'39 Rumblin' Rag!
The Peggs (Patricia, Dan and son Daniel), have had hot rods
on their minds for a long time. They have read the magazines, been to the
shows, and thought wistfully of going on rod runs - cruisin' down the highway
with the wind in their hair. They knew their dream car had to be a convertible
- a ragtop. They knew it had to be big enough for comfort on long trips,
but not so big that it would lose that hot rod feel. It had to have all
the right toys installed. It had to be a custom. And it had to have power
- lots of power.
Eventually, they settled on a '39 Ford Deluxe convertible.
It was just the right size, had the right look, and, with some modification,
could be transformed into their vision of the perfect Hot Rod.
This was, of course, a complete frame off project. Most everything
except that body itself will be replaced, and what isn't replaced will be
modified in one way or another.
Here is some of what the Rumblin' Rag will sports:
502 cubic-inch Street & Performance big block motor,
A custom-built Jet Performance transmission,
A polished Kugel, IRS rear-end,
A TCI frame with IFS,
Four wheel disc brakes,
Vintage Air AC system,
Power windows and seats,
Sound and navigation systems,
And much, much more.
