HIGH-END 3-WINDOW BUILD, ZZ4 CRATE 350, 700R4, 4 DISCS, COILOVERS, A/C, LEATHER!
This 1934 Ford 3-window coupe is all about details. At first glance, yes, it's an awesome and highly desirable Downs body with awesome black paint. Then you dig a little deeper and see all the little tricks and upgrades that went into the build, including a ZZ4 crate motor and all the creature comforts, and that's where you'll really be impressed.
The body is fiberglass, and again it doesn't get any better than Downs. It already incorporates a chopped top, so this car has a cool rake to it that matches what rodders have been doing since the '40s. A set of full fenders accurately replicate the originals, and most of the original protrusions have been shaved, including the hinges, cowl lights, and door handles, so it looks incredibly sleek. And speaking of paint, the finish on this one is nicely done, with great gloss and a depth to the paint that makes this car really pop in the sunlight, and with just 6,820 miles on the build, it still looks extremely fresh. The license plate has been frenched into the rear roll pan, flanked by a set of original-looking taillights with blue-dot lenses. Up front, there's a beautiful chrome grille along with traditional King Bee headlights and a correct dipped bumper, so it has a very traditional look.
Outfitted in tan leather and fabric, the interior is comfortable and inviting, and brings an OEM level of fit and finish to a street rod, something we don't see that often. Reclining buckets make the most of the coupe's interior space, leaving it comfortable even for guys over six feet tall, and the sculpted contours are good for long road trips. Tan leather has also been used on the door panels and headliner, with cool embossed inserts to add interest, as well as billet hardware. Power windows and locks are included, as well as a tilt steering column to help you get comfortable behind the wheel. Traditional-looking VDO gauges have been nestled into the center of the dash in a seamless way and a custom panel underneath houses secondary controls and the Vintage Air HVAC system. There's also an AM/FM/CD stereo system that sounds great thanks to lots of sound deadening materials, and the trunk opens with the flick of a switch, revealing a fully upholstered cargo bay.
Delivering on the car's looks is a 350 cubic inch Chevy ZZ4 crate motor topped by a 4-barrel carburetor on an aluminum intake manifold. With plenty of dress-up gear, it's got the right hot rod look without affecting functionality, and despite being driven, it remains bright and clean. Wiring and plumbing is thoughtfully done, and block-hugging headers dump into a beautifully fabricated exhaust system with mufflers that aren't too loud and aren't too soft. It rides on a Mustang II independent front end with coil-overs disc brakes, and a Ford 9-inch out back hanging on a 4-link with more coil overs and disc brakes. Spectacular Billet Specialties polished aluminum wheels and low-profile performance tires are fitted, filling the wheel wells for an up-to-date look that still has a traditional vibe.
This is an extremely well-built and thoughtfully crafted rod that captures the clean look of traditional hot rods and adds big doses of performance and comfort. Call today!
