OK.....There were four, five, six different major builders of super frames?

There were three, four, five Different body configurations?

What are the differences between a Nance frame and Edmunds or a Parsons....ect.....?

What were the differences in there roofs, bodies, tails, noses..?

When did the four bar invasion take place. and when did the frames change from single rail frames to the double side tube style.?

Please show pictures and descriptions..Super Modified 101

Many of us live, eat, breathe, and sleep old supermodifieds. To tell you the truth, the more I know, the less I feel qualified to answer these questions.

86" wheelbase Edmunds.

 

Truth is although Edmunds didn't invent the super, he is widely credited with the design.

What year did edmunds build his first supermodified?

I have been told that befor the full tube frame that stock frame rails were used and this was the origin of the 100" wheelbase and 50" motorplate location. Did the rules state anything about frame width? or type of tubing used?............Thanks

I doubt if any of the supers that ran in the NCRA area were exactly alike Every owner wanted their touch on their car.

There were 2 basic types the single rail like the Edmonds and the space frame like the USAC champ cars. Some of the single rail cars were square tubing, some round some had the Edmonds body,some had the t body. Some owners made their own bodies. There were seveal space frame types. The top rail above the headers the top rail below the headers and a couple different variations of these. Most of the supers had cross torsien bars on the rear, some had parrell bars but not many. The Edmonds mostly were a spring front. There were crossand paralel bars used on the front. sSome cars had coil overs front or front and back. Some cars were changed from springs to bars and bars to spring. Some of the coilover cars were changed to spring front, bar rears or both front and rear bars.

That is the beauty of the supers they were all differnt and all kinds have won.

Please excuse my spelling, the spell check is not working
