"SPLITT DECISION" BY THE ONE AND DEFINITELY ONLY, MR CLIFFORD HOAD . . . . 440 CUBIC INCHES OF MOPAR MUSCLE UP FRONT OF A T-BUCKET . . . . POWER TO WEIGHT RATIO WAS NEVER GOING TO BE A PROBLEM WITH THIS JIGGER . . . . SOME WICKED FOOTAGE FROM THE 'RED' SIDE OF THE SPLITTER, DIG THE HAND CRAFTED LESS THAN ROUND STEERING WHEEL !!!
I've blurbed this up on several occasions since Christmas last, this legit sixties show rod, a la Tommy Ivo, has been essentially put together by one bloke over nearly twenty years, one man's vision that never faltered and never failed, so many hand fabbed parts, so many obsessed over hand touches, so much that is unique to this bucket of beautiful . . . . and so much grunt up the front, the 440 came from his Road Runner that he wrote off back in '97 in the wet on the highway, gave her a stab on the long pedal and, surprise-surprise, the fucker broke traction between the blacktop and the old Poly-Glass radials, chucking it all sideways and upside-down into the median strip . . . . thank fuck Cliffy survived to tell the tale, the car was trashed but the tranny and donk were mercifully unscathed, from that moment on, he knew he had the motor-vation for Splitt Decision well and truly sorted.
