This is one of if not the best built real steel hot rods I have seen. The attention to detail is exceptional. The body is a chopped 3″ 1930 Ford coupe and is mounted on an aftermarket 1932 Ford chassis with an original 18dash* vin number hence the car is titled as a 1932 Ford with that vin. The vast majority of this masterpiece is hand made by Peter, a real craftsman over a 10-12 year period with a very extensive group of posts describing this construction on the HAMB. You can access these posts under the category Clark Coupe Build and actually watch this car being built. The car is traditional in most respects with the suspension being transverse spring front and rear with tube shocks. Front axle is an A dropped by Okie Joe, one of the best in the business, and uses 1938 spindles, 53-56 F100 brakes with 1966 shoes and adjusters. Engine is a newly built .040 over 1956 324 Olds with #10 heads (1.94/1.6 stainless valves), 270 degree camshaft all built by the well known Tim McMaster at Hanford Auto in CA. Triple carbs are correct GM units with new bases and all other parts from Charlie Price at Vintage Speed along with their stainless fuel lines. The transmission branches out from traditional a bit in that it is a 1988 Camaro T5 with S10 tail and a Ford top plate with neutral safety switch. Shifter is macine art from KatoKings on the HAMB. Rear is a early Bronco 9″ with TracLoc and new 3.55 gear. This makes all four wheels 5×5.5 bolt pattern. The dash is a work of art in itself. It is a narrowed 1951 Plymouth Cranbrook all restored with gauges internally being 80s’ Camaro with corresponding senders. Original ammeter is now a voltmeter with correct face for that. Fuel tank is a Tanks U3 16 gal. and uses a Honda Airtex E8269H pump with a primer button in the trunk. The engine has an oil pressure switch which only allows the pump to function when it detects oil pressure. Although the body is 30 A it now has a 32 cowl vent and roll down rear window. Wiring is nicely done with fuse panel easily accessible under the dash. Radiator is correct Walker, seat is nicely installed mini-van and the engine is supported by four biscuit type mounts with another on the tail of the T5. Split wishbones in front with rear supported by Pete and Jakes bars. Look at the exhaust, headers and complete exhaust made by hand, another work of art along with the floors, inspection panels and pedals. I firmly believe you cannot buy a better built hot rod on the planet.
