STREETROD ROADSTER PICK-UP, CORVETTE POWERTRAIN, 4-WHEEL DISCS, CUSTOM BUILD!!
Some of our favorite vehicles are the "could have beens," that is, cars that could have been built back in the day, but the factory never quite got around to it. Of course, Ford was building pickup trucks in 1934, but they didn't look nearly as gorgeous as this one with its passenger-car front end and they definitely weren't doing roadster pickups, making this one doubly cool.
Few will argue that the '34 Ford wasn't a triumph of design, but the pickup trucks that year weren't so lucky as to get the gorgeous front-end sheetmetal of their civilian siblings. So some enterprising soul took it upon himself to create what might just be the best-looking '30s pickup we've ever seen. It's a Paul's fiberglass body with a steel grill and hood, but the look is instantly recognizable and has all the style that you see on the 3-window coupes. Flowing fenders, suicide doors, and that deeply Vee'd grille all remain iconic pieces of rodding history. Finish quality is decent all around with a few signs of use, but the vivid red paint and shiny details make this an easy car to love. It's got a traditional roadster windshield with wind wings, large chrome headlights that look great, and smoothed running boards that enhance the long, flowing fender lines. The bed is fabricated from oak and offers a beautifully finished floor with an actual safety glass window to the trick suspension underneath and it uses '39 Ford taillights for a popular hot-rod look.
Gray fabric makes for a comfortable interior, with or without the top in place, and the decidedly modern look of the seats is contrasted with the vintage instrument panel. Those chairs are ultra-comfortable Recaros and the rest of the interior has been neatly upholstered to match. Slightly darker carpets add some contrast and the shifter and E-brake both offer custom-stitched leather boots for a well-finished presentation. A collection of Classic Instruments gauges are clustered in front of the driver with a tach right in the middle. A tilt column with a billet wheel makes it easy to get comfortable in the cozy roadster pickup and it even uses a vintage 1934 Ford spoon-type accelerator pedal for authenticity. The canvas-covered top is a lift-off unit that does a pretty convincing impersonation of a folding top and there are provisions in the bed for storing the top so you can take it with you.
350 cubic inches of Chevy V8 provides the performance and the nicely dressed small block fits so neatly under the hood that you'd think it was born there. Wearing body-colored paint on the block and lots of billet aluminum and chrome, it's worthwhile to open the hood whenever possible and thanks to an Edelbrock intake and carburetor, and block-hugging headers, it makes for entertaining performance, too. The front suspension is a traditional I-beam with leaf spring and radius rods, while the rear is an independent setup with another transverse leaf spring. In between, there's a TH400 3-speed automatic transmission and a lot more chrome and polished stainless componentry. It's got a fantastic hot rod rake which is made even more effective with staggered Bonspeed aluminum wheels wearing 215/40/18 front and 275/35/20 rear performance radials.
You can see the appeal of such a machine and the execution and build quality on this one mean that you can drive it without worries. Call today!
