Basically starting with a Craftsman LT1000 lawn tractor chassis and not much else.  I plan on mounting the axle at the furthest front of the frame, but on top of the frame to lower the ride height.  I will be extending the rear of the frame with some box tubing and adding a 3/4 dead axle with a chain drive setup and band brake.  I am thinking powerplant will be a Predator 6.5 hp from Harbor Freight.  I may install a torque converter if funds allow.  Overall build is going to either resemble a rat rod or a 1950's Grand Prix Car.
