VERY NICE, BIG 460 V8, C6 AUTO, A/C, FORD 9", FRONT DISCS, UPGRADED INTERIOR, A+
Fat-fendered Fords like this 1948 Ford Business Coupe make for some great hot rods. With room for a potent V8 under the hood, lots of creature comforts inside, and an aggressive stance that stands out in a crowd, this cool coupe is a street rod that is polished enough to be a daily driver.
You get to choose your own adventure with this fast Ford. It comes with two sets of wheels that give it two very distinct personalities. The steelies with original hubcaps, and the pristine chrome grille make this business coupe look like an old-school moonshine runner. You also get a set of bold American Racing alloys that transform this incognito personality into a more modern looking machine. The shine of the wheels highlights the deep luster of the dark blue paint. And the bright side trim does a great job of highlighting the curvaceous body. No matter which way you choose to leave the house, this Ford plays its part correctly because the solid body and uniform gaps make everyone envious.
When this custom was built a decade ago they spared no expense on the interior (we even have the restoration receipts to prove it!) The sourcing for the black leather seats stayed within the Ford family by borrowing the front buckets from the last generation Thunderbird. With modern bolstering, even for your legs, these are long haul comfortable. Custom interior panels, provisions for a kickin' stereo, and ice-cold air conditioning will keep everyone happy, but this is truly a driver's coupe. You know it from the moment you grab the three-spoke Lecarra sports steering wheel. Plus, once you see the full VDO gauges with large center-mounted AutoMeter tach, you know there's something special under the hood for you.
It's always nice to see a performance-built FoMoCo motor under the hood of a build like this. That's a huge Mercury 460 cubic-inch V8 you see filling the engine bay. It was rebuilt with performance goodies such as a bored .030 kit, mild cam, new pistons, new valves, custom performance radiator, and a Carter 625 CFM four-barrel carburetor. We can go over the full list of upgrades if you give us a call, but you already get the picture that this one is reliably putting down some serious power. Making sure this gets to the ground is a heavy-duty C6 three-speed automatic that feeds a Ford 9-inch rear end running a versatile 3.25 ratio. But this custom build didn't just stop at the drivetrain. Take a look at the undercarriage photos, and you'll see this one looking clean and pristine in its painted blue. And in keeping with true hot rod style, the chassis has Pete & Jakes ends with a front I-beam suspension and a new rear kit that includes lower shocks and sway bar. There's even a front disc brake setup to keep you in control on the road.
So yes, this is one of those ultra custom builds where the huge investment went way beyond just looking amazing. It's the one you want to drive everyday, and with this kind of craftsmanship and features, you can! Call today!!
