This 1948 Ford Roadster is a full custom with a fuel-injected V8,
four-wheel disc brakes, a vivid A/C interior, custom removable
hardtop, slick paint, and much more.
The investment in this body reminds us instantly why we all love
the rounded curves of the 1940s Fords. You know there was a lot
that went into the bodywork before the paint even was laid down.
The modern blue has that kind of quality that really lets you
appreciate every curve as the light rolls evenly across the entire
body. Some of the brightwork was eliminated for the more modern
appearance. Plus, there are frenched headlights, expertly
eliminated door handles, and a cool/custom rear end treatment. But
even with this streamlines style, all the right elements are still
in place for a great vintage look. After all, the bumpers shine
like mirrors and the three-bar grille is iconic. And the 17-inch
Billet Specialties wheels and big exhaust tips add to both the
shine and sportiness of this coupe.
The color-matched removable top and power windows give this the
ability to be buttoned up to the world while providing a distinct
coupe-like look. But this is really meant to be a cool open
roadster. After all, why else would they have finished everything
is such an attention-grabbing red? The custom-stitched upholstery,
matching door panels, plush carpeting, custom center console, dash,
and even the trunk are all done in the vivid red. And there's even
nice detailing, like the trim strip that runs through the doors and
wraps around the dash. And while this has an award-worthy look, it
was also built with plenty of comfort in mind. That's why you have
shoulder belts integrated into the front bucket seats, an AM/FM/CD
stereo with aux input, and a Vintage Air system with R134a air
condition (will need a recharge). It's a driver-oriented setup with
a red and chrome setting wheel on a tilt column, Lokar floor
shifter, upgraded pedals, and a full upgraded gauge panel with
large speedo and tach.
They saved another great modern upgrade for under the hood. Not
only do you have a nice 350 cubic-inch V8, but also it has RamJet
fuel injection. Upgraded pulleys, an aluminum radiator, and shorty
headers are all part of this package that's made to be a great
driving classic. They even upgraded the transmission to a
four-speed automatic with overdrive. The upgraded suspension, power
steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes all make it easy to show
off this custom Ford near or far.
