The Hollywood Hot Rods–built Road Tour ’40 Ford featuring a Dennis Carpenter Ford Restoration Parts body, Ford Racing Coyote V-8, and a Fatman chassis with Billet Vintiques wheels was deemed a hit by all who saw the PPG copper-painted hot rod.

The “first” of the reproduction ’55 Chevy post sedans was unveiled during the Nats. The bodies are assembled by Real Deal Steel and exclusively distributed by Woody’s Hot Rodz. Shown are Editor Brennan and Woody’s Chris Sondles with the car that is a STREET RODDER project, “Totally Gassed”.

Project Shop Truck made its debut: the Hot Rods by Dean–built ’47 Chevy body from Chevs of the 40’s rests on a Fatman chassis with a Chevrolet Performance LS327 and TCI Automotive tranny.
