The last time we checked in on the Street Rodder 40 Ford build, the crew at Hollywood Hot Rods was putting the final touches on the car and tuning the engine.
Recently Street Rodder debuted the car at the Hollywood Hot Rods headquarters in Burbank, CA. They kept the guests baited by keeping the car covered up until after Troy Ladd and the SR crew said a few words. We were lucky enough to get a few behind-the-scenes shots of the event.
All in all the car came out great and the roof chop that Troy and his crew performed with the help of Eastwood Metal Fabrication Tools looked spot-on. The metallic paint was flawless and the Ford Racing V8 sounded fantastic through those individual throttle bodies!
Jerry Dixey is a lucky man and by now is already cruising the west coast in the Ford on the first legs of the 2012 Street Rodder Road Tour. Make sure you watch this space for full coverage as Eastwood and Street Rodder kick off the East Coast leg of the Road Tour at the annual Eastwood Summer Classic on July 14th! If you’re local make sure you cruise out and see some of the best classic cars in the Mid-Atlantic and catch some great deals on Eastwood products!
