This award-winning, handcrafted beauty was built and finished by Brad Starks Rod & Custom. It began its life as an Arizona-based 1950 Tin Woodie four-door wagon. It has been extensively modified throughout, including the redesign and fabrication to convert it from a four-door to a two-door.
The car is powered by a General Motors performance 502-ci big block, with Hilborn fuel-injection, custom Brad Starks stacks and aluminum heads with hand-painted valve covers. The running gear consists of a Gearstar model 4L60 automatic transmission with B&M floor-shifter, a Yank 2,500-rpm stall converter and a nine-inch Currie rear end.
