Dwayne Peace, of Tyler, TX, took home the coveted Ridler award for his ’55 Thunderbird that was built by Torq’d Design Lab in Tyler, and Greening Auto Company out of Nashville. The build began at Torq’d under the direction of Jonathan and Matt Peace (sons of the owner) and completed with Greening’s applying the Glasurit paint and fabbing many of the one-off parts. The engine is a twin-blown (Banks) 383 with Dart heads and block, which is backed to a Bowler 4L60E trans. The interior was a combination effort between Torq’d Design Lab and Paul Atkins Interiors while the brightwork was handled by the Ridler-proven shop of Advance Plating.
