From workhorse to beauty queen, “Delivered on Time” is our next Great 8 Finalist. Hot Rod Construction out of South Carolina built this 1939 Sedan Delivery. With Dan Wickett at the helm, his vision and talent took a barn find to the Ridler contender, Not too shabby! According to owner Harold Schrader, “there are so many body modifications you can’t begin to number them.” One look at the flawless panels and there’s no doubt, countless hours of work went into this build.
To illustrate the beast to beauty story, take a look at the flawless leather interior. It is a far cry from the original utilitarian Ford treatment. Hot Rod Construction artfully used woodwork throughout the “Delivered on Time” build. Zebra wood covers the cargo area, I’m pretty sure her delivery days are over! Similarly, wood covers the dash and the seat backs. Suicide doors with flipped hinges, narrowed running boards and finally shaved drip rails round out this build. Although, if “Delivered on Time” were to deliver the goods, the 5.7l Hemi and 5 speed tranny with overdrive would make her job easy.
How do you sum up a beast to a beauty build, utilitarian carryall reworked and into rolling art, you just have to see for yourself. Check out “Delivered on Time”……
