Qualified at: Meguiar’s MotorEx
HAVING campaigned one of Australia’s best known EH station wagons for over 10 years (which included taking out Top Wagon at Summernats), Glenn has upped the ante with his incredible HOK gold ’32 Tudor. “I’ve always liked the appeal of the 32,’ says Glenn. “After attending a few MotorEx’s, one thing led to another, and I placed the order for the chassis several years ago.”
The aforementioned chassis is from Lilow Auto Tech, which has been outfitted with a Rod Tech polished stainless IFS, triangulated four-bar rear and topped with a purposed-built, Deuce Customs body fitted with smokey tinted glass.
To add to 32CDAN’s street cred, its healthy 600hp, 400ci Chev sports a whining 6/71 Blower Shop pump and EFI bug-catcher intake. Completing the driveline is a full-manual TH400 and Strange nine-inch – which has all been painted in contrasting HOK Bronze that has all been buffed and polished to a mirror shine.
While 32CDAN is plenty tough, what really stands out is the brighter-than-bright HOK gold hue laid on by Jason Able Smash Repairs. “They’re perfectionists,” says Glenn.
On the inside there’s lots of leather, Dakota Digital Dash, billet everywhere, modified buckets and a hand fabricated centre console. “Other than stitching the interior and the paint, I built the rod at home in the garage with a tonne of help from family and friends. My son and I have both learnt how to MIG and TIG-weld while building this rod. Overall it’s been a labour of love, which I’ve built to the best standard I can. I hope people like it.”
