1930 Ford Model A pickup, 350 V8 with automatic 350 transmission and Chevy 10 bolt rearend. Ford Mustang II frontend, Hooker Headers, Edelbrock intake and carburetor, Custom Oak dashboard with glovebox, Auto Meter gauges, Grey leather bench seat, Power windows, Sony stereo with 10 CD changer under the seat. Oak wood in the bed of the truck with a custom bed cover and Cadillac taillights.
The truck was rebuilt in 2004 and my uncle purchased the truck in 2006 and began making several upgrades, including the 1932 chrome bumpers and leather bench seat. When he purchased the truck the hood was open so he added the hood panels to hide the engine giving the truck a more finished classic look. He also added the custom oak dash and auto meter gauges in 2007. As you can see the odometer reading on the gauge is less than 1700 miles, of which I put 700 miles driving it during Cruising the Coast in October 2018. The truck never ran hot nor did it give me any trouble even driving in two parades that week. The truck has always been garage kept and adult driven, it has been well maintained and never raced. This vehicle is a fine example of superior workmanship and a very well built street rod.
Not interested in any trades.

Once again, the Hagerty crew has created a drivable automobile in just 100 hours and sourced completely from the piles of used parts at the Hershey Swap Meet.
The idea of Hagerty’s Swap to Street Challenge sprouted from a simple concept often heard at the Hershey Swap Meet, that you could build an entire car from the used parts.
