Street Rodder - - Street Rod Of The Year! -

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.
