Street Rodder - - Street Rod Of The Year! -

B ret Sukert’s ’60s-style ’32 three-win­dow coupe got our at­ten­tion as soon as we en­tered the Suede Palace. This tra­di­tional hot rod is home­built from an un­mod­i­fied orig­i­nal steel body bought from well-known rodder Dick Page. Foss’ Hot Rods han­dled body and paint chores be­fore Mitch Kim stepped for­ward to add all that pin­strip­ing. The sus­pen­sion in­cludes a dropped axle and trans­verse leaves in front and quar­ter el­lip­ti­cals in back, built on a Deuce frame. The Chevy 350 small-block is topped with a Weiand man­i­fold and ’65-’66 GTO air cleaner. In­te­rior el­e­ments in­clude Mopar van seats with white tuck ’n’ roll up­hol­stery, an N.O.S. Grant wheel, a re­stored Ha Dees heater, and Ste­wartWarner blue face gauges (it took 50 gauges to get eight that matched). The coupe left the Suede Palace with the Best of Show award as well as a Top 100 pick. See more pho­tos at https://bit. ly/2AN9hFd.
