John Toohey's Ice T
After completing the Royal T in 1966, Toohey became friends with local hot rodder Dick Schuc. Schuc mentored him, learning him all he could about the trade. "The third car my dad built was a shortened Model T Touring body with a solid fabricated top," Fred Toohey told Sondre Kvipt of Kustomrama in 2020. The "Ice T" was powered by a Pontiac V8 engine and transmission from a donor car. "The custom paint was done by Jim Carmichael, a well-known custom painter. John completed his third build about 1967.
Where is it now?
