This was the chassis under Jimmy Bradshaw's dart. I am currently looking for a 67-69 dart body if anyone has one. Hope to have it done by Memorial Day next year. I can't get the pictures to load sorry bout that. Beeen out of the seat for a while. Looking forward to making hits again!

I haven't been able to get to my car to measure the struts for you

I got it taken care of thanks. I contacted santuff and gave them the measurements. They are 10 weeks out, that was 2 weeks ago.

Just be careful with anything from them. crooksduster, I see you're in Florida. If you decide to buy from U.S. Body, I suggest driving up there to inspect the parts before purchasing.

Here's a picture of the outside of U.S. Body Source. I went up there to pick up a hood. I must have past that place 10 times before taking a chance and pulling in. Their tiny business sign was covered in overgrown shrubbery and vines. Plus, I wasn't expecting the place to look like this!

I plan on using a steel body. Any fiberglass pieces I get will be from AAR fiberglass which is now Stinger fiberglass. They are local to me. I've used AAR for years and Alan's stuff was always top notch!

U S Body Source is heavy junk.

I sold some of their parts to customers back in the early 90s, junk for sure, but they had parts that no one else had. You would finally get the parts (6 months for a 70 RR hood)then spend hours reworking them.$$$


Have a great day

Was able to make the chassis a roller this weekend. New Santuff struts. (That hurt). Dart goes to the body shop Friday soon as the body work is done we can mount the body on the chassis

The rear tires are not on just sitting beside car. 16x16 double beadlocks. Won't need them but I got them cheap.
