This clean custom’s solid Brookville Roadster body began life as high quality steel that was worked into a lean, long and low profile by the pros at Mooresville, North Carolina’s Man Made Legends. As you can probably tell, that process included a lot more than simple sanding and filling, as the car’s taut fuselage was stretched over a custom frame with the help of careful channeling. When you want to paint a vintage Ford hot rod, it’s best to go with vintage Ford pigment, like this roadster’s 1948 Monsoon Maroon 2-stage. Finishing touches took the form of Ford Twolite headlamps, a simple tag bracket, blue-dot taillights and a body-matched window frame. And in the summer of 2013, this classic hit the road as a delightfully simplistic showpiece that mixes the skill of experienced fabricators with the integrity of experienced builders. Check the glossy engine bay and you’ll find 276 cubic inches of Ford 59A flathead that, thanks to approximately 200 horsepower, make this custom a blast to drive! An NOS short block that still wore factory tags prior to its inclusion in the build, that stalwart powerplant maintains rock-solid reliability in literally every season. That rowdy mill spins power through a tough T5 5-speed, which twists a Ford 9-inch axle around fresh 3.43 gears. In keeping with the car’s ‘custom but functional’ theme, that first class drivetrain rides a custom, fully reinforced chassis that’s stanced out of 2×4 rectangular tubing. At the head of those heavy duty rails, a drilled I-beam axle provides four inches of drop. Opposite that roller, fresh QA-1 coil-overs plant the car’s exceptionally light rear-half. That suspension counters the engine’s grunt with a combination of 11 and 12-inch drums. And all that hardware rolls on matte-finished steelies, which lap 6.00-16 Coker-sourced whitewalls.
