This 1947 Ford Deluxe Sedan has been subtly upgraded to be a much
more fun machine. The sleeker style, upgraded interior, and

will need servicing to blow fully cold again,) and the auxiliary
gauge trio helps you keep a better eye on what's going on under the

more powerful hearts out there. That's why this one has been
upgraded to Ford's mighty 302 cubic-inch V8. It also has a Holley
four-barrel carburetor, upgraded intakes, and an aluminum radiator.
It fires up nicely with a good V8 tune from the glasspack-style
dual exhaust, and aluminum radiator. This Ford was meant for
cruising, so it also has a three-speed automatic transmission,
power steering, power brakes, front discs, and wide modern
