For Sale: 1934 Ford 5-Window Coupe in Ft Worth, Texas


Vehicle Description

Are 1934 Fords the ultimate American street rod? This 1934 Ford 5-Window Coupe certainly puts on a convincing demonstration with a wicked stance, vivid red paint job, and a herculean powerplant led by the supercharged 355 V8 under the 3-piece hood. Built a mere 4,362 miles ago, this steel-bodied '34 is a turn-key hotrod that has both the hardware and the timeless looks to dominate the streets for decades to come.

You can spot a '34 Ford a quarter-mile away simply because every single line, curve, and louver is exactly right. The smart builders know not to mess too much with a good thing, so this handsome 5-Window coupe got a slight top chop that accentuates the rake, but not much else from the looks of it. Of course, the sheetmetal was prepped with the craftsmanship that only comes in top hot rod shops (built by the pros at Heinzman Street Rod Shop in Nebraska), so gaps are even, the finish is distortion-free, and despite 4k miles of use, it still looks very good. The build was completed in 1993, which you'd never guess when looking at how well this streetrod has held up. Minimal use (about 155 miles logged per year) and loads of care throughout the years have preserved this '34 in top driver-quality condition, and the fact that it looks like it was finished not long ago is a testament to the original build quality. The bold Red paint dances in the lights, with plenty of shine and luster maintained through years of careful wash and waxes from the conscientious former owners. Trim and brightwork is minimal but they did keep some of the shiny stuff: the deeply Vee'd grille, twin King Bee style headlights, simple hood trim, teardrop taillights, and what are arguably the most attractive door handles ever fitted to an automobile. The bumpers were deleted and the fiberglass fenders and running boards which feature black vinyl step guards result is a smooth, streamlined look that looks refreshing in every decade.

The interior is drop-dead gorgeous, nicely finished but not over-wrought like so many recent rods. Simple tan tweed with vinyl trim covers the bench seat and the door panels are dressed with the same stuff, along with chrome handles that add nice pop. The suicide-style doors make climbing in graceful and easy, and it's filled with comfort features like power steering, power brakes, a tilt column, and a Pioneer CD changer with controls neatly stashed away in the glove compartment. A beautifully finished dash was painted to match the body and holds retro-looking black VDO gauges that keep a close eye on the monster that lives under the hood, and a boost retard switch was installed underneath to keep the blower at bay when needed. Very cool. Up top, the headliner was finished in the same beautiful tweed pattern found on the seats and door panels, while the carpets below are still in great shape, fully insulating the cabin from road noise. Out back, the trunk was upholstered to match the cabin, with hidden compartments stowing away things like the battery and wiring, and there's enough room in there to account for any Power Tour in this hotrod's future.

Those of you expecting a run-of-the-mill small block Chevy are going to be disappointed because this cool Ford packs a lot more heat than that: a 355 Supercharged V8. It really shouldn't be a surprise; after all, these engines are incredibly durable, very torquey, and with a fair number of performance parts available for them, it's a wonderful alternative to the same-old, same-old. Augmented with Dart heads and topped with a big polished BDS 671 blower and dual Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetors that force-feed the stout motor and make it act like a far bigger engine without eliminating all the small block advantages. It's also nicely detailed with lots of brightly polished and chromed details and ceramic coated shorty headers that make people do a double take when the hood is lifted. It's tied to a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and what appears to be a Ford 9-inch rear end, so it's a great highway cruiser and the painted and detailed chassis was obviously set up to show off. With Mustang II-style A-arms and power rack-and pinion steering up front and coilovers and a big sway bar in the rear, it tracks well and the stainless steel Flowmaster dual exhaust sounds aggressive without getting annoying. Polished slotted wheels look slick and are wrapped with staggered 185/70/14 front and 235/70/15 rear Kumho radials that give it the prefect hotrod stance.

A no-expenses-spared build when it was first finished, this remains a very high-quality rod with a very interesting hardware list and an awesome look. Call today!
