It's a nice change of pace to see traditional hot rods represented in True Street, and Sonny Smart stepped up with his '39 Ford. This is no fairgrounds cruiser though-it runs some serious ETs with a best of 9.20/146 under its belt, thanks to a 496-inch big-block Chevy with Dart 320 heads, a Weiand tunnel ram, two 1150 Dominators and a 175hp NOS Big-Shot nitrous hit. "This is a real-deal driven car," says Smart. "We drive it about 200 miles a week. It was originally a four-door sedan, but we made it a coupe. It's an all-steel stock-frame '39 Ford. The engine mounts are even stock."
