Friday’s Feature

The 40 dash blog brought a lot of pictures and the stock design is the preferred look of my readers. I agree fully. I did mention steering columns but failed to note that the 40 column, in addition to the dash, is also a standard in the hot rod world. Early rodders used the column shift in their cars to clean up the small floor space in early Fords. The column has been duplicated by many manufactures but I only like the real deal. I thought about this blog today as I was reading my daily dose of Hot Rod on the H.A.M.B. I ran across the “Final Chapter” of the El Bombero chopped sedan today. He has installed a nice 40 column and it fits like Henry would have done it. This is the nicest sedan to come out in a long time that I am aware of. The simplicity of the build makes it top on my list. We all could learn from a builders who makes a plan for the car and sticks to it. We don’t need every bolt — on item or new amenity that comes on a new Tahoe. I am sure he and his family will have a great time and draw a super crowds at the events. Congratulations on your build.

The weekend brings and open house at B&E Customs. I attended last year and plan to go again this year. The “Boys” do some amazing work in a really neat and clean facility. I wish them the best during these tough times.

Have a wonderful weekend and …

Stay Tooned!



The 40 column works well in this Deuce with a 48 Ford wheel complete with spinner knob.


Bob O has a 40 column in every car he has except his Mercury. He hasn’t figured out how to do it.


I installed one in my 33 roadster to make it easy to shift and clean up the floor. Mine is an automatic.


This elegant picture tells the story. Chopped top, wires, perfect stance and outstanding use of color on a hot rod.


This is an excellent use of a 40 column in a Deuce. I really like the SO-CAL insert.


Keeping the theme simple, the interior is perfect for the car. Mike must have an interior designer background or a wife with an eye for design.

Todays Deuce…Dreaming!


The “Final Chapter Sedan” is what I call a well done project. You can read all about it on the H.A.M.B. Punch in El Bombero.
