Pictures and text by Bob Roberts

See below for photo gallery.

Bob Roberts has kindly sent a gallery of pictures taken by him whilst the build of Kev Slyfield's Pro Modified 1956 Ford Thunderbird took place at sponsor Robinson Race Cars.

Bob says ‘This car had a long gestation period starting in 2010 for one customer and ending in 2014 with another customer – Kev Slyfield.

The body in this case came from Suncoast with many small mods to suit its purpose as a Pro Mod. This chassis was one of the first fitted with the RRC double adjustable four-link brackets on the chassis. As originally built it had a sheet metal fabricated axle case which was later replaced as the engine began to make more power.

The car left the RRC workshops as a '55 but became a '56 with the porthole by the time it got to the track. Kev has had significant success in the car including MSA Pro Modified Championship in 2015 and running a five in 2019.
