. . . at least when it doesn't match a PASSENGER cab, not a Commercial.

"Scotties muffler did it. Coupe into a roadster it was a 34 and hauled A$$."

Scotty's Muffler.  Same contour and shape as a roadster with the doors a little longer.  Probably closer to an actual roadster than the fiberglass "replicas" are today -- at least the 28-29's.

He also filled in the wheelwells with this one a couple of years ago.

Modified Roadsters  or Fuel-Gas Roadster

As I read and re-read the rules if I chopped the a pillar and the back of the cab down to the top of the doors and maintain the required 28.25 "
this should "exactly duplicate updated 10-20-2013"  the roadster pu body.

 I should be allowed the 152" for a 34 Ford  or the original overall length.  Am I missing something?

There only one gas/fuel roadster I know that is still running and started life as a coupe. The practice is allowed but most today do not use steel bodies which as the say are too valuable. To me using a pickup in the Street Roadster class not worth it BUT using a 29-31  coupe with the top wacked off is promising so I could keep my 6'1" frame out of the air as much as possible by sitting back. The pickup does have enough room to sit in stock seems like a waste of a good start on a street rod or rat.

If I were to do that I would document every cut and measurment to prove I did it at the exact spot the top met the rear deck so as not to be ch--ting which I would never do.  rolleyes Good Luck

Thank you 4 Barrel Mike!

From post #107, in several places; ..."production roadster body or an exact replica of a roadster body..." 

The word production can be researched in Wiki, Webster's and many other spots. Boils down to the SCTA interpretation, the old wrestle with a pig in the mud. One of the two enjoy it.

Don't you have a lakester to work on Sparky?

Yes Dan, but the Lakester is almost finished and I have a bunch of left over "Stuff" that could be put to higher and better use--- like a "fuel-gas ROADSTER" or a mod roadster!   cheers

Maybe you should start with a passenger roadster rather than a commercial vehicle.  Just a thought before you get too far.

Stan has a good idea. Plus--I`ve a soft spot for 34 Pickups....I almost finished one 20 plus years ago, but had to sell it when I moved North. How about engineering a trade of sorts, Sparky?....

SB  a roadster PU is far from just a "commercial vehicle."  It is a 3 pass vehicle with a short bed.  In most states one must be over 8600# or 10,000# to be considered a "Commercial Vehicle"  But I understand what the Mayor is trying to tell me.  There are more that just written rules.  The rules have to be "explained".

 I am just trying to get them explained to me by the Roadster Committee Contact.  So far no response.
