1936 Cord 810 Restoration Update – Manns Restoration

 

We thought it was time for another update on the 1936 Cord at Manns Restoration, in Festus, MO. They really have made a lot of progress recently and it’ll be back on the ground before long. They solved some issues with the pre-selector gearbox and now they have it running and shifting fine. The Cord is a truly unique automobile that was way ahead of it’s time. It’s equipped with front wheel drive, flip up headlamps, suicide doors, the pre-selector style gearbox, and many other impressive features. It’s great to get the opportunity to study one in depth and up close. We hope you find it interesting, we’ll have more on this fantastic automobile in the days ahead. Thank you for watching!

Trans Am Update & Open Headers Road Test

 

It was a nice day out, so we decided to take the Trans Am for a little road test. Jordan is still waiting on some parts, but he cobbled things together just so he could drive it. The acceleration run at the beginning was with a shorty header on one side and a long tube on the other. With open headers, the size difference left to right didn’t seem to effect it any. Hopefully you find this interesting, we thought it was time for an update. Thanks for watching!

1958 Chevrolet Apache Shortbed Stepside Pickup

I thought you’d like a look at this really nice 1958 Chevrolet Apache pickup. It’s a bit of a hot rod, with a later model small block Chevy topped with an Edelbrock intake and 4 BBL Carb, along with a set of long tube headers. Inside, they have added a tilt column, some aftermarket gauges, and some later model seats. It’s riding on white letter tires, mounted on some nice chrome smoothies. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!
