The Street Rod scene is popular for a bunch of good reasons. You get vintage character on the outside and modern comforts on the inside. Add in some current tech for performance, dress it up for the show, and you have a car you can join your friends with on cruise nights and collect a few trophies for the display case along the way.
This '36 cuts a classic line from tall chrome grill perched on the front of a narrow, piano hinged hood to the gentle curve of the trunk as it flows gently down toward the ground. A Chevrolet badge graces the center of that grill and on top is a hood ornament that leads the way as you fly down the road. Individual headlights are perched on either side of the hood just over the separate fenders, which are another charming feature of 1930s styling. The tall cab of the car cuts a smooth line up and over the roof and then down over the trunk which provides lots of interior and luggage space. Torch Red paint catches the light reflecting it back nicely along all those curves and also highlights the chrome of the door handles, headlights and grill nicely. A wide black running board connects the front and rear fenders and custom taillights keep the look clean.
Open the door and you will find a Tan and Red interior that compliments the vintage looks of the outside with stunning custom touches and modern conveniences on the inside. The billet steering wheel is almost certain to grab your attention first. It is quite a work of art and sure to start some conversations at the shows. It sits on a column that tilts with a shifter for the automatic transmission and stalk for the cruise control. Behind it is a chrome panel with Dolphin gauges set into it to keep track of speed and critical engine functions. Along the bottom of the dash are controls for the A/C system that will keep you cool on those hot summer days and a Kenwood stereo with speakers mounted in all corners of the cabin for your listening pleasure. Bucket seats are comfortable and beautiful covered in leather with a textured seating surfaces and smooth side bolsters. A full tan headliner and tan carpeting complete the look of this interior nicely.
Raising up the sides of a piano hinged hood is fun in itself, and when you do, you get a clear view of the eye candy inside from both sides. The Z28 Camaro motor set down in this engine bay is dressed for the show with chrome valve covers, air topper, and accessories like the brake master cylinder and booster, alternator and A/C compressor that shine bright and reflect off the polished paint of the firewall and underside of the hood. It all looks awesome! The chromed shorty headers have some wonderful color to them that comes from pumping out some horsepower and the exhaust has a nice rumbling sound to it. An aluminum radiator with an electric fan keeps the temps under control and the power flows back through a 4-speed automatic trans to the back wheels mounted on leaf springs. Power rack and pinion steering makes this car handle well and power front disc brakes provide great stopping ability. The rubber meets the road through 205/70R15 tires mounted on chrome 5-spoke alloy wheels.
Vintage good looks. Modern tech for comfort and performance and lots of chrome dressing up the engine! Come on down and check out this sweet ride out.
