This original steel body 1929 Ford 2 Door Sedan is a cherry Street Rod and is finished with Canary Yellow paint and a cream vinyl interior with pile carpet light Beige color.
The car was purchased in 1997 in Fairfax Virginia and car was just a shell project. The vehicle was just that - a shell. There was nothing inside the vehicle including no wiring, seats or dashboard. The vehicle was put together to make sure everything fit right and had straight lines. After a complete fit, the vehicle was taken apart and pieces were taken to the body paint shop and all the cracks and edges were painted with the Carny Yellow base coat. This was done to make sure there were no paint gaps when the fenders, running boards, hood, and other body parts were put back together. After the body was together the car was taken back to the body paint shop for the base coat and two coats of clear coat.
As the car was being put together the owner found out the engine was froze up and he replaced it with a new 350ci Chevrolet V8 Goodwrench engine. A late model 1986 tune port injection (TPI) was installed in the vehicle. This fuel injection computer driven Street Rod provides you no more pumping on pedal to get the carburetor full of fuel. Just turn the key and the computer does the rest for you. The computer is located under the passenger seat for easy access to the code reader plug for easy diagnostics in event of a problem. An addition engine warning light is installed on the dash for easy viewing.
This Street Rod is a real cruiser. When 40 MPH is reached the computer shifts the 700R4 transmission in to overdrive for a smooth ride.
Talk about chrome – this Street Rod has chrome, chrome, chrome and more chrome. There is lots of chrome or polished items in the interior, body, under carriage, and engine.
