About 3 months ago I had planned to build this vehicle. I got as far as building a tire, rim and hubcap and also an engine. Then my world got a bit busy and I didn't draw for a while. Now that I'm back I seem to have forgotten a whole lot. My intent was to get the car drawn and put a nice frame, suspension and interior in it. At this point I'm having trouble getting the car's exterior worked out to anything I feel is acceptable, just can't get my head and my drawing skill around the compound curves. I intend to keep going BUT IF ANYONE ELSE WANTS A PROJECT, GO FOR IT. I found the 4 view drawing on the Internet and set the wheelbase to 115 inches that my searching tells me is the most reliable. The overall length is listed as 197 13/16 inches but this seems to contradict with the wheelbase. You can get one but if you "scale" it for the length then is messes up the wheelbase. I have tried to bring the different views into position with each other so that things line up. The height is listed as 65.75 inches but that came from the same source as the overall length so I am a little suspect of that info also. I'll keep working on my drawing but will search the WAREHOUSE every so often to see if someone elses wants to shape the exterior. Good luck and THANKS if you do. #1951_Chevrolet_Fleetline
