This special creation was modeled after a 1923 Ford Model T
nicknamed "The Billet-T". It is the combination of "Lil John"
Butera's all "Billet" suspension and Rick Santos' performance
running gear. It has a polished "Billet" front torsion bar, Jaguar
style 3.55:1 posi rear end with handmade "Billet" axles and rear
independent suspension. John Butera (somewhat of a legend in
Southern California) built suspensions for Boyd Coddington and Don
"The Snake" Prudhomme. The highly modified 327 C.I./375 H.P. V8 was
built by 5-time world champion drag racer Rick Santos who mated
this brute of a motor to a completely polished TH350 automatic
transmission, added an oversized polished radiator, and 4 wheel
disc brakes to the build. Lots of chrome and custom touches grace
this one-of-a-kind creation from one of the industries most
talented builders. Options include:
Performance Built 327 C.I./375 H.P. V8 with 2x4 Holley
