Pete Limpert's 1936 Ford
When Pete's Ford was featured in Rod Action June 1974 it was powered by a 312 cu.in. engine from a Thunderbird. The engine was hopped and dressed up featuring extra goodies such as an Edelbrock manifold, three Stromberg 97 carburetors and Hedman headers. The engine was hooked to a 1939 Ford transmission with Lincoln gears. The suspension and frame were all 1936 Ford, except for 1940 Ford brakes. The rear had been lowered 3 inches, and the wheels were 1966 Ford Thunderbird wire wheels with Atlas 6.95x14 tires. The interior was done in black Naugahyde, and it featured Stewart-Warner gauges.
Pete was a painter by trade.
