Congratulations to the winner of the American Hot Rod Foundation Hot Rod of the Month contest for July 2022!
This month’s winning entry, a 1932 Ford Model B Coupe, was submitted by Tommy Craig…
I built this from the ground up in just shy of 2 years. Hot rodding runs in the family and I got huge help from my Dad during the build. I always wanted to have a nod to the old school 40s/50s hot rodding era so I tried to stay true to those styling cues.
There are heaps of unique pieces on the coupe such as a custom bullhorn badge (32COOP), a few Crafty B pieces such as the gas cap and a custom gear shift knob by my Dad with an Australian 1932 half penny set into the top.
The colour of the body is Highland green with inspiration from the Steve McQueen Bullitt Mustang.
About the AHRF Hot Rod of the Month Contest
The Hot Rod of the Month Contest is a special opportunity available only to Foundation Members. Active Members have a two-week period EACH MONTH in which to enter a car they own by providing photos and a description of their car. During the following two-week period, all Members, whether they have entered a car or not, can individually vote for their favorite car.
The car with the most Member votes at the end of each month will be the AHRF Hot Rod of the Month and will be featured on the AHRF website and on social networks.
At the end of each calendar year, the Advisory Board of the Foundation will select one car, as the AHRF Hot Rod of the Year, from that year’s Hot Rod of the Month winners. The Hot Rod of the Year will be given special publicity, and the car will be maintained in an ongoing catalog of AHRF Hot Rod of the Year winners.
