1932 Ford Custom Street Rod
This impressive Little Deuce Roadster was meticulously massaged, fit and finished dipped into a vat of Deep Black PPG then cut and buffed to a blinding shine. The only thing more eerie than the depth of the paint are the ghostly blue flames.
This engine is a TRUE fully blueprinted 355 ci four bolt main Chevrolet V8. It is the creation of master race engine builder and machinist Steve Flatt, of Steve Flatt racing engines. It was purpose built to take advantage of all the power potential from the polished BDS 6-71 blower with its twin matched Demon carbs.
Peak performance was insured by a polished Callies crank shaft, 8.5 to 1 custom JE pistons, H beam rods, custom Comp Cam ( the grind is the builders secret ) roller tipped rocker arms and hydraulic roller lifters. The heads are high end after market aluminum with custom valves and triple springs, they have been hand ported and polished, cc’d then port matched to the intake manifold. MSD lights the fire. Sandersen long tube headers collect into a 3″ custom exhaust.
The transmission is a bullet proof corvette 700-R4 built to handle the 750 hp.
The frame and suspension are custom by well known frame builder and fabricator Mark Lockhart, of Lockhart Enterprises. It is fully boxed and x-membered. The IFS is polished stainless by TCI with adjustable coil over shocks. The rear suspension is a chrome 4 link with panard bar and adjustable coil over shocks. All the power is put to the road via a Currie ford 9″ that sports a polished center section, big axle bearings, 4/11 gears and posi. And of course 4 wheel disc brakes.
There is more and it is all good but I have said enough. This car is fun, fast and a real head turner. I think anyone would be proud to be seen in and own this car at twice the price. I know I am !
