How to Build Altered Wheelbase Cars by Steve Magnante will show you how to make the outrageous modifications to your car that were infamous during the altered wheelbase era of the 1960s.
Gasser-class and other altered wheelbase machines of the 1960s radically changed our understanding of what is referred to as a hot rod.
How to Build Altered Wheelbase Cars begins by reviewing the history of the glory days when wheelbase cars were in their heyday. Then it gets into the actual how-to procedures and photos to help you make the wild and interesting mods yourself. Magnante has authored a few other great "Motor Head" books, including Steve Magnante's 1001 Muscle Car Facts.
At one time deemed "race only," modifications now can be used for regular road use, taking into account optimal appearance, performance and safety.
The book is packed with plenty of historical photos you can use for reference, as well as clear step-by-step photos that will provide valuable information as you build your own altered-wheelbase car, either for the street or the strip.
This how-to performance book includes modern upgrades to vintage techniques and equipment. It covers GM, Ford and Mopar projects.
