Some facts from Wayne about the car

Glad you all like the feature, I was a little sceptical that anyone would be interested to be honest, I’ll try my best to answer any questions you have on the build.

[The car is being built] for a customer, it’s for the shale track at Emmen (in the Netherlands).

Until i make my jig everything is marked out on the chassis legs, I start with the wheel base then work out where the engine should sit and then go from there, this car is running Leyland DAF rear axle and shortened Ford Transit front axle, a big block [engine] and Doug Nash type [gear] box.

See PART 1 for full details about WHR.

Reserved for Mr Chevy.

Cutting into the engine plate - Measure then measure it again, and measure it just one more time.

The Engine plate welded in place.

The Roll Cage is started, while Mr Chevy hangs in place.

Lining up the Chevy to the engine plate.

Outside Roll Cage is bent into shape.

Front Axle sitting in place.

Front axle narrowed and four link brackets welded on, plus four link arms fabricated.

Is it starting to look like a Stock Car yet?

The Roll Cage is taking shape.
