LOADED STREETBEAST 3-WINDOW, FRESH BUILD, 350 V8, AUTO, FRONT DISC, LEATHER, A/C
This 1934 Ford 3-window coupe is a great take on one of the most popular shapes of all time. Few other cars capture the look of speed and impeccable styling of the 1934 Ford coupe, and it's great to see what a cool color combination can do on an old favorite.
The body is from Street Beasts and is a pretty good duplicate of the timeless 1934 Ford 3-window coupe. Built not too long ago, it still shows extremely well and is instantly recognizable to anyone who has opened a car magazine. Very nicely finished, it shows good panel gaps, the hood fits well, and the fiberglass was properly prepped before paint. And speaking of paint, the metallic orange over black combination is stunning, with a nice gloss that makes it stand out in a crowd. Someone clearly spent a ton of time block sanding the body to get the gelcoat this flat and smooth, and the effort has paid off. LED taillights that do a pretty good approximation of 1939 Ford teardrops are a traditional touch and a billet grille insert, chrome headlights with crystal clear lenses, and cool bullet-shaped mirrors on the suicide doors make it look up-to-date.
While a lot of these cars make due with chairs from a late-model, this one sports stunning full-custom leather driver's compartment that is both retro and modern at the same time. The pleated door panels and seats are definitely hallmarks of early hot rodding interior design, but the two-tone leather, adjustable backrests, and fat steering wheel on a tilt column are all right up to date. Simple white-faced Dolphin gauges are arrayed ahead of the driver, keeping a close eye on all the engine's vitals, and the dash has bene sculpted to look a lot like the original 1934 Ford. Chrome eyeball vents have been installed for the A/C system, and a vintage-looking Lokar shifter manages the 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission underneath. And lest you think that there were budget cuts on the build, check out the trunk, which is just as beautifully finished.
Driving is easy when power is supplied by a 350 cubic inch Chevy V8. For any rod you're going to drive, reliability is paramount, so a simple, proven combination is always best, which means an Edelbrock carburetor and intake, an oversized radiator, and a set of block-hugging headers. There's lots of chrome on hand for those of you who like popping the hood at shows, but it doesn't get in the way of going down the road. The custom exhaust system uses Flowmaster mufflers and turn-downs just ahead of the rear axle, which is a Ford 8.8-inch axle and suspension setup. The front suspension is typical Mustang II hot rod fare, complete with disc brakes and power rack-and-pinion steering for easy handling. A custom gas tank hangs out back and it rolls on spiffy Torque Thrust-style wheels with 205/55/15 front and 235/60/17 rear radials.
This rod will create instant friendships among people who see it and it remains a great-driving machine that is built to cruise. If you're looking for a great car to enjoy at shows and on the road, here it is. Call today!
