Hotrods and original classic Fords from
for the future
cars I want to build before I die)
Duke Hallock '32
built by Duke Hallock in the 1950s and featuring a Hallock one off
windshield (not a Duvall). The car's main distinctive feature being it's
1936 V8 Model-60 Cadillac grill. I have the grill shell waiting for me
to build this car.
Herbert's channelled and chopped '32 Fordor was powered by a GMC six
cylinder coupled to a Buick Dynaflow transmission. The rear axle used
was a '36 Ford.
Livingstone's 32 roadster.
Livingstone invented the cart. He also built some great hot rods, this
being my favorite. Duffy's car made a big impression on me when I first
saw it. It was his use of the '41 Ford dash and the wonderful
proportions which struck me. The Cadillac V8 being awesome too! I have
the '41 dash and restored instruments for this project stored away.
serious rod was built in 1949 and ran speeds of 130mph at Bonneville and
El Mirage. Bod Roddick wrecked in in 1950 when he fell asleep behind the
wheel but re-built it.
radically channelled early 50s style rod
dream of channelled rods. Mostly '32s of course but always of the
heavily channelled cars of the late 40s and early 50s. Many of todays
channelled rods feature zedded frames and lowered axles which give them
cartoon like characters and aren't my cup of tea. Note how on all these
50s channelled cars, the frames still ride high despite the bodies
dragging on the ground. No space for bot bellied granddads in these rods.
channelled '36 Tudor
Siegner's channelled roadster
channelled deluxe coupe
standard coupe dragster
one is channelled at least 8 inches
one of these early 50s rods.
