This 1934 Ford Victoria is a restomod build with an ultra-sleek
style, four-wheel disc brakes, and a full custom interior. And
while you'll love showing off every inch, the moment you open the
hood, all people will want to talk about is that gleaming
The impressiveness starts with the metallic purple paint. It's the
kind of professional application many people would love to have on
their own classic, and that's just the base for this one. Teal,
fuchsia, and green pinstriping introduce a full color fade-in
package in the same all-consuming way that other street machines
use flames. It creates a modern look that still pays tribute to the
spirit of a custom Ford coupe. The textures and details that have
been cleared into this appearance shows that this is a
one-of-a-kind look that takes an artist's hand to apply. And this
built is far more than just the paint. It's a chopped steel body
with fiberglass fenders to fit over those modern US Mags wheels.
And it all works in harmony, because the 17/20-inch front/rear
stagger gives a stance that complements the sporty roofline.
Sleekness is a priority with deleted bumpers, shaved door handles,
a frenched license plate, and flush mounted brake lights. It really
feels like no detail was overlooked, right down to the billet frame
for the quad exhaust tips.
Remote door openers and suicide hinges always invite a crowd. And
as they peek inside, they find a full custom interior done in
supple leather. Well-bolstered bucket seats, a matching rear bench,
full headliner, and custom door panels make this both stylish and
comfy. There are great modern features like power windows, a center
console, provisions for R134a air conditioning (will need
servicing,) and an Alpine AM/FM/CD stereo linked to upgraded
speakers and two Phoenix Gold amps. It's a well-done driver's setup
with a Budnik steering wheel, billet tilt column, and Lokar floor
shifter. And the dash is smooth and clean so you really get to see
the cool glow of the digital gauges.
Under the hood is a ton of shine, but what most people will be
interested in is the substance behind it. After all, we all love
the look of small block power, but this 350 cubic-inch V8 has some
unique features. The B&M blower fits snugly on top for a
serious boost in power. And we rarely see Mikuni carbs on top of a
build like this. It makes for a distinct look that also doesn't
need to poke out the top like many other supercharged machines
(after all, that would disturb this coupe's extra-sleek
personality.) The V8 fires up easily and makes a terrific tune as
Hooker headers flow into a Dynomax dual exhaust. To fully
understand the level of work in this car, take a look at the
undercarriage photos. There you'll see how clean the build is, with
chromed front 4 link and color matched frame. Even the 9-inch rear
diff was color-matched. And while you'll be putting a mirror under
this one at car shows, it's easy to get there thanks to the
three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and four-wheel
power disc brakes.
This is a fully-built coupe that is ready to take home some awards.
But the only wat to win tomorrow is to call today!
