The jam-packed New York State Fairgrounds celebrating the 12th Annual Syracuse Nationals was a perfect time for STREET RODDER and Ford Racing's recognition of street rodders who install a late model Ford engine in a Ford hot rod. A thorough walk through the event brought us to Dick Brereton of Anderson, South Carolina, who is our latest award recipient with his bitchin' '32 Ford roadster fitted with a 302ci Ford Racing crate V-8 linked to a Ford Racing 5-speed transmission. Crowned with an Inglese EFI induction system topped with Hogan Racing air cleaners, polished aluminum valve covers and plenty of dazzling chrome makes it a standout in any crowd. Built by Mason's Hot Rods in Spartanburg, South Carolina, the Deuce features a Mason's chassis loaded with a Ford 9-inch rear out back and classic drilled & dropped Super Bell axle and SO-CAL Speed Shop hairpins up front. Traditional American Racing Rod Master wheels shod with Uniroyal rubber sets the stance. A Brookville Roadster steel body was massaged to perfection and coated with PPG Ultra Jet Black while inside Petter Davidsen laid out yards of supple tan leather rolls and pleats. An Auburn-style dash insert was filled with Haneline gauges to monitor the vitals while a SO-CAL banjo steering wheel navigates the course. Congratulations to Dick who will receive a limited edition jacket as the award winner.
