    Help identifying suspension uprights / brakes... 34 corner / redline chassis?

    Hey guys,

    Wondered if there's anyone out there who knows much about 34 corner (redline) chassis...

    Or - perhaps even from this pic can identify the uprights?


    I can just about make out a ford logo - so I'm suspecting cortina / escort - but it looks to me to be modified with a welded on mount for steering arm...

    Likewise for the rack - I suspect escort - just a hunch...



    I'd welcome any suggestions as to positively identifying this / confirming my hunch?

    And this one is perhaps best for anyone who particularly knows about redline chassis - IT LOOKS to me like the chassis included the following mount for underslung brake setup from the factory - bracket present for underlslung pedal pivot - and indeed the master cal / booster... I'd love to know what parts where intended to bolt on here?



    Actually - any info about the redline / 34 corner chassis would be awesome!?

    Cheers!

    Those uprights are Cortina ones modified for rear steer rack. The chassis bracketry looks to be set up for the industry standard 7" booster Gm style master cylinder available from many sellers on here and other rod shops.

    p.s....it's Rodline although that became a dirty word near the end of it's trading history...

    Cheers...

    Indeed GM booster looks like the right thing - it was actually the pedal setup I'm most curious about - having the pivot in place made me wonder if there was something that bolted in, worth asking before I spend hours fabbing something.

    And yeah - I know a little of the rodline saga - all a bit of a shame after such a good rep from Chris...

    Again I think you will find that it was set up for the generic brake pedals that are also available with different ratios for boosted or non boosted applications.
    Does it look to be 1/2" or 5/8" holes?

    That kind of thing....
