1930 Ford Model A Hot Rod at the V8 Speed and Resto Shop

This cool 1930 Ford Model A Hot Rod belongs to a friend of ours, who purchased it mostly the way you see it in the intial photos.   He brought it to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop to have some leather bomber seat pads and door interior panels made, as well as a custom insert for the roof.    It's powered by a 1970 Chevrolet 350 fed by 6 2-barrel carbs, and is shifted by a set of Hurst Lightning Rod shifters!   It's a fun ride!

1947 Lincoln Pinstriping at V8 Speed & Resto Shop

 

We had a cool 1947 Lincoln street rod roll into the shop recently in search of an A/C system leak fix, and we ended up adding some cream and red old-school pin stripes to break up the acres of maroon paint.    Our in-house painter J.J. handled the task with ease, putting his steady hand, squirrel-hair brush, and One Shot paints to add some style to this classic ride.      Contact us at the V8 Speed & Resto Shop for striping on your ride!   Click Read More to see the action!
