1947 Ford Convertible If you are in the market for a custom hot rod look no further! This awesome 1947 Ford Convertible is all California custom and was once owned by drag racing legend Kenny Bernstein. If that name is familiar to you then you should know that on top of being a cool custom, this hot rod performs! The all blacked out exterior creates a very sleek look and the car looks perfect cruising down the road. The paint was very well done and is accented with the perfect amount of chrome and stainless. A split style original windshield is in place up front and framed in nicely polished trim. With all the glass cars on the market now it is also important to mention that this classic is all steel with no evidence of rust, body, damage or anything needing repair. The body sits on a boxed frame that has been painted to match. The black convertible top has a 2 inch chop and the body has been modified with frenched headlights and taillights. It has also been nosed and decked creating a very smooth exterior. Custom door handles are in place and inset into both doors. A flip down license plate is mounted in the rear giving it a cool look at car shows while still allowing it to be legal on the streets. The car rolls around on Billet Specialties wheels which have a great shine. Wider tires are in place in rear and all of the tires have plenty of life left in them. Getting those tires spinning is the 454 Chevy motor that has been bored 60 over to 468 ci. This is then fitted with a Street and Performance injection system that is completely chromed out. Only polished or chrome components were used and the smooth top valve covers look really sharp. All braided lines are were used and a custom panel was created to top the radiator creating a very clean appearance. The engine runs extremely well and sends power back through the Turbo 400 transmission into the Ford 9: rear end. It was set up with 2:90 gears making it a great long distance highway driver. A Mustang II style front end was added and the car has a great ride. The interior is done in all Black leather and is extremely comfortable. Bucket seats are found up front and sit to each side of a custom made center console. The dash is entirely custom and is painted Black to match the exterior. Custom gauges are in place and all working properly. An after market Pioneer stereo system was added and delivers and awesome sound. Air conditioning vents were added to the dash as well which makes for a much cleaner look than you would get with an underdash style unit. The convertible top is all power assisted and easily operated via a switch. The trunk of the car is nicely done in Black as well and houses the hidden batteries and 12 disc CD changer. This professionally built custom can be in your garage for a deal at $75,000.00!
