What do you get when you combine the smooth aesthetics of a show-worthy street rod with the spry spirit of an old school muscle car? This incredible Ford custom! With the universal appeal of high dollar eye candy, and the road going prowess of a fully sorted cruiser, this slick coupe is a unique, well-built classic that provides its owner the best of both worlds. And what's better: you can have your showstopper and drive it too for a fraction of the money and time it takes to complete a ground-up build!

PRO-BUILT POISE

A head-turning street rod that's dashed with a fair amount of muscle car swagger, this striking Ford features a detailed, custom appearance that's highlighted by a spectacular coat of radiant red two-stage. That pigment, sprayed by Lumberton, North Carolina's James's Body Shop, showcases a solid, all-steel profile that was ground-up restored by Lumberton, North Carolina's Taylor's Rod and Custom. And today, this classic rolls as one lights-out head turner that's virtually guaranteed to make you weak in the knees!

There really isn't much you can do to make an early '40s Ford more attractive. The car's streamlined styling was a homerun when originally introduced and, today, it's a stunning example of some of the strongest elements of the highly regarded Art Deco movement. At the front of this cherry custom, broad fenders center a textured De Luxe Grille between stainless-trimmed H4 headlights and LED marker lamps. An elegant, Ford-branded hood points classy, V8-branded stainless between a guarded bumper and a tinted greenhouse that's cleared by polished wipers. Extended doors swing factory handles and relocated mirrors over padded running boards. Extended quarters lead an extended decklid, which centers a chrome handle and more stylish Ford branding beneath a flush antenna and a frenched Center High Mount Stop Lamp. And a second guarded bumper reflects a snazzy “V8” fuel cap and LED tail lamps.

POWER FOR THE AGES

Pop the hood and you'll find 350 cubic inches of proven Chevy small block that looks good and runs great! A chromed air cleaner funnels wind through a Holley Street Avenger 4-barrel, which revs thanks to Russell hoses, an electronic choke and a quality Lokar linkage. That carb feeds a coated Edelbrock intake, which looks great between chromed breathers and chromed valve covers. The fires get lit by a reliable Delco-Remy distributor, which, with the help of a choice Lunati cam, sequences spark through loomed Taylor plug wires. Spent gases fall through coated Sanderson headers. At the front of those tubes, billet pulleys spin a polished alternator beside a polished AC compressor. At the front of those ancillaries, a flashy radiator centers a large electric puller fan between corrugated hoses and a classy “V8” cap. And the bright red mill rumbles in a detailed, body-matched engine bay that's finished with louvered inner fenders.

SEAMLESS UPGRADES

Take a long look under this classic and you'll find a roster of significant modifications that add up to impressive dynamics and big performance gains. The buff 350 hangs a finned oil pan in front of a cooled Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed that, itself, is fitted with a vented pan. That color-keyed gearbox twists power to a tough Ford 8-inch axle. That axle pushes a full Fat Man Fabrications chassis, which stacks adjustable air bags on a Mustang II-style front suspension and a 4-bar rear suspension. Tight turns are provided by power rack-and-pinion steering. Stops are quick and precise thanks to power-assisted GM discs. Miles of cruising come courtesy of a welded fuel tank. Spent gases are managed by aluminized pipes, which thread rowdy, glasspack-style mufflers. And power pounds the pavement through color-keyed Chevrolet Rally Wheels, which spin stylish Ford stainless inside 205/60R15 Americus Touring Plus and 225/70R15 Turbo Tech Radial GTs.

PRO-BUILT CUSTOM

There's no shortage of street rods with custom interiors, but a classic this cool always stands out! Installed by Lawrence Andrews of Lumberton, North Carolina's Lawrence's Upholstery, the car's custom cockpit kicks off with modern, power-operated buckets that are stitched in plush leather. A classy dash, painted up by the owners of Pineville, North Carolina's S&M Auto Paint & Body Shop, centers cool Vintage Air conditioning between VDO telemetry and Firestone air pressure controls. A polished mirror reflects a dynamic headliner, which shades flowing side panels that are dotted with factory handles, billet rests and controls for both power windows and power door locks. A tall Lokar shifter leads a 12-disc CD changer. And the driver spins a banjo-style steering wheel around metal pedals, a stalk for modern Cruise Control and a tilting column.

This striking Ford is a nicely finished classic that was built to be driven AND seen. It uses top-notch components from some of the best names in the business to create a unique custom that mixes killer personality with awesome curb appeal. Looking for a road ready hot rod that's guaranteed to draw a crowd wherever you go? Your search is officially over!
