There has been a been investment in style, comfort, and V8 power in
this 1940 Ford Business Coupe turned Streetrod to create an
all-around awesome build. So look over every inch - from the A/C
interior to the custom undercarriage - to discover a truly stunning
machine wrapped in Henry Ford steel.
We love these business coupes because they give us the classic look
of a sharply pointed front end, running boards, and the long trunk
large enough for the full salesman's kit. But while this one is
vintage, right down to the gleaming brightwork package, there's
also something much more. The white paint glows from a high-quality
investment. It means this car radiates the moment you take it out
in the sunlight, and it also makes for a great backdrop for the
custom stripe package. The purple and turquoise run the full-length
of this long business coupe with the kind of vibrant style that
announces this is a true street machine. There are even more great
details, like the Bugs Bunny custom graphic on the rear, hint of
turquoise on the wheels, and those extra meaty rear tires.
Open the doors to reveal a full custom presentation. The exterior
white returns, and joined by tan accents for a tasteful two-tone.
In fact, the colors are so thoughtfully intertwined that you see
cool details, like how the white is used for piping on the tan
carpeting. There are even ostrich-style inserts on the seats and
doors. You have all the best amenities like power windows, cup
holders, an AM/FM/HD/CD stereo with iPod connectivity, and R134a
air conditioning. And those dual bucket seats were borrowed from a
Mercedes. So they feel great and power adjust to your ideal
position. More than just look amazing, this is a full driver's
machine with a leather and chrome sports steering wheel, a tilt
column, and a full set of gauges dominating the dash.
The engine bay has been done to a show-worthy standard.
Ultra-smooth inner walls funnel your attention to the V8 in the
middle. And this motor is nicely dressed with plenty of polished
components, ribbed valve covers, and a coordinating classic air
grabber. This 350 cubic-inch crate V8 inhales deeply through a
Holley four-barrel carburetor and upgraded intake. It exhales with
a sweet sound from the dual exhaust featuring Flowmaster mufflers
and wide Pypes tips. There are also the right supporting
components, like a new alternator and a large aluminum radiator
w/electric fan. This is a strong-running package, and the consignor
even loves to talk about taking this to cars shows in neighboring
states. That's because this is a solid build that is based off a
full Fat Man Fabrication chassis with upgrades like a Mustang
II-style front suspension, a three-speed automatic transmission,
and power brakes with front discs.
Complete with build receipts, this is a high-quality custom classic
Ford. Coupes finished to this level rarely become available, so
