CAR CRAFT DREAM ROD

Mensagem  Convidad em Sex 31 Jul 2009, 12:37

The Car Craft Dream Rod was designed by the staff of Car Craft Magazine in 1961. The first drawings of the car appeared in Car Craft October 1961. In 1963 Bob Larivee of Promotions Inc with the approval and help of Car Craft Magazine commissioned Bill Cushenbery to build the Dream Rod. The car was completely custom made using some production car pieces. Bill built the car on a 1952 Jowett Jupiter chassis using a VW torsion bar in front. The frame was originally done in gold metalflake. The front fenders and doors were taken from a 1960 Pontiac, upper rear quarter tops are from a 1960 Chevrolet Corvair, the windshield and top are from a 1953 Studebaker, and the rear window is a rear window from a 1957 Borgward Isabella Sedan turned upside down. Inside, the car featured a 1958 Mercury dashboard restyled with a 1959 Lincoln ashtray. The car got its power from a 289 Ford engine. The Dream Rod was completed late in 1963, and went on from Bill's shop to tour the custom car scene.

In 1966 the Dream Rod was sold to the ISCA which commissioned a substantial revision to the car's styling. Called the Tiger Shark, the car wasn't as successful as the first iteration. New alterations on the car included a hood scoop, the side roof scoops were closed, the trunk lid was eliminated, the rear was stretched 6 inches, the rear window, grille opening and front fenders were also modified.

In 2005 Mark Moriarity bought what was left of the Tiger Shark from Dennis Pallen of Milwaukee. Mark is currently restoring the car back to its first version. After 3 years of hard work, Mark could finally present the fully restored Dream Rod in January 2009. The car made its debut at the HAMB.
