Description

Lot #445 - Turning a car into your own idea of perfection is expected in our street rodding hobby. Building it out of an ultra-rare 1940 Nash Lafayette convertible is a whole different story. Knowing full well what it takes to build a quality Street Rod, the owner of this sexy car spent several years collecting parts and building the frame while having the body massaged to perfection before adding the House of Kolors Kandy Red base and black with silver flames. Several old Chevys were parted out to come up with the Air Ride suspension, brakes, and rear-end, while a brand new GM ZZ4 crate motor with 700R4 tranny was dropped into place. This beautiful car also includes Beretta rack & pinion and Griffon radiator. The interior of the Nash was hooked up by installing Dakota Digital gauges, Alpine stereo, Vintage Air and a lot of maroon hide to cover the '39 Ford front sear and custom built rear seat. The final touches include chromed and mirrored engine and the 16" and 18" Budnick wheels wrapped with Toyo rubber. If there were a contest for being truly different and doing it with style and taste, the Nash would definitely be a contender for the top spot.
