What Are The Top 25 Most Innovative, and Famous Hot Rods Built Between Late 1940s to Mid 1960s?
Hot Rod Milestones: America’s Coolest Coupes, Roadsters, and Racers takes a close look at 25 of the most influential and famous hot rods to hit the road. This book walks you through the decades. It’s big — coffee table sized — and filled with history, beautiful black-and-white and color photography, and has contemporary images that show how these cars exist today. You get the 411 on design, technical background, influences and impact through the accounts and experiences of builders and owners.
The list is divided into three distinct categories:
- Show Roadsters and Coupes,
- Street and Competition Roadsters,
- and Street and Competition Coupes.
Among the famous hot rods that made the list are:
- Dick Flint’s ‘29 Roadster
- Ed Roth’s Outlaw “T”
- The So-Cal ‘34 Coupe
- Bob McGee’s ‘32 Roadster
- Tommy Ivo’s ‘25 T Roadster
Each vehicle in Hot Rod Milestones is represented by its owner and/or builder. There’s Pete Henderson. He built his ‘32 Roadster mostly on an Oregon farm. The Chrisman Brothers — straight outta Compton, circa the 50s — were given the name “California’s Baddest Hot Rodders.” Frank Mack spent three years and 3,000 hours working on his classic “T.”
These 25 famous hot rods are considered the cues for performance, style and speed. Chopped tops and belly pans, where the hot rod raced and won, and what makes each significant, like the McGee ‘32. It’s been almost six decades and hot rodders everywhere still look to recreate the McGee’s stance and look. A restored version is considered priceless.
You’re going to love repeatedly going through this book as much as the authors loved putting it together. Ken Gross is a regarded automotive writer and happens to own both a ‘32 Highboy roadster and a ‘34 Ford coupe. Robert Genat is an author and photographer with over two dozen books in his portfolio. Along with vintage hot rods, another of Genat’s passions is car restoration.
