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.
Harley Earl - GM Designer Extraordinaire
Harley Earl, the larger than life, first head of styling for a major
automobile manufacturer gave the world the joy of excess in color, chrome
and steel. Recruited by GM in the late 20s to transform its drab autos and
make them stand out from the offerings of its competitors, Earl transformed
the industry and the American psyche.
He invented the annual model change over, the concept car and put swagger
and some Hollywood panache into a staid industry. While its hard to defend
his buoyant designs as fine art, he captured the imagination of millions
worldwide, especially in Post WWII America, who embraced the outlandish
vehicles as proof that there will be a big and better tomorrow. He knew
how to create and sell dreams. Which is what he learned from his neighbor,
C. B. DeMille.

sister Wilma, a green and white '49 Buick as wedding and prom cars - check
out www.bluemooncars.co.uk for more pics. We're in WInchester in the UK.

A rare car...and very expensive when built..$5000! It served as a showcase

1952 Buick Super Dyna Flow Survivor in great shape w/63K Miles - $OLD!
The price on this car has just been lowered for quick sale and is part of a
collection that is being liquidated.
You simply won't believe it unless you drive it, but this Nassau Blue
metallic 1952 Buick Super Series 50 Dyna Flow has been checked out so
thoroughly in house we would not hesitate to gas it up and drive it to L.A.
from Portland! This 4-door sedan is powered by a Fireball F263ci inline 8
and has a Dyna Flow automatic transmission to works very well. A survivor,
less than 63K original miles believed true, also believed to be the 284th
Buick Super Dyna Flow off the Flint, MI line. A good interior for the age
of the car and the body is in great shape as well with NO rust. The
quality of yesterday remains in this car--the AM radio and heater still
work. Chrome and stainless are in very good shape, all the emblems are
still there and it has wide whitewall tires.
