1934 Chevy Roadster Named Goodguys 2022 Street Rod Of The Year: Video8
A unique 1934 Chevy Roadster has won the Goodguys 2022 Classic Instruments Street Rod of the Year award, an annual award handed to the most impressive custom hot rod that was presented at one of the American car show organizer’s various events.
Goodguys held its annual awards at the 24th Summit Racing Nationals presented by PPG, which is the largest event the company puts on each year. The 1934 Chevy Roadster that received its Street Rod of the Year designation is the result of a seven-year project helmed by owner Jeff Breault. A died-in-the-wool GM enthusiast, Breault wanted to create a custom roadster that could compete with the best hot rods America has to offer at classic car shows, the vast majority of which are Fords.
“When I decided to build a roadster, it had to be a Chevy,” Jeff told Fuel Curve, the official blog and media arm of Goodguys, going on to explain how he came to acquire his rare 1934 Roadster. “At the time, I didn’t realize that Chevrolet didn’t build many (1,800 in the U.S.) and that there were virtually none to be found. Luck shined on me and I found this car, number 29 of 31 built in 1934 by Holden in Australia.”
This Roadster Shop build rides on a custom chassis with independent front suspension and a four-link rear setup, along with staggered 16-inch front wheels and 18-inch rear wheels. Stopping power comes from a complete Wilwood big brake setup, while power comes from a 650-horsepower Small Block built by Concord, North Carolina-based shop Automotive Specialists, which routes power to the rear wheels through a Tremec six-speed manual transmission. A classy cabin with bolstered retro-style seats, a blue cueball shift knob, Classic Instruments dials, and matching blue carpets rounds out this stunning build.

How do I get one?
Come up with 7 figures and they will build one but not the same
Someone please make a kit version of this car.
Not a fan of the wheels and tires. Sorry. A nice simple set of good old Cragar style chrome wheels with some fat Goodyears would be my choice. Just my humble comment from an old hot rodder. Otherwise it’s awesome, especially being a relatively rare Chevy.
I have a set of cragars old a 1946 dodge pickup. It has 255R70/15 tires on the back but I’m not sure what tires to put on the front R60’s or R70’s about 225 or 235? Any suggestions? Thanks
I had a 31 Chev. My mother gave it away while I was in Vietnam.
My father sold 71 Z/28 for a freezer. Thanks, Dad
