For Sale: 1935 Ford Sedan in Charlotte, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

Dial up a Google Image search for "1935 Ford" and you'll be greeted by pages of elaborate fiberglass customs. Indeed, the De Luxe Ford is right up there with Willys and Bel Airs when it comes to hot rodding's greatest cultural icons. And, while we're all about creativity and radical builds, this alluring sedan truly feels like a breath of fresh air. Founded on the proven tenets of street rodding, the car was fully revitalized during a comprehensive, ground-up restoration. With an all-steel body, factory brightwork and glossy Rally Red paint, its basic specs could describe a relatively stock car. But a few minutes of deeper examination reveals otherwise, as, from custom upholstery and 350 cubic inches of Camaro V8 to cool air conditioning and a modern automatic transmission, choice modifications start adding up to one impressive ride. If you're an enthusiast who enjoys a near perfect mix of vintage hardware and modern convenience, here's a classic that delivers in every way!


This timeless Ford began life as a fun runabout that was maintained, driven and paraded for most of its existence. When the car met its current owner, original Dearborn steel was treated to a six-figure restoration that, after a solid ten years in the shop, reflected bright Honda Rally Red pigment via quality PPG two-stage. And today, this award-winning cruiser rolls as a 'built for keeps' street rod that warps fully sorted mechanicals in traditionally unique aesthetics! Those digs kick off with a long grille which, re-chromed by the pros at Advanced Plating, centers a classy Ford emblem between a polished bumper, ornate horns and chrome-trimmed tri-bar headlights that are finished with integrated turn signals. A racy "V8" topper leads a four-piece, stainless-trimmed hood, which reflects voluptuous fenders and wrapped running boards. At the back of that hood, a polished wiper clears a stainless-trimmed windscreen, which fronts a factory greenhouse that's capped by tight factory vinyl. Elegant mirrors reflect factory door handles and a polished fuel cap. And at the back of the car, a second polished bumper splits flashy exhaust tips and polished Blue Dot Taillights.


This sweet sedan powers down the road thanks to a 350 cubic inch L98 V8 that, in addition to being bored .040 over, was professionally balanced and blueprinted by the pros at K&T Engine Development of Concord, North Carolina. At the front of the Jet Black block, a polished air cleaner pushes wind through a polished intake, which works well with GM Tuned Port Fuel Injection. That perfect mixture of air and fuel juices a mild COMP cam, which works well with fluid roller rockers. Sparks are sequenced from a hot HEI distributor to loomed Taylor plug wires. Spent gases swirl through streamlined Sanderson headers. Polished pulleys spin a polished alternator opposite a polished AC compressor. Cooling comes courtesy of a proven Walker radiator, which makes excellent use of an electronic puller fan. And, on the visual end of the spectrum, polished valve covers perfectly complement a polished brake booster, a polished oil pan and polished hood supports.


Every good street rod has a solid foundation. Flip this Ford upside down and you'll find a roster of mechanical improvements that mix classic looks with modern mobility. Behind the small block, a cooled GM 700R4 4-speed spins power to a 9-inch Ford pumpkin that's finished with stout Moser axles and fun, 3.50 gears. A full Fat Man Fabrications frame wraps an independent Fat Man Fabrications front-clip around spry QA-1 coil-overs and modern power rack-and-pinion steering. Braking is solid, thanks to power-assisted discs and drums. There's an aluminized exhaust system that barks through throaty turbo mufflers. And everything rolls on chromed Ridler blades, which spin 205/65R15 General AltiMAX RTs in front of 235/75R15 General AltiMAX RTs.


Pop the doors and you'll find a custom leather interior that's much nicer than traditional factory fodder. At ground level, premium carpet centers a tall Lokar shifter between a small console and a polished fire extinguisher. At the center of that rug, plush, power-adjustable buckets ride snug between sculpted side panels, which anchor traditional handles and stylish armrests in front of modern power windows. In front of those seats, a monochromatic dash founds gold-tinged telemetry beside modern air conditioning and modern Pioneer audio. And the driver spins a polished, banjo-style steering wheel around a polished tilt column and a billet go pedal.

The street rod scene is huge! And, looking over this Ford, it's not hard to see why. The car's clean, unaltered lines are enough to draw any enthusiast, and the reliability of a modern GM powertrain is more than enough to keep folks smiling. Have you forgotten what it's like to actually drive a car? To drive a car you actually enjoy? To drive a car that'll inspire joyous memories for years to come? Call your friends at RK Motors Charlotte and grab the wheel of this impressive sedan!
