The car appears channeled, whichtechnically the body is channeled over the chassis, but thefloor area is dropped so there is a quite a bit of interior room, especially considering the radial chop and the full cage. I am 6' tall and fit in the car with plenty of room.
This is a very..i repeat...very.. radial hot rod. Rowdy is an extreme understatement. Loud...I made some collector mufflers for it but its still very loud. This is a no-frills, lightweight race car on the street. If your looking for a car to drive across the country...look elsewhere. If you want a hardcore hot rod that can be raced, and run down the street, this fits the bill..

Extremely well done and engineered to the highest level. 100% TIG welded chassis. Chassis was fabricated on a full Bluco modular fixture table system, as square of a chassis as you will ever find. Builder (myself) has 20 years of hot rod building background, a bachelors in Automotive engineering and a Bachelors in Welding Engineering (both from Ferris State University). Very well engineered and built car.Car literally has about 50 miles on it since built. Feel free to browse my Instagram page for more photos, and videos of the truck (joshrod1932).
