It is time for cooling system fun, and that means cutting up a perfectly good radiator to make it fit this one off custom built hot rod.
Bennett’s Customs is an Australian traditional hot rod builder that does some pretty cool car and motorcycle projects, and they have embarked on a new project that must be done by September in order to go racing at the Perkolilli Red Dust Revival. This is a single-seat race car build, like one that you would have seen in the 1940s and they are building it from a mix of scratch-made parts, stuff that has been sitting around collecting dust, and some more traditional parts they will no doubt be wheeling and dealing for. If you are into traditional rides, like those we feature from Iron Trap Garage, then you are going to dig what they are doing here. I’m intrigued, and inspired, by projects like this because we all tend to make projects that are so complicated and big that they take forever. If instead, we worked on some smaller projects, maybe we could get more of them done.
This project here is no lightweight with regards to the work required since they are doing this all from scratch, but it sure looks like it is going to be a fun one and we can’t wait to watch it come together.
On this episode we take an after market Dadson radiator and completely modify the entire thing to fit the Single seater race car.
