This outstanding 1947 Ford Deluxe Sedan was restored to be driven
and enjoyed. The restoration centered not only on appearance, but
also serious mechanical upgrades. As a foundation, the factory Ford
chassis was replaced by a 1957 Chevy boxed frame and suspension
w/Fatman dropped spindles and GM differential. The 2-door body was
reinstalled and professionally refinished in 2-stage GM Meadow
Green. Handles were shaved and rear lights were 'frenched'. All
chrome and stainless are in excellent condition and chrome American
Racing alloys provide the perfect accent. The Beige leather
interior is stunning and Cadillac bucket seats (power driver) are a
perfect fit. A custom dash holds Classic VDO gauges, electric
speedo and the tilt wheel assembly mounts a Grant wheel. Other
features include center console, Wilk-Bilt power door openers, Bear
Claw latches, electric wipers, power windows, power trunk,
'sunroof', tinted windows and a lot more. The engine compartment
houses a rebuilt 350ci Chevy small-block that sounds sweet and is
very streetable. It was bored .040 over, fitted with an aluminum
intake/4V carburetor and exhaust is routed through functional side
pipes. A Walker 4-core radiator and electric fan provide cooling.
The Tremec TKO 600 5-speed manual gearbox is fitted to a Lakewood
bell housing and managed by a Keisler hydraulic clutch assembly. A
'71 GM 12-bolt differential is equipped with 3.42:1 gears. The
Chevy chassis is equipped with power steering, power disc/drum
brakes w/Wilwood proportioning valve, front sway bar and gas front
shocks. A 22-gallon fuel tank has been installed and all electrics
have been upgraded to a 12V alternator configuration with a custom
Streetworks/Ron Francis harness and remote boost adaptor. This
handsome street rod was built right and is ready is for your next
cruise. ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS".
