Custom-built specially for the Elkhart Collection, this unique street rod was constructed by the famed Brizio Street Rods of South San Francisco, California. It utilizes a custom boxed frame equipped with polished Kugel independent front and rear suspension, coil-over shocks, rack-and-pinion steering, and chromed Wilwood 11-inch disc brake assemblies. Ample motivation is provided by a 345 bhp V-8 from a 2017 Ford Mustang Boss 302 with Edelbrock aluminum intake and four-barrel carburetor mated to a five-speed Tremec gearbox and sending its power to a Kugel 3.7 9-inch Ford rear axle.
The body is an innovative all-steel unit built using modern OEM manufacturing processes by the American Speed Company of Plymouth, Michigan. It is completed with a stamped steel grille shell, an aluminum hood, and “chopped” windshield frame and convertible top bows, the latter covered by a custom-fit Haartz Stayfast top. The exceptional paint job was performed by Darryl Hollenbeck’s Vintage Color Studio in House of Kolor McLaren Dark Tangerine Kandy, with the chassis smoothed and finished to match. Sid Chavers finished the interior with fully custom door panels and seats upholstered in caramel leather, accented by Classic instruments and a subtle Vintage Air air-conditioning system. Only the best trim details and accessories were sourced throughout for a cohesive design that is truly spectacular.
This may be the only true street rod in the Elkhart Collection, but in its quality of design, construction, and presentation, it is absolutely faithful to the standard set by its brethren in the stable. It is a “best of its kind” custom, finished and maintained to the highest standard and built with no expense spared.
