STUNNING METALLIC & PEARL PAINT, LEATHER & SUEDE INTERIOR, 383 CRATE, 700R4, A/C
The 1934 Ford 3-window coupe might just be the most perfectly-proportioned hot rod ever designed. Just look at the curves on this brilliant metallic red example, the raked and chopped top, and the smooth taper of the fenders. This is definitely a car that everyone can love.
The body is fiberglass, but you already knew that, right? No 80-year-old steel turns out this well and looks so tidy, not at this price! Even so, the look is ideal, with just enough rake to it to give it an attitude. The full-fendered Ford positively glows in the sunlight thanks to a lot of metallic and pearl in the custom finish, which is show-quality throughout and is the kind of paint that wins trophies at big shows. Body-colored running boards make it look more contemporary, and almost all the chrome trim has been shaved save for the King Bee style headlights up front and the beautifully finished grille. 1939 Ford taillights give it a traditional look and the center-mounted gas filler cap is an interesting addition that is a lot more practical than stuffing it in the trunk like most rods. The fit of the bodywork is quite good and with a steel hood, the important parts are still easy to access.
The interior is just as well finished, with handsome leather and suede bucket seats and beautifully sculpted door panels. Thick carpets help control noise and heat, so this Ford feels a lot more substantial than it would have in 1934 and all the amenities are included. You'll note that the custom dash was painted to match the body then filled with retro-styled Vintage gauges, and there's a custom lower console with handy storage compartments. The Vintage Air A/C system is neatly integrated into the lower dash so it doesn't stand out and there's a custom housing for the AM/FM/CD stereo system. Add features like the tilt column, power windows and locks, and a billet steering wheel, you have a car that's built to cruise yet still retains the flair of the original design. A large fully upholstered trunk makes it practical, too; just imagine taking your next road trip in this awesome coupe!
It's ready to go thanks to a 383 cubic inch crate engine from GM Performance Parts. Topped by an Edelbrock high-rise intake and Holley carburetor, it's a torque-happy small block that makes this coupe feel legitimately quick on the street. It's packed pretty tightly into the engine bay, but plenty of chrome and painted details make it look super-sanitary and with just 5088 miles on the build, it's quite fresh. Accessories are managed by a serpentine belt drive system and block-hugging headers are bolted to a great-sounding dual exhaust system with turn-downs just under the rear axle. A 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission spins a Ford 8.8-inch rear that looks to have been borrowed from a late-model Mustang. The front suspension is A-arms and coil-overs, while out back coil springs assisted by air shocks keep it level. The raked stance comes from the rolling stock as much as the suspension, with staggered 205/60/15 front and 295/50/15 rear radials on chrome Torque Thrust-style wheels.
This is a really impressive rod that's freshly finished and ready to enjoy. Low miles, a great build, and a classic look, all at a very reasonable price. Call today!
