Message  Predicta le Sam 16 Nov - 17:14

1927 Ford Track-T Custom Roadster

--2x4 inch steel frame
--Split wishbone front end
--30’s Ford-style wire wheels
--Removable hard top
--All matching Stewart Warner gauges
--Tilt steering column
--Custom steering box
--Excellent black paint job with painted flames under clear coat

MotoeXotica recently got our hands on a fantastic looking custom hot rod. In our showroom, we have an awesome 1927 Ford Track-T Custom Roadster. The exterior has a brilliant deep black paint job with painted bright orange flames on the front of the car. The flames are under a clear coat that helps the fire flicker under a bright sun.

The body is composed of fiberglass. There is a split wishbone front end, and the period-correct front and rear brakes will help give you a sense of safety as you crank this baby to top speed.

This custom hot rod comes with an Ididit tilt steering column to make access and driving much more comfortable. The dash houses a set of matching Stewart Warner gauges that are all functional including the blinkers, horn and headlights. The interior is orange color with black and is in excellent condition, perfect for Halloween and for fall coming into full swing.

The engine is a 3.8 L, V6 odd-fire GM motor. The body is a 2x4 steel frame. The painted wire wheels are matching orange 30’s Ford-style. Rear suspension is complete with air shocks. If you want to feel the wind wiz by, you can easily take off the removable hard top that is in excellent condition including the rear Plexiglas window.

1927 Ford Model T Coupe - Flat-T

Message  Predicta le Mar 7 Jan - 8:38


In case you haven't noticed the Model T is back and it's back in a big way. Well, OK, maybe it is no real threat to the Deuce, but we are seeing more of these cars again. The Model T had pretty much gone the way of a phone booth-nearly extinct. Of course the fact the Model T and a phone booth share a lot of styling elements is fairly obvious, but while the phone booth is no doubt doomed, the Model T coupes and sedans are enjoying a revival of sorts.



What brought about this renaissance is not perfectly clear, but the rat rod movement was no doubt a contributor to the square car resurgence. After all, whack the top a half-foot, channel it another half-foot and there was a wicked profile and still enough glass to see the outside world. Now none of this was lost on Paul Duval, a longtime street rodder from Hendersonville, North Carolina. As a matter of fact, when he purchased this coupe it was a running rat rod that had two things he was looking for: a Flathead engine and an attitude.



Plan A was to simply clean things up a bit, remove some of the clutter, like side-mounted spare tires, and simply enjoy the car in all its patina glory. Ah, but the best laid plans of street rodders often go awry and when it was suggested that the top was a bit too tall there was but one cure. The roof was deftly cut 6 inches in the front and a mere 4 inches in the rear. This great hot rod roof rake amplified the attitude of the coupe and of course talk then turned to the fact that maybe, just maybe, this car was way too cool to be left in an unfinished state. The good news is you can take the body off the frame on a fenderless car in no time.



So the Model T coupe underwent a complete rebuild with attention to detail and attitude dealt with in equal portions. In keeping with Henry's legendary wishes the car remains black, although it should be noted that prior to 1913 and at the end of the Model T production, the Model T was in fact available in several other colors, including green, gray, and red. We'd like to think ol' Henry would approve of both the color choice and the powerplant in this particular hot rod.



The coupe rests on an interesting frame. The centersection is original Model T, with a box tubing front and rear clip added by Custom Works by Michael in Bostic, North Carolina. The hot rod chassis blends the 2x4 box tubing that is Z'd front and rear with the stock centersection in such a way that is appears to be all box tubing. Up front a Pete & Jakes dropped-and-drilled axle holds Wilwood disc brakes and receives directions from a Unisteer rack-and-pinion steering system, while a traditional transverse spring and tube shocks smooth out the highway.



Out back a Ford 8-inch rear holds 3.53 final gears and is located via a contemporary four-bar arrangement with coilover shocks providing adjustable ride height suspension. Rolling stock for the coupe comes in the form of The Wheelsmith 16-inch wire wheels fitted with Coker Firestone bias-ply whitewall tires that are sized 6.00-16 front and 7.50-16 rear. Spinning those big 7.50 rears is a task handled by a nicely warmed-over Flathead. By 1953 the Mercury Flathead V-8 was displacing 255 ci and producing 125 hp; 1953 would also be the last year of the venerable Flathead engine. The engine was in such good condition that it still displaces the original 255 ci. Paul had Bridges Auto Parts handle the machining of the internal parts. The stock rods, pistons, and crankshaft are now balanced and an Isky 3/4 cam lifts the valves in the block. The water pumps are from Speedway Motors and the engine is topped off with as set of finned aluminum heads from Offenhauser. An Offenhauser intake holds a trio of Stromberg 94s while Speedway Motors supplied the ignition. A set of Sanderson headers completes the high-performance street Flathead. Greg Deal of Morganton, North Carolina, handled the final engine assembly. The end result is a sweet-running flat motor that passes power back through a Tremec five-speed transmission coupled to the Flathead with an Honest Charlie bellhousing. This combination allows the little coupe to motor on effortlessly at highway speeds.



