Fat-fendered Fords like this 1947 Ford Coupe make for some great
customs. With room for a potent V8 under the hood, lots of creature
comforts inside (including A/C), and an aggressive stance with
flames in the paint, this is a very cool street machine.
Bold blue paint is the perfect canvas for all the custom work. You
distinctly see the flames that start behind the front wheels and
burns hot all the way through the doorline. And as you dig deeper,
you'll spot tri-color pinstriping, and even the "Blue By U"
nickname artfully added to the paint. It has an awesome classic
custom look with the headlights and the license plate panel
frenched for a smooth design. Plus, the wraparound bumpers, grille,
and full-length trim give you that ideal look of '40s chrome. And
everything from the Eagle Alloy wheels to the louvered hood give
this the kind of sporty detail that make these coupes sooooo
Inside is a nice mix of vintage style and all the right upgrades.
For example, the seats have a classic look and a nice two-tone
cloth pattern that's continues on the door panels. But those bright
blue seatbelts are a nice addition that coordinate with the
exterior-matching blue dash. The full dashboard still has the
classic symmetrical look with plenty of brightwork. Even the
original AM radio is still on display. But your real driving tunes
are coming from the Alpine AM/FM/cassette stereo hidden in the
glovebox. And the addition of modern R134a air conditioning means
everyone stays comfortable riding in your '47. But the best treats
are reserved just for you. The driver gets a wood and chrome
banjo-style sports steering wheel on a tilt column. Beyond that,
the classic gauges have been upgraded to crisp VDO units, including
a large speedo and tach.
Under the hood, the smooth painted firewall and all those polished
components on the motor means this is one you'll be proud to show
off. And beyond the style is the substance of a 350 cubic-inch
crate V8. It looks good with newer wires, good belts and a large
electric fan. Plus, this V8 inhales deeply with an Edelbrock
four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake. It exhales with a
sweet sound out of the dual exhaust. The full package fires up
nicely, and this one was built to cruise. That's why you also have
features like power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission,
and power brakes w/discs up front.
The sale comes complete with restoration photos, build receipts,
and a long history of maintenance records. This cool Ford coupe
delivers looks, power, and comfort, so it's exactly what you want.
