SO-CAL’s disc brakes with Wilwood four-piston calipers inside finned aluminum drums provide plenty of stopping power while maintaining the roadster’s vintage look. The rear brakes are 11-inch drums. No bells or whistles, but a third pedal and a column-mounted tach help define a true hot rod. Nothing blends street style and ’strip attitude as well as wide whitewall slicks. Hurst tires roll on 15x7 smoothies with 3-3/4 inches of backspacing. Diamond tuck continues in the trunk, occupied by an Optima battery.
