This 1935 Dodge Sedan is the right place to start when comes to a street machine build.
After all, the idea is to have a custom presentation, and so it’s great to use something seldom-seen as a base. Plus, with the stylish A/C interior and proper Mopar V8 power under the hood, you know you’re looking at a full build with plenty of distinction.
These pre-war Dodges had some terrific curves, especially in the fenders, hood, and the trunk-back style of this two-door sedan. And the metallic shine in the green paint likes to really highlight that style. The value price leaves room in the budget if you want to update to one of those ultra-bright colors of other street machines. But we already like it for the deep green that makes a nice contrast to the bright headlights and waterfall grille. This build loves to have modern flair in its details, like the color-matched bumpers, sport side mirrors, and flush-mounted gas filler and taillights. And it really has an ideal street machine stance. Those polished Cragar SS wheels are staggered 14/15 inches front rear, the front end is lowered, and those whitewalls hide a larger set of rear tires. The result is a forward lean-in look that’s pure street machine.
The tan tweed interior is a good look against the exterior dark green. You can easily tell this is a full custom setup, and the more you look, the more you see thoughtful details that you don’t find in other custom builds. The seats are a good example. The rear ones offer terrific bolstering from a sculpted bucket-like setup. And not only does the front have their own high-back buckets, but also they are on swivel mounts to really make it easy to get inside. There are well-integrated upgrades, like the R134a air conditioning system mounded under the dash. Plus, the AM/FM/CD stereo w/Bluetooth is mounted in its own overhead console. This one is built to be a great driver with the upgraded Lecarra steering wheel on a tilt column, cruise control, a Lokar floor shifter, and a dash full of Classic Instruments gauges.
This is a true classic Mopar machine, and so you’ll proudly lift the hood to show of proper Mopar power. It’s a mighty 360 cubic-inch Magnum V8. It’s built with a mild cam, Weiand intake, and topped with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. And shorty headers add power while feeding the right V8 tune to the glasspack-style dual exhaust. As you dig deeper you’ll see more evidence of how this was built with real driving in mind, including an electric fan and a separate trans cooler. The front suspension is now an upgrade independent unit, and the rear diff is now a stout Ford 9-inch. Plus, there’s a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with front discs, so this Dodge knows how to cruise in comfort.
