I had the pleasure to shoot this 1935 Ford at the Goodguys show last weekend in Del Mar, California. Yesterday, this beautiful machine was crowned with the Goodguys 2021 Chevrolet Performance GM Retro Iron Builder Of The Year title. Hidden underneath the hood of this Ford is actually a GM powered 6.2L LS3 engine mated to 4L60E overdrive automatic transmission controlled with a C6 Corvette shifter. This award was designed for builds that are non-GM bodied vehicles but feature a GM powerplant. Blaspheme? Not really. That is the beauty of hot rodding, anything goes. This '35 was built by Roger Burman and his shop, Lakeside Rods & Rides.

  • Extremely nice build, I just cannot respect a GM engine in a Ford. There are plenty of Ford Performance, Roush, and Shelby crate engines to choose from.

  • Putting a ls in a 35 ford is the equivalent to the pope walking out on his crowing ceremony to marilyn manson or something. As cool that it would be, it aint right.
