1934 FORD ROADSTER | DALE FODE | REDWOOD CITY, CA
In2015, Dale Fode’s roadster was at the Grand National Roadster Show vying for America’s Most Beautiful Roadster. In 2018, it was at Hot August Nights winning a Top 100 award. The stunning street rod, virtually hand built by Mark Willis and Bob Stewart at Mark Willis Custom Painting in Grants Pass, Oregon, blends street rod attitude with ’30s coachbuilt car elegance. The jet black body has been widened, quarters moved up, and doors lengthened 6 inches. The ’35 fenders were fabricated— and cover 18- and 20-inch one-off wheels. The custom frame is the platform for the Kugel Komponents independent suspension. Gabe’s Custom Interiors wrapped the seats and doors in deep red leather. The custom components have the appearance of vintage pieces, surrounded by modern design throughout—from dash to door panels. There’s nothing nostalgic in the engine compartment, home to a Magnuson supercharged LS7. See more of Dale’s roadster at https://bit.ly/2F8eQ5l.
