Knock It OffSO-CAL Speed Shop is known for its top-of-the-line hard parts for building traditional roadsters and customs in addition to turning out beautiful chassis work and concours-quality restorations.

In particular, the company's New Traditionalist line is especially popular, and the Hot Rod Wheel is the latest from this series. Cast from 356A heat-treated T6 aluminum, and with a one-piece aluminum pin-drive knock-off, the Hot Rod Wheel captures the post-WWII circle-track style. The wheel comes in 16-inch diameter with three widths of 5 1/2, 6, and 8 inches, with the optional steel adapter available in Ford (5 on 4 1/2) and Chevy (5 on 4 3/4) bolt patterns, along with all related hardware.

Top Up Or TanIf you've ever attempted to fabricate a folding top frame for a roadster, you'll appreciate just how difficult it can be, especially getting it to fold in the right places while looking good at the same time, so the introduction of Roadster Ute Inc's Kwik Top Universal Top Iron Kit couldn't be more welcome. As the "universal" part of the name suggests, it will fit 1928-32 Ford roadsters, 1928-34 roadster pickups, and can be easily modified to fit other makes and models too.

This is possible because the kit is adjustable in three directions. It comes standard to fit a 2-inch chopped windshield, but it's adjustable for any height or body width, and can be folded like an original top or removed from the car in the "up" position. The Kwik Top can be fitted and ready to go to the upholstery shop in about one hour. For more information, contact Mick at or one of the following dealers: C.W.
