposited in the back of the shop and the bantam was lowered on. .




    No cutting was needed.

    The aluminium front sections were fitted up to check the cool factor and we found the fuel cell was too high so it was cut out to lower it.

    Do excuse the phone pics..

    Rest assured that the chevette is staying. ..I'm far too fond of it and it fulfills my john force style dreams.

    Now your just showing off, the hardest part looks as if it'll be deciding which body to run.

    Enclosed Chevette for the cold Easter Thunderball weather, Bantam for the hot summer weather at the Mopars.

    theoretically i will be able to run both in a weekend as the dash area is to be re done so i can "just" pop off the bantam stuff and drop on the chevette.
