ALL STEEL W/ A FORD POWERTRAIN! 302 V8, C4 AUTO TRANS, GREAT LOOK & COMFORTABLE!
Are 1934 Fords the ultimate '30s street rod? This appealing 1934 Ford Tudor sedan certainly puts on a convincing demonstration with a wicked stance, chopped roof, and a Blue Oval powerplant. And while it was built a few years ago and shows more than 35,000 trouble-free cruising miles, it's still extremely clean and ready to hit the road at a moment's notice.
You can spot a '34 Ford a quarter-mile away simply because every single line, curve, and louver is exactly right. The smart builders know not to mess too much with a good thing, so this handsome tudor sedan (that's 2-door in Ford-speak) got a slight top chop that accentuates the rake, but not much else. Of course, the sheetmetal was properly prepped and despite miles of use, it still looks very good. Door handles were shaved, the hood sides are plain, not louvered, and there's a custom rear roll pan out back, which is the only fiberglass piece on the car. The two-tone red over silver paint has a timeless look that should look good for decades to come and they kept the graphics limited to a clean divider between the colors, a pattern that's repeated inside. Big round headlights always look best on the '34s and the black grille insert is a nice change from the usual billet. We also like the simple hood ornament and original taillights, now with blue dot lenses.
The interior is neatly but not over-wrought like so many recent rods. Simple gray tweed with vinyl trim covers the bucket seats and the door panels are dressed with the same stuff plus a slash of red fabric that echoes the graphics outside. The suicide-style doors make climbing in graceful and easy, especially with a tilt steering column to make some extra room. A beautifully finished wood dashboard holds retro-looking Stewart Warner gauges, including a trick reverse-rotation speedometer. The back seat is roomy and comfortable, so there's plenty of room for everyone on a road trip. Auxiliary switches are stashed in the header above the windshield and a Lokar shifter makes it feel suitably sporty from behind the wheel.
Those of you expecting a small block Chevy are going to be disappointed because this cool Ford uses a great-running 302 cubic inch V8. It really shouldn't be a surprise; after all, these engines are incredibly durable, very torquey, and buttery smooth, and with a massive number of performance parts available for them, it's a wonderful alternative to the same-old Brand X. The polished valve covers and air cleaner work with a 4-barrel carburetor to feed the stout V8 and it appears that the ignition system is recent. There's also a big radiator up front with a pair of electric fans, a new alternator, and a set of long-tube headers that tuck in tight to the block for good clearance. It's tied to a C4 3-speed automatic transmission and a Corvette independent rear end, so it's a great highway cruiser and the chassis was obviously set up for the road. With A-arms, coil-overs, and rack-and pinion steering, it tracks well and the glasspack-style mufflers sound aggressive without getting annoying. Classic Boyds aluminum wheels and 195/60/15 front and 215/75/15 rear radials give it the prefect hot rod stance.
A properly built car when it was first finished, this remains a very high-quality rod with a very interesting hardware list and an awesome look. Call today!
