I had been thinking about a rotisserie for the '49 frame. I got serious about it when I found 1000lb engine stands on sale at NAPA for $35.00 ea. I couldn't build the stands for that kind of money so I bought two and made a couple of mods to make them into chassis stands.
I didn't get any pics before I started cutting up the stands but you can see what I ended up with. I made new, taller necks to support the rotation part of the stands. This also got the frame high enough to work on AND still rotate (I left the running board brackets on it) over the lower tie bar.
I also replaced the lower tube with a longer one to increase the track width of the wheels.
All welded up and painted safety orange. I put solid 10" casters on one end and swivels at the other. It drives fine.
