Dennis Dean of Hanover Penn, sent in thise pics of his "51 that he is building to compete in the Nostalgia drags in B gas. The body is all steel including the tilt front end. It will be powered by a small Chevy 434 and a PG and trans brake hooked to a Chrysler 8-3/4 rear. Strange disc are used on all four wheels. The chassis, all of the aluminum work and the fender well headers were done by Warren Frank at  Alston Race Cars in New Oxford, PA. Engine was built by Awesome Engines in Dover, Delaware. The engine sits back were the original dash was located. It has a straight front axle.
Justin Williams from Logansport, Indiana sent a few pics of his first car, he is only fourteen years old. He and his dad Chuck will be rebuilding a SB Chevy to power his J. They are busy doing the body work preparing to paint it Orange with some Green chrome flaked flames. Good to see some younger guys getting bitten by the Henry J bug, good luck with your car Justin.

Here are some pics I took of John Nicklas' Henry J. This is a car I was going to build myself but didn' t want to cut it because it had such a unbeliveable straight body. So much for that now that John's got it. Motor is a 383 Chevy with a BDS 6:71 supercharger with 3" drive, and topped with dual Holley 600's.  John's a retiered machinest and built lots of unique parts for this car. First was to adapt a set of power disc to the original Henry spindles. John built spacers and brackets to hold the calipers and did a great job. Trans is a 400TH hooked to a completely rebuilt Ford 9" bolted to the original Henry springs. John cut the rear wells and made room for the MT 31X50X15's, up front he used their 4" front runners. Check out the pics I think he's on his way to a really nice Henry.
These next photo's were sent in by Chuck Stewart from Indianapolis Indiana. So far Chuck has boxed the frame and narrowed it in the rear to accept the '51 Chevy leaf springs to mount the 10bolt rear. He also used the truck straight axle up front. He has replaced the fire wall, trans tunnel and some fo the floor pans with 16ga metal. The motor is a Chevrolet 454 with TH400 trans. Motor is running 2" fenderwell headers and one piece tilt front end. Wheels will be 15X14 on the rear with 29X18.5 and 15X3 front runners. Chuck has informed me that his first pass with be down the newly opened US30 drag strip.....Cool.........
