With an endless assortment of components, a deep pool of talent and many ways to fuse the two together, the possibilities are simply limitless. And the best part is: modern rods can be as driver-friendly as production cars while offering twice the style. Wrapping a svelte leather interior in a polished Hot Hues profile, this award-winning Ford is about a nice as hot rods come. And with a Lobeck chassis, an all-steel body and a smooth GM small block, it's a fully sorted custom that's ready for years of enjoyment. Want to view the street rod scene from the best seat in the house? Take a close look at this awesome sedan! BODYWORK/TRIM Owned by the same enthusiast since the mid 1970s, this impressive Ford is the beneficiary of a detailed, body-off restoration that wrapped in early 2013. During that 16-year build, Lobeck's V8 Shop married original Ford steel to a quality Bitchin Products firewall and fresh Bitchin Products floorpans. Successfully shored up, the car's newly solid fuselage was bathed in a killer combination of PPG 2-stage that reflects DuPont Hot Hues Harvest Flame over DuPont Hot Hues Ginger Bronze. And in the summer of 2012, this Ford began an all-out assault on the East Coast show scene. As with most first class street rods, much of this sedan's detailing consists of subtle visual tweaks that manifested through hours of labor, years of skill and decades of planning. At the front of the car, custom stainless fenders hang a split bumper and '39 Ford headlights beside a color-keyed DeLuxe grille. At the top of that grille, a nosed hood centers an extended style line in front of smoked glass, which is seated between polished wipers and Vision Hot Rod Concepts mirrors. Beneath those mirrors, shaved suicide doors balance rounded tops between extended drip rails and smooth, extended running boards. And at the back of those boards, custom stainless fenders hang custom taillights and a flush Hagan fuel door behind a second split bumper, a custom Center High Mount Stop Lamp, and a shaved and rounded decklid. ENGINE 'Keep it simple' is a good philosophy when it comes to performance and reliability. Pop this classic's custom VW hood latch and you'll find six liters of General Motors small block that mixes road-ready reliability with effortless, modern performance. Built to tear up the street and wow show goers alike, that 2005-model mill employs a sturdy iron casting, electronic fuel injection and coil-near-plug ignition to create sharp throttle response and immediate torque. At the top of the block, a polished air cleaner caps a factory throttle body, which feeds a color-keyed Corvette intake. At the sides of that intake, hand-fabricated valve covers, which took roughly 250 hours to assemble, cap polished fuel rails and aluminum GM heads. Beneath those heads, GM exhaust manifolds feed large-diameter pipes. At the front of the block, polished Street & Performance serpentine components spin modern power steering between a polished alternator and modern AC compressor. In front of those components, a Walker Cobra radiator secures a SPAL electric puller fan beneath a polished cap and fabricated water tube. And finer details include: braided hoses, pocket hood hinges and complete American Auto Wire wiring. DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION Every good street rod has a solid foundation.
