Another sweet Timm Cooper build?

Not mine. Not sure if this was built by Timm but it certainly looks like one of his creations. Man this is pretty. If only it was coil sprung and 20k less!

It wasn't even a frame-off restore, nor a galvy chassis.

I don't think Timm built it, but was mainly amazed that they would go to that effort and not do a frame-off restore (and galvanize the chassis) as well as the price.

Don't get me wrong, I not only like the concept, I think what they did looks great.

Those are informative links. Doesnt sound like he did build it. I know that Timm prefers leaf springs which is one of the reasons I thought he might be behind this one but I certainly agree for all the time and trouble you would think they would start with a galv chassis. At the same time having been in CA for awhile most people out here dont worry about the rust.
