Here is a very well built, traditional style hot rod built recently to emulate the typical chopped hot rods of the 50s-early 60s. Starting with a very clean, western 5W body this car has been chopped about two inches and skillfully mounted on a repro 1932 chassis expressly pinched for this application.
Traditional front and rear buggy spring with the rear being a later 40 style spring.
Engine is a nice running 350 with a little cam sound along with three of the new repro Stromberg 97s and Accel electronic ignition.
Transmission is a Hurst shifted Saginaw 4-speed leading to the 8″ Ford rear with 3.00 gears.
Brakes are real Buick drums with aluminum backing plates in the front and factory 8″ units in the rear from a Granada or similar unit.
A new 60s Chevrolet master cylinder on hanging pedals activates both the brakes and the hydraulic clutch, all of which is very nicely done.
Interior is simply gorgeous and wiring is well done. Windows all work very well as do lights although there is no horn, wiper or radio.
Speaking of noise, the exhaust is one of the best I have seen and will not offend the neighbors.
Fuel tank and battery are both in the nicely finished trunk.
Steering is Vega repro cross with panhard rod and works very well as does the E-brake.
Radiator appears to be a Walker or similar and works very well even in hot weather.
Tires are new Excelsior($$) on new 16″ steel wheels and that package alone retails for over $2k.
Starting price is the absolute bottom line, low ballers please move on. Title is a clean NYS transferable registration in my name and there will be absolutely no test pilots. Speaking of that this car can be easily driven by tall folks as the nicely made seat is as far back as it can go, shorter folks may need a pillow or move the seat. We are not looking to sell this car out of the continental US, that has become a real issue. Thanks!
