When you see a bare metal hot rod that's slammed to the ground and has a tall V8, you know it isn't your grandfather's 1930 Ford Model A Roadster. And the way this hand-formed all-aluminum body has been polished to a chrome-like shine lets you know it gets parked ahead of those family heirlooms at the car shows.
Bare metal builds are often about showing off industrial toughness, but this one is pure artful elegance. After all, the closer you look, the more you'll realize that when a car gets left with nothing to hide, it can only use the best panels. So while this gives off the instant impression that the bad boy arrived, you'll really be taking pride in the workmanship. And the quality is in more than just the bare body. This is a thoughtful build where the speed holes are evenly spaced on the windshield frame and rear panel so there's fashion within the function. The rear spun aluminum fuel tank is protected by a strong cage. And the suicide doors allow for inside hinges so that nothing gets in the way of the beautiful curves of the hand-formed body. And this loves to remind everyone that this custom build is still a true classic hot rod. You see it in the low drop-axle front, motorcycle headlight pods, and those salt flat style wheels with classic Firestone tires.
The interior keeps the bare metal attitude, and it's what keeps this one an award-worthy machine. It's so detailed that they even made a special dye just to make the seating and side panels look like a stitched tuck and roll fabric. The dash artfully displays the full Stewart Warner gauges, the chopped windshield has a sporty rake, and the steering wheel looks like a classic sports unit. So this looks like the coolest roadster around...except it's all in a monotone because it's all bare metal!
This is a modern build of a classic hot rod, and the engine really brings that idea together nicely. You're looking at one of the most modern classic small blocks available: a Chevy LT1 motor. All the best pieces are, of course, aluminum. This includes the heads, intake, and radiator. It inhales deeply with a Holley 670 Street Avenger four-barrel carburetor. And those lake-style headers have glasspack mufflers fitted within so that you have a terrific V8 tune. You get control over this motor better than you'd ever expect in a hot rod thanks to the six-speed manual transmission. This feeds into an Auburn 10-bolt Positraction rear end with 4.56 gears for quick and confident take-offs. There are also Monroe shocks in the rear and Wilwood disc brakes up front. You'll love looking at the undercarriage photos where this low mileage build can show off its full custom reinforced TIG-welded tubular chassis. And it's fully powder coated to make sure it all looks uniform.
This is a unique build that has already had a few magazine features, and you can see it's ready for a ton more. So if you're looking for a roadster with bright and beautiful craftsmanship, call today!!!
