Yes, we like period hot-rods too. We like their ingenuity and their simplicity. So, we can’t stand billet aluminium, digital gauges or $20,000 paint jobs on these cars. This particular car is said to have a known history since it left the factory.
The seller says also that the car is rock solid and completely original with the exception of the engine cases which have been replaced with a factory Ford crate engine, which is still a flathead.
The ratty look of the interiors vouches for how original and old they are, along with the original dashboard and a proper 8-ball as shift lever knob. All these things, along with the big tires and the flat black paint, show well how a true hot rod is supposed to be. Find it for sale at $29,500 here in New Hampshire.
