This 1934 Ford Sedan Deluxe Package celebrates the dawn of Ford's
famous flathead V8 with a car that celebrates the best vintage
fantasies. From the texture of the pinstripes to the feel of the
seats, this is all about unleashing the emotion of a time capsule
It's hard not to think about a 1934 Ford 40B without thinking about
Bonnie and Clyde. We just know you've been imagining putting on a
three-piece pinstripe suit, opening the front suicide door, and
posing on the fender for an old-style picture just like the classic
outlaw pair. This classic desire is not just because those
fugitives made their stand in a Ford like this, but also this
particular one has that kind of authentic feel. In fact, it was
specifically painted as part of a father-son project to recreate
the color theme of the father's first car. The glossy black has a
worn-in feel that you expect from a car of this era, and against it
is a detailed yellow package where the wire wheels, pinstripe, and
hood louver accents all coordinate. There are nice details, like
the bright chrome bumper with a dip in the middle to show off the
waterfall grille. As a Deluxe package, there are some nice extras
like dual horns, dual taillights, and the optional premium
greyhound hood ornament leading the way.
The cloth interior has the ideal classic feel. They replaced it to
erase decades of use, but the striped pattern on the seats and
doors feels absolutely authentic. Even the pleats in both rows add
to this great vintage look. Classic motoring means a large grippy
steering wheel and a big, clear speedometer. No one has tried to
ruin this time machine with aftermarket parts like air
conditioning. Instead, it's a time warp, right down to the need for
extra ash trays as a premium feature.
The logos on the grille and hubcaps let you know to expect Ford's
famous 221 cubic-inch flathead V8 under the hood. This is the motor
that Clyde Barrow liked so much that he wrote Henry Ford a thank
you letter. And he wasn't the only fan. You can see from this
condition that this V8 has been treated with care, and the way it
runs strong reaffirms this feeling. The powerplant is mated to a
three-speed manual transmission that's geared for good in-town
driving. It all proves this '34 sedan is not a trailer queen...
this old gal is a true classic driver.
Bonnie and Clyde will always be a fun reference with a 1934 Ford
40B sedan, but this example is so much more. It is the solid
classic driver that lets you create your own legends. Call now!
