If you have been looking for a genuine all steel Hot Rod with a difference.....the search is over.....you've have just found it!

This super cool old Fat Fendered Chevy is a well known local rod, and was previously sold by us many years ago, it was originally built quite some time ago down in Invercargill, and was obviously built to a very high standard, which still shows throughout today, having won its fair share of prizes over the years, and this 39 was also previously a NZ Hot Rod magazine feature car,

The body has been the subject of some very clever modifications, starting life as an NZ new 4 door Flat Back Sedan this old girl was converted to a true Sedan Delivery, with one of the major modifications being the serious roof chop, along with many more subtle modifications like moving the headlamps back, and recessing them down into the mudguards, to further enhance the lowered stance and the overall appearance, from the electric cowl vent, rolled rear pan, recessed plate, extensive custom bonnet vent detail, and hidden fuel filler, the numerous other clever detail touches are everywhere.

Built in the popular for the time "billet aluminium period" this 39 would have been state of the art in her day, and it still looks fantastic many years on, the wheels are highly polished deep dish alloy billet style, and the dash is also profile cut billet alloy, with a full Dakota Digital dash layout.

The interior trim is all finished in cloth with heavily detailed custom recessed panelling throughout, and full leather front bucket seats have been fitted, with a fold up occasional seat fitted in the rear cargo area, along with power tinted windows, which is all in keeping with the style of the period.

The running gear is proven strong with a staunch 396 Big Block sitting in the custom boxed chassis, which is believed to be out to 402 cubes, and this is mated to an ever trusty TH 400, and onto a nine inch Ford Diff, the front suspension is courtesy of a Holden and is equipped with power disc brakes, and a rack and pinion steering system. The engine is nicely detailed, with Edelbrock dress up gear, and has also been treated with the same attention to detail as the rest of the build.

The overall drivability of this Rod is excellent, the power and huge torque is very obvious, but the package is equally happy just cruising through the traffic, and performance is very user friendly, and evident of a high quality original build, fuel economy is also a lot better than would be expected due to the state of tune, which is not an easy combination to get right.

Paintwork and trim is still very presentable, and although this old Fat Fendered Chevy has been driven and not hidden, it still presents very well today having been on the road for a number of years, yet still retaining the ability to turn heads where ever it goes.

To build a car of this calibre today would take a huge financial commitment, and a serious investment of time, blood sweat and tears, this is a proven and well built Hot Rod that has stood the test of time, and its turnkey drive away, with full LVVTA certification for all modifications.

A very cool custom built all steel authentic NZ built Hot Rod that is absolutely unique in every respect.

Inspection a must!
