The strut attachments are rotted, so the strut suspension must go. I
think the body will fit on the sand rail chassis, but I'll probably
have to raise it some to clear the front suspension. The rest of the
body looks ok.
Got all kinds of junk when we cleaned out. How about a 1956 1.1l?
Shrouds, single and dual port heads, trans axle, glas bug fenders,
etc. It was like a greasy Christmas!

Yep, if you pull the body you definitely loose the upper attachment
for the McPherson struts, since they're part of the body. I wonder
would be possible to fit some kind of shorter strut and fabricate a
upper frame mounting point to be able to use this in a FGB? I'm
enough imagination and skill it could be done. Be a nice set-up

If you pull it off the pan, you do lose the upper support for the
MacPhereson struts though, right? So you'd effectively lose any

attached. I shrunk them so they wouldn't be too bad for dial-up
