Audio & Electronics
Smedly is for all practical purposes a street legal racing car. He’s 40 inches tall with a full cage and the body is all sheetmetal. As you will see in the photo’s to follow it has a full tilt front and a full tilt rear. I originally designed and built the frame/cage and suspension as a test bed for a Trans Am Sedan Racing Car and then put the Morris Minor body on it …..because I had it in the garage.
History of this Vehicle
I bought the car used when I was 18 and drove it for several years before the motor gave up for the last time and I parked in the garage.
Plans for this Vehicle
Change the A-pillar hinged doors to full gull wing doors. Finish the car this summer and drive it
