The 2018 Driven Award Pre­sented by Lokar Per­for­mance Prod­ucts was won by Christo­pher Shevlin’s '28 Ford Model A road­ster pickup from Farm­ing­ton Hills, Michi­gan. The all-steel body is chan­neled over the cus­tom boxed frame.

The fron­tend fea­tures a dropped axle, trans­verse spring, and lever shocks.

The 8-inch rear runs

4.10:1 gears. Cus­tom seats are up­hol­stered in black and white vinyl.

Chris built up the small­block Ford to 331 cid with a stro­ker kit. He also added a Tri-Power setup, pol­ished in­take, early

SO-CAL valve cov­ers, and a Joe Hunt dis­trib­u­tor. A C4 trans backs up the en­gine.

Although he doesn’t know the full his­tory of his Model A, Chris has writ­ten its story for the past 22 years. “I am only the cu­ra­tor,” he says, “and en­joy driv­ing and show­ing the car—keep­ing rod­ding his­tory alive for oth­ers to en­joy.”
