This 1934 Ford Truck streetrod has its own version of cool. The
stance and the V8 growl are instant indicators that this is no farm
truck. And as you dig deeper into the detail, it only gets
Lovers of patina know how special this is. The paint not only has
the appearance of aged to perfection, but it even feels that way,
too. This really has that special worn-in feeling, right down to
the wood slats in the bed. But take a closer look. The hood gives
you a peek at serious V8 power, and the fiberglass fenders and
classic-style wheel/hubcaps hide more modern tires. Plus, that
icebox in the bed is actually the housing for the battery for
better weight distribution. Oh yeah, there's something much more
going on here than meets the eye.
Inside, this shows off the right street machine attitude. The
classic truck look is upgraded with diamond-stitched seating and
side panels. Plus aluminum handles and a Lokar shifter add flair.
And you get to slip behind a classic-style wood-rimmed steering
wheel, and beyond that, a custom-color Dolphin gauge package offers
upgraded info while have cool exterior-matching color.
While there are a few hints of flair inside and out, the engine bay
really loves to shine the most. The ribbed valve covers, matching
air topper, polished brake booster, and much more have a great
total presentation. Beyond the style is the substance of a mighty
289 cubic-inch V8, and we all love blue oval power in a
classic-style Ford. This motor is enhanced with an Edelbrock
four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer intake, and shorty
headers that connect to a rumbling dual exhaust. This V8 feeds a
three-speed automatic transmission on its way to a stout Ford
9-inch rear. As you look at the undercarriage photos, you'll spot
great driving features like the upgraded independent front
suspension and four-wheel disc brakes.
This is the cool street machine that's secretly rewarding. So if
you know how cool patina is, then you know how hot this deal is.
