Vintage Hot Rod
This super cool little Model A pickup is a true vintage Hot Rod. Originally rodded in 1958 (with vintage photos to document it) this is an all-original, all STEEL truck, no modern-day replica or fiberglass parts in sight! An east coast rod, it exhibits all of the traditional style of rods from that area. Rather than the west coast style "hi boys", this baby is channeled, dropped deep over a "Z'ed" frame, and sits "in the weeds". Thankfully, it isn't chopped so a regular sized guy can still sit up straight in it and drive! The grille shell is an original '32 Ford one. The truck was originally running a hot flathead Ford V-8 in '58, but was later fitted with an early DeSoto Hemi mill bolted to the stock Ford trans and rear using a proper period adapter kit. This is all vintage speed stuff here, no fuel injection, coil over shocks, rack and pinion steering or any other such nonsense. This is a time machine back to the way they used to build them in the 50's.
Restored in 2002, this little truck is like new in all respects. Better yet, it DRIVES like you wouldn't beleive. It is an incredible driving hot rod, so good in fact that the day before I am writing this my buddy drove it 2 hours non-stop, in rush hour traffic, at highway speeds from Chicago to Milwaukee. Once it got here, we drove it to lunch, to the auto parts store, then I drove it home and decided to take it to our local cruise night - which is about 25 miles each way! Then this morning, I drove it again on the freeway to work. All told, about 200 miles in a day without one complaint from the truck. It runs flawlessly, with great oil pressure and it never goes over 160 degrees water temp. It shifts perfectly, stops straight and true, and tracks like a dream at 75 MPH. Everything works just like a new car. If you could get over being folded up like a lawn chair you could drive this truck daily! Another neat feature is the handy storage areas under the seat bottoms. More storage room than a new Ford GT- and don't forget you still have the carpeted and covered bed!
This truck is featured in the hardcover book "The Ultimate Guide to Hot Rods and Street Rods" with Boyd Coddington kneeling on the front tire.
With real vintage rods (like this one) selling for up to half a milllion bucks, this little Hemi motivated Model A truck is a steal at about 10% of that number. Drive it, show it, park it in your driveway and show your neighbors just what cool is all about. How can you go wrong?
