OK. Here is what I have. I was in the process of building a VW Type III Squareback and a 2" x 3" tube chassis. Front suspension Mustang II with a standard VW wheelbase (94-1/2") I would really like to build a fiberglass Super 7 body to mate to this chassis. I realize that I will have to modify the body dimensions some, but I really need the body specs in a line drawing if possible to start with. Can anyone help me? Also, does anyone have the specs, dimensions, for a soft top? Oh, did I mention that my project is a front engine, small block 350 Chevy engine, 700R4 trannie and a narrowed 9" Ford rear end? Oughta scoot along pretty well or do you think it is a crazy idea? Wish I knew how to send pictures of what I have.

Read up a bit on Locosts. Most use fiberglass for only the nose and fenders...sometimes the scuttle. There are a bunch of V8 powered machines on here. Look at what has been done before in the build logs.

Fixed it for you. These concepts are not mutually exclusive.
