I strive for two things in design: simplicity and clarity. Great design is born of those two things. �€" Lindo Leader, graphic designer and creator of the FedEx logo. Offered here is a fully customized 1935 Ford in Lime Gold metallic. The quality of the restoration and customization work was the result of professionals who shared a vision-not unlike Mr. Leader's cited above-of simplicity and clarity. Creativity expressed by the removal of the unnecessary or visually cluttered in favor of the flow and essence of this classic automobile design. Virtually every cosmetic or mechanical aspect of the car has been dramatically upgraded, yet the effect is one of clean, flowing simplicity. Just 528 miles have been put on the car since its stunning completion. Outside, the Lime Gold metallic paint (one of the colors Carroll Shelby chose for his Ford creations) was a beautiful choice for the curvaceous '35 Ford body. The paint finish is outstanding-even and perfectly glossy across every body panel. All bodywork was performed to the highest standards, and included sectioning the body by 4 inches, chopping 4 inches off the top, and widening the body by 6 inches. The resulting stance and visual statement is a perfect blend of the customizer's art and the classic '35 Ford body lines. The front grille (re-executed in black), reduced-height windshield, flowing fenders, sloping rear end (with twin exhaust outlets, but no bumper), and black fabric convertible top combine for a true custom statement. Racing-style side mirrors are fitting extensions of the headlight styling. The exquisite overall attention to detail is epitomized by the entire front face of the car: beautifully curved fenders, headlights (with LEDs), fully customized grille, small vented amber turn signal lights, and the smooth sloping hood are all of a piece in appearance. In the rear, the sloped deck with its single embossed Ford-script logo, is a perfect ending to the design statement. Chrome, twisted-six-spoke American Racing® wheels are mounted with BFGoodrich® Radial T/A performance tires. Top up, or top down, the car's presence is undeniable. The interior-all in black-has been updated in every respect, yet still manages a design-connection to the exterior bodywork. Well-bolstered, low-back front buckets and a fold-down rear bench seat are upholstered in fresh black leather in a square-pattern design. Door trim uses the same material but includes pleated inserts and a beguiling, curved trim piece. Cabin carpeting is black. A designer-original, Ford-branded steering wheel frames a beautifully simple black-leather-covered dashboard. Five chrome-trimmed, oval, blue-digital-illuminated instruments face the driver. The center stack includes control levers for the well-integrated Vintage Air® system as well as JVC® audio head unit. The full console hosts the shifter for the automatic transmission, covered cupholders, and storage. The custom look extends to the perfectly clean engine bay where the Ford 4.6-liter V8 breathes through a forward-located air cleaner assembly. Custom covers for the Powered by Ford engine and its intake system are body-color-matching panels. Viewed from below, the chassis and power-delivery components are perfectly aligned and of course, with just 528 miles, clean and undamaged. Full-length dual exhaust and suspension components are focal points in addition
