STREET BEAST BODY, REBUILT 351CI WINDSOR BY FORD, VINTAGE A/C, NICE STREET ROD!
If you want attitude, few cars deliver it better than this 1934 Ford 3-window coupe. The look is iconic and arguably one of the very best designs of the 1930s, so it's no surprise that these are popular cars to build. Fortunately, it also includes a whole host of comfort and convenience features that make it a pleasure to drive, so perhaps only the look has a bit of an attitude.
No real 1934 Ford coupes were harmed in the construction of this fantastic rod. Instead, it's a Street Beasts body, entirely crafted from fiberglass around a steel support structure. As you'd expect, workmanship is quite nice, with decent gaps and ultra-smooth flanks that show zero distortions. The bright electric blue paint is only two years old, and the vivid hue means keeping a low profile is entirely impossible. That really should be no surprise considering the chopped roof, wild pinstripes, and color-matched grille shell. On the other hand, it carries neat details like King Bee headlights, scrolled door handles like the originals, and a very slick front "bumper" that offers at least a modicum of protection for the pointed grille itself. 1939 Ford taillights are a traditional look, and intricate hand-painted pinstripe work is absolutely gorgeous, done by Jay C, who has earned a spot in the Pinstriping Hall of Fame. And with only about 574 shakedown miles on the build, everything is in exemplary, freshly-finished condition.
Pull open one of the suicide-style doors and you'll be blown away by the custom-stitched black cloth interior. The buckets are from a Fox-body Mustang, but you'll hardly recognize them as they've been extensively modified. They're covered in handsome black cloth with aggressive side bolsters that hold you in place like Velcro, and the door panels have been custom crafted to match. Thick carpets on the floors are luxurious and help control noise and heat, while the headliner is taut and well-installed. The dash is a simple flat panel that replicates the shape of the original 1934 Ford piece, and offers a set of white-faced Dolphin gauges and more custom pinstripe work. Hidden vents for the Vintage Air HVAC system keep it looking tidy and the Blaupunkt AM/FM/CD stereo is installed in its own custom housing under the dash. A bit of storage behind the seats joins a fully upholstered trunk in making this a car built for road trips.
The engine is a 351 cubic inch Ford Windsor V8 with a few performance upgrades. As usual, we're thrilled to see a Ford in a Ford, and there's no reason you can't have fun with this strong-running small block. It's actually a Ford rebuild, so it should be bulletproof, and with new wiring, a Davis Unified Ignition system, ceramic-coated shorty headers, and a big four-barrel carburetor, it's ready to rock. The built C6 3-speed automatic transmission will handle the horsepower, so reliability is a non-issue, and it cruises effortlessly at supra-legal speeds thanks to 3.55 gears in the Mustang-spec 8.8-inch rear end. The frame is functional but not detailed for show, and features a custom A-arm front suspension with disc brakes, while out back there's a Mustang 4-link setup. The exhaust features throaty mufflers and stainless tips that just barely peek out from under the running boards on either side. And for that perfect hi-boy stance, big-n-little radials are wrapped around chrome Torque Thrust wheels.
Al attitude, no hassles, this '34 Ford packs a traditional look and modern comfort. Call today!
