Vehicle Description

This frame-off, rotisserie-restored dark green custom-built lead sled was professionally built over several years with thousands of hours of handcrafting each detail of the car. It was purposely built for the Detroit Autorama. It was chopped 3-1/2 inches at the A pillars and the B pillars were removed and hard-topped 7-1/2 inches. The rear end of car was torpedo backed with a frenched custom '52 Cadillac bumper and the corners were rounded. Everything has been shaved, and the hood modified with a forward 3-1/2-inch tilt. At the front is a custom '52 Cadillac Dagmier grille, custom-fabricated and frenched late-model Dodge headlights and reversed front turn-signal lights. This professionally painted custom lead sled features an all-steel body with laser-straight panels and custom metal-finished Buick-style quarter-panels with shaved stock Merc door drops. The underside of the hood - in fact, the whole underside of the car - is as smooth and shiny as the exterior. No detail was left undone. This car is powered by a dual overhead cam 32-valve hemispherical Q45 engine from Indianapolis 500 and the Infinity Pro-series race team. It is a computerized tune port-injected V8 engine with 700R4 automatic overdrive transmission and custom polished stainless exhaust with Swagelok quick-connects. The car sits on Air Ride Technologies bags at all four corners with a Fatman tubular front suspension and Air Ride Technologies 4-bar rear suspension. A set of 4-piston SSBC Elite engraved disc brakes on all four wheels provide stopping power to the billet aluminum wheels with new tires. The professionally done black interior features custom-upholstered leather seats, custom console, one-off custom-built Dakota Digital dash, power windows, power seats, Vintage Air heat and air conditioning and a Shock Wave dual-amp boombox stereo.
