This 1950 'Advance Design' Chevrolet 3100 features a great combination of classic virtues and drivability and it's guaranteed to hold its appeal for as long as you own it.
The beneficiary of a two and a half year frame off restoration; every aspect of this award winning truck has been meticulously restored to both preserve the beauty of the design and make the truck more roadworthy. Up front, the familiar chrome grille looks excellent against this trucks bright red exterior. New wide set headlights are complemented by non-original, round amber lights mounted above the pristine front bumper for a look that appears factory correct. The high profile hood features a classic Chevrolet emblem that's in excellent condition up front and great looking "Chevrolet 3100" emblems on each side. The two piece windshield is divided by chrome and sits above a gold pinstripe which circles the whole cab. Behind the cab, a light oak bed is held together with new stainless skid strips and matching light oak bed rails with vintage replica Frontier Gas signs provide a great feeling of 50s service station nostalgia. Two gold pinstripes flow from the light oak bed rails down each of the bed posts to disguise one of the only hard edges on the truck.
Small flashes of new chrome such as a driver's side mirror, door handles, windshield wipers and cool contoured passenger side lock cover give the red exterior a tailored look. On the tailgate, an inverse red on black Chevrolet script is very well done and matches the Chevrolet script on the hub caps. A chrome rear bumper complements chrome tailgate chains and LED brake lights with chrome loomed wiring provide a finished look. Correct large domed center caps with matching trim rings are mounted to 16 inch body color wheels that wear Firestone 60.5 wide white wall tires.
Equipped with a modified Thriftmaster 216 inline six cylinder engine, the bay has a vintage hot rod look. Under hood detailing begins with a fresh coat of satin black paint on the inner fenders that contrasts to the familiar red on the firewall. The Thriftmaster motor is painted bright blue and features a two Rochester single barrel carburetors sitting atop a split manifold. The radiator and engine accessories are painted the same satin black as the engine compartment and blue spark plug wires with red boots are complemented by the finned Offenhauser valve cover. Two chrome air cleaners continue the vintage hot rod theme. All belts and hoses look great and ready for the road and the truck even comes equipped with a correct gloss black horn.
Crawling underneath this 1950 3100 reveals a clean frame with straight sheet metal that's coated in chassis black. A chrome oil pan serves as the main focal point at the bottom of the blue inline six. Correct leaf springs and drum brakes occupy all for corners of this chassis and a correct 3-speed transmission handles shifting duty. Power is put to the ground via a driver friendly Ford 9 inch rear end and a solid axle. A single muffler dual Exhaust system runs the whole length of the truck and meets stainless tips that hang under the curved rear bumper.
Inside, custom red and black seamless door panels include correct chrome window and door handles. A custom red and black bench seat has "Chevrolet" prominently stitched into the center of the back pad. A custom red headliner creates a more comfortable, cockpit like feeling. The dash features traditional stainless trim and a speedometer, a divided gauge with temperature, battery, fuel level and oil pressure, a glove box and a heater/defroster. On the correct black steering wheel a silver horn button mimics the stainless trim on the dash and connects the wheel to a body color steering column complete with a chrome turn signal lever and body color gear selector.
Whether you're racking up more trophies at shows or just spending a Saturday night out on the town, this 1950 Chevrolet 3100 is guaranteed to be the center of attention wherever you go. Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information on this awesome truck!
1950 Chevrolet Truck; running 216 engine.
I saved this one from the crusher. Perhaps one of my favorite sounds... a
running Stove bolt engine. I was able to get the numbers matching
(original) 216 engine running after sitting for nearly 20 years. Splash
oil lubricated connecting rods; pressured mains, cartridge style oil filer
and oil bath air filer. Short block is; as found but, I had the cylinder
head rebuilt with new: valves, guides, springs and seats. At the time of
this video, I had been working on the truck for over 1 year.
The truck was named Cannonball by the previous owner.
Watch for Cannonball Restoration videos in the future.

132792 / 1966 Dodge Coronet 500
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/88uys6d
If you're in the market for a unique Mopar that's a blast to own and drive,
take a closer look at this 1966 Dodge Coronet. Featuring a laser straight
body, show quality paint and a big block backed by a 4-speed, this B-body
is a true crowd pleaser.
The unique color is Glasurit's Sunfire Yellow. Expertly sprayed over a
remarkably straight body, this shade of yellow is guaranteed to turn heads
at any show. Glance underneath the car and the glossy paintwork is
continued on the undercarriage. Being a mid-60s car, trim is kept minimal
but extra care has been taken to ensure each of those pieces looks showroom
fresh. From the chrome bumpers to the stainless window trim, every bit
Under the hood, the original 361 V8 has been replaced by a 440 Magnum.
Factory appearing pieces such as the radiator, battery, horns and decals
lend the bay a stock look while a closer inspection reveals several
Edelbrock components such as the aluminum intake manifold and
Performer-series carburetor. The setup breathes through factory cast iron
Exhausts manifolds connected to a 3"
true dual Exhaust system with Dynomax turbo mufflers.
