The "Little Sister" is the mellow cruiser in the family, running a stock displacement Chevy 350 with aluminum Edelbrock heads with finned Edelbrock signature valve covers. The Tri-power Rochester carbs feed into an aluminum intake. Patriot lakes-style headers match the appearance of the exhaust on the black Deuce. The automatic transmission is a 700-R4 built by Art Carr, and shifted by a Lokar stick. This rearend is also a 9-inch with Posi and 3.73 gears.
SO-CAL frame, Pete & Jake's shocks, drilled chrome axle, SO-CAL discs and rear drums, and transverse front and rear springs. The frames of both cars were powder-coated and painted, but this car may be more likely to be driven long distances, and less likely to get parked over mirrors.
Wheels & TiresFirestone blackwall bias-ply tires-5.50×16 front and 7.20×16 rear-are perfect for the postwar look of the blue roadster. Five- and 6-inch steelies from Wheel Vintique are painted cream to match the firewall and the interior, and brightened with center caps.
Interior Ivory leather with contrasting blue piping covers the seat in Little Sister. The German square weave carpet is a darker gray tone. Pedals, brake, and shifter are Lokar parts. Redline modified the faces of the Stewart Warners Wings gauges with screen-printed Hollywood Hot Rods logos. The machined gauge panel from Knecht Equipment looks great in the center of the dash. The four-spoke wheel is right out of the old days, via the Budnik catalog.
