Just up for sale is this rare hard to find Classic Street Rod !!!
The car started as a solid, all rust free, all Henry steel body & frame. Brand New cream and burgundy interior and matching trunk. "Frenched in" license plate (relocated from deck lid) and taillights. Nerf bars and new 15" Cragers for that 60's look Front suspension is TCI Mustang 2 w/tubular upper control arms.
The Rear is 12 bolt Chevy with leaf springs. Disc brakes on all 4 corners that stop on a dime. Chrome power steering pump. Rebuilt like new 727 automatic trans. The "crown jewel" is the engine: Early DeSoto 291 "baby" HEMI! Great block boiled, honed, decked, bored 30 over. New crank, rods, pistons, mild cam, etc., etc. heads freshened of course. Complete new build with only about 1,500 miles. (3) 2 bbl. carbs (runs really on the center one for economy, front and rear are "dumpers". Elec. fuel pump.
Car cruises at 75-80 without effort due to the gearing and Desoto Hemi. Runs very cool also. Over the winter I chromed the valve covers ($300) and installed a dual plane vintage intake ($650)!
Trophy winner but haven't been to too many shows. Has an original 35 Ford banjo steering wheel. SW gauges (all work) Lights and LED taillights & blinkers (all working).
