Satan's Rat-Rod: 1931 Ford - /BIG MUSCLE
• Henry Kessler
The engine is out of a 1952 Diamond-Reo tractor and makes 1,640 lb-ft of
torque. The chassis is pieced together from old light poles from the City
of Hollywood. The body... that's from a 1931 Ford. Meet Gretchen, one of
the coolest rat-rods we've ever seen and a ride that turns heads wherever
it goes. This ain't no hybrid, instead it's a black smoke belching,
gasoline guzzling, animal of a car that's not only amazing to look at, but
with some cool hidden engineering, has the ability to surprise even the
most hardened of motor-heads.
1965 Corvair Corsa with a Crown Engineering V8 conversion
I have owned this car since the early 1980's. It was a lifetime dream to
own and build this car. This car is beautiful. From a distance it appears
as a stock Corvair with a few modifications. However, it is far from stock.
This car is also not a luxury car. It is more in the lines of a race car
for the street. The car has been driven less than 200 miles during my
ownership. The body was completely restored about 10 years ago. The body
panels were replaced with fiberglass panels. The only steel that remains on
the car is the doors, rear cove, and roof. The wheel wells, trunk area and
floors have all been done in aluminum. The engine is a small block Chevy
from a 1966 Chevy II factory rated at 275 hp. The car has been sitting for
a few years and does have a few small leaks. I did just replace the
carburetors with new Holley 600 with vacuum secondaries. It has a Saginaw
4 speed. One last thing, It's FAST!

Quick teaser clip of my recently reborn 1966 Corvair. I redesigned the rear

larger 455 big block Oldsmobile power package from an early Toronado. Video
