For sale at Gateway Classic Cars in our Houston showroom is this all metal Viper Yellow 1936 Ford 5-window Coupe. This road-ready Ford 5-window coupe was built for both show and go, so this runner of a '36 Ford has just about everything you could ever want in a hot rod. Under the hood is a Blueprint Engines 355 CID small block Chevy V8 with a new carburetor & aluminum intake, backed by a GM TH350 3-speed automatic trans with a 2600 RPM stall converter that spins a 3.42:1 Eaton Posi rear end, giving it both low-end acceleration capability and highway cruisin' friendly RPM on the freeway. Fire up the 355 and you'll discover a nice deep rumble, enhanced by the ceramic coated headers and full 2.5" dual exhaust with MagnaFlow mufflers. Grab the custom billet column shift lever, pull it down into drive, mash the go-pedal, and get catapaulted into the glory days of street rods and custom cruisers. You'll love driving the car, because it handles and steers like a modern car - equipped with a FatMan front end with rack and pinion steering and power front disc brakes, you'll feel totally in control wherever you go. When you pull into the drive-in burger shack, you'll get tons of attention when you flip the engine covers up - chrome and polished billet accessories abound; and the custom-plumbed look of the R134a Vintage A/C will grab eyeballs, too. When onlookers sidle over to check out the rest of the car (and they will), they'll be equally impressed to see the Billet Specialties wheels wrapped with performance radial tires, and when they check out the super-custom interior, they'll see that this car is made to be driven, and comfortably! Inside is a custom dark brown and tan motif. The seats have perforated tan artificial leather center inserts, surrounded by a rich chocolate brown artificial leather. There is a cool custom center console housing the dual DIN AM/FM/CD radio, and the controls for the Vintage A/C; plus, some brushed aluminum drink holders are nicely integrated into the console base. Options on this 1936 Ford 5-window Coupe include Remote Power Windows, Door Poppers,Billet Power Trunk, A/C, AM/FM/CD, Power Brakes, Power Windows, Tilt Wheel, Keyless Entry, Seat Belts, Vinyl Interior, Radial Tires, and Aluminum Wheels.
