The late Steve Chase added flames and 'striping to the black acrylic enamel shot by Mock 40 years ago. The '53 Cadillac wire wheels were distinctive then, and still are. Mock was excited to have his car photographed for the cover of STREET RODDER, but artist Dave Bell's cartoon illustration of the '40 may have been a greater honor. Sue Mock, Dave's wife, upholstered the interior with white pearlescent Naugahyde. Stewart-Warner gauges and a '53 Ford steering wheel complete the look. The '53 Cadillac 331 is crowned by a S.CO.T. blower.
