This special Plum Crazy hot rod is really eye catching thanks to the EMI all steel body, and the unique styling components that adorn the car. A custom gray tweed interior is nicely finished with supportive bucket seats, LeCarra steering wheel, VDO gauges, and scalloped door panels.
Next to other Hi Boys this one has pretty simple styling, with a slight twist. Square headlights and side mirrors are different and unexpected on a Hot Rod like this. So many Hi Boys have round headlights, and heavily louvered hoods and/or side panels. This one takes a different approach - 3 horizontal tapered, teardrop shaped 'strakes' break up the otherwise smooth side panels, and vertical tail lights are carefully integrated on the rear of the car. Going hand in hand with the smooth, simple styling is the fact no exhaust components can be seen from the side of the car. Hi Boys commonly have headers and side exhaust systems. Two simple exhaust pipes protrude slightly just beneath the trunk at the rear of this Plum Crazy creation.
Grey tweed rules the roost in the passenger compartment and trunk area of this hot rod. A plum crazy painted dash and purple scalloped door panels break up the grey a little bit. VDO gauges framed by an aluminum panel, a purple LeCarra steering wheel, and bolstered bucket seats are the main focal points inside the car. A purple panel in the center of the dashboard hides the ignition switch and window switches.
Beneath the sideways canting hood is a 350ci V8 that was originally fitted to an IROC Camaro. The engine provides plenty of power to get this Hi Boy moving at a good pace if you put your foot in it. A TH350 transmission handles gear selection and power is transmitted to the wheels through a Ford 9” rear end. The engine bay is tidy with many polished aluminum parts and the engine itself is painted in Plum Crazy to match the exterior. Under the car is extremely tidy as well. Painted, polished, or chromed suspension components are easy to see, even when the car is on the ground. American Racing five spoke wheels wrapped in BF Goodrich tires give the car some more style points.
This eye catching, Plum Crazy creation consists of plenty of traditional styling and components as well as some unique touches. The build of this hot rod was thought out and nice components were used to make the final product. Be sure to check out all the photos and video on our main website: Garage Kept Motors.
