I spent a LOT of time building this salt flat car using a fuel drop tank from a WWII F-4U Corsair fighter airplane, xles from a 1948 Ford car, he yoke from a 1930's airplane as a steering wheel, heels and tires from a 1940's Plymouth, ieces of a WWII leather bomber jacket for the cockpit edging and head rest and many other WWII era aircraft pieces. LET ME MAKE THIS CLEAR..... This car CAN NEVER be made to drive. I built it solely for the purpose of display and there is NO engine, ransmission, r gears in the rear axle. The car is no where near as heavy as it looks. It weighs around 350lbs and it has lift eyes from WWII aircraft welded to the axles on all four corners in order to suspend the car from the ceiling of a workshop or man cave. The cockpit is too small for anyone over 5ft tall to get in. There is NO internal framework. I built the car to be suspended upside down from a ceiling or on its side on a wall. The cockpit has two small Edison bulbs in it to give it a warm glow at night. There are also three L.E.D. light pucks on the bottom side of the car that will light up the area around the car once it is suspended. I built this car as a work of art and it can in no way be driven. There is NO title, s it is a work of art. Willing to build a crate and ship worldwide. Crating and shipping costs are the buyers responsibility. I have no way of giving you a quote on shipping. I can drop it off at any shipping terminal in HOUSTON, EXAS.
