The big scoop up front, massive rear wheels, and vibrant paint throughout instantly let you know this isn't a stock 1940 Ford business coupe. And all the custom details, from the comfy interior to the forward-tilt front end means you're going to love this for far more than the powerful small block under the hood.
A business coupe is the exact right place for a build like this. The long hood and long trunk give this a very sporty look. In fact, the extra space in the rear trunk allows this to really tub the rear and add extra-large rear rubber without intruding on the interior. We love the look of the '40 Ford with the teardrop headlight surrounds and deeply dipping chrome grille. You can see that extra clear on this one thanks to the deleted front bumper. More than just the vintage details, this one loves to announce it's something special from every angle. The metallic purple paint draws added attention as it radiates in the sunshine. The big hood scoop up front, the diamond-stitch vinyl running boards, and big dual exhaust tips are all about earning the Streetrod badging on the side.
You can instantly see the interior has been made for modern comfort. After all, you never got high-back bucket seats w/headrests in the 1940s. The gray cloth coordinates with the carpeting, rear seats, and custom door panels for a nice uniform appearance. There are more modern touches, like the AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input and R134a air conditioning. It's also easy to get comfortable driving this custom. The Naiser Racing steering wheel is mounted on a tilt column. Ahead of that is a full set of VDO gauges, but this doesn't include a tach, because that's mounted centrally on top of the dash for an easy view.
You just know you're going to draw plenty of attention the moment you tilt the whole front end forward on this custom Ford. So since this one is going to draw a crowd, they made sure the motor was ready for primetime. It's a tidy setup with polished components everywhere from the alternator to the smooth valve covers. More than just look awesome, there is substance behind the style. It's a 350 cubic-inch crate V8 with an upgraded four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer EPS intake, and headers feeding the H-pipe dual exhaust. It's a big power package, and the three-speed automatic transmission feeds a stout Ford 9-inch rear. Speaking of the rear, keeping those wide Mickey Thompson tires in firm contract with the ground is a four-link rear with adjustable coilovers. Add in power steering and front disc brakes, and this is a true hot rod that still has a solid feeling on the streets.
This custom Ford loves to be bold in all the best ways and still give you true comfort behind the wheel. So don't miss this deal. Call now!
