Matt Taylor's 1927 Dodge
1927 Dodge roadster owned and restyled by Dragoons car club member Matt Taylor of Concord, California. Named "The Fool's Goldster," Matt's roadster was built on a budget. It features a kicked up and Z'd frame, a small block Chevrolet engine, and a heavily massaged and channeled Dodge Brothers body. A custom white tuck and roll interior was made by Bob Divine at Divine's Custom Interiors. The steering wheel was based of a Dodge Polara steering wheel. The yellow and Murano Pearl paintjob was applied by Art Himsl. Completed in 2017, the car rolled on steelies that were dressed up with 1956 Mercury hubcaps that Matt fit with Richard Zocchi bullets.
George Barris Kustom D’Elegance
In January of 2017, Matt's roadster was one of the 13 contenders for the America's Most Beautiful Roadster award at the 2017 Grand National Roadster Show. It did not win the AMBR Award, but it took home the George Barris Kustom D’Elegance Award.
