Fresh from the pages of Deluxe Car Kulture, Rod & Custom, and Rod & Kulture magazines, is this first time offered 30 all steel Street Rod.

It is an amazing car that was built by some very talented professional builders, "Smokehouse Rods & Cycles", right here in Fredericksburg. With only 834 test and tune miles it is like a newly built car from the sixties. That era was the inspiration for this awesome show winning coupe.


There is alot going on here so I will break it down for you like this: The body is chopped 2.5 inches,  channeled 6 inches, one of a kind fabricated firewall, metal roof skin, dimpled drilled visor, and motorcycle gas cap. The grille is from a 32 Ford with handmade insert. The custom Candy-apple Green & Pearl White paint with custom scallops and pin stripes are simply eye popping! The stripes are under the clear coat so you can wax it up at the car show and not worry about putting distortion in the stripes. It was painted by Chris Reeh & Jim Strickland.

The results speak for themselves. The unique power plant is a Buick 401 "Nail-head" V-8 with Drag Star long intake, 6 Stromberg carbs, and Sanderson lake headers with baffles. The wiring and final tune up was completed by our own mechanics Clint and Craig. Is sounds intense and runs fantastic! A MSD and  Petronix electronic ignition set up fires the powerful Buick motor. A Buick Turbo 400 automatic transmission feeds the GM 10 bolt posi rear end. The modified Ford frame features a front 4 link suspension and coil springs are out back. Firestone period correct wide white walls are 15 inch with the ole cheater  slicks on the rear. The front brakes are disc with Buick covers and the rear are heavy duty drums. The interior has some very unique touches. The aluminum bomber seats with engine turned seat backs and sides are one of a kind. The upholstery is white pearl vinyl. The metal dash is filled with handsome working gauges. The shifter is a custom unit also.


This built took on a life of its own and the final results screams sixties magazine quality with the today technology. You can just imagine how much time and money went into this truly one of a kind rod. Make it yours today and get ready to make all your street rod buddies jealous.





Ca je kiffe... si un jour j'ai un rod, c'est un dans ce style sixties.... et Ford A 1930 only...  Smile

celui ci il tue tout aussi...

1930 Ford Pick Up

Message  Predicta le Sam 13 Juil - 21:41


 1930 Ford PickUp Rat Rod. When this truck was built they put a lot of time in shoping the body to give it that special look. All that is paired with a model engine and trans so that it can be a dependable driver. In the paragraphs to follow I will give a brief description of the exterior, interior, and drive line of the Ford



We will start off with the exterior of the PickUp. There has been uncountable time spent on customizing this steel body to give it a killer look. The body is done in a Brown Metallic Paint that is accented with custom air brush art on the doors and Gold Paint accents on the bed along with some custom pinstripping. The bed on this truck comes with a cover that the hides the fuel tank and battery. To help set the look apart the radiator shell has been laid back. The door windows are power and all the glass is indeed glass and not plastic. The final exterior touch is the set of Painted Steel Wheels and Wide White Tires.
Next, we will move on to the interior of the ’30. The keep with the Rat Rod look and feel the insides are done old school. It has an extra long Locar Shifter, Old School Gauges, and a Banjo Steering Wheel. All the metal is painted to match the outside with all the door panels and set beats being covered in brown and gold vinyl

Finally, we will take a look at the driveline of the Ford. It is all chevy with a late model 350 V8 that is mated to a 700 R trans and a 10 Bolt Rear End. The exhaust is a set of Zoomies that are coated. The only dressing to the engine is a set of Aluminum Valve Covers and a Vintage Air Breather. This rat is setting on a Stone Bought Chassis what 4 Wheel Power Disc Brakes and a Mustang Ii Front end with Rack and Pinon steering.

Incredible 1930 Henry Ford steel

Message  Predicta le Lun 29 Juil - 7:24

Incredible 1930 Henry Ford steel vintage roadster w. Packard V8 & history

This fun and amazing roadster is a true time-capsule barn find, built over 50 years ago with creativity and ingenuity. It has a very interesting history, the original builder’s family having been country western superstars, and the subsequent owner being featured on American Pickers. To my knowledge, the roadster has been at three shows, bringing home trophies from all three. The most notable of these was an appearance a few years ago in the Suede Palace at the Grand National Roadster Show, where it won the Ruiz pick Best Rod trophy.

