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...
Did valco do those, or were they their own thing?
