Historic Reference and Design Inspiration
Ford 1930s Model A Closed Cab Pickup – Henry Ford may be best remembered for the Model T, also known as the Tin Lizzie, but the Model A was Ford?s second great success. Everyone was excited to see what would be next from Ford and he did not disappoint. He did a few different body styles and one was this closed cab pickup, which was available in seven different colors. He upgraded the brakes and the engine, getting this up to 60 mph. These trucks are difficult to find restored to the original, but they have a strong following of collectors.
Chevrolet 1957 Bel Air – One of the most popular classics of all time, when the 1957 Bel Air was originally released it wasn?t as popular as Chevy had hoped. It became one of the most popular used cars in the 60s and 70s and was a favorite among drag racers because of its lighter weight compared to newer cars. The 1957 Chevy?s had to have a restriction in NASCAR racing until the 1970s because with the addition of the V-8 engine, they consistently won every race. Now as a collector?s item, these cars increase in value every year.
1918 Dodge Brothers T Bucket – John & Horace Dodge learned the art of machining by learning at their father?s machine shop. The started a bicycle plant first then, after selling that company, started working in the auto business making engines for other automotive companies and then exclusively for Ford making not just engines, but all the mechanical components for the Model T. After fighting with Henry Ford for years over costs, they decided to make their own car and quickly became the second largest automaker. Hot Rod enthusiasts love to take these early cars and modify them into stellar show and racing pieces. Though Dodge Brothers T Buckets are rare, there are those who have taken it upon themselves to combine the Dodge and Ford classics into fantastic pieces of running, working art.
