Pictures of '34 Ford Gas Roadster under construction for Speed Week 2009. My first effort at building a car. First pictures show detail of bottom of frame for exhaust crossover. Exhaust runs within the height of lower frame rail (2" x 6"), between step pan and floor, and will exit out back of car. Other pictures show frame and body as currently fitted.
It has been fun!

Being I see an "X" pipe for the exhaust I'll go out on a limb and say it's normally aspirated. Using some form of Nascar engine in the B,C,D, class on gas. Just a guess though. Let us know.... cool

Really nice build by the way......

By the way, thank you guys for the encouraging response to the build. After thinking about this car and building it as long as I have, at times I've questioned my sanity!

You may want to insulate the step pan and flooring over the exhaust it's going to get pretty hot sandwiched in that area. Good luck

Jimmy; yea thanks. I anticipate wrapping the cross over in a heat proof material to help insulate floor.
If the floor starts getting too hot, I'll drive a little faster so I can get out sooner!

Wow, that looks nice.

Been wondering if a 33/34 has a lower cd and all than a typical 32.

jww,,

Lizard Skin  ceramic coating helps reduce heat a buch and it slows any fire too !!   Use it on the floor and inside of the firewall,,, Just my 2 cents..

Ceramic coating the pipes will help keep the heat where it belongs, in the pipe. It is supposed to help performance also.
