If you like the iconic look of the late '30s Fords, smooth flathead
V8 power, and sporty roofline, this 1934 Ford Phaeton is just
waiting for you to drive it home.
The phaeton body style has a thin roofline opening up the car even
with the top in place. That gives this American classic a very
European feel. So while it was far from the most expensive car Ford
offered in 1934, today it has a tremendous sporty profile that
keeps it, especially in demand. This pre-war car has been treated
correctly over the decades. For example, it has been repainted
during its lifetime to ensure the sunlight can show off the
high-gloss finish of this sunshine-friendly Ford. But it's done in
a classic lacquer finish with the right classic tone. And we love
how the red pinstripe nicely matches the wire wheels. To understand
the full quality, look at how the nearly 90-year-old steel retains
its sleek lines or how the doors can easily be opened and shut
confidently. All the best details are right on this one, including
the waterfall chrome grille, etched chrome bumpers with a center
dip curve, whitewalls, and even the Ford V8 hubcaps. And the
fantastic, sleek greyhound hood ornament gives the premium image
this car deserves.
The gorgeous condition of the brown interior is another sign of
proper care and investment over the years. The comfortable rows of
leather bench seats look as inviting as your favorite easy chair.
All the right details are in place, like the side wind deflectors
and simulated wood-grain dash. It feels like an actual time machine
experience as you slip behind the glossy black steering wheel, grab
the tall shifter, and watch the classic gauges begin to do their
Everyone from outlaws and enthusiasts loved Ford's awesome 221
cubic inch flathead V8. The tidy engine bay looks quite authentic,
and it's even the correct 21-stud head setup. More importantly,
these V8s gave Ford an unbeatable reputation of a powerful
personality with a masterful amount of torque on tap. Like the rest
of the car, the powerhouse has been well-respected and
well-maintained. So it's a strong runner that fires up eagerly. The
three-speed manual transmission has that ideal vintage mechanical
feel and even easy double-clutch downshifts. It's about giving you
confident but vintage control over a car made to have some time
capsule fun out on the road.
Distinction, style, and true vintage appeal all come together in a
well-done package. So if you love driving true classics and having
all eyes on you, call now!