When I bought this roadster, I had no idea of the history and the incredible attention it gathers from car buffs. On opening night at the El Cajon Hotrod Show I drove the roadster in - still covered in dust - and was literally mobbed for two hours before winning a trophy and being asked to allow photos of the car with a model for a magazine entry. Guys surround the car and try to figure out what the engine is and what parts came from where. The original pearl white 50+ year patina is a real draw, as are the customizations.

The roadster is a smorgasbord of interesting car parts, from various years (20’s, 30’s, 40’s) of Fords (the grill shell might be a hand extended 1932 Ford), Packards, Studebakers, Plymouths, Imperials, and also many one-off hand made items. One particularly interesting feature is two side-by-side frenched antennas on the driver’s side of the cowl – a trademark of the Alexander Brothers (Little Deuce Coupe) – I’ve been exploring how to reach the surviving brother to see if it was their work. Some guys thought the car was a Gene Winfield design because of the large z in the front frame, but I contacted the Winfield people and they confirmed it wasn’t. I have made contact with the original builder’s family (who owned the car for many years) and spent hours hearing some of the history of the car – lots of fun and interesting facts, but the surviving family members don’t know the origin of the original body modifications (which was once a coupe) and some other parts of the car. Apparently some pieces were touched by well-known early rodders like John Weibe, who raced against Don Garlitz. The car has an early NHRA badge. There are some early pictures, a newspaper article, and potentially more pictures available from the original family.

The Packard V8 starts up and purrs nicely with clear exhaust and has a great exhaust note when driving. There are small baffles in the straight pipes so it isn’t too loud. The Packard manual 3 speed with overdrive is fun and easy to drive and is a highly respected transmission that was a technological masterpiece at the time (and a precursor to the modern transmission.) Apparently at least some of the engine was rebuilt with low miles, but there’s a small oil drip that I believe can be easily corrected with a replaced rope seal (new one included with sale). This could be ignored or replaced I think by just dropping the pan, but there’s also a modern gasket replacement if someone wants to go through it. There are guys like Jack Vines who specialize in overhauling and modernizing these groundbreaking Packard powerplants, and parts and gaskets are available. From what I understand, it is a 352 that had 275 - 315 hp stock with a lot of torque.

1930 Ford Model A

Message  Predicta le Sam 7 Sep - 9:40


1930 Ford slant windshield Model 68C Cabriolet. This is a beautiful, all original Henry Ford steel, well-built traditional style hot rod. I obtained this car from a very famous yet private museum on the East coast that features all historic and significant traditional hot rods. The VIN number traces it's manufacture back to 1929 production. From what I was able to learn, this car was 'hopped up' in the 1950's on the West coast, then later brought to the East coast. It appears to have been 'freshened up" sometime in the 1980's. The combination of front transverse suspension with the 4-bars, and the 4-bar rear suspension with adjustable coil-overs gives this car a very comfortable and smooth and solid and soft ride. It’s an extremely sanitary build, very clean car, even the underside is as clean and sanitary as the top side as evidenced in the photos. Everything works and runs and drives great. It starts right up and doesn’t smoke at all. The flathead is believed to be a '49 and MAY have a Merc crank, but I can't be sure. Anyway, it purrs like a kitten and each bank of cylinders warms up to 180 degree running temperature and stays there as it should. It has 12-volt electrics. The cowl lamps were converted to directional signals. A very cool touch! Odometer shows approximately 2500 miles.  I can only assume that those miles are since the ‘refreshening’ in the 1980’s. It has all of the appearances of a car that has sat in a climate controlled space getting very little use. The prominent features of the car are as following;

  • All Henry Ford steel body, again, it’s a slant windshield body, quite rare.
  • A chopped windshield, approximately 2 inches.
  • Awesome miles-deep black paint. There’s no orange peel, this was obviously professionally painted, and built.
  • Rumble seat.
  • Disk brakes up front.
  • Rebuilt 24-stud Ford flathead with a reliable Holley 4-barrell carb.
  • Boxed original Model A frame.
  • Ford C4 automatic trans.
  • Ford 9” rear axle.
  • Front disk brakes.
  • 4-inch dropped front axle.
  • Model A frame, boxed in all the right places, deuce rear frame stubs.
  • ’32 Ford fuel tank out back.
  • Adjustable coil-over shocks out back.
  • Beautiful upholstery, including rumble seat.
  • Very clean chassis and underside.
  • Tilt steering.
  • Vega cross-steering.
  • Coker Classic radial whitewall tires, plenty of tread
  • Dolphin gauges.

1930 Ford Model A TRADITIONAL REAL HOT ROD

Message  Predicta le Sam 26 Oct - 17:26


This is not a new build but a Restoration from a Surviving Vintage Hot Rod from the early 1950's !

