Prestige Pearl

Auto Meter's newest addition to its Prestige series is the Prestige Pearl range, featuring hybrid dials highlighted by embossed spun aluminum accents, traditional arrow-styled pointers, and finished with period-style domed lenses and chrome bezels. The beauty of these instruments is more than skin deep; at their heart are the same performance meter movements found in race cars around the world.

Illuminated by Auto Meter's most advanced full-face LED lighting, Prestige Pearl gauges provide unmatched nighttime visibility, ensuring you'll always know exactly how your vehicle in running. Prestige Pearl instruments are available now in the most popular sizes and types. For more information, contact Auto Meter at (866) 248-6356 or www.autometer.com.

X-CEL-lent

The Weiand X-CELerator single-plane intake manifold for 2V-headed Ford 351 Clevelands has been re-tooled. That means the popular Ford intake is now even better looking and flows more volume than ever.

A revised runner design smooths airflow while giving the intake an even better appearance. The Weiand 7516 is built to support engines with an operating rpm of 1,500-7,000 with a square-bore carburetor. For more information, visit Weiand (a division of Holley) at www.weiand.com.

Real Steel

Steve's Auto Restorations (SAR) in Portland, Oregon, tells us that they are once again producing their very popular 1933-34 roadster quarter-panels as part of the Real Deal Steel parts line. Each quarter-panel is die-stamped using the original gauge sheetmetal and includes the doorjamb flange and trunk opening flange.

SAR does not manufacture coupe quarter-panels, however the Real Steel roadster quarter-panels can be modified and used as a patch panel for three-window coupe, five-window coupe, and cabriolet bodies. All of SAR's replacement sheetmetal panels are manufactured in the United States. For more information, contact Steve's Auto Restorations at (503) 665-2222 or visit www.stevesautorestorations.com.


That's Rad

AutoRad Radiators has applied years of experience to design a handcrafted radiator using a purpose-built core from the racing industry. These new cores replace the two rows of 1 1/2-inch core with a specially designed 2-inch extruded tube.

This makes a lighter yet more durable core than previous models, capable of cooling a 1,200-plus horsepower motor without the need of a thicker, heavier core. This also makes for a more efficient system, balancing the needs of high-horsepower, hard-to-cool cars. For more information, contact AutoRad Radiators at (770) 983-1345 or www.autoradradiators.com.
