1939 Ford Roadster Imagine a Hot Rodded car that has more unique lines than the original, is maintenance free fiberglass, allows the builder to put any engine within its confines they want, and has the reliability of any production car. A driver friendly car that is uniquely the builders and none other like it. Hey WAKE UP!! We have a car for you!! All sourced from Coast to Coast body and chassis to start, bathe it in Indy Yellow Pearl, add in some muscle under the hood, C5 corvette suspension with air ride added, custom wheels, a pop off soft top and a fully complemented interior all clad in leather, and you will be the belle of the ball. Not to mention a feature write up in Street Rodder magazine, theres nothing sour going on with this lemon beauty. Exterior All fiberglass smoothed over and sanded to perfection, then bathed in PPG Indy Yellow Pearl paint, this customized body has been chopped and lowered. Teardrop headlights, a stylized V grille complete with horizontal ribs, a smoothed, pancaked and beaked hood, shaped doors and a soft top, and this could be your own personal lemondrop...car. No bumpers to interfere with the lines of the front and rear and cleanly inserted teardrop tail lamps on back with twin exhaust tips right in the center, all accented by the long sweeping tail, trunk lid, and pointed rear fenders. Lets throw in some snazzy running boards down low, add a black canvas soft top which is removable, and has a plastic rear window, and our eyes are juiced with excitement. And lest we forget, 17-inch polished Corvette Z06 wheels for the front, and 18 inchers for the rear, and it is go and show time! Interior A remotely popped swing of the suicide doors which are covered in Baltic Blue leather with yellow accenting along with a billet aluminum insert to hold the blue speaker and tweeter and is emulated by the leather buckets courtesy of a Mazda Miata and we are in a special interior. Between the seats is a custom brushed aluminum console that runs wild, and houses the Lokar shifter, Vintage Air and heat, power window toggles and 4 independent toggles for the air ride. Nice clean black face gauges with white numbering and red hash marks show off within a yellow fielded dash front. All very clean and simple design with chrome and black air vents in the round, and clean factory like lines for extra accenting. Blue carpeting is covering the floor, and the underside of the top is also nice. The trunk is also custom covered in blue leather with orange accents with the iconic Corvette crossed flags. Drivetrain 5.7 Liters of 1998 Corvette LS1 power resides under the yellow hood. This is dressed to the nines with Indy Yellow Pearl covers that accents the black engine just perfectly and for a little bling, a polished cold air intake has been added for the inhale. On the back is a Tremec T56 6-speed manual transmission which sends power through the 98 Corvette rear axle with 3.42 gears to drive the rear fatties, and smoke em if ya got em applies here. SPAL cooling fans are on to keep this fuel injected mill nice and cool. Undercarriage All wonderfully clean, custom and near perfect underside showing off the Coast to Coast Chassis. Modified independent Corvette front suspension is showing, and on back is a modified Corvette independent arrangement. The transverse leaf springs have been removed from this suspension and now an Air Ride Technologies Shockwave air ride system provides the infinitely adjustable ride. Power disc brakes are within the ZO6 wheels all around with Baer 13 brakes being up front and LS1 headers feed 2.5 Flowmaster exhaust which works its way rearward under the chassis. Drive-Ability Low and slow or fast and loose, this car offers up both options. It starts right up and runs just fab, with a rumbling cruise, and tight ride. The interior is comfy and all functional on the power conveniences, and the 6-speed manual shifted smoothly. Power disc brakes brought this sunkist lemon to an abrupt halt. Lets see, looks the part, runs like a clock, PPG paint, a Street Rodder magazine feature and a great rod, how about taking the role of the Lemon Drop Kid less the swindling? Eat your heart out Bob Hope!
