This month’s Featured Ride is a 61 year old piece of sculptured pure-bred artistic creation of automobile wonder. Terry Morris Custom Auto down in Wilsonville, Oregon worked four long years designing, developing and fine-tuning this piece of art. We at R&R NW Publication are pleased to make Mr. Dick Pedro’s 1955 Dodge Royal 2DR Custom Hardtop from Gresham, Oregon our featured ride of the Month for November 2016.
This delicious ’55 Dodge Royal 2 Dr Hardtop from the Chrysler family of fine automobiles was a unique look, back in the mid-fifties. She sports a 354 ci Hemi producing 500 plus HP with a 700 R4 four speed auto tranny on the floor for fun and a 9” Ford Rear-End. A Fatman chassis holds it all together and Wilwood Disc brakes on all four corners does a cool job slowing her down. She’s been tricked out with all the updated tricks like AC , power steering, power brakes and a super sound system. The interior has been treated to a set of Jaguar modified leather seats upfront and arm rested comfort in the back. The classic w/white tires highlight the Orange metallic wheels w/ beauty rings and a set of Spider Clusters on all four corners really bring this ride alive. The exterior of this beauty features Silver metallic lower body, Pristine black top with orange and black scalloping hi-lighting the sides and hood area with world class artist Mitch Kim adding the straight and clean line pin-stripping, bringing this piece of creative art all together like a perfectly framed master piece. Dick Pedro has owned and built several tricked out cars, trucks and street rods since his days back at Molalla High School where in Auto Shop he built a sweet little ’55 Ford two door HT that got him around the valley in the mid-sixties. He now makes his home out in the Gresham area of Portland and can usually be found at the Endless Summer Cruze-In every Wednesday out in Gresham, sponsored by the Pharaohs Street Rodders raising funds and supporting our veterans programs. Mr. Pedro has owned this fantastic Dodge Royal for over ten years and she has won her share of trophies all over the West.