With the chassis completed attention was turned to the body. As we mentioned earlier it was determined that there was all-together too much glass in the coupe so it was taken to Custom Works by Michael where Michael Blanton handled the body mods. What we find refreshing about the coupe is the restraint used in the overall build. The stock door handles and hinges are still in place and while the firewall has been smoothed it remains body color. One subtle change that often goes unnoticed is the abbreviated sunvisor. When the panels were laser straight the DuPont Chroma Premier black paint was laid down by John Smith. Mark Peters gave the body and chassis that final touch of detail with some of the finest pinstriping you'll find anywhere.

Message  Predicta le Mar 7 Jan - 8:39

Inside the coupe is pure '50s with a black and white checker pattern that works well with the pure and simple hot rod. The marine grade leather and Bentley cut pile carpet were handled by James Auto Upholstery in Fletcher, North Carolina. The steering column is from LimeWorks combined with a genuine '27 Model T steering wheel and Stewart Warner gauges in a finned aluminum panel monitor the flat motor. Air conditioning in the coupe is an elaborate three-stage system involving separate driver and passenger side temperature settings. Crank down the left window to cool the driver, crank down the passenger window for co-pilots, and when full cooling is required crank both windows and the windshield, it's a system that is both "green" and effective!



What Paul and Krishna Duval had envisioned as a basic beater in vintage patina became a fully detailed traditional hot rod. The transformation has made the T coupe a real crowd pleaser and the good news is the car is still a driver; it just looks better going down the road.

Re: Ford T hot rod (1908 - 1927) - T rod

Message  Predicta le Mar 7 Jan - 8:52


You've probably heard about those folks who have been out of hot rodding for a while and then get back into the hobby after decades of inactivity. On the other extreme, you can also find folks who built their hot rod decades ago and still own them. But Bill Post, from West Des Moines, Iowa, takes a little from both columns.

Bill was 16 when he purchased his first car back in 1972, a '55 Chevy two-door hardtop, and he still owns the car. By 1977, he'd attended the NSRA Nationals in St. Paul (in a T-bucket) and got permanently hooked on hot rods. Both of his brothers, Russel and Donald, have acquired many rods over the years, and collectively the trio has owned nearly any type of muscle car or rod you can name, from Mustangs to Corvettes, and from Chryslers to Model As.



In the early '80s, Bill had built his first street rod, a '38 Chevy truck, which he then sold for parts to build a T-bucket. The idea was to build a pair of twins-one 402 big-block T for Russel, and a small-block copy for Bill.



The work started in August of 1984 when Bill took a long weekend and fabricated the chassis for both vehicles, which soon yielded a pair of rollers. The brothers reinforced the 'glass body of Bill's car by hand-laying fiberglass on wood around the interior. The floor, made from 3/4-inch plywood, was also 'glassed in to accomodate a three-inch channel over the frame, and 3/4-inch plywood was 'glassed to the interior firewall, too.

By the spring of '85 Bill had met his future wife, Tammy, and work slowed on the projects. Bill's T was relegated to the corner of Russel's shop, nearly complete with the body mounted, windshield installed, motor and tranny dropped in, and the radiator, headlights, and more already mounted.

This engine was out of a '67 Nova owned by Al Chindlund of rural Alta, Iowa. It had been drag raced in the early '70s at Humboldt County Dragway in Humboldt, Iowa, and Bill purchased the short-block from Al's brother, Norm, in 1985.



The '67 Chevy 283 was raced back in the '70s at local Iowa racetracks, but Bill purchased the motor, which was bored .060 over, in 1985. It now sports a Holley 600 carb, Sanderson headers, a Walker flex fan, and a Comp Cams bumpstick. The trans is a TH350 unit, and power run to a '57 Ford 9-inch rear.

The '67 Chevy 283 was raced back in the '70s at local Iowa racetracks, but Bill purchased By 1985 Russ had finished his car, but Bill's sat while he gathered up what little parts he still needed. This included the pre-'16 Model T steering wheel, which is an original maple wood rim purchased at a swap meet for $15.00 in 1984 and refinished by Bill's neighbor, Ralph Lane.

When Bill and Tammy got married, Russ thoughtfully gave the honeymooners a Stewart Warner speedometer for a wedding present-one of the few things not listed on the couple's registry! But don't let it be said Tammy didn't want her man working on a hot rod. She did, but the priorities in Bill's life were shifting, and the T got lower and lower on the list.

Changing jobs from being a welder/fabricator to a becoming a firefighter was a big change for Bill, but throw in a major house remodel and moving to West Des Moines, and you can see where some of the time must have gone. The T was never far, though, even as it became something of a shelf to stack things on in Bill's garage.




Twenty years later, life was going well for Bill and Tammy, and they decided they'd like to get the car finished, so they hired Russ in September of 2005 to finish the assembly.

Russ worked on dialing in the drivetrain, doing the needed wiring, plus painting the ride in December of the same year. Tammy and Bill had decided on the color by looking at paint chip cards at The Body Parts Store in Des Moines. The color caught Bill's eye and he just knew it was right, and he adds the final choice had nothing to do with it being Tammy's favorite color.

