Ride of the Week|March 27th
Ken Taylor's 66' Mustang
Ken brought us this 66 Mustang and asked we handle just a couple things on it before we shipped it back to him so he could finish it off.
It involved us putting in a Heidts front and rear suspension along with almost every suspension add on Heidts manufactures. We also tucked a Johns Industries 9" Ford rear end in there for good measure.
Ken got her home and finished this bad boy up. Good times!
Ride of the Week|March 20th
Tom Johnston's Cab Over
Tom brought us this Ford Cab Over with a 350 Chevy and 350 Transmission powering it. This truck also had a Toyota booster and master cylinder. Suffice it to say this wasn't working for Tom. He asked us to get er going with DIESEL POWER.
We swapped in a 07' Chevy Duramax Diesel with Allison 6 Speed Tranny.
All of this was sitting on a suburban chassis so we back halfed it and fabricated a new rear frame half.
This beauty cab over also features a 9" Ford rear end from Johns Industries, Inc., Strange 35 Spline Detroit Locker, new leaf springs from Detroit Springs, Griffin Thermal Products radiator, Vintage Air, Inc. AC and heat, RideTech suspension system, a custom fabricated intercooler and custom fuel tank.
Those of you on the Hot Rod Power Tour 2017 will be sure to see Tom burning up the road!
Ride of the Week|March 13th
Mr. Brown's 34'
Something a little different than our typical Ride of the Week. We wanted to showcase the hotrods that we get to whatever stage is needed before sending back with our client.
In this particular hotrod, we were asked to get it to the point of being a roller to which, Mr. Brown could finish it off himself. We were very happy to oblige.
This car features a Street Rods by Michael chassis with a Johns Industries, Inc. 9" Ford rear, Pete and Jake's Hot Rod Parts rear suspension, Heidts Hot Rod & Muscle Car Parts super ride front suspension, a BeBops 34' body, a Griffin Thermal Products radiator, and American torque thrusts on BFGoodrich Tires
All in all, we got the job done and had another satisfied customer.
Ride of the Week|March 6th
Loran Ashburner's 40' Packard
This sexy thing came to us ready for some serious love. We stripped her right down to bare metal and quickly realized we were in for some work. Parts were hard if not impossible to find so we ended up fabricating everything in house.
She features a brand new LS4 motor with a 4L80e Transmission, a Johns Industries, Inc. 9" ford rear end, Vintage Air, Inc. heat and ac, Lokar accessories, and a RideTech suspension on a custom built frame by my crew here at Street Rods by Michael, Inc.
Some of the finer details are the custom built gauges by our friends at Classic Instruments, custom built wheels by the Wheel Smith, Ididit steering column, and a LaCarra Steering wheel.
All the chrome work was done by Advanced Plating and the paint was a custom concocted PPG candy red.
This cruising down the road, looks IMPRESSIVE.
