Ever want to be that guy who just turns the key on a Saturday
morning, goes out for a nice air-conditioned drive, and come home
with some awards? This fully-built 1934 Ford 3-window coupe is
exactly that kind of classic. With amazing paint, chromed V8, and a
luxury leather interior... it gives you everything and leaves you
wanting for nothing.
Let's start with the body. It's a chopped profile that comes from Eddies Rod Shop - and they are one of the great masters at making the fiberglass look straighter than the steel that came from Ford all those decades ago. A precision build like this is needed because a 10-layer paint was applied on top. With four layers to apply Ford's Vermillion Red and six reserved for the clearcoat, every crease in the bodyline shines brighter than if they had used chrome. And speaking of brightwork, the waterfall grille, bumpers, trim on the steel hood, and those 15-inch wire wheels all rival the paint for shine. It's the kind of overall package that instantly tells people you've made a large investment, even before we get into some of the details they don't often see (more on that in a moment.)
Open the suicide doors to reveal an interior with one of the highest levels of fit and finish we've seen in a street rod. Reclining buckets make the most of the coupe's interior space, leaving it comfortable even for guys over six feet tall, and the sculpted contours are good for long road trips. The cream leather with gray and red inserts on the seats is part of a full coordinated package that includes the door panels, carpeting, headliner, dash, and even the fully finished trunk. It's this level of detail that turns a showstopper into an award-winner. But more than just looking good, this is a comfortable place to eat up the miles with features like the AM/FM/CD stereo and ice-cold R134a air conditioning. But while your passenger can enjoy those features, the best treats are reserved just for the driver. You get a leather-wrapped three-spoke banjo-style steering wheel, and beyond that is a new set of Kustom Instruments gauges.
Before you open the hood, you might want to grab your sunglasses. We dare you to find another component that can be polished. From the big air grabber to the A/C compressor, this V8 was built to impress. But once you look beyond the shine, you'll see the substance of a new 350 cubic-inch crate motor. It's been enhanced with go-fast goodies such as Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and shorty headers. That last one also helps create a wicked sound from the stainless dual exhaust. But don't just listen to the rumble; follow its path in the undercarriage photos. That's where you're going to spot some of the best features of this street rod, like the ultra-desirable Pete & Jakes frame. There are also features like the Heidts Mustang II-style independent front suspension, new stainless gas tank, and front disc brakes. Are you starting to get the full picture on this one? Not only is it a performance build, but also features like the power steering and four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive make it effortless on the highway, too.
This is the street rod with the full list of everything you could want... In fact, it has so many more features than we have room to list, so you need to call for all the details on this stunning red build!
