I was given this today as a birthday gift from a bud. He found it at a garage sale and I can find info online about Carter brothers, but cant find squat about this little critter.
it has a sticker on rear axle that says carter bros and model #1802-3215
Anybody know when it was made?
I have the bigger drill doctor, it even took some time to master, I went for a long time hit and miss with it, now i think I have it down, I think.
Its been plenty durable for the 5+ years I've owned it.
powder is a tad cheaper than paint and far more durable.
have you priced quality paint lately and everything that is needed?
I would powder that frame for 125. in a single stage color, candies or flakes cost a smidge more.
depends if you gear it downa smidge, it does indeed want to wheelie. and the front axle I made by cutting the shape out of 3/8" plate with a plasma then drilled it on my mil and then capped top and bottom with 1/2" x 1"8 flat bar to mimic an I beam axle.
I have a 60's gasser build in mind with jr dragster slicks on the back and skinnys up front, chrome straight axle, wicked paint job, letter it up and toss a predator motor and tool it around the shows. I also have a 50's styled fuel altered I built that would look good displayed with it.
I have a Kenny Bernstein Budweiser King
and I just got a Pepsi Prudhomme body
This is a photo found on google
this is the only photo I have of the pepsi one I bought. Ive known the seller a long time and never knew he had this in storage
