A hot rod builder by trade, Kevin Bischoff started in on the project of making “an ugly car beautiful” 13 years ago, with the result being this completely custom ’36 Dodge known as Rampage. Working out of his shop, Kevin’s Restoration of Vancouver, Washington, Bischoff and his team chopped the car’s roof by two inches, took over five inches off the trunk back and added five inches to the bottom of the doors.
Bischoff also narrowed the grille shell and laid it back one and a half inches and laid the trunk and rear window forward. Adding to the car’s unique design are molded fenders and running boards.
This is backed by a manual transmission and a 9-inch rearend, while 5-spoke Billet Specialties Magnitude wheels and Wilwood brakes take care of the final push of power to the pavement.
In order to take the title of America’s Most Beautiful Street Rod for 2014, Rampage had to beat out four other amazing contenders, including Justin and Randy Semadini’s ’34 Dodge, Larry Carter’s ’33 Ford, Dave Hall’s ’39 Ford, and Janeen Dinkard’s ’40 Chevy.
Congratulations goes out to the Bischoffs for receiving this coveted award and we can’t wait to see the car on display in Arizona in a couple months!
