Team to source parts from famed Hershey AACA swap meet weekend to transform rolling chassis into a driving classic
WHAT: The team of classic car experts from Hagerty are back for their second “Swap to Street” challenge. With only 100 hours on the clock, the team of four plan to build a 1930 Ford Model A from the frame up using parts sourced entirely at this week’s AACA Hershey Fall Meet and Swap Meet. They will then drive the car on a 700-mile journey back to their headquarters in Traverse City, MI. After successfully rebuilding a 1946 Ford pickup last year in their first “Swap to Street” challenge, Hagerty is upping the ante this year. While last year’s pickup came with a dilapidated cab and a few other parts, this year’s vehicle is nothing but the rolling chassis.
WHY: To challenge themselves as the company for “People Who Love Cars,” while demonstrating to viewers how approachable the collector car hobby can be.
WHO: Hagerty classic car experts Davin Reckow, Brad Phillips, Randy Clouse and Brett Lirones
