Now for sale in our Houston showroom is this sweet 1947 Ford Coupe. This very nice custom coupe has a very dark secret... In that someone put a 6.2L LS3 corvette engine in it... LS swaps are becoming the new normal in classic cars for many reasons but mostly because the reliability and performance of the LS series engines are second to none. The LS motor in this car has been through a very recent rebuild with less than 800 miles logged onto it since. The engine & 5-speed manual transmission was professionally installed the correct way with all accessories in the right places. The car is shown in a very nice & clean slate grey PPG base/clear paint finish that shows very well with no dings or dents to be found. The chrome trim & bumpers are in like new condition as well as the grills & glass. The car went through a full restoration and rebuild from 2009-2011 and has been kept indoors since never meeting a drop of rain. The paint finish is of high quality and very well done. The all new grey interior is in brand new condition. From the comfortable power seats, custom gauges in the dash, power windows, & vintage AC controls, this car is ready for the road. The fit & finish is done to a high degree on this car and it shows that care, money, and a lot of time went into this build. This does not need a single thing to start being enjoyed by its new owner. It could easily be used as a daily driver and probably could make it from coast to coast. The truck is also custom finished with the battery being relocated to it. Besides the modern drive train the car has also has its suspension upgraded and rebuilt, new bushings all the way around, disc brake upgrade on the front while drum in the rear. A new R134a AC system was installed and works very well. Options on this car include; AC (blows cold), power brakes, power steering, CD player, power windows, power seats, power locks, leather interior, & more!
