Dean Lowe’s latest ’29 roadster pickup with a blown small-block was a STREET RODDER choice at the Grand Daddy Drive-In. His red, dual-quad 265-powered A pickup adorned the Jan. ’62 cover of Hot Rod magazine. Another SR award winner was this ’32 DeSoto convertible. One of 660 produced, it’s powered by a 5.7 Dodge Hemi backed by a 45RFE overdrive automatic. A Kugel Komponents IFS is used up front; in the rear Kugel four-bars locate a 9-inch Ford rearend. We picked Kevin DeSpain’s ’50 Studebaker for a plaque. Tons of body mods, a full rollcage, and a beautiful leather interior, coupled with a 450-horse, small-block Chevy under the hood, made it a winner in our book.
