Starting in 2012 with a 1936 Ford pickup cab and box only, the
project began. Soon after a 1951 Ford Flathead V8 engine was
acquired and vintage "go-fast" parts were assembled, including
Offenhauser cylinder heads, Offenhauser intake and Stromberg 97
carburetors. Drive is sent to the rear wheels via a 5-speed manual
transmission, and Lucky 7 fabricated a custom-made Z'd chassis and
subsequently a mild 3-inch chopped top was incorporated with a
functioning rear window. To be unique and avoid traditional chrome
trim, copper was chosen as the accent color, which ties into the
truck's name "Copperhead" - a play on copper and Flathead. In the
spring of 2015, the car was invited to Toronto's Motorama car show,
where it won several awards, including Canadian Top Ten.
Subsequently Eagle Canvas completed the interior with leather and
actual copper sheets on the door panels, as well as custom-made
leather pouches. In June 2015, Copperhead received the Goodguys
Best Bitchin' Ride Award and First Place in the Traditional Hot Rod
Category at the Cobble Beach Concourse D'Elegance. The next year
Vintage Auto Insurance awarded the car First Place in their
championship. **SOLD ON BONDED TITLE** **TITLE IN TRANSIT**
