It’s amazing how much you can change the look of a car with simple bolt-on upgrades like wheels, tires, bumpers, etc. Just this week our friend Tommy bolted a set of steelies with dog dish hubcaps and staggered tire sizes onto a stock wrong year mid 1970’s Nova and it made it look like a real hot rod. It’s that simple in some cases and it’s the kind of thing you should remember when working on a project, because you don’t always have to go hog wild to get stuff looking awesome and ready to drive. In this video you’ll see the dudes from Iron Trap take their little old lady 1934 Ford and clean it up a little more, remove a dent that has been bothering them, and then bolt on some good stuff that really changes the look into something special without spending a fortune or making any hard core modifications to this amazingly original car.
Here is the video description:
The 1934 Ford Coupe known as “Beautiful” is getting some upgrades. I know a few people are worried we are going to chop and channel it, but all the changes we are making can easily be fixed. Matt has had a set of 16″ Kelsey Hayes bent spoke wheels in his stash for the right project, and “Beautiful” could use different wheel with a little rubber rake. The headlights at some point were converted to sealed beams, but they look horrible and need to be changed out. The few easy upgrades made a huge difference in the look and still allows the car to be returned to stock. Let us know what you think in the comments down below.
