It's not that often that hot-rod car culture and a surfing lifestyle collide, but when it does, this is the spectacular result. The previous owner actually used this vehicle to go to the beach and have a surf - so it's not all just for show! 

This "Surf-Rod" uses a 351cu Cleveland V8 (featuring MSD electronic ignition, Edelbrock carburettor & Performer intake) mated with a 3-speed automatic transmission and Galaxy 9-inch rear-end. It is fitted with adjustable coil-overs at the rear, dropped i-beam front suspension and has had a disc-brake conversion at the front. 

It features the original vehicle's steel body cab on the original chassis. The hood is not original and is a hand-rolled item, while the loadbed was imported during the car's build. Gloss Meranti wood is used extensively throughout the vehicle (including a neat lockable box in the loadbed) and pairs well with the oxblood leather interior and hand-turned aluminium dashboard, fitted with VDO instruments.

The vehicle is currently fitted with a roll-over hoop and carries a surfboard. This can be removed to achieve a more classic look. The 15-inch Bullet wheels and BF Goodrich thick white-wall tyres were imported from the US. And yes, the surfboard is included in the price!
