2019 Road Tour Car First Look

Street Rodder - - Street Corner -

As the 2018 United Pa­cific/ STREET ROD­DER Road Tour ’32 Ford pickup cruises across Amer­ica, work is un­der­way on the 2019 car. We called Troy Ladd at Hol­ly­wood Hot Rods, builder of two pre­vi­ous Road Tour cars, to dis­cuss build­ing an­other, maybe a ’55 or ’56 Ford. “Funny you should men­tion it,” he said.

Not long be­fore, Troy had pur­chased sev­eral ne­glected cars from an es­tate in Pasadena, in­clud­ing this stock ’55 Ford Cus­tom­line Tu­dor sedan. The Y-block en­gine ran, but the car hadn’t moved since it went into hi­ber­na­tion 50 years ago.

As this is writ­ten, the Cus­tom­line is at Road­ster Shop in Illi­nois, where a cus­tom chas­sis is be­ing fab­ri­cated.

Other project choices haven’t been made yet, but STREET ROD­DER read­ers will be treated to ev­ery de­tail of our 2019 Road Tour ’55 Ford buildup.
