  2. The stance, the wire wheels and the uncommon for the West Coast channeling all hit the mark for a unique exciting vehicle,,, it reminds me of the OT glass roadster that Ron Cerdiano did for Street Rodder usuing a (sorry for the next phrase) kit from Speedy Bill.

    Great looking roadster with spot on proportions.

    Od though is the caption about the engine: "adjustable pushrods" and "heads were ported and polished" on a flathead?

    Nothing like a well executed stance and channel job.

    Wish it was printed in full, like the name of the scribe that wrote the article. Ray Brock, Don Francisco, Bob Greene seldom made errors when 'transposing' specs from the owners to the pages of HRM.
    The were some I'd catch from time to time, but very seldom on flatheads. HRM was the bible, back then...

    Nifty car no matter if someone made a slight error describing the engine that had adjustable lifters, was ported and polished and had flycut stock heads for valve clearance.

    Cool little car, but I can't help thinking it should have had '40 steels rather than wires.
