How to Build Period Correct Hot Rods - Front Cover

Vintage, retro, or classic hot rods have been an enduring element of the hot rod hobby. These vintage roadsters, sedans, and coups have become very popular because they are the bedrock of the hot rodding culture.

However, many rodders have built a rod dedicated to a particular decade, era, region, flavor, or style, but these have lacked all the period correct details, and it's crucial to get all the details (ie parts) right.

● The Perfect Plan
● Period Power
● Rolling Stock
● Building a Vintage Chassis
● Interior
● Body and Mods
● Choosing the Right Paint, Pattern, Texture and Finish
● Vintage Car Gallery
● Cool Old Parts

If some parts are not of the complementary or the package does not faithfully replicate a particular style or era, the theme of the hot rod can be ruined. Hot rod veteran Gerry Burger explains how to identify, buy, or build the parts to create a faithful period correct hot roda car that you will be proud of and will gain the respect from others in the hobby.
