70's style
« on: December 21, 2012, 05:10:53 PM »
When talking about the seventies, the first thing that comes to mind is long-haired chicks with halter tops & bell bottoms... oh wait, this is a car forum !  Mmmmm, give me a minute here....

okay, back on track - wide tires (the wider the better) followed by wild paint jobs & jacked up, I mean JACKED UP hot rods !

Actually, several styles emerged in the 70s.  John Buttera's T tudor was the epitome of the resto rods, highly detailed with many hand fabricated chassis components.

Jim Jacobs and others felt the need to go another direction, a much simpler direction.  Built to drive long distances without worrying about one-off parts breaking, they built their hot rods with basic components.   Pete & Jake's coupes popularized the traditional movement, and it is even more popular today, albeit with some minor changes.

Andy Brizio's AMBR-winning T roadster was very unique with the Art Himsl-applied paint.  I'd love to see this paint style come back !

No, I actually like it  :o, but I have no idea what style of hot rod it would compliment, other than what's been done already.

Psychedelic (how many would know how to spell that) paint isn't for me but I do remember the really wide wheels hanging out. Bellbottoms were cool.

Only thing I owned w/ a wild paint job was a 70's GMC van.
Portholes, swivel captain's chairs, couch, TV, shag carpet. Had a stove, icebox & a sink at the back door.
Paint was a combo of greens & blues w/ airbrushed mural, lace & freak drops.
It was awful looking. Camped in it & pulled my blown Sanger hydro with it.

Nope,  I've had it for a while.  I posted on the HAMB before.  Maybe I just need to do another history/build thread of Ray's and my roadsters (VF's version too) if folks here would be interested.

FWIW, the Mo Moxley Impala was painted/built in the very early sixties, like 1960-61.

Yup. chopped, here it is, in all its fat tired seventies glory. How the hell anyone thought putting those wire basket wheels on it was a good idea escapes me. I have liked this truck for so long, I was seriously thinking about building one, until I found my T Tudor body. What a great looking truck.

no idea. You could try asking needs louvers on the HAMB, I think he knows Al. I might have an email for needs louvers, I'll check. I really did think about building one, I was committed to some sort of full fendered '26/'27 T for my 270hp 283. I had lined up the back panel of a pick up cab, but in the end I decided to use a Tudor body for the extra room. This is the only closed cab '26/'27 T pick up phantom I can recall anyone building, its a GREAT idea, and very simple to do.

Dick Rodwell knew Al well, he said the truck was sold long time ago, he has not seen it since.  Unfortunately,  Dick said Al passed away a couple of years ago.

Sorry to hear that about Al; it certainly is a cool truck !  It's a 'phantom' but one that easily could have been built by Ford.
