Robby built his ’31 Ford Tudor sedan almost entirely by hand, crafting an all-aluminum body and fuel tank. The interior is aluminum too, but the frame is solid steel — made of sheet and angle iron of various thicknesses. The Ford is powered by a 21cc 2-stroke gas engine. The front axle is solid in proper hot rod fashion, while the rear end is fully independent, and it wears staggered-size tires with a rugged offroad-capable tread. He dedicated the project to his grandmother and inscribed the interior with her name.
