Six figures worth of fun?

Starting with a Squeeg’s Kustoms concept and a Jimmy Smith rendering, this woodie was built from the ground up with a ’33 Ford roadster cowl from Steve’s Auto Restorations, custom SAC frame rails (patterned from the Vern Luce 3-window coupe by the late Boyd Coddington), round-tube cross members, a hand-made steel body with a steel-cage inner structure and wheel tubs, a rolled rear pan, a four-piece hood, and vee’d windshield posts.

Power is a Roush 401IR Ford V8 with an AOD transmission. Specs include a five-inch dropped front axle, Wilwood disc brakes and a Winters quick-change rear. Fabrication, assembly, and paint were by Squeeg’s Kustoms in Chandler, AZ. The leather interior was by Gabe’s Custom upholstery. The one-off hand-made maple body was built by Doug Carr of The Wood’N Carr, Signal Hill, CA.
