Vehicle Description

If you like the iconic look of the late '30s Fords, smooth flathead V8 power, and sporty roofline, then this 1934 Ford Phaeton is just waiting for you to drive it home.

The phaeton body style has a thin roofline opening up the car even with the top in place. That gives this American classic a very European feel. So while it was far from the most expensive car Ford offered in 1934, today it has a great sporty profile that keeps it especially in-demand. This pre-war car has been treated correctly over the decades. For example, it has been repainted during its lifetime to make sure the sunlight can show off the high-gloss finish of this sunshine-friendly Ford. But it's done in a classic lacquer finish that keeps the right classic tone. And we love how the red pinstripe nicely matches the wire wheels. To understand the full quality, just look at how all of the 85+ year-old steel retains its sleek lines, or how the doors can still easily be open and shut with confidence. All the details are right on this one, including the waterfall chrome grille, etched chrome bumpers with center dip curve, whitewalls, and even the Ford V8 hubcaps. And the cool, sleek, greyhound hood ornament that gives the premium image this car deserves.

The gorgeous condition of brown interior is another sign of proper care and investment over the years. The comfortable rows of leather bench seats look as inviting as you favorite easy chair. All the right details are in place, like the side wind deflectors and simulated wood-grain dash. It feels like a true time machine experience as you slip behind the glossy black steering wheel, grab the tall shifter, and watch the classic gauges begin to do their dance.

Everyone from outlaws and enthusiasts love Ford's awesome 221 cubic inch flathead V8. The tidy engine bay looks quite authentic, and it has even been suggested that this is the original motor. More importantly, these V8s gave Ford an unbeatable reputation of a powerful personality that had a masterful amount of torque on tap. Just like the rest of the car, the powerhouse has been well-respected and well-maintained. So it's a strong runner that fires up eagerly. The three-speed manual transmission has that ideal vintage mechanical feel, and this means a confident feeling as you control the V8.

Distinction, style, and true vintage appeal all come together in one well-done total package. So if you love driving true classics, and you love having all eyes on you, call now!