The 440 is backed by an A833 4-speed manual transmission that makes this
Dodge a blast to drive. Ride control comes courtesy of a stock combination
of torsion bars and leaf springs, rebuilt with amazing attention to detail.
Power meets the ground through a 8.75 rear end that drive a set of Magnum
500 wheels wrapped in 205/75's up front and 235/75's out back. The
undercarriage is fully detailed and shows as well as the rest of the car.
Chrysler interiors of the 1960's were always stunning and this Coronet is
no exception. A dramatically long center console sitting on top of fresh
black carpet anchors the interior while the white seats on either side look
and feel new. The dash retains a stock look with the addition of Stewart
Warner oil, temperature and voltage gauges. Factory sliders control the
Classic Car Auto air conditioning system while a modern stereo is housed
inside the glove compartment.
With the fresh 440 Magnum, 4-speed transmission, detailed undercarriage,
and an awesome vintage interior, someone has invested a great deal of time
and money working this Coronet into its current condition. If you've always
wanted a big block B-body, you won't find a better example for the price.

The Last HEMI - Segment 1- The Journey Begins
In 1978, a 14 year old boy on his bicycle noticed the back end of a '71
Charger R/T sticking out of a garage. The HEMI badges were gone but, being
the son of a racer, he saw the black body stripes and knew there was
something special about the car.
After getting some pointers from his dad, the boy snuck in and popped the
hood. Sure enough, there was a 426 HEMI under there.
The journey was officially underway.
After some door to door detective work, the boy found the owner and made
initial contact. Though the Charger wasn't for sale, it was an important
first step. For most of the next decade, the boy would periodically check
in to see if the car was available, even offering to trade a clean 440
Charger at one point. The owner simply wouldn't budge.
By the 1990s, the boy, now in his mid-twenties, had bought and sold several
vintage Mopars but he'd never forgotten the Charger in his hometown.
Through a chance encounter at a garage sale, he found out the Dodge was
finally for sale. The owner had turned several buyers away but welcomed the
boy, remembering the years of calls and attempts to buy the car. A price
was agreed upon and the Charger finally came home.
Throughout the early 1990s, the car was shown in its unrestored state while
awaiting its turn to be rebuilt. This thing was a monster on the show
circuit. Luckily we have some photos as proof!
While going through the car, he located TWO broadcast sheets that were
found fully intact.
It showed a build date of June 18th, 1971 -- nearly 2 weeks after any other
HEMI car on record. After months of research, the boy was proven correct
for believing there was something special about the car back in 1978. It
was the final HEMI car ever produced.
Though there were already plans to restore the Charger, this new
information upped the ante considerably. The owner got in touch with the
team at RKM Performance Center and, together, it was decided to go all in.

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/72bwsom
This lights-out 1955 Chevrolet 210 combines a fire-breathing 502 big block,
with substantial suspension upgrades, a custom leather interior and
stunning exterior paint to create a killer combination of style and all-out
Go ahead and spend a few minutes studying the body on this awesome 1955 210
coupe and see if you can pick out all its detail. For starters, you'll see
near-flawless prep and careful assembly from every angle. Next you'll find
an expertly applied paint job which uses vivid Burnt Orange and smooth
Cameo Beige urethane to stellar effect by duplicating the car's factory
two-tone pattern. And last but certainly not least you'll discover crisp
finishing work, like razor-sharp eyebrows that stretch over its front
fenders and tight beads at the edges of those fenders, which provide the
kind of solid presence that's only found on carefully crafted old school
By now it's probably pretty obvious this Chevy 210 was built to be seen;
but thanks to the 502 cubic inch Chevrolet V8 under its domed hood, that
might be easier said than done. And it's a crying shame too, because
there's so much chrome under here it's almost like they took a completely
assembled big block and dipped it whole. At the top of the engine, a
polished aluminum air cleaner funnels wind from a re-usable filter element
into two Burnt Orange, Carter Competition Series 4-barrel carburetors that
are complete with a custom chrome fuel regulator, two Marshall fuel
pressure gauges and a Professional Products Powerflow fuel filter. Below
those carburetors, a chrome intake props an aftermarket HEI distributor,
which sends spark across billet wire looms via red Taylor performance plug
wires, opposite a chrome thermostat housing that's attached to one of two
corrugated chrome hoses. And at the sides of that intake, pristine chrome
valve covers hang polished breathers over ceramic coated, long tube
headers. In front of the block, fresh V-belts spin a chrome alternator, a
chrome power steering pump, a chrome AC compressor and a polished water
pump behind a nice combination of chrome and billet pulleys. And in front
of those V-belts a polished aluminum radiator, which is equipped with two
quick spinning puller fans, a polished overflow tank and a polished bowtie
cap, is centered between a polished core support, a polished AC condenser,
and two chrome horns.
