The Explorer and Centurian etc design was amazing. Talk about common sense cost cutting, the chassis was a simple Z shaped sheet metal. Cheap to make and easy to service. The tubes/trannys were exposed on the back releasing all the heat. They were covered with steel mesh (not shown in this pic)Yeah, Nat Daniel did s lot of odd stuff; much of which--many have postulated--was inspired by trying to keep the price down. But IME, some of these things really worked out well. Hopefully, that'll be the case here too...
No Valco was a different company. Leonc can tell you all about those, he has loads of them....even builds his own clones.Did valco do those, or were they their own thing?
