By now you may have seen the photo of the rear seat. It was built to accommodate the tubed rear assembly. The rear Halibrand Wheels are a full 10" wideand the wheels ride on Mickey Thompsons. At the front a pair of Halibrands are also mounted. With front discs, reardrums and a r coil over suspension at the rear give the Woody plenty of stopping power and it handles great. Solid chassis and undercarriage with no rust. The Woody has been only used in the dry.
The running gear includedtime tested and Hi-Performance Custom Chevrolet small block, with plenty of polished item accompanying the engine. An Edelbrock four barrel gives the Woody plenty of punch, as does the custom, tubular exhaust headers. Going through the gears is precise with athree speedTurbo 375and a Ford nine inch diff. The Woody not look good, but she really moves.
The paint is in fine, clear and shinycondition. however, the lacquerhasrubbed a bit thin on the top crease of the left front fender. It is just thin, not rubbed through. A fan belt broke and hit the hood on the right side, leaving a nickel size dimple. There is a nickel size chip in the chrome on the front bumper and a very few chip in the chrome bumper at the rear.
The Woody runs greatand she show well at any event, whether a concours, a hot rod show or at your local car event. Ithas always been a crowd favorite over the twelve years of my ownership.
