Item Description

You're building a hot rod. The first step is the chassis. If that's not right, the car won't handle well. If it's really not right, the car might destroy itself.

Next is the body. This is what everyone sees first, and it's what makes a hot rod a hot rod.

Veteran builder and writer Dennis Parks walks you through the whole process, whether you're modifying a '32 Ford or building a chassis from scratch, finding and using existing body panels or choosing New Old Stock panels from the aftermarket.

The Hot Rod Body and Chassis Builder's Guide offers foolproof advice for building the hot rod of your dreams. Other books by Dennis Parks:
