2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Edition 507 Wagon! The Modern Hammer Wagon? - Ignition Ep. 76
On this episode of Ignition, Jonny Lieberman travels to Germany to drive a
car we don't get, the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Edition 507 Wagon. Through the
winding roads of the Black Forest to the mean straights of Germany's
notorious Autobahn, Lieberman puts the 507 horsepower, 450 pound-feet
of torque super wagon through its paces. The question isn't whether or not

mighty Hammer Wagon.

132559 / 1955 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/86cfjw2
This Mandarin Orange ultra-custom '55 Crown Victoria has won trophies at
the Grand National Roadster Show, the Blackie Gejeian Fresno Autorama,
Carlisle All-Ford Nationals and impressed the likes Boyd Coddington, George
Barris and John Force among others. It's one of the best customs on the
planet and it carries the show history to prove it.
Body modifications were handled by Bernt Karlsson, owner of Customs by
Bernt, who should be familiar to you as Boyd Coddington's painter on the
show American Hotrod. Karlsson began making customizations to the body by
adding a grille and front bumper from a '59 Thunderbird, pushbutton door
openers from a '41 Lincoln and taillights from a '55 Mercury. Once all of
that work was finished, round two consisted of front lights from a '55
Mercury station wagon, rear fender skirts from a '57 Mercury station wagon
and Cadillac wheel covers which provide a nice subtle stock-yet-custom
After the shell was finished, Nosse Brothers took over for the reassembly
and customization of the small details. They installed a full set of custom
fitted Solex tinted glass, painstakingly built up the Art Morrison chassis
before marrying it to the body and handled all finishing aspects of the car
from headliner to fuel lines.
1967 Thunderbird landau seats are done in the same soft, aromatic two tan
leather as the rest of the cockpit and look great next to Nosse Brothers
custom door panels. VDO classic series instruments are set in a customized
'56 Ford dash and the Ididit steering column features a billet Budnik
steering wheel which complements Nosse Brothers billet pedals. This custom
interior veritably screams class, refinement and comfort and makes for an
exceptionally well tied together car.
Art Morrison built the custom 3" by 4" boxed frame and tubular A arm front
suspension which houses Aldan Eagle coil overs at all four corners, a
Morrison spindle set, Wilwood 11" disc brakes and a Flaming River rack. Out
back, a Morrison four link set hangs a Hooper's Ford 9" with 3.50 gears,
Moser 36 spline axles and another pair of Wilwood 11" rear disc brakes.
Stainless fasteners are everywhere, braided hoses carry all fluids and the
top loader 4-speed and a Cannon Engineering driveshaft is as detailed as
the rest of the car. The floors are as perfect as the topside, making a
perfect backdrop to the custom 2.5" ceramic coated Exhaust. This is one show car that's as drivable
as it is perfect!
The big daddy 560 horsepower Ford Racing 460
cubic inch V8 looks right at home in the smoothed engine compartment. D-460
aluminum SCJ heads top the motor, getting their fill from a Blue Thunder
dual quad manifold and a pair of Holley 600s. Doug's Headers and a Modine
radiator round out the package and complement Bernt's smoothed firewall.
Built over a four year period at a cost of more than $250,000, this car is
the fulfillment of a childhood dream. When you've got the right people and
the right plan trophies just about get mailed to your door. It was Boyd
Coddington's personal pick at his eponymous cruise, best of show at John
Force's holiday cruise, finished second at the GNRS in mild custom, took
the Outstanding Elegance award in Fresno, best custom at Carlisle and
Meguiars sponsored the car in 2005. Of course, that list neglects smaller
shows that it's gone to, but suffice to say it never lost. Bob McClurg
himself wrote the car up in a six page spread in Super Rod.
If you're a Ford fan, a custom fan or a 50s fan this car just has to make
you smile. With its show winning history, award winning builders, mountain
of trophies and dynamite looks this is just the custom car centerpiece
you've been looking for to add to your collection!
The Street Sweeper [S8 Ep.11 Teaser]
Stacey dives into the world of the sleeper, by taking a non-descript '73
Plymouth Satellite, and begins transforming it into a street pounding
monster under the skin. Gone is the lethargic 318 engine and front
suspension, and in its place Stacey begins fitting a new state of the art
performance suspension. If you are into surprising people at stop lights
and run-what-you-brung race nights, then a "Street Sweeper" just might be
the sort of approach you want to take on with your next project.
Quick Tip - Take A Few Extra Minutes & Do Things Right
Stacey talks about the importance of taking the time to do things right the
first time and not settling for, "it works fine." Especially when it comes
to thing electrical and fuel related. These will always come back to bite
