In the 68th annual Autorama, the historic 1966 Ford GT40 Mark II and Ferrari 330 P3 race cars featured in the film Ford v Ferrari, as well as our custom Camaro and Corvette limousines were among notable vehicles present. With the many vehicles that are glorious in their own right, we at A Limo World would like to share a few of the highlights.
1955 Chevy – Irvine, California
If it were built to today’s standards of a modern bespoke supercar such as a Bugatti, Bentley, or Pagani, the concept premise for Bob Matranga’s 1955 Chevy “Brute Force” was to imagine what would a 1955 Chevrolet look like. With minor adjustments by turning up the boost wick so it could produce 1,400 horsepower; the answer came in a twin turbocharged 540 cubic inch Merlin V-8 with Arias Hemi heads configured to deliver 800 reliable and tractable horsepower. With IRS (independent rear suspension) triangulated rear control arms, the platform for Brute Force is a Morrison Tri-Five chassis where the front suspension features the extreme kind of detailing necessary. Using a brake caliper mount and cooling scoop, all machined from one piece, the uprights consist of the spindle, backing plate and steering arm.
1969 Camaro – Muskogee, Oklahoma
The 1969 Chevy Camaro owned by Tim and Angie Wheeler of Muskogee is stunning in candy apple red Axalta paint. It features custom made gauges, brakes and suspension, engine oil and transmission fluid level dipsticks and gas and brake pedals, with chrome plating and various plated surfaces. Camaros are recognized as good material for customizing!
1955 Cadillac Coupe Deville – Genoa, Nevada
With the help of the addition of suicide rear doors bringing the count up to 4 door sedan specifications, Frank and Demi Hinmon’s 1955 Cadillac Coupe De Ville is exceptional. With these exciting features, this Cadillac turned heads. Using a Procharger and fed with either 92 octane pump gas or racing fuel, if anyone ever sticks their foot in the gas pedal the engine is a duel-fueled 598 cubic inch Chevy big-block blown with a Procharger and fed.
Ford v Ferrari
By featuring cars from the Academy Award-winning movie Ford v Ferrari, the big event at the 68th annual Autorama is giving the glitz and glam of Hollywood another shot. From across the globe, including a showcase of the most significant hot rods of the 20th century and a lowrider invitational, the silver-screen cars joined more than 800 hot rods, customs, trucks, and motorcycles. Being developed for the sole purpose of beating Ferrari in the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Ford GT40 is by far the highlight of this movie. With the GT40s are extremely rare and very expensive, this GT40 wearing the no. 95 is apparently the real deal with claims this car is an original race car that is owned by the studio. Claimed to be in the movie wearing various colors including this green-and-white Holman and Moody livery, the look is similar to the 1966 GT40 on display at Volo Auto Museum.
