Lot #1059 - Unique is the best word to describe this elegant Street Rod. Numerous modifications went into this 1931 Chevrolet 2 door sedan. The entire car was stretched by 12". A '32 Chevy hood was stretched with an extra side vent added. 8" were added to the front of the firewall to allow more leg room and also room for the air and heat unit. All the wood was removed and replaced with steel, the roof was filled, and the running boards were custom made. To keep the car entirely steel, metal fenders were also custom fit. A '32 Ford grille with '32 Chevy light bar and aftermarket headlights were used to add to the creative look. A Pete & Jake's chrome dropped axle with 4-bar suspension was used in the front, while an 8" Ford rear end is held by 4-bar suspension and coilovers in the back. A 305 Chevy bored 40 over backed by a 350 Turbo provides the motivation. Power disc brakes, power steering, 100 amp alternator and Walker radiator add modern convenience and reliability. The elegance of the exterior may only be upstaged by the beautiful interior. The creme colored seats are surrounded by custom door panels and overhead console that contain color changing fiber optic lights. The chrome Ididit steering column sits in a custom dash with VDO gauges. The interior contains many of the necessities of the demanding Street Rodder such as power windows, air/heat and defrost, custom stereo, CB radio, cruise control and remote door openers. To finish off the classic look of this Rod, 16" and 17" wire wheels with BFGoodrich tires and a Varco storage trunk with folding rack were added. This car is also 2008 NSRA 23-point safety check certified. This very well built Rod is elegant and unique enough for the most demanding car collector, yet still retains Hot Rod essence and drivability for the pure Hot Rodder.
