Conceived as a project to showcase their performance coatings, Jet-Hot worked with Atlanta hot rod builder Bryan Fuller of Fuller Moto. “Double Down” is the resulting 1932 Ford-based Cannonball race tribute car was built to run at the outer limits of performance. After spending a few mesmerizing minutes taking in the totality of this amazing design, you begin to take in the details and notice – it’s all-wheel-drive!
Fuller and Jet Hot wanted a vehicle that could be taken to many types of racing venues: auto-cross, ice racing, Bonneville and more. To accomplish this aggressive goal the car was hand-built with nearly 95 percent of its custom parts either from the racing world or specially fabricated. One of the most notable things about this vehicle is that it has a differential sticking out the grille shell. It is a big, cast Winter’s quick-change in the front; an independent rear unit is made from the venerable Sprint Car round models. The 576ci Kurt Urban-prepped Jon Kaase Boss 9 engine sends power to a G-Force 5-speed transmission. The aircraft-quality construction includes an all-Indy-style pushrod suspension, which required moving the Griffin radiator to the rear. Design, pivots and bearings are Indy units with billet rockers. Front coilovers and rear shocks are RideTech.
