It's always fun to watch top notch street rods roll through our RK Motors Charlotte showroom. Unlike beefy muscle cars or slick sports cars, which are designed with varying degrees of built-in homogeny that appeals to a wide variety of buyers, street rods are constructed around the two main cornerstones of every car enthusiast's psyche: GOING FAST and LOOKING GOOD. And if you're the kind of buyer who's ready to go big and drop jaws, this fashionable Ford is exactly the kind of classic that does just that!

GLOSSY GLASSY GLOW

Sourced from Wild Rods of Granada Hills, California, this hot coupe's quality fiberglass body was super clean before its high-dollar build even started. But nonetheless, the car was subjected to a full, ground-up massage that included hours of labor-intensive prep. Naturally, that dramatic attention to detail was highlighted in equally dramatic two-stage, which carves tasteful orange and red flames into a trick combination of gold and charcoal pigment. And today, with an undeniable nod to timeless Ford design, this classic rolls as a banner show piece that celebrates the best virtues of modern street rodding.

It's hard to find any well-done '40 Ford that doesn't turn heads and inspire stares. But this custom, with its excellent stance, alluring paint and timeless details, blows the cobbled look of most 'once in a lifetime builds' right out of the water! Up front, a polished, De Luxe-style grille leads stainless-trimmed headlights, a small “Ford” script and small parking lamps. At the top of the car, a long hood fronts a chopped greenhouse, which seals flush-mount glass between billet mirrors and polished wipers. At the sides of the car, bright louvers parallel broad running boards that have been fashioned around polished exhaust outlets. And out back, a smoothed decklid shades a frenched tag between stainless-trimmed LED taillights.

SORTED SMALL BLOCK POWER

Take a peek under this classic's electric hood and you'll find 5.7 liters of stout LS1 that twists solid power into effortless torque. Straight from GM, this fully-sorted package combines a sturdy aluminum block with lightweight aluminum heads, coil-near-plug ignition and aluminum flat top pistons to create razor sharp throttle response and lightning quick acceleration. At the front of the engine, a smooth serpentine drive spins a coated AC compressor opposite a polished air cleaner. That box breathes through an LS1 throttle body and a factory LS1 intake, which is bolted over completely stock internals. High octane fossils are provided by GM electronic fuel injection. Spent gases traverse a slick pair of ceramic-coated shorty headers. Cooling comes courtesy of a big aluminum radiator that's complete with a spry puller fan. And not a detail has been missed in this Ford's body-matched engine bay, with niceties like sleeved hoses and trick dipsticks complementing a polished, “CORVETTE” branded engine shroud.

CLEAN CUSTOM DRIVEABILITY

Behind the reliable small block, a tough 4L60E 4-speed deals power to a proven Ford 9-inch. That first class axle pushes a custom chassis on a tubular 4-link that's finished with modern coil-over-shocks. At the front of that caged and boxed skeleton, a predictable Mustang II-style front-clip centers power rack-and-pinion steering between modern bags and tubular control arms. Serious stops are provided by four power-assisted discs. Spent gases are jettisoned via aluminized pipes, which growl through glasspack-style mufflers. And at the corners, chromed bonspeed blades spin 225/40ZR18 Goodyears in front of 295/40ZR20 Continentals.

CRAZY COOL COMFORT

Pop the car's predictable Coach Doors and you'll reveal a custom-tailored cabin that's both stylish and comfortable. Contoured buckets stretch tight leather under two-point belts and billet levers. A conservative dash hangs bright TPI-Tech Instrumentation above modern Kenwood audio and Vintage Air climate control. A booted Lokar shifter rides a flowing console that's garnished with a sculpted armrest and switches for modern power windows. The driver spins a polished and leather-wrapped steering wheel around a polished, tilting column. And details are on point, with niceties like rich carpet and custom side panels leading a custom-upholstered trunk.

Whether you're a diehard street rod fan, or a just casual enthusiast looking for a choice classic, this fanciful Ford is a great fit! Featuring timeless styling and an all-American V8, this cool coupe will turn plenty of heads without breaking the bank. Call, click or visit https://www.RKMotors.com for more information!