Many of the parts have been re-purposed.

The Sedan has a 4" Chop with the body mounted back on the frame like it was originally built back then, leaving the splash aprons attached. Featuring authentic Lakes Style Headers and period correct parts.



HISTORY: Originally built between 1949 and 1952: After returning from the WWII many Vets wanted to go fast: The owner of this one was no excexption. Its original 4 cylinder was modified many times to go as fast as possible on the back roads of Oregon and then North West Montana. With dreams of dry lake beds the Sedan began its transformation from family car to Hot rod in 1949 when the first of many Flathead V8's was installed. In 1950 a 1937 Flathead was installed and transmission:

"the same transmission still operates today" also the 1933 front axle was installed. After a couple of years the Sedan was changed yet again to go even faster: a 1940 Flathead was installed along with juice brakes all the way around and by the end of 1952 the hood and fenders were removed along with front and rear bumpers and guards leaving the splash aprons. The result being the Model a A-V8 as they were called back then. The car operated for many years between Oregon and Monatana where it was a daily driver. The Model A was never really all that fast, but it was loud and felt fast and that is all the mattered at the time. In 1987 the Sedan was once again torn down for a rebuild and restoration adding many new parts, the 1945-1948 Flathead 239 59 AB along with many other plans were stalled for many years as the A-V8 was passed from one family member to another finally being completed the last couple of years.

1930 Ford Model A

Message  Predicta le Lun 18 Nov - 22:56

1930 Ford Model A Street Rod. By first glance, it has a Rat Rod look. But at closer examination, this classic has a ton of money put into it, with the best of the best parts and accessories used in the build. If you want to ‘blend in’ in a crowd, this may not be the car for you! At any angle, the Model A just looks ‘right’. Quintessential in every aspect! A Throwback to a much simpler time, that all of us would like to go back to!

The build began August, 2006. It took about 3 years to complete. There is about 450 miles on the build of this car since its completion. It is a Bruiser Body, from Lake Havasu City, AZ. The unfinished “rolling Chassis” and body shipped to the door was $16,800 in 2006! Keep that in mind-unfinished! Without Engine, Trans, Interior, gauges, etc! What increases the cool factor of this Ford is the 401 V8 Buick Nailhead engine, with the 3 x 2 Carburetors, connected to a brand new Tremec 5 speed Manual Transmission. I am unsure to the horsepower rating, but it is quick! Smoke the tires fast, and won’t hurt you at the pump… A great combination! Below I have highlighted the Specs & NEW parts used in the build:

Bruiser Enterprises Reproduction 1929 Model A 2 door Sedan Fiberglass Body with Steel Reinforcement. Painted Flat Black with Satin Clear. 5” Chop, 4” Channel, with the Drilled Visor option.
401 V8 Nailhead Engine (from a 1963 Buick – mileage unknown).
Tremec 5 Speed Manual Transmission.

4 “ Boxed Frame by Street Rod Engineering, Painted Gloss Black.
Rack and Pinion Cross Steering- (Feels like Power Steering).
3x2 Offenhauser Intake and Rochester Carbs. (Built by Automotion).
Offenhauser Nailhead Valve Covers.
Joe Hunt Magneto’s Electric Distributor.

Chrome Dropped I Beam Front Axle, Hairpins, & Front Shocks.
Chrome Coil Over Rear Shocks.
11” – 4 Wheels Disc Brake Kit with Master Cylinder.
195/75/R15 Front. 235/75/R15 Rear Coker Wide Whites.
Red Powdercoated Steel Wheels, with Chrome V8 Hubcaps.
Ford 9” Rear end with 4:11 Gears.


Functioning Moon Interior Gauges.
Power Windows.
Power Windshield Wiper.
Flaming River Shorty Chrome/Stainless Steering Column.
1932 Style Smooth Interior Dash.
Hurst Shifter and Ball.

Air Speed Indicator (Because Its Different!)
Altimeter (Which is a Clock) Both located in Center Console.
Alpine CD Player and Speakers.
14 Gallon RCI Fuel Cell.
Optima Battery w/ Protective Plastic Cover.
Custom Airplane Style Black Leather Interior with matching Headliner and Interior Door Panels, and Black Carpet.
Custom Hand Painted & Cleared Pin Striping and Nailhead.

