SO-CAL Speed Shop Merchandise: What's new Visit our online store

SO-CAL Forged I-Beam Dropped Axle

The latest addition, and now a cornerstone of the SO-CAL family of chassis components, is our forged dropped axle. SO-CAL’s engineering staff spent the better part of three years refining a design that takes into account the idiosyncrasies of a reproduction part that must first work with original Ford components.
Plain axles are in stock now. Drilled, chrome, and drilled/chrome versions are available December 1.

John Devine's 1955 F100

SO-CAL Speed Shop: John Devine's 1956 Truck
When we first met John Devine he was looking to build a mild pick up truck but instead his '66 Chevelle "Supercar" was put on the front burner. Once the Chevelle was finished he brought his '55 Ford F100 back out for the SO-CAL crew to do their magic. This local hauler is powered by a big block Ford and is close to being painted by SO-CAL's own Mick Jenkins in a subtle "Sea Foam" green offset with a black top.

Tom Lieb's 1929 Hiboy roadster

Bob Anderson's 1934 Coupe

SO-CAL Speed Shop: Bob Anderson 1934 Coupe
Bob Anderson brought his black primered '34 coupe to us with a certain goal in mind; make it resemble one of his favorite hot rods of all time. From the looks of the finished product we think he will be more than satisfied with the result.
