1934 Custom Dragster
Mecum Auction – Kissimmee, FL
January 13, 2017
This 1934 custom-designed dragster was built with an all-business attitude, supercharged Hemi performance and surprisingly, a street-able demeanor. Well almost! We will have to add tail lights, headlights, horn, turn signals, and a few more goodies to make it street legal. I am not sure what we would do about turning radius? No U turns for sure is one answer that comes to mind.
O wait! The headlights are concealed in the front wings, which are electrically operated to expose the lights when in use. The tail lights are concealed under the louvers in the rear body panel, and tucked into the rear end is a functional parachute. The parachute is a good call for the street! You never know when you will need it.
The interior of the car is classic dragster, with the artist’s rendering of custom-design seats, console, steering wheel, gauge cluster and column drop. In other words, uncomfortable! Also featured are driver and passenger harnesses (for sure this is a good call), a stereo and cigarette lighter (not such a good call). I am sure this is a handful to drive without smoking and the sound of the engine more than likely over powers any stereo system when driving.
The construction of this distinct and unequaled street-driven dragster took five years to complete. And it only takes 9 seconds to do the quarter mile!
