Among The World-Class Cars at the Pacific Coast Dream Machines Show
Peter Georgeades worked with Cambra Speed Shop to turn a stock coupe into a custom show rod masterpiece.
He has won awards all over the place with this beauty and Peter will be bringing it to this year's Pacific Coast Dream Machines Show, Sunday, April 28 at Half Moon Bay Airport.
The four-banger has been replaced with a 383 stroker Chevy small-block with a 6-71 blower and triple Rochester carbs.
Body mods include a 4-1/2-inch chop, bobbed rearend, and raised wheelwells, plus a sweet candy red panel paintjob.
Wheelsmith contributed the 15-inch chrome reverse wheels, wrapped in bias-ply skinnies and grooved slicks.
Handmade race bucket seats and Classic Instruments gauges in a custom dash set apart the interior.
A Pinkee’s Rod Shop chassis carries the Model A.
"Model A Fords were inexpensive and easy to ‘soup up’ so they were often converted and customized for every type of racing", said Georgeades of Newark CA.
"This example is inspired by early 60s drag racing style Hot Rod show car. It is powered by a 383 ci Chevrolet V8 engine equipped with a 671 Blower. The roof has been chopped 4.5 inches, the far wall pushed back, the rear bobbed, and the rear wheels lifted to match the contour of the rear tire. Its handmade dash incorporates a 1959 Chevrolet Impala gauge cluster.”
