The #173 Roadster is Shane Hill`s car. It`s previous owner escapes me. Shane hasn`t run the car for a while. He worked for Jay Steel at Taylors Engine for a while, as well as driving a Brown truck. His family man duties may preclude the car coming out for a while longer.....

Did they say why?

The guy who wrote the SR rules said that "widening of the rear tread to allow the tires to protrude beyound the fenders" wasn't ever meant to mean that the tires can be completely outside the fenders.  Protruding from implies that at least some of the tire is being covered by the fenders to begin with.

Dyno-The fenders must be stock. I think there is a reference to stock width as well.

"I sent an e-mail to Russ"

So did I about 3 weeks ago---no reply yet!

How long did you have to wait for a reply   huh

I have a 34 ford Pu cab and bed---that is the last year that Ford built roadster pickups.

My questions are:
 where can one find the "allowed" dimensions
 can pickup roadsters be run in the other  roadster classes,
 if so,  how is the bed treated when the others allow for the seat placement be moved out of the original driver compartment.

The Bob & Judy Sights/Nate Sable street roadster is in Penn Valley Ca. (North east of Sac.) and being worked on slowly. Owner Lee Wilbourne has replaced the rusty frame rails, upgraded the roll cage and is bringing it up to 2014 rules and standards. It may be on the salt in 2014 with Ray Fioresi's Hal (V4/VOT) in it.

 I am new to asking questions about Roadsters:
just acquired a 34 Ford Pu cab and bed---1934 is the last year of Fords roadster pickups the top of this cab is a mess considering making a roadster pu out of it.
 I didn't want to start a new thread about Roadster PU because I believe in trying to add as much info in one thread to make research easier.

1. Does Russ reply to emails? How long should I expect?
2 What is the relationship of Roadster Pus to roadsters, ie is the bed considered part of the body?

Sparky, might be worth talking to the North of the 49 Crew since they ran a RPU for a few years.

I don't see your point Sparky. Stock fenders in stock location. I believe they can be "bobbed" to the bottom of the body. Yours are mounted on the bed. Rule says body so they must only go as low as the body. My guess would be where the running board was if you are removing them. Most have found out the lower the fender is the better aero so some have quit "bobbing".

If you have the idea of make the rear tread width so wide that you could lower the rear of the vehicle and the rear tires were outside of the stock fenders that may not break a "rule" but would never pass muster in any state that required fenders. These are considered to be "street legal" cars: lights, horn, etc.

This comes for a guy who has had more rules added to the roadster classes to eliminate a vehecle than anyone. (not by me but against)...Mark my words and be very carefull how you "use" the roadster rules. They all come out of the woodwork..."just sayin"

Street roadsters just stick up in the air and the only way to get the rear down is 22.5" tires  under the stock fenders and if you've ever seen that you know why guys don't do it.....Good Luck

The thread was started by asking about roadster pickups in Street Roadster.

Sparky seems to be asking about Gas/Fuel Roadster.

Either way, the Rule Book is clear about using (in bold face) Production Automobile bodies.  Does a '34 roadster pickup use the same Automobile body as earlier (Ford) roadster pickups did -- such as a Model A?  Or does it use the Commercial (Truck) cab and grille?

Sparky, which roadster class do you want to run?
If You want to run in STR than the driver must sit in the original
drivers compartment.If You wish to build Your
34 for FR/GR , I do not know why You could not sit back in the car as the rules
allow, bed or not. I will question the master for You when I talk with later today.
Hoping You are have a productive lakester day.

As far as I can tell, Ford built 347 open cab trucks in 1934.  That cab is IMO worth way to much to make into a Bonneville racer.
