Description

Lot #803 - This full custom, all-steel Model A Hot Rod pickup was completed in 2011 by Jason Graham Hot Rods in Portland, TN. It was designed to blend period-perfect traditional components with modern styling. The truck features a custom-built frame made from mandrel-bent 2x4 box tube that is Z'd 5" in the front and 12" in the rear. To finish off the chassis in traditional form, split '35 Ford wishbones front and rear were added, along with a Winters quick-change rear, Lincoln drums and a Schroeder cowl steering box. Completing the look, early Ford wheels with '48 Ford caps and Firestone rubber were used. Providing power is a '57 Cadillac 365 with a rare, vintage Edelbrock intake and four 9 Super 7 carburetors. The motor was completely rebuilt featuring parts from Egge Machine Company. The 6" chop and channeled body was lengthened to provide adequate legroom and comfort for a car that stands less than 4' tall. Keeping to the traditional theme, the body was covered in PPG Kingswood Gray from a '49 Cadillac. The new bed was shortened 9" and fitted with African padauk wood and chrome strips. The grille, which is from a '34 Ford commercial, was shortened 4". No detail was overlooked on the exterior of this beautiful Hot Rod. The complete interior is equally impressive. A narrowed '48 Ford dash was used, which retains the original gauges fitted with VDO internals. Pearlcraft in Australia reduced the original '48 Ford steering wheel to 15" for better proportion. Ridler-winning M&M Hot Rod Interiors in Holy Pond, AL designed the complete interior which features black leather and early Cadillac fabric inserts and a full headliner finishes the traditional look. The truck was debuted at Goodguys Columbus where it picked up a Pro's Pick award. The same award was later received in Scottsdale. Awards not included. The truck has also been featured in several magazines, including a cover and feature in the January 2012 issue of Rod & Custom. **TITLED AS A 1930 FORD SPECIAL CONSTRUCTION**
