Arguably one of the most famous 1934 Ford hot rods of all time, Alex Xydias’ So-Cal coupe was as technologically advanced as it was beautiful. Alex had built a reputation for constructing well-engineered race cars and his workmanship had other competitors raising their own standards. Despite its radical appearance, much of the car was 1934 Ford, including the frame, front axle, and steering. However concealed beneath its flat hood was a GMC 4-71 Roots supercharger, attached directly to the crankshaft of the 48 Merc flathead, rather than using a belt drive. As soon as the coupe rolled off the trailer, it began setting SCTA records, appearing on the cover of Hot Rod magazine in 1954.
Reproduced in striking So-Cal Speed Shop livery, the lavish detail this tribute from ACME will astound you. Most impressive is the correctly hinged hood which can open either side to reveal the flathead Ford V8, complete with Ardun heads and front mounted supercharger. Signature items like the Kurtis nosepiece and machine turned wheel covers are accurately portrayed, along with the full belly pan and a gap just big enough to spot the quick-change centre. Turn the functioning exterior door handles to inspect the period correct race interior, then remove the decklid for access to the fuel tank and rear end. With a production number of just over 700 pieces, this unique diecast collectable leaves little to be desired.
