Mike Warn of Wilsonville, Oregon takes home the coveted Ridler award for his 1960 Rambler complete with Ferrari power.
The hit of this years Detroit Autorama has to be the '60 Rambler with Ferrari power built by Tim Diver of Divers Street Rods out of Sultan, Washington. The Ferrari red (what else is mixed using PPG Ferrari Rosso Corsa Red) powered Rambler is based on an Art Morrison chassis modified by Divers utilizing a 101 inch wheelbase with Ferrari front and rear suspension and a 2002 Ferrari Modena 360 engine that displaces 3.6L for 405 horsepower which includes the same Modena 6-speed transaxle. Morrison steering is used with the Ferrari unequal wishbone with QA1 shocks in front and similar setup in the back.
The wheels are one-offs with the fronts measuring 18 x 8 1/2 and the rears coming in at 20 x 10 all wrapped with Pirelli rubber. The P-0 tires are 225/35/18 in front and P-0 295/30/20 in back.
The interior fell to the stitch master Scott Divers (Tim's brother) from S Divers Industrial Design. The gauges are MoTeC, steering wheel is one off from Divers Street Rods, steering column is Speedway, while the interior mirror is another Divers product.
The bodywork was handled by Shawn McNally, Jim Lykken, Russ Divers of DSR while the spray work fell to Shawn and Jim.