1930 Ford Model A Coupe - Jim Keeter

Message  Predicta le Mar 19 Nov - 7:44

Fifteen-year-old Jim Keeter was the happiest kid on the block the day his dad brought home an old Model A Coupe in 1950. The father-and-son team tore into the old Ford with the intent of building a cool hot rod. Jim did most of the work with guidance from his dad along with a few of his older hot rodding friends. By the time he started high school, the car was drivable but far from finished. Work progressed during his sophomore year, which included chopping the top, installing a flathead mill and fitting a genuine '34 Auburn dashboard. By his junior year, Jim upgraded the hardware to a "full-race" flathead, a LaSalle transmission, and a quick-change rearend. He finished out his high school experience adding paint, chrome, and upholstery during his senior year.

Street racing quickly became one of Jim's interests, and his father wisely advised him to do his racing on the Santa Ana Drag Strip. Before shipping off with the U.S. Navy Sea-Bees in 1955, Jim sold the coupe to his best friend, who totaled the car in 1956. Thinking ahead, Jim removed the engine, transmission, and rearend from the Model A, which all would become the basis for his rear-engine '27 T roadster, built after his return from the Navy. This racecar was the starting point for some serious drag racing that would last until 1965, when he reached the pinnacle by building his own successful blown, Hemi-powered, front-engine digger. After that, Jim drifted away from earthbound speed and moved onto airplanes.

Skip forward 30 years and Jim became inspired by a friend who was building a Model A coupe. He decided right then it was the perfect time to recreate his high school hot rod. This time the starting point was nowhere near as complete as the first one, but the rusted and battered bare body and frame did have an original California pink slip.

Jim's fabrication skills came in handy when he got busy repairing all the rust with self-stamped patch panels. After the body was again sound, Jim removed 2 1/2 inches from the roof height, just like his original coupe. With the body roughed out, Jim utilized his skills fabricating a brand-new chassis from fresh steel with original Model A horns on the front and '32 horns on the rear.

Jim says the most difficult part of recreating his old coupe was finding the exact same pieces he used over 50 years ago, and that really came into play when it came time to build the engine. While flatheads were a dime a dozen in 1950, finding a rebuildable 8BA block was the first hurdle. After all the parts were machined, it was like riding a bike for Jim, assembling the mill just like the old days.

With the frame and engine taking shape, attention was put back on the body with Jim laying out the House of Kolor two-stage Passion Purple over the reworked metal. Replicating the original look of the coupe is a pair of Deitz headlights, '50 Pontiac taillights, white steelies in black rubber, and owner-built nerf bars.

Inside is more of Jim's handiwork. Back when Jim built his first coupe, you were still able to pick a '34 Auburn dash out of an old relic down at the local wrecking yard, but since that was a long time ago and an original could not be reasonably located, he had no choice but to build one from scratch.Jim proves that while you can't ever go back, you can do it all over bigger and better than in your wildest high school dreams.

 


Jim & Kathy Keeter
Long Beach, California
1930 Ford coupe

Drivetrain
When Jim was recreating his high school hot rod, one of the greatest challenges was replicating the original mill. A rebuildable 8BA ('49-53) Ford block was located, and after Reath Automotive (Long Beach, CA) got it back into shape, Jim loaded it with all the good stuff including a polished Mercury crank and a Clay Smith camshaft. The 275ci engine was topped off with a pair of repo Smith finned aluminum heads and an original Edelbrock intake sporting four Stromberg 81 carbs. Following the formidable flatty is a '39 gearbox that spins a Halibrand quick-change sandwiched between a pair of '35 axle housings and '56 Ford pickup drums.

Chassis
Years of fabricating skills came in handy for Jim when he scratch-built his own frame from steel channel (he wanted the un-boxed look of an original, with the added strength of larger material). Original pieces attached to the fresh rails include an early dropped, drilled, and filled axle up front with '40 Ford brakes on each end. New pieces added to the mix include SO-CAL covered tube shocks, a Vega steering box, and a '32 Ford-style fuel tank from Tanks.

Wheels & Tires
Nothing fancy was needed in the rolling stock department since a set of 15-inch steelies with caps and rings match the original equipment Jim was running 50 years ago. A modern concession to drivability is the 195/75R15 and 225/70R15 Hercules radial rubber.

Body & Paint
The top was chopped 2 1/2 inches like the original before Jim laid on the House of Kolors Passion Purple. Additional elements true to the original include '50 Pontiac taillights and owner-built nerf bars.

Interior
Phil's Upholstery (Wilmington, CA) made the retro vibe complete with an off-white vinyl stitch job. The scratch-built '34 Auburn-style dash and gauge panel and owner-built '40 Ford-style column topped by a gennie '40 Ford Deluxe steering wheel keep the '50s theme.
