In all my years of studying hot rods, I can’t say that I’ve once seen somebody combine the nose from a ‘38 Ford DeLuxe with a fenderless roadster body, as done with this rod. Elephant seal looks aside, that is the kind of junkyard parts-mixing you’d see in an early hot rod. We’d love to know more about who built this and when. From the seller’s description:
The front end is a 1938 Ford standard track nose with hand formed metal sides. The hood back to the stretched 1928 Ford cowl into a Dodge touring car tub finished with a 1925 Ford Model T rear with a hand formed roll pan and side with Bonneville louvers. Under the hood is a Chevy 350ci V8 with 202 double hump heads original Edelbrock intake with 3 Rochester 2G’s Mallory dual point aluminum Corvette valve covers aluminum radiator and spent fuel comes out hand built Lake style headers. The power goes to the ground via a TH350 automatic transmission into a quick change rear end. Inside is new leather interior with matching carpet and marine grade tonneau cover with stainless steel snaps. The original cowl dash with classic gauges still remain. The front suspension is made up of an original 1934 Ford axle held in place with a pair of 1947 dogleg wishbones with a spring mounted off the bones to lower the car. The rear suspension is a narrowed Model T spring and modified split wishbones. Custom built .188 wall 2×4 frame that tapers in the front and has a kick in the rear all powder coated. Rolling stock consists of early Chysler artilleries with Ford center covers with 475’s up front and 650’s out back. Original E&J headlights modified to use a modern halogen bulb.
