Selling my truck

Things change and time doesn’t stand still for anyone. I have made the decision to sell of the Green truck. Let someone else enjoy it for a while.

I posted it in a Craigslist.com advertisement. If you may be interested, hit me up here or on the other links provided.

List of details:

Lower arms are tube with Energy Suspension polyurethane bushings, MOOG ball joints, TRW Coil springs (Full height) with plenty of room to lay frame if you were to change to air bags.

These were built by Rally America and have 49-50 Ford 16″ wheel centers with 16-6″ wheel bands and the rear is 53-54 Ford wheel centers with 8″ wheel bands. Very nice chrome, have a bad set of Riken tires on the front that need to be replaced. The rears have Nitto 555R 275/65-15 tires. Both sets of wheels are included.

Turbos are Powermaster T70 and wastegates are TiAl 44mm and currently running 15# of boost. Under 2800 RPM drives like a normal rowdy Big Block, past that you better be ready. The rest of the exhaust system is 3″ and has Magnaflow mufflers. Sounds healthy but not overly loud.
  • Drivetrain. Transmission is a Tremec 3350 TKO Five Speed with the forward shifter installed. Driveshaft is a 4″ aluminum piece with 1350 U-joints on both ends. Rear axle is a stock housing 9″ to the truck, but is girdled and has a Strange Aluminum carrier with Daytona style pinion carrier. Strange 3.50 gear set on a Detroit True Trac differential.

Front opening hood, shaved drip rails and rounded door corners. Dash has filled glove box and ash tray. Fuel filler and stake pockets filled. Body seams welded and filled. Paint is old, it is in need of a respray at this point. It’s House of Kolor Organic Green candy over Orion Silver base with touches of heavy sliver flake.
  • Interior, ’64 Thunderbird seats on custom platforms. Center console is actually the subwoofer box and a custom fabricated arm rest to disguise it. Arm rest flips up for storage and charging ports. Has a Kicker 3 channel amp, custom fabricated aluminum kick panel pods with Polk coaxial speakers. No head unit, just use an MP3 Player or if your phone still has a headphone jack, plug in and enjoy. Flaming River polished Stainless Steel Steering column and Moon metalflake steering wheel. Vintage Air Gen III 4 Vent AC/Heat/Defrost tucked up under the dash.

This is by no means a show winner, it gets used regularly. Reliable and road trip worth. Very comfortable to drive long distance, handles very well.

 

LA Roadster Show 2017

We are in preparations to be at the 2017 LA Roadster show in Pomona, CA at the Fairplex on June 17-18th (Fathers Day weekend) in two locations this year. We will have our indoor booth again this year, but will also have a spot out in the swap area.

So far we plan on bringing out three ’32 frames with our full X members with show pricing. One will be pinched for 28/29 Model A use. We will also have our accessory K-member legs, stock style brake pedal sets and other bolt on chassis parts.

If you want to pre-order any of the product and have us deliver at the show, give us a call @ 866-553-8996

 

LA Roadster Show 2016

It’s almost upon us. This June 18 and 19th, Father’s Day weekend, is the 52nd Anniversary Roadster Show and we will be inside building 4 for the first time!

In years past we were in the Swap Meet area but changes over the last few years has made it difficult for us to set up there. That and we were bringing out the used goodies you guys could use. Well this year, it’s all new stuff. We are bringing ’32 Ford stuff and working on a few new products. I will have two frames ready to go, full knock down at a Roadster Show special price.

 

Look for us in Building 4 spaces SAA 26 and 27

Quick hits from around the shop

LA Roadster Show 2015, We Were There!

What a show. The heat had to be a factor in the low turn out. That and the guys that go in first roped off over 90% of the spaces, leaving many swappers to turn around and go home. I spoke to two guys that demanded their $70.00 back because there were no available spaces. Even on Saturday a large percentage of the “saved” spaces were still empty with yellow tape and cones and maybe a lawn chair and a small pile of scrap metal to guard the space. I cannot see this happening for much longer before they the LA Roadster guys start having to do assigned spaces or at least check that the guys that paid for one spot only have one spot and so forth.

We set up with Hotrod Ron and had a good selection of stuff. The reception to our new fully bolt together ’32 frame was encouraging. The SBC engine saddle was the hit of the show! Now I’m going to have to put them into the store. Look for those items in the near future, but if you’re impatient you can always give me a call.

IMG_20150619_135942We talked with several satisfied customers and even saw Tim Thompson and his wonderful ’32 3W with the first mail ordered Full-X member installed. Of course Dr Marvelus and I had to take the opportunity for a shot of us all together. 2015-06-19 13.55.22

It’s summer time and we are still at it. More new products are on the way.

2015 LA Roadster Show, we will be there!

Next weekend is one of the coolest show/swaps in the country, held in Pomona California for Fathers day weekend. I have been attending this show since the 70’s as a kid and now as a vendor in the swap meet. We will be bringing out our Full-X members, Brake pedal assemblies, wish bone mounts and other goodies as well as some great stuff to swap. Stop on by, we will be in the swap area.

Customer ride for sale: 1930 Plymouth Rat

Our bud Rick is selling his car and moving to Thailand, yes that place. We saved this rat’s nest from a sketchy death machine into a usable, daily driven art piece. I figured a post was due to give him a hand in exposing his sale, and interesting car from a good guy. IMG_20121210_163343
