Say these 2 today, the first is a very clean car with a Globe Motor and Chassis. The second is a "Mike Steube Frogwinder" with what seem to be associated wheels and some clean Faas gears. Is the chassis legit?

Isaac, I think the chassis centersection is a legitimate Mike Steube item. It's missing both pans & associated bits. The two holes in the droparm were made by somebody other than Steube, so it's been played with. You'll need 7/8" tires to use with those 45 & 46 tooth Faas spurs.

The holes were part of what made me a little cautious. Some of the soldering and the guide tongue looked weird but I did assume it was just amateur repairs. Thanks for the good information. When is the timeline? I would say 69 but that just doesn't seem quite right.

I would not think the Steube center is worth anything imho. The drop arm has been mutilated with those holes and the pan assembly which is 1/2 the chassis is missing.
