Bobby Meeks would become one of the foremost American Hot Rod engine builders of all time, as a chief mechanic for famed auto parts designer Vic Edelbrock. He was considered as the first Ford flathead guru. Carrying out any chore Vic needed accomplished, he would do things like testing engines that GM.com would bring to Vic. Meeks headed up his racing team turning out note-worthy record-breakers such as the Pierson Brothers coupe and Alex Xydias So-cal stream-liner in 1949. He believed “rules are made to be broken”; so he experimented with high-octane fuels, but would not stop there. He became inquisitive of Nitromethane, spending considerable effort and innovation in disguising it so competitors woudn’t know what was giving him the increase in speed; giving more reason for the Mechanical Genius that he was gifted with. As one of the most prolific and successful engine builders in hot rod history, Bobby Meeks stands with the best of them when it comes to ingenuity. As Vic Edelbrock Sr’s protégé and head wrench, he is responsible for turning out Mechanical wonders like our 32′ Ford Roadster Hot Rod Pedal Car.
Bob McGees 32 highboy currently occupies a spot in the Bruce Meyer wing of the Petersen Automotive Museum. The 32 Deuce has a lot of “firsts” under it’s belt. It was the first Deuce highboy roadster to appear on the cover of Hot Rod magazine, October of 1948. It originally ran a 21 stud 34′ Ford flathead without water pumps, but used a Thermo-flow cooling system. His powerplant boasted the ported and relieved V-8, running dual Stromberg 97′s on a Burns manifold, Federal Mogul bronze heads, a Spalding Zephyr-type ignition, a Pete Bertrand cam, with a Filcoolator oil cleaner. Bob’s highboy had plenty of eye appeal, becoming the first subject in Hot Rod magazine as a tradition- using a cutaway. Another first for Bob among many, being ahead of the curve with his bodywork. Some of his standards were – filled and peaked grille shell behind a V’d spreader bar, filled cowl vent, three-piece louvered hood, shaved handles, a unique lengthened trunklid, with the lower panel blended into it, and modified hidden door hinges as well.

Few have contributed to Hot Roddin in such an enduring degree- that person is Vic Edelbrock Sr. He had a natural talent for mechanics, with his first job as an Auto Mechanic. Vic’s first 32′ Ford Roadster, catipulted him into the Hot Rod World, inspiring the design and fabrication of Edelbrock’s first intake manifold, called the “Slingshot”. His Roadster became the “Testing Ground” for newly developed products, like the cast iron “Denver” cylinder heads- later filled and milled for increased compression, gaining even more power. Coupled with the numerous requests for his twin carb manifold, launched him into opening his own Performance Parts Business. Vic was known for the fast flat-head Fords. In the 50′s Edelbrock- equipped cars continued to dominate. Don Waite with Edelbrock and Meek’s help, built a 304 c.i. flat-head for a 1927 Model-T Roadster called “The Edelbrock Special”; Equipped with Edelbrock 4-carb intake, heads and pistons. Using nitro-methane, the 1927 Model-T clocked 192 mph on the Salt Flats. In 1958, Vic developed a breakthrough- when he managed an “Industry First” by getting one horsepower-per-cubic-inch from a 283 cid small block Chevy with the new Cross Ram Manifold. Today this multi-million dollar business operates out of Torrance and San Jacinto, Ca., with “Proven Performance” continuing with high standards, still equipping Quality cars and Roadsters symbolized by this stunning 32′ Hot Rod Pedal Car .
