Default 1918 Dodge Bros Roadster

Iíve started working on my RSC $4K buildoff car. Iím starting with a GM 305 from an 87 GMC, mated to a 700r4, and a ford 8Ē with 3.0 gears so it should get great fuel mileage. Total price for the drive train, $775.00. The body is a 1918 dodge brothers touring car that someone had poorly grafted roadster quarters onto. First step was to cut off the quarters so I could replace the lower 3Ē or so of the body as it was really rotten.

This will be a fun build to follow. The Dodge body has a lot of character.

4 hrs later and I have one lower rocker finished. I decided to stretch the body out 12 inches to accommodate my stupidly long legs. This body is just a little too short and seeing as I donít have doors or the frame built yet, now is the time to do it. What I will do, is once I have the other side reskinned, I will cut the center of the door sill and stretch it there.
