1930 Ford Five Window Coupe, All steel, 401 Buick Nailhead, Turbo400, fresh build - Kryptonite
SOLD - Fresh from the pages of Deluxe Car Kulture, Rod & Custom, and Rod &
Kulture magazines, is this '30 Five Window ALL STEEL Street Rod. 1930 Ford
Five-Window called "Kryptonite", running a fresh 401 Buick Nailhead, 6
Stromberg "97" carbs, a brand new "old school" build. Already in magazines
and has won plenty of trophies.... It is an amazing car that was built by
some very talented professional builders in Texas. With only 2,000 well
sorted miles, it is like a newly built car from the sixties. That era was
the inspiration for this awesome show winning coupe. There is a lot going
on here so we'll break it down for you like this: The steel body is chopped
2.5", channeled 6" inches, with a one of a kind fabricated firewall, metal
roof skin, dimpled drilled visor, and motorcycle gas cap. The grille is
from a 32 Ford with handmade insert. The custom Candy-apple Green & Pearl
White paint with custom scallops and pin stripes are simply eye popping!
The killer pinstriping is deep under the clear coat so you can wax it up
before a show and not worry about distorting the stripes. The results speak
for themselves. The unique power plant is a classic early 60's Buick 401
"Nail-head" V-8 with a Drag Star long intake, 6 Stromberg '97' carbs, and
Sanderson lake headers (with baffles). It sounds insane and runs fantastic!
A MSD and Pertronix electronic ignition set up fires the powerful torque
moster Buick mill. A Buick turbo 400
automatic transmission feeds the GM 10 bolt posi rear end which is running
3:08's. The modified Ford frame features '32 rails, a front 4 link
suspension and coil springs are out back. Firestone period correct wide
white walls are 15 inch with the ole cheater slicks on the rear. The front
brakes are DISC with Buick covers and the rear are heavy duty drums. The
interior has some very unique touches. The aluminum bomber seats with
engine turned seat backs and sides are one of a kind. The upholstery is
white pearl vinyl. The metal dash is filled with handsome working gauges.
The shifter is a custom Lokar unit. This build took on a life of its own
and the final results screams sixties magazine quality with the today's
technology - it even has LED tail lights! You can just imagine how much
time and money went into this truly one of a kind rod.
'66 Buick Back From The Dead! - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 5
On this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, we raise a '66 Buick from the dead.
After spending 33 years sitting outside in the desert, the broken down
Buick Special is revived by David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan of HOT ROD
and Rick Pewe of 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine.
Rick's mother bought the car when it was near new and parked it when the
transmission failed in 1978. In 2011, the guys spent two and a half days
wrenching on the car, with the hopes of driving it home from Phoenix to Los
Angeles. Come along for the ride and see what happens!
HOT ROD Unlimited appears every other Friday on the new Motor Trend
