Bob Sullivan's 1931 Ford
1931 Ford Roadster built and owned by Dragsters member Bob Sullivan of Muncie, Kansas. The build took Bob four years to complete. The 1931 Ford body was channeled 6 inches over the 1932 Ford chassis. The rear end featured a rolled pan and 1939 Ford taillights. Bob made a pan running along the lower body edge. In front, hydraulic brakes and tubular shocks were installed which provided a smooth ride. The 1932 Ford grille shell was moved forward due to the channeling job. The roadster was sported by a 1949 Oldsmobile enginge with dual ignition, headers and a big over bore. The rear-end ratio was 3.27:1, this allowed it to cruise at high speeds. A 1940 Ford column shift gear box was used. The interior was done in blue and white leather, which blended smoothly with the baltic blue body.
