Now I don't mean the flower power, hippie era. I prefer 1960-66 times-show rides, wild paint, and an "anything is game" attitude.
I've always loved the look of a '27 tall T sedan ever since I began building models as a kid. This right-on ride begins with a sedan with a little shave off the top, but just a wee one. I would pie-cut the roofline 2 inches at the front pillars for a go-fast tilt, and then stretch the whole custom frame 5 inches in longitude with a gentle sweep from the firewall forward to give a semi-Deuce kick and feel.
Hanging forward, I would suicide the frontend using a '37 Ford front axle and reversed eye spring. A nice rake, but not radical. Out back, I would choose a '40 rear, convert it to open drive, and retain the transverse spring.
The powertrain would consist of a '60s vintage Olds motor, laden with go-fast speed goodies and topped off with a four-carb log manifold. Exhaust would be handled with a set of custom-made weed burner pipes.
For bling, I would have this baby dipped in chrome-frontend, suspension, and rear. I would shod the skins with wide whites all 'round, and the rears would be a vintage piecrust slick from Hurst Racing tires. Chrome reverse wheels would add more sparkle and give that early show rod feel.
The icing on the cake would be having the body lathered in a deep candy red (with 'flake, of course!) over a silver base. I would accent the secondary color in an English white. The cockpit would wear a deep coat of white tuck 'n' roll, a '40 Ford dash, and tall custom buckets. With a look like something Revell or Monogram would have offered in '65, this would be the cat's meow.
