Great vintage looks and thoughtful modern upgrades makes this 1941 cabriolet is a true head-turner at any car show. Plus, with a fuel-injected 5.0 Ford V8, four-wheel disc brakes, overdrive transmission, and a whole lot more worthwhile features, it has a great driveability that will make you want to cruise all day long.
You take one look at a car like this and you know it deservers a nickname. With all the custom touches and the super-slick metallic paint, we're thinking of calling her "Sliver Streak." Obviously, you can name her whatever you want when you take this one home, but as you look at how much was invested in the paintwork, you might just have to agree. The two-tone on this car is for those who love details. It might be difficult to see the dual colors from a distance, but the closer you get, the more distinct the silver and darker metallic gray become. The color separation follows the crease in the bodyline for a very cool appearance, and there's a red pinstripe to finish off the package. This is a true custom creation with the bumpers shaved so nothing gets in the way of viewing the custom LED turn signals and taillights. Brightwork is used on this convertible to accent the strongest features. It shines brightly on the three-piece grille that was a '41-only feature, and an everyone loves those Colorado Customs alloy wheels that are staggered 17/20 inches front/rear so everyone always knows where the power is coming from.
Pop the remote door openers and reveal a full custom interior. Those power bucket seats up front are vastly more comfortable than anything that came out of the 1940s. The black material matches the rear seats, door panels, and center console for an overall fantastic presentation – it will make you proud to take the top down and show off this very unique build. But beyond just looking great, you also get all the right features like power windows and powerful Kenwood AM/FM/cassette stereo. The original steel dash has been retained and painted to match the body, and it has a fantastic symmetrical Art Deco presentation. But just to remind you how much thought went into this build, the steering wheel is a chrome Colorado Customs unit that has been done in a similar fashion to coordinate with the alloy wheels. In back, the trunk has been upholstered to match, and will hold a week's worth of luggage, making this exactly the kind of rod you'll want to drive cross-country.
You won't have any worries on a journey like that either, thanks to a 5.0 liter fuel-injected V8 under the hood. This powerplant is a legend in cars like the Mustang for its reliability and power. These motors have already proven themselves to be strong, easy to service, and if you want upgrades, they're just a phone call away. Against the painted engine bay, the polished upper intake and side air grabber mimic the way the grille boldly stands out on the exterior. This motor fires up with the precision expected of V8 technology that is much younger than the flatheads that originally came in this Ford. The result is a distinct rumble produced by the Dynomax Bullet mufflers that feed the dual exhaust – it instantly let's people know there is something special under the hood. But more than just power and sound, this custom build was truly made to be driven. It has great features to keep this an easy-driving classic like an aluminum radiator w/electric fan, AOD four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, four-wheel disc brakes, and the grip of BF Goodrich gForce tires.
Thoughtful and expensive to build (we have the receipts to prove it!) when was the last time you saw a great vintage custom with all the right modern equipment hiding underneath? But don't take too long to answer that question, or this very unique Ford might be gone. Call today!!!
