If you’re a traditional hot rodder there are a few paths you can take to building your own rod. One option is to build a car that captures the style of what you would have seen cruising the streets in the 40s, 50s, and 60s using period-specific parts. Another option, if you want to take things a bit further, is to adopt the more extreme approach by restoring an actual prominent show car or race car to its former glory for a whole new generation to admire and enjoy.
That’s exactly what happened to the Hollish Brothers A Competition Coupe.
How’s that for a seating position!
