1939 Chevy master deluxe coupe

​If you are looking for a dependable drive anywhere street rod this is the perfect candidate.  This 2 tone cobalt blue beauty has proven its ability with 3 hot rod power tours, a few trips to the NSRA run in Louisville KY, not counting the numerous shows around Illinois.  We bought this car from a good friend who enjoyed 38,000 plus miles of cool with this coupe. All while shifting through all 5 gears of its T5 transmission and hearing the roar of the 350 chevy with all its great power. And with the 273 gears in the rear this joker will get nearly 20 miles to the gallon and still have enough torque to pull you nicely off the line.  After we bought it we went through the car and added power steering and Vintage Air AC cuase in Texas a day without AC is like a day in Hell.  Well hopefully you will never have to prove that theory LOL.  this is a great showing car with it fresh paint and new wheel. Come and check it out it has rocks and chips but its a regularly driven car just like we like them.  ​$35,000

​1962 Ford Unibody ​This here is the shop truck which is not really for sale but you know the deal everything has a price on it.  This is a truck I have collected parts for and loved on for a long time and decided to finally just build it, and wow how great it turned out.  Yes its still in progress cause my dad always said, the day you quit working on them is the day you sell them. So here at Martin's Rod and Custom we are all about the stance of the vehicle and we like them low. So we went with a Sids Drop Axle in the front with disc brakes and our very own, built in house, lowered spring kit front and back. And baby got back cause this is a unibody only built by Ford for 3 year so the cab and bed are all one piece making that big oh back end and very rare short wheel base.  This truck started life out as a small back window but do to the miss fortune of it being in Houston most of its life that humidity did a number on its roof. SO we took another doner unibody and did a BIG BACK WINDOW roof swap. Heck yeah in our opinion that just completes the right look. So we had to accent that awesome feature with nothing but cobalt blue candy paint and custom panel paint job, by our old school kool painter. i could go on but lets get down to the small details. 1989 302 ford converted to carburation, c4 transmission, and full American Autowire wiring harness headlight to taillight. Then to clean it up and make it comfortable to drive full King Ranch style interior.  Come by and check this thing out it rides as good as it looks.  $17,500
