Chrisman Bonneville Coupe (1930 Model A Coupe)

331 cu. in. Chrysler V8 engine with hemispherical cylinder heads, 1940 Ford-based manual transmission with second and high gears only, 1938 Ford tubular front axle with transverse leaf spring, live rear axle, hand-operated two-wheel drum brakes.

Early California-based hot rodders had their choice of several prime locations to satisfy their quest for speed, most notably the dry lakebeds of California, including Muroc and El Mirage, or the salt flats of Bonneville. Almost perfectly flat, with an ideal surface measuring approximately 159 square miles, Utah's Bonneville Salt Flats were created by the ancient Lake Bonneville as it receded over time.

While first considered as a potential motor racing site in 1912, Bonneville was not widely used until after 1925, when a Studebaker, driven by Ab Jenkins, crossed the flats a full 10 minutes before a special excursion train. Jenkins went on to break all existing speed records in the 1930s, driving his famous 'Mormon Meteor', and over the decades thousands of speed enthusiasts followed Jenkins' example, advancing automotive development with each record attempt.

Pioneering hot rodders Art and Lloyd Chrisman settled in Compton, California during World War II, when father Everett worked at the Todd Shipyard. The boys learned about welding and fabrication directly from their father, and after the war, Everett established the Chrisman & Sons Garage, where they gained a hands-on education in car repair and construction.

The brothers were early and successful pioneers of drag racing with their famous #25 dragster, which they developed into the first drag racing car to achieve trap speeds of 140 and 180 miles per hour in the quarter-mile. Early experience gained on the dry lake beds of Southern California in the family's 1936 Ford Sedan led to a record-setting 1934 Ford Coupe that reached 140 miles per hour, leading ultimately to the record-setting 1930 Ford-based car offered here, which set records in three divisions of the Competition Coupe class at Bonneville ... auction

A most excellent thread

And yes, all real Hot Rods have a little salt flowing through their veins



And I am not a flat head fan...sue me







When you get right down to it, I am not real big on tilt steering wheels



or digital readouts



I do like my comfort though



Just the basics
