With its upgraded small block V8 power, an upgraded suspension, a leather-lined A/C interior, and plenty of other thoughtful details, this 1938 Ford Business Coupe gives you custom street machine style wrapped in an everyday easy kind of appeal.
The fluid lines and a rounded nose on a '38 Ford give it a timeless style, and it's good to have it finished in a sleek red. There's a good luster from a modern respray that covers this all-steel body. It properly highlights the fenders, hood, and long trunk that's the hallmark of a business coupe. But this was built to be a street machine, and so you have an overall finish that makes the kind of coupe that's easy to drive. After all, the large exhaust tips, blue-dot tail lights, polished 15-inch wheels, and forward-leaning stance are all part of a car that deserves to be out on the streets every Saturday night. And even with the custom style, this one keeps the classic look you love with the teardrop headlights, two-piece rear glass, and a terrifically straight full-length trim line that wraps around the front end. It makes for a total package that gives you a distinctive custom that knows how to respect its history.
The moment you open the door, you can see that the old 1930s-style interior has been replaced with a full custom and comfy setup. That means two late-model bucket seats with proper headrests for all-day comfort, and they even power adjust to the ideal position. The two-tone gray leather has door panels to match, and it also sets the tone for the carpeting, headliner, and trunk. So you have a full uniform presentation. There are nice extras for a comfortable cruiser like cold-blowing air conditioning and an AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input. Plus, the banjo-style sports steering wheel and VDO gauge package make for a good driver's car.
Under the hood is a 302 cubic-inch V8. It's nice to have a classic ford with proper blue oval power, and the tidy presentation makes it easy to show off. There are good upgrades like a Holley Powercharger air cleaner assembly, a Holley four-barrel carburetor, and an aluminum intake. You'll also spot good supporting components, like an aluminum radiator w/electric fan, a Mallory ignition, and an Optima red top battery. As you look underneath, you'll see a fully upgraded suspension, including a Mustang II front end (possibly with Heidts components.) And the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front discs make for a solid all-around driver.
Complete with the build receipts, this is the classic Ford that's built to cruise near or far in comfort. It makes for a complete and thoughtful build that you know will be terrific to take home. Call today!!!
