Feature Car: Stuart Dunbar’s 1929 Model-A Ford


13 Dec

Issue 19 of Heavy Duty Hot Rods (aka Rat Rods & Hot Rods) features our photo shoot and feature story on Stuart Dunbar’s incredible and unique 1929 Model-A Ford Tourer. Powered by a 1949 250ci Buick straight-8 engine, it’s not your usual Model-A and the deeper you dig, the more bespoke it becomes. The best bit is that Stuart, with the help of great car guys like Dave Hart, built it almost entirely at home.

Feature Car: Andrew McClelland’s 1928 Ford Tourer


05 Oct

Issue 18 of Heavy Duty Hot Rods (aka Modified Street Hot Rods) is about to hit the stands and includes three photo shoots by Hosking Industries, including the one we did on Andrew McClelland’s awesome retro 1928 Ford Tourer, shown here. Resplendent in its undercoat grey paint and boasting plenty of understated pin striping, the flathead-powered open-cab rod gets plenty of attention.

Andrew and his Drag-Ens club mates built the rod in a short time frame for their annual Valla Rod Run, that the club puts together on the NSW north coast. Here, Andrew’s daughter scored the job of cruising the funky flattie along the cruise route all weekend, grabbing a trophy for her efforts.
