In the face of modern technology, which continues to blow our minds with OEM quality and amazing custom cars, there's still something to be said about authenticity. Sure, tons of companies create super nice fiberglass replicas of some of the coolest Detroit metal to ever roll across Route 66. But at the end of the day, they're still just a copy of the real thing. Featuring 460 cubic inches of proven Dearborn power, this real steel street rod combines the core strengths of originality with modern dynamics and top-notch components. Are you one of those discerning gearheads who wants the excellent driving experience of modern street rod technology AND the authenticity of a real antique car? This first class Ford is the opportunity you've been waiting for!

CRAFT AND FORM

This hot coupe's smooth and solid steel began life as a run-of-the-mill 1936 Model 48 that was maintained, driven and paraded for most of its life. Today, thanks to a detailed, body-off restoration, that old school metal has been stripped, strengthened and tastefully massaged into an enduring aesthetic that will simply never go out of style. At the front of the car's glossy PPG Omni Black 2-stage, a tucked and guarded bumper traces a color-keyed grille, which bends between polished horn rings that hide bright parking lamps. Those lamps are shaded by '39 Chevrolet torpedo-style headlights, which plant shortened stanchions at the sides of a custom, 3-piece hood. At the back of that rear-hinged bonnet, 2-speed Newport wipers, presently relieved of their arms, split the difference between a tilting windshield and an unchopped roof that's been upgraded with a steel insert. At the sides of that smoked greenhouse, factory door handles complement a flush fuel filler and elegant swan neck mirrors. Those mirrors reflect a custom, electronically opened trunk that, extended, smoothed and radiused, really plays up the quality of Ford's design. And at the bottom of that deck, a second tucked and guarded bumper frames bright LED taillights that have been tastefully molded into the car's rear fenders.

CRAFT AND POWER

Employ this coupe's removable hood panels and you'll reveal a massive, 460 cubic inch Ford V8 that provides both great power and great drivability. At the top of that fully sorted mill, a polished Ford air cleaner feeds oxygen to a 750cfm Holley 4-barrel that's tamed by an electric choke. Below that carb, a tough Weiand Stealth intake rides between lightweight aluminum heads, which are equipped with polished Ford valve covers and a duo of polished breathers. In front of those heads, a proven Mallory distributor sequences fire between an MSD Blaster coil and loomed Taylor plug wires. Coated headers look great caging bright blue block paint. A flashy March serpentine drive spins a polished alternator opposite a polished AC compressor. A custom fan shroud frames a polished radiator, which is paired with a polished expansion tank. And the car's Omni Black engine bay, backed with a nicely recessed firewall, is dotted with choice pieces like braided hoses, polished lines and a billet, electronically assisted master cylinder.

CRAFT AND POISE

This Ford's confident engine is paired with a cooled C6 3-speed, which spins smooth torque to a shortened Ford 9-inch that's finished with a limited-slip differential and sturdy, 3.28 gears. In front of that drivetrain, a familiar Mustang II front-clip cages fluid rack-and-pinion steering between tubular control arms, a Welder Series sway bar and quality Aldan coil-overs. Behind that drivetrain, a triangulated 4-bar rear-half makes excellent use of more tubular control arms and a second pair of Aldan coil-overs. Those upgrades are bolted to a custom, boxed chassis that reflects solid, fully undercoated floors. Stops come courtesy of power-assisted discs and drums. The aforementioned headers flow into coated pipes, which position bold Flowmaster Hushpower mufflers in front of tucked tips. And polished Billet Specialties Legacies turn simulated spinners inside 165SR15 Michelin XZXs and 235/75R15 Michelin LTXs.

CRAFT AND LUXURY

Twist this awesome 48's handles and you'll find a custom leather interior that continues the theme of classic cool. The driver and one passenger perch on French-stitched Chocolate leather that's stretched around power-operated Eldorado buckets. In front of those thrones, a '54 Oldsmobile dash flows into a custom console that's stacked with Vintage Air climate control, a spry Auto Meter tachometer and a Custom Autosound head unit that's linked to a Custom Autosound CD changer. Beneath those Ron Francis-backed electronics, German square-weave carpet frames Lokar foot pedals on the way to custom side panels, which front remote-controlled power windows that tilt just as the factory intended. And the driver commands the scene through a short Lokar shifter and a tilting, reduced-diameter steering wheel that was cribbed straight from a 1940 Ford.

You really can't ask for a cooler street rod than this sublime Ford. With an unbeatable combination of authentic good looks and modern hot rod technology, it's the perfect car for any enthusiast who wants a top-notch build without spending two years and six figures achieving it. If you're in the market for a classy, all-steel cruiser, don't let the opportunity to own this awesome coupe pass you by!
