Get your kicks on Route 66... U.S. Route 66, also known as the Mother Road, is propably the most iconic road in the world. The first time I heard about Route 66 was many years ago when I listened the Rolling Stones playing "Get your kicks on Route 66". From that moment on I loved the 66 and especially all the buildings, the art deco' gas stations and the advertising signs along the road. I built a little piece of the Route to present my latest Hot Rod that has a great story at its back too. The red/white machine in the pic was owned and raced by Hayward V-Eights member Lee A. Jagla of Hayward, California. Lee got the hot rod as a gift from his parents for his high school graduation in 1960. In 1965 the “T” went into storage, and spent the next 48 years locked up in a dry garage. When Lee passed away, his daughter sold the old hot rod as part of her dad's estate. In 2014 it was advertised for sale on eBay. Jon Aksel Lier of Tønsberg, Norway, found the listing and won it. Now he happily drives a truly piece of american kustom kulture! Below disassembled The car features a '23 Ford Model T body mounted on a '30 Ford Model A frame. Power comes from a 241 cu. in. '53 Dodge baby Hemi that ran an Offenhauser intake manifold and a single 4 barrel carburetor. It ran 1939 Ford taillights and Yankee brand headlights. Painted white with a red chassis. Plus I added two red stripes on the entire machine, a little hard-top and the brand Ford in red on the back of the turtle deck. More info and pics on flickr. Thanks for stopping by.