Throwing all the big 502's power to the pavement is a bulletproof 4-speed
automatic transmission which is marked by crisp shifts and impressive low
gear acceleration. Up front, a traditional independent suspension, which
features an upfitted sway bar and leak-free power steering, provides modern
car handling and easy turning. Out back, a virtually indestructible 10 bolt
rear end hangs between familiar leaf springs, a second upfitted sway bar,
Caltrac's style traction bars, and fully functional air shocks. And at each
front corner, a big disc brake sits behind a 15 inch American Racing Torq
Thrust II wheel and a 205/70 Michelin Radial Plus tire. And at each back
corner, a stout drum brake sits behind a 15 inch American Racing Torq
Thrust II wheel and a 225/70 Michelin X-One tire.
Climb inside this fully restored 210 and you'll find a completely custom
interior which features dramatic colors and an unbeatable combination of
classic trim and modern convenience. Those big, overstuffed thrones, which
began life in an Impala, now wear glove soft tan leather covers. Matching
door panels were sculpted and custom stitched, decorated with billet
aluminum handles and chrome power window switches, then neatly integrated
into Burnt Orange door toppers. And overhead there's a polished rearview
mirror and a custom leather headliner. At the front of the car, a Burnt
Orange dash hangs pristine bowtie branded stainless, which is complete with
both a digital clock and a digital gauge pod, above vents for the car's ice
cold air conditioning system. And in front of the driver, an attractive
aluminum steering wheel spins a thick black rim around a chrome and body
matched tilt steering column that's complete with a full set of billet

132827 / 2005 Ford Thunderbird 50th Anniversary
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/75damgl
If you've always wanted to cruise the streets in style AND enjoy a level of
luxury and dependability that can only be found in a showroom fresh modern
car, this slick Thunderbird is exactly what you've been looking for!
The Thunderbird came to life in 1954 as a sensational 1955 production car
which fired imaginations and became an instant classic. In 1999, Ford
decided it would honor the original car by building a new model that would
turn just as many heads; and this generation, affectionately dubbed the
'retrobird', was rolling down the production line within two years. To be
honest, it's pretty difficult to describe a car like this pristine T-bird.
You kinda just want to say "imagine what it would be like to find one that
hasn't been driven" because that's how nice the car really is. It was
obviously pampered and exceptionally well cared for as its 50th Anniversary
exclusive Cashmere paint looks just as good as it did when the car rolled
out of a Ford showroom. And from its excellent shine to its dent and
chip-free composite panels it's probably one of the nicest 2005
Thunderbirds on the planet.
Power for this 2005 'bird comes from a 3.9 liter 32 valve DOHC V8 which was
developed by former Ford subsidiary Jaguar and code named the AJ35. The
Ford specific AJ35, which was manufactured here in America, utilizes a
two-state variable valve timing system, fracture-split forged powder metal
connecting rods, a special one-piece cast camshaft and reinforced plastic
intake manifold to create 280 horsepower and 286 lb./ft.
of torque. Aesthetically, the entire engine is hidden under an attractive
plastic shroud which trades a teal inlayed Thunderbird logo and a chrome
"V8" emblem for a traditional view of working bits. However, you can still
plainly see how well maintained everything is, from the cars sparkling
clean inner fenders, to its non-yellowed master cylinder.
In the late 90s and early 00s Ford developed one global rear wheel drive
platform, codenamed DEW, which was to underpin everything from select
Jaguars to the fifth generation Mustang. Those competent roots supply
this awesome Thunderbird with a sophisticated independent front and rear
Macpherson strut suspension which mixes aluminum control arms with a host
of other weight saving techniques to create a smooth ride and composed road
manners. Behind the engine, a 5-speed automatic transmission sends power to
a fresh 8 inch Ford rear end with sporty 3.58 gears. And at the corners of
the car, four wheel disc brakes ride behind high class 17 inch machine
finished wheels which spin body-matched Thunderbird center caps inside of
235/50 Michelin Pilot radials.
Ford began the 21st century by producing some of the more impressive and
detail oriented interior designs to ever hit the market, and the 50th
Anniversary exclusive tri-tone cockpit in this pristine Thunderbird is one
of their best designs. The driver and passenger are treated with heated,
full-power Cashmere leather seats which have been color-matched to the
exterior paint and feature embossed 50th Anniversary headrest logos. Below
the seats, day-one fresh carpet is protected by thick floor mats and
bordered by cool Thunderbird branded sill plates. And at the sides of the
seats, winged black, white and Cashmere door panels hold great looking
metal trim above controls for both the power windows and power door locks.
At the front of the car, a highly detailed dash props Turquoise tipped
needles in front of satin finished and chrome trimmed gauges; and a 6 disc
in-dash CD changer rides next to attractive metal trim and a glove box
mounted commemorative plaque. Below the dash, a great looking console holds
a dual zone climate control system and a Cashmere topped shift knob in
front of a leather stitched console and a sculpted waterfall back panel.
Like their predecessors, these cars have built a legacy of cruising, seeing
and being seen, showing up in style and looking fantastic! Call, click or
