Cheap Hot Rods, Hot Rods do not need to be EXPENSIVE
Hot rods do not need to be expensive. It just depends on how resourceful you can be. One web site viewer, Rick has a very nice ride and this is what Rick’s ride is all about:
All steel ’29 chopped five window coupe w/6″ firewall recess
454 howards Roller w/2×4 Tunnel Ram and Dual Quad Holleys
TH350 trans w/shift kit and B&M shifter
9″ Ford rear w/4.11′s
Hugger Orange paint w/custom flamejob
Staggered Weld Draglites
I actually got her on a small series of trades on Craigslist, starting off with a $500 minitruck I picked up at a local auction.
Total investment, only $5000
She needs a few minor details (radiator shell, spreader bar, fuel gauge sending unit, oil pressure gauge, etc.), but she’s otherwise pretty much complete.
Here is a video on YouTube of this very nice but inexpensive ride:
