Miikka Salminen's 1936 Dodge
1936 Dodge Coupe owned and restyled by Miikka Salminen of Finland. Miikka chopped the top, nosed, decked and shaved the body himself, while Timo Hersti of Hersti AutoShop massaged the nose to accept a 1937 LaSalle grille. 1940 Chevrolet headlights were sunken down to the fenders up front, while 1939 Ford taillights were installed in the rear. Timo Hersti painted the body and modified the chassis and suspension on the car as well. The interior was upholstered by Verhoomo Prima and Lasse Vänttinen, and it featured a pearl finished 1948 Dodge steering wheel by PearlCraft in Australia. The gauges and gauge panel is Stewart Warner. A Chevrolet 350 V8 and a Turbo Hydramatic 350 automatic transmission was installed for a more reliable drive. In March of 2013 Miikka's coupe was shown at the Custom Motor Show in Elmia, Sweden.
