Feature Car of the Month

1956-Ford-Victoria

What do you call a guy that was at the Bor-A-Car Company in Portland and worked in the boring, stroking and blue-printing engines department for about 16 years? Add on six more years at Halsey Automotive, plus five more years at Freightliner Corporation and you have a guy who has worked on just about every type of automotive engine known to man. Give this guy a name like Jake Schonneker, who makes his home in Carver, Oregon and you have just found the proud owner of R&R NW Publications Featured Care of the Month for November 2015.

This delicious 1956 Meadow Mist Green and Colonial White Ford Victoria, sports a later model 302 cubic inch engine for power, with an AOD tranny and a stock rear-end. Add on a custom rolled and pleated white leather interior by Darrell’s Upholstery and you’re on your way to a gorgeous custom ‘56 Ford.
Those torque thrust mag wheels on all four corners top this baby off and make her a real winner whereever she shows.

Jake has built and or owned and worked on 25 to 30 custom cars and trucks in his active 72 years, including a ’23 “T” Bucket to a ’54 center post coupe, to a ’41 Ford PU plus, 7 or 8 ’55 & ’56 Ford F100 Pick-ups. He’s had them all. He is still first to admit his three favorite rides of all time are the 1957 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible, (they on built 618 of them in 57), a fuel injected dream ride that had it all. #2, was a 69 Mustang Mach 1 with a 428 Cobra Jet for power and #3, is our R&R NW Feature Car of the Month for November, Jake’s ’56 Ford Victoria.

Feature Car of the Month

This delicious 1933 Ford Model 40 Tudor Sedan is just about as perfect an example of what a World Class True Street Rod is all about. Featuring a real “Henry Ford” All Steel Body and Fenders, an all Ford Powered 351 Winsor Summit Ford Racing Package backed up with a Summit Street Fighter C-4 Auto-Tran with  shifter and topped off with a 9” Ford  rear-end. The proud owners of this Fabulous Ford are Larry and Brian Weber a father and son team that never let a speck of dust or a blade of grass stay on their immaculate little Ford very long. In addition to the all Ford sparkle above she sports a 4” TCI dropped front-end, power front Disc brakes, Vintage Air and a quality Ultra-Leather Silver White custom  interior that is to die for. The exterior color is also all Ford from a 2007 Ford GT40 “Tungsten Grey Metallic” finished off with the special touches from Mitch Kim’s Pin Stripping Creative Artistry. This gorgeous Rod is wearing 15” Chromed polished Billet Wheels on the Front with Knock offs and 17” on the rear creating just the right stance on this World Class Beauty. The Weber Brian is one of those Adobe Data Center Managers and the Weber Larry is a member of the Teaching Team at George Fox University in the College of Education. The last I heard Larry still makes his home in Damascus, Oregon while Brian lives in Bethany, Oregon.
We at R&R NW Publication are proud and honored to make the Weber Boys 1933 Ford World Class Street Rod our Featured Car of the Month for July 2015.
