Ford Victorias, especially the 32, are at or very near the top part of most street rodders wish list.
This Vick, owned and built by Steve and Gisela Hayes of Peoria, IL is one fine 32. The beautiful PPG dark emerald green paint was shot by Chuck Gray of Gray's Garage. The Cornhusker chassis has been mated to a Heidts front end and a 9" Ford out back, complete with disc brakes all the way around using Wilwood Calipers.
Looking inward you will find an awesome upholstery job stitched by Steve and Marilyn Ralf's. Another point worth mentioning is the painted, (yes that's right, painted) wood grain dash and garnish moldings. This paint was masterfully applied by Rich Adams of Woodgrain Restoration.
The Boyd Coddington Road Wheels are another nice touch. However, Steve wanted to add a trick look to the wheels so he asked us to carve out a set of one-off domed center caps. The Coddington Billet Wheels now take on a smoother look.
This Vick in its debut run was awarded a "Top 25", (and was very close to winning "Best of Show") at the River Tin Run in Paducah, KY.
This victorious Vick was awarded the "Cool Vicky" award at the Goodguys Heartland Nationals. This car was also displayed in the Goodguys Gazette and Super Rod magazines.
Most recently it was highlighted in a 5 page feature in the October 2008 edition of Street Rod Builder.