Bill and Tammy got their car back in the spring of '06 and took it to Pro-Stitch Upholstery where the pleated off-white vinyl interior and marine-grade carpet was installed (as Bill's car doesn't have a top, he needed to use weather-resistant material). Mike Johnson and Beth Bedell are the proprietors and they work out of a modest shop out in the Iowa countryside. Bill says they're great people and they do good work.

The pair also stitched up the boots around the steering column, shifter, brake pedal, and E-brake in a black vinyl. They also made a removable pouch, located under the dash, in black vinyl and they finished off the edge around the body with hidem welt and a stitched vinyl bead.

When it came to the wood dash, Russ had talked with Glen Bauer of Alta, Iowa, about cutting down an appropriate piece of wood. Glen said "I have just the piece of wood for that project," and went on to say that he had this unusual piece of Spalding maple that he was saving for one of the "Post Boys" projects.




With the final assembly done, the couple was then able to debut their brand-new, 22-year-old hot rod at the Goodguys Heartland Nationals in July of 2006. Now at a point where he can devote some time and effort into building hot rods for himself, Bill has gotten his own home shop up and running and is not only working on a '35 Ford Tudor slantback for himself, but a '34 Ford roadster for Tammy, too. With a smile, Bill says these cars will not take 22 years to finish and, when retirement comes around for Bill, he'll still have his '55 Chevy to keep him busy. See? Life does come full circle if you wait long enough!

T-BUCKET, 350 CI V8, 350 TRANS,

Message  Predicta le Jeu 9 Jan - 8:22

Like it or not, the T-Bucket is back in a big way. There's surely a reason why we can't keep them in stock, and when they're as nice as this 1923 T, we're quite certain one of you traditional hot rod guys will grab this one up in the next few weeks, too.


The look is perhaps the most instantly-recognizable hot-rod of all time, equal parts cartoon and serious performance threat, and the abbreviated Model T roadster pickup body has a few styling cues to let you know its origins. Painted in bright red, this one stands out through the clever use of unique details and quality workmanship. The paint shines beautifully and it's clear that a lot of time went into the build before a drop was sprayed. Once it was finished, some traditional pinstripes were laid down just right, accenting the more interesting parts of the car and giving it a proper '50s vibe. Some of the other cool items on this car include the grille and radiator shell, the polished maple firewall, and the wrap-around upholstery on the door panels to soften the spot where you'd rest your elbow. Out back, the abbreviated pickup "bed" has been commandeered for the fuel cell and protected by a tubular grab rail, and there's a trailer hitch in case you want to add some trunk space for a long cruise. LED taillights offer a traditional look with modern tech that looks great at night.


The interior is, of course, minimalist, but the tan leather upholstery is beautifully stitched and ultra clean. I suppose it's technically a bench, but it is split in the middle to provide some support and keep you planted behind the track-style 4-spoke steering wheel. A full complement of Dolphin white-faced instruments in a billet panel show you what's going on up front (well, the things you can't see, anyway), and a billet tilt column makes for a far more comfortable driving position than most T-buckets. And dig that skull shift knob, athe perfect complement to the T-bucket's outrageous looks and a nod to the past. A cleverly hidden remote-controlled AM/FM/CD stereo with speakers throughout the interior provides enough sound power to overcome the side pipes and yes, the tan canvas top is removable for true open-air motoring.


A small block Chevy V8 provides motive power, and since it's out in the open like that, the 350 cubic inch mill is dressed up for show. Finned aluminum valve covers are a super traditional touch matched by a billet air cleaner and plenty of shiny parts scattered around the engine bay. There's a mild cam inside, an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor, and those long-tube headers and side pipes that are part of the T's DNA, so it runs well enough to need all that rubber out back. A quick-shifting TH350 3-speed automatic drives a narrowed 10-bolt rear end, which hangs on a 4-link with coil-over shocks. The front suspension uses a tubular front axle and a leaf spring to hang it waaaay out there, giving the T a rather sleek look. Flashy Cragar aluminum wheels look vintage and wear skinny 215/70/15 front tires and giant 295/50/15 rear meats.


Hot rodding has evolved, but the T-bucket remains a constant. Perhaps that's why people like them so much. At the very least, I can guarantee this one will always put a smile on your face. Call today!

1923 Ford Turtle Deck - The First Black Widow

Message  Predicta le Mer 5 Mar - 20:28


While out at the La Verne Cool Cruise, I ran into two Black Widows sitting right in the middle of all the activities. The roadster pickup in the background is the recreation of the Monogram plastic model brought to life by the crew at Hollywood Hot Rods (be sure to check out our September 2009 issue for the whole story and photos). The '23 Ford turtle deck here was most likely the first Black Widow and was built around 1952 by Wally Olson of Fresno, California. It was later reworked by Bill Scott and won many awards through the early Sixties. The roadster recently underwent a two year restoration to its original condition by Rusty Ranch Restoration.


A few of the details include a 274ci '42 Mercury Flathead, '39 Lincoln Zephyr trans, '34 Ford rearend with a Halibrand quick-change and torque tube, '39 Ford hydraulic brakes and 16x5 wheels, and a '37 Ford tube axle.
