New car owners are leaving traditional sedans in droves for
compact, sporty SUV's. Perhaps they have more stuff than they know
what to do with. Maybe new cars just don't have enough trunk space
vintage vehicles used to. Jaguar F-Pace and Bentley Bentayga owners
are looking to jump on the Sporty SUV band wagon with distinctive
styling, custom personalization, creature comforts, and plenty of
performance. Still, it makes you one of thousands that might show
up wearing the same car to the party.
This '42 Ford Sedan Delivery has all the hand-built custom craftsmanship a high-dollar luxury SUV could offer, one-off two tone paint, custom color matched engine bay, hand-laid graphics, leather interior, and not just a smidgen of wood trim here and there, a full custom oak hardwood floor.
It doesn't compromise on comfort either, super soft ultra-leather interior, Bluetooth capable stereo entertainment system, power seats, and ice cold Vintage Air.
Performance? Well, the F-Pace weighs 4015 pounds and makes 380 horsepower, or about 10.56 horsepower per pound. The big Bentley, making 600hp but also tips the scales at 5,379 pounds, keeping the power to weight ratio near 8.9hp/lbs. This custom '42 Ford Sedan Delivery puts out 420 ponies and is about 1,000 pounds lighter than the "aluminum intensive structured" Jaguar. So, it wins the power-to-weight, with each horse pulling a mere 7.14 pounds.
This retro-custom SUV is in the same power class as a new Camaro ZL-1 or Corvette Stingray and BETTER than a Jaguar F-Type, Porsche Carrera S, or Mercedes E63 AMG S. Another thing you won't find in most luxury performance SVU's, a 6 speed MANUAL transmission. What fun is power when you don't get to command it yourself? Don't worry, the Heidt's independent front suspension and 4 wheel disc brakes keep it all headed in the direction you point it; able to stop on the next dime you encounter.
All this, and you can fit all the stuff you get on next trip to Home Depot. So, go head, jump on the sporty "SUV" band wagon, and be the only one to show up to the party with something this badass and beautiful.
