Q & A

What's in the Box

Looking for a little more interior room and a lower profile in your T roadster? Then try our Deluxe '27 T! The all-new Deluxe '27 frame features the same triangulated four-bar rear suspension as the Deluxe T, but with a longer wheelbase and extended rear frame section to accommodate Speedway's high-quality fiberglass '27 T roadster body. The body-and-frame combo can be used to build a hot rod with the same open engine bay and fenderless look of a T-bucket, but offers a lower seating position and a lot more legroom. Try it on for size!

Shown with optional rearend and engine mounts installed. This part number does not include a rear axle housing or engine/transmission mounts (as pictured). If you wish to add these items to your chassis, simply purchase these items along with your frame kit.   

Doors are shipped hinged and latched, but they do require fitting and hanging onto the body by the owner.

All of our T kits are also available with chrome suspension.  This option includes chrome plated: front and rear hairpins, rear coilovers, front axle, front leaf spring, front shocks, steering arms, tie rod, drag link, and related hardware.

No it does not have an opening trunk lid. The area under the rear turtle deck is typically taken up but the fuel tank and battery.

Customers have used the 700R in the T buckets. The mount cushion location on the transmission is 2 1/8” further back on the 700R and a plate is usually fabricated to bolt to the 350 cross member to extend rearward the 2+inches and holes drilled for the 700R mount cushion.

This kit comes with an installed flat floor, but is it just a sheet of plywood or is it your fiberglass floor part # 97327300? Pictures of the floor you offer installed in the body would be fabulous!

Parts from the newer Mustang could be used on the T but the motor and trans mounts would be up to the builder.

Normally once the weight is on the car the drag link from the pitman arm to the passenger side steering arm is fairly level with the tie rod subject to drive train weight. The original Vega pitman arms did have a 2” drop but unfortunately we no longer have them in inventory. The 1” O.D. of the splines is smaller than the other GM arms we offer but you may want to check with Flaming River for options as they are one of the sources for the Vega boxes.

Wheelbase for our ’27 T is 116” and slightly longer than the earlier years which have 102” wheelbase. Depending on engine, transmission, and options the T buckets weigh in as light as 1600 pounds and upwards towards the 1900 pound range. Average weight with small block Chevy and automatic transmission is 1700 to 1800 pounds. We offer some fiberglass fenders but none in the true motorcycle style. Licensing varies from state to state and Speedway kits are licensable in all states and countries as long as they are built to the specific guidelines where the builder or customer lives. First step is to contact your local DMV for a builder, construction, or kit car licensing guide. Requirements vary and with information obtainable from your DMV you can build the car to the necessary guidelines for ease of licensing.
