Re: GT40 Chassis starting point

A) A GT40! There really isn't anything close to start with that doesn't cost more that a GT40 kit! Sbarro did convert some Panteras to "GT40s" but again, a lot of work and a high starting cost.

It has been a popular "go to" IFS system for street rods for 40 years. Not optimum but very workable. There are many special replacement control arms and spindles to resolve bump steer, etc.

Re: Identify This Replica If Possible

Front suspension is Pinto/Mustang II/Street Rod system. It has a double pivot lower arm in lieu of the standard compression strut type lower, the double pivot is commonly a street rod type upgrade.
