This vehicle is a well-known West Coast hot rod originally built in
the 1960s, and has been featured on the cover and in a full
write-up in Hot Rod Magazine's Street Rod Quarterly in the summer
of 1971. A one-off custom chassis had been built, and the original
all-steel 1929 body was stretched 2" for increased comfort. Only
the best-quality components have been utilized during the entire
restoration process. The interior features German square-weave
pleated leather upholstery and was custom-fabricated and tailored.
This custom roadster is powered by a 540ci V8 engine mated to a
6-speed automatic transmission. The all-aluminum polished engine
assembly and blower cost over $40,000 alone. Total documented
restoration cost exceeded $340,000.
