This project began when Derek purchased an original ’28 Ford Roadster cowl, doors and rear body section and delivered them to our shop. He wanted that “old school” look but with plenty of get up and go. Hi-boy style, model A frame, I-Beam front axle and white wall tyres were a must.
Rad Rides firstly got to work on the chassis, fitting it with a traditional I-Beam front end and Ford 9” diff in the rear. New floor subframe sections were purchased, assembled and welded together with the rest of the body sections. The original firewall was removed and new custom built recessed firewall and transmission tunnel were fabricated to suit the 350 Chevy engine and TH400 transmission.

Since meeting the guys at Rad Rides they have been a huge help as a novice to Hot Rods. I had a dream and it is becoming a reality with the help from this great team. From the high quality of their work to the friendly service, they even helped me with all of my build papers.  So a big thanks to Trent, Bob, and Travis and I can’t wait to show her off.
