The 1928 Ford Roadster Streetrod is a great American classic, and this one takes it to heart by being a true tribute to American heroes
So while you’ll love the growling V8 power, you’ll also be stopping at more places to make sure everyone can appreciate this honor.
The military aircraft insignia on the sides of this roadster is an instant giveaway that it’s something special. Weaponry seems like a full theme here with a shotgun air scoop, battleship gray wheels, and missile side steps. Of course, the best parts of the fighting spirit are the men and women of the armed services. So the fiberglass body is fully wrapped to look like a battle-tested fighter plane, and then veterans were invited to sign it. Since this is a wrap, the theme can be changed easily, but quite frankly, this seems like a tradition worth continuing. More than just patriotic, there are cool details, like the ’34 Ford style grille, clear tri-bar headlights with integrated turn signal, a one-piece windshield, and the clean looks of a sleek build.
The interior is clean and durable, simple, and durable, which is nice on a roadster. You have performance pieces like the sports steering wheel, essential gauges, a column-mounted tach, and a B&M floor shifter. A touch of the military feeling returns with the exterior wrap on the dash, and the safety toggle switches on the dash feel like you’re arming the roadster before hitting the road.
A roadster like this loves to show off the motor. Not only do you have the twin “shotgun” air intake, but also the butterfly valves have been replaced by bullet casings. This has the proper power of a street machine with a 350 cubic-inch crate V8. It has been upgraded with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, a Weiand intake, and headers feeding into a growling set of side pipes. There are also good supporting components like an HEI distributor and an aluminum radiator w/electric fans. There’s also a three-speed automatic transmission, front disc brakes, and a reinforced ladder bar rear with adjustable coilovers.
