1937 Ford Minotti

 

Great Balls of Fire



Jim Burgess is just another workin' guy like most of us, but his taste in cars is anything but pedestrian. When this hard-hat crane operator decided he needed a real lift, he decided that having us build him a '37 Ford Minotti would do the trick. Yellow and gold flames over fire-engine red, and American Racing wheels What would a hot rod be without flames and pinstriping? The last thing you'll see in your rear view mirror before your doors come flying off... There's a lot to be said for the look of a Minotti grill. The interior leather work is outstanding and just another example of the quality work from the crew of Mangus' Custom Auto Interiors. A leather wrapped Budnik Banjo wheel tops off the ididit tilt column. Chet Herbert white faced guages accent the flamed dash, and a Vintage Air GenII Compac keeps things frosty inside. Glide Engineering makes this split-bench with arm rest. In addition to leather panels, the doors come with electric windows. The Minotti body sits on a TCI chassis. (Pepsi dispenser optional). Small block Chevy engine, 700R-4 trans and Ford 9-inch rear. A Griffen Aluminum radiator and transcooler keep the running gear cool. 750 cfm Demon carb aspirates the SBC and Enos headers help on the back end. Double layer insulation helps that Vintage Air Gen II do its job properly.
