Lot #5004 - Following in the footsteps of such iconic cars as the Pierson brother's coupe, SO-CAL Belly Tank, and "The California Kid," Jimmy Shine's 1934 Ford truck is considered a milestone Hot Rod by many. It took the Hot Rod world by storm when it graced the cover of the Rodders Journal in 2001, followed by 65 magazine features to date. The truck has also seen TV time, appearing on eight different series such as "Hard Shine," "American Icon" and "Hot Rod Build Off." It was hand-picked by Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top to appear in his rock video "I Gotsta Get Paid." TV aside, this pickup has become an ambassador of the Hot Rod world by travelling across international borders and was featured at the Mooneyes Show in Yokohama, Japan. Closer to home, the truck resides at its place of birth; the SO-CAL Speed Shop in Pomona, CA, surrounded by legends of the industry like Pete Chapouris, Alex Xydias and visiting heroes like Art Chrisman, Carl Olsen, Wayne Jesel and the list goes on. Mechanically the truck comes from an original Ford body and chassis. Shine chopped the cab 5" and channeled the body 6" featuring a semi-belly-panned floor, '40 Ford dash, hand-built bed with '40 Ford pockets, Studebaker top rolls and a lowered tailgate. The interior consists of two real aircraft ejection seats and Ron Mangus stitched military canvas upholstery. The engine is a 277cid H&H Flathead with Navarro heads and intake, and two Stromberg carburetors on top of a S.C.O.T. supercharger. The transmission is a '39 Ford mated to a '41 Ford differential on a heavily modified Henry Ford frame designed by Shine with solid front axle and wishbones. One of the most distinguishing features is the custom red wheels built by Shine at Boyd Coddington's shop after hours. Each wheel took three donor wheels starting with '32 Studebaker spoke centers, '35 Ford bells and caps, then attached to custom hoops, and like the rest of this Hot Rod they are truly unique.
