1940 Ford Deluxe Coupe
This is not your grandpa’s basic street rod! This Ford original steel body coupe just went through a major refresh over the last few years. Starting with removal of the body from the frame and engine from the chassis. The frame was fully boxed to add strength and rigidity while the body was coated in Candy Apple red paint. One look at the front of this street rod and you will see why it demands attention. The engine is the real highlight here and no shortcuts were taken! The 409 cu in. engine was taken down to the block and completely gone through for a rebuild along with the 671 TBS blower to add power to this street machine. The rebuild consisted of forged internals, blower camshaft, blueprinting, and balancing. The engine runs cool here in Florida with no issues. The fuel is fed by new dual Quickfuel carbs and a TH350 trans delivers tire scorching power to the Slot Mag wheels through a Ford 9” rear end below a 4 link suspension. Exhaust flows through 3 in. pipes and Flowmaster mufflers out the back. The electrical is all new with a fresh rewire and new harness. The interior is white and has power windows and a new retro looking Bluetooth Custom Autosound radio. Modern day features like a Mustang II rack and pinion and the addition of power disc brakes on the front and rear were installed. All four corners are supported by QA1 adjustable coil overs.
