'64 Lemons idling
Chris Johnson's '64 Lemons (Post) has a "mild" 454 with big oval port heads, a medium (230 @ .050",) hydraulic cam and a Richmond 5 speed (no overdrive.) 2.86 gears with the 4.06 first gear is plenty to get it moving on tires that won't hook... for a small moment. Chris did (is doing) all the work himself... a machinest/hot rodder hobbyist and friend.

If fuel injection and $50k paint jobs aren't your scene, take a look at this '31 Ford. There's no air ride or sophisticated...well...anything, really. With a chopped and channeled all-steel body, a big block V8 and tons of old school swagger, this car gets back to the basics without sacrificing build quality or functionality.
Approaching the car, it's difficult to not be taken with its low sleek profile. To achieve these new dimensions, an actual all steel '31 Ford body was sourced then chopped down six inches. To get the body a little closer to the earth, it was then channeled four inches over the framerails before being sprayed a glossy coat of black. Hand painted pinstripes break up the black paint and add some retro flair.
Fenders, hood, door handles, trunk handle, the original taillights and the original glass have all been sacrificed in the name of a clean look. Above the windshield, a body-colored visor keeps out the sun while offering another traditional styling cue. Out back, taillights are neatly relegated to a space under the trunk lid.
Power comes courtesy of a GM 454 big block V8 producing approximately 450hp. Up top, an Edelbrock steel tunnel ram replaces the factory intake and makes room for two Holley 600cfm carbs fed by transparent red fuel lines. Chrome velocity stacks, finned aluminum valve covers, a polished alternator and a handful of billet pieces give the engine bay a tidy but nostalgic look.
Behind that 454 is a TH400 automatic transmission that channels power to a Ford 9 inch rear end. Up front, a traditional drop axle/hairpin setup absorbs bumps while a triangulated 4-link keeps the back end in place. Braking is handled by a 4-wheel disc setup while steering remains a manual effort. At the corners, red steel wheels are wrapped in Firestone white wall tires.
Inside, the interior is all business. The door handles are bent metal rods and the headliner is a series of steel cross members. On the door panels, hand painted pinstripes carry the exteriors theme inside. Instrumentation is handled by Omega Kustom gauges mounted into the factor dash. The steering wheel is a red 10 inch three-spoke piece.
If you're after a badass street rod that'll steal the attention away from those $200k street rods in a heartbeat, this '31 is exactly what you're looking for. With tons of big block power and absolutely killer looks, don't miss the chance to take this one home. Call, click or visit www.rkmotorscharlotte.com for more information.
