This 1927 Ford Roadster delivers the best in street machine style,
and of course, street-eating 392 hemi power. So when you're looking
for style and muscle in a flame-kissed package, this one is
This one has the true hot rod look you want. The deeply dipping
grille up front, a tall rear, and a big V8 on display for the world
to see are all part of the icon. This has traveled a few miles in
its lifetime, because after all, the best cars were made to be
driven. But this was also built to be a standout that can be
enjoyed. For example, the pearl white paint is an even application
that does a good job of radiating in the sunshine. The body is
steel, but the rear fenders are fiberglass. That's how you get a
great custom look with them formed to the extra wide rear tires.
There are other cool details, like the way the yellow wheels kick
off a full accent color package for the car. And the flames are
painted on the sides with a nice pinstripe border.
A roadster like this keeps its interior presented to the world, and
so this one does a great job of coordinating with the exterior. It
starts with the white bench seat with yellow inserts and piping to
match the wheels. Plus, the side panels are also done in a matching
yellow. But what's really impressive are the little extra touches
that make this a better driving machine. You have a Lecarra sports
steering wheel on a tilt column, and the dash is dominated by a
full set of classic-style VDO readouts. And the push-button
transmission is a cool nod to the Mopar power that's fully on
display in front of you.
Chrysler's 392 cubic-inch Hemi is a drag racing legend, but we
don't see them too often any more in hot rods like this. So this
dual four-barrel carburetor setup makes for a roadster that's
distinct, authentic, and quite powerful. There's also nice details
with everything from the Offenhauser valve covers to the lake-style
headers with the choice of a thunderous side exit or routing the
rumble out of the rear. The undercarriage photos show a thoughtful
color-matched presentation with all the main suspension components
done in yellow. This draws attention to the well-done setup of a
four-link drop axle front end, and a four-link rear with stabilized
link and coilovers. And everything from the Powerflight automatic
transmission to the front disc brakes help give this a solid and
confident feeling on the road.
This is a roadster built with added care and the right flair. So if
you want a Hemi street machine, you know this one goes right to the
top of your list. Call today!!!
