Dubbed Thunderbolt, the torpedo-bodied, dual-cowl, dual-windshield 1928 Rolls-Royce roadster had a tangible presence, even when its 27-liter Rolls-Royce Meteor V-12 was silent. On Saturday, August 16, Thunderbolt proved that truly unique street rods have a market of their own, selling at a fee-inclusive price of $187,000. The creation of the car’s new bodywork was entrusted to Fort Lauderdale boat restorer CF Boats, and everything from the windshield back was built from scratch. Teak wood was used to form the torpedo body, and red leather was chosen for front and rear seat upholstery. In choosing the gauges for Thunderbolt’s cockpit, J.P. went to great lengths to ensure both functionality and a period-correct look. The result is a hot rod of the finest order, in the spirit of the Blastolene Brothers.
