In a field of red hot rods, yellow stands out like a beacon. It certainly doesn't hurt to have excellent components and a bulletproof drive train, either, and this car is all that and more! Step right up this 1934 Ford 3-window coupe is your next ride to Goodguys shows from coast to coast!
So many hot rods are built for show, with no chance of seeing the street. While it's great to knock down trophies, it's a TON of fun to drive a car like this around. Sure, its show credentials are in order, but this is a car built so well you could take it grocery shopping and not worry about it. With just 5806 miles since it was completed, you know it is fully sorted and ready to drive, and still in fabulous show-worthy condition.
Stare down the sides brilliant Corvette Competition Yellow paint covers every inch of the fiberglass exterior with a minimum of adornment (they even removed the body builders name, but I'm guessing it's an Outlaw piece) just as the hot rod gods intended. An aluminum grille gets framed by a pair of classic 7-inch headlamps for a great start up front. The louvered, four-piece Rootlieb hood is steel, and gives off just the right hot rod vibe, as do the super traditional chrome steel wheels with baby moon hubcaps wearing 195/65/15 front and 235/70/15 rear Kumho all-season radials. They're just the right size for the car and they look awesome.
A beautiful interior greets your arrival with style and comfort. The seats are finished in luxurious Ultraleather, a synthetic material that feels more like leather than leather itself! A body-color dash holds full Heritage Gold instrumentation from VDO, a polished GM tilt column with a Ron Francis teak steering wheel and A/C vents. There's a pioneer head unit in the center stack with the power window switches and the A/C controls and the cigar lighter. Alpine speakers bring plenty of sound into your life. Lokar provided the pedals; Genie was called in for their emergency brake setup and billet knobs fall to hand for controls. That switch in the center of the console controls the linear actuator in the trunk hit the switch and wow the crowds as the trunk opens itself to show off its beautifully upholstered interior.
The bottom of the body is covered in black, while the frame and whatever suspension components aren't chromed are bright yellow. For comfort and controls sake, the stock beam axle has been replaced by yellow painted upper and chromed lower control arms with Aldan coil over shocks and a rack and pinion unit for steering precision. GM disc brakes up front with matching drums out back haul the car back to legal speeds. A 3.42 gear-equipped Chevy 10-bolt rear finds itself out back, suspended by a chromed tubular four link system with urethane bushings and more Aldan coilovers. 2.25-inch dual exhaust pipes with DynoMax mufflers and wide chrome tips provide the real soundtrack, giving the car a mellow tone without being overbearing. The new fuel tank out back feeds new lines for trouble free fueling. You'll also find the emergency release for the trunk down there, which lets you into the nicely finished trunk which matches the door panels on the sides. That kind of ingenuity is what hot-rodding is all about.
Open the hood to find the heart of this classic: A 4-bolt main 350 bored .030 over and built for effortless driving, even in heavy traffic. An Edelbrock 600 CFM carb sits on a Weiand intake under a billet air cleaner, while an old school set of M/T aluminum valve covers have had their logos milled down and re-cut with "34" on them; it's a trick touch! A set of ceramic coated shorty headers send exhaust gasses back, while a fat radiator and shroud dispel heat. The chrome alternator and aluminum pulleys juice the car and the polished Sanden A/C compressor keeps you cool at the same time. A remanufactured HEI system lights the fires. There's nothing radical in here, but "radical" causes problems on a car that's meant to be driven.
Ready to take the reins of this baby yet? A head turner thanks to its bright yellow paint, awesome exhaust note and excellent fit and finish, this is a great hot rod. Wow 'em dead at your local cruise nights, travel Route 66 from end to end, or show up at any of the big hot rod shows from coast to coast and you'll be guaranteed an audience!
