Did Bobby run long or short truck arms on his Hueytown cars?
(I should know this, but have spent most of my modeling career building Mopars:)

Thanks,
John

I've always understood the early cars were short trailing arm.

Like Dave said cars that Bobby built were short a cars with frt steer. Unlike the usual long arm rear steer chassis most were using.

The Hueytown cars were short arm, 3 link cars (the third link that located the housing was a short upper arm that was slightly offset to one side of centerline but for the life of me I can't remember which side it was offset to.
