So, you've undoubtedly checked out the photos of this awesome Ford De Luxe, and you've probably formed a few thoughts and opinions. Indeed, this classic is a very cool custom that was built to turn heads. And yes, it is capable of effortlessly transforming into the centerpiece of an octane-laced art exhibit. However, this trick sedan isn't just some stiff show queen that's been wrapped in pretty paint. It's a bona fide show stopper that can also be easily cruised down the strip! Looking for an exclusive classic that poses well and kicks asphalt? Check out this fantastic Ford!

DELUXE DIGS

When you set your sights on creating something legit and truly unique, you just can't go wrong starting with vintage Detroit style. Thankfully, the folks who bolted this Forty together certainly know how to massage attractive factory fodder into a sweet, show stopping custom. Living life as storied Ford metal that was kept solid for decades, this all-steel classic methodically transformed from a cool project into cool headliner. A big reason for that headlining status is a sinuous profile that was bathed in a brilliant combination of Burgundy and Champagne two-stage. And today, this street rod struts as a dreamy pavement pounder that's poised to claim trophies and sure to turn heads!

Of course, it takes more than slick paint and a few body modifications to impress the hot rod crowd, and a closer look at this beast reveals a roster of impressive detailing. The show starts with a polished bumper, which fans Deco guards and a “Ford” branded bar in front of a two-tone De Luxe grille. That polished and painted grate leads stainless-trimmed headlights and a stainless-trimmed hood that's founded at a power antenna and polished wipers. Those blades clear a one-piece windshield, which fronts a tinted greenhouse that's caged between a flush Center High Mount Stop Lamp and billet mirrors. Matted running boards trace a stainless-trimmed profile, which hangs factory door handles in front of a red-trimmed fuel cap. And at the back of the car, a second polished bumper fans more Deco guards and a second “Ford” branded bar behind an ornate deck handle, requisite chevron taillights and an ornate “V8” emblem.

STROKED POWER

Pop the hood and you'll find 383 cubic inches of spry Chevy stroker that was sourced directly from the pros at Kearney, Nebraska's BluePrint Engines! At the top of that dressed and detailed mill, a polished air cleaner wraps a reusable filter element around a big Holley 4-barrel that's wired with braided lines, an electric choke and a reliable Lokar linkage. That quality carb caps a lightweight aluminum intake, which feeds aluminum BluePrint Engines heads that are dressed with a polished breather and finned valve covers. The fires get lit by loomed and sleeved cables, which milk an aftermarket distributor and a hot Procomp Electronics coil. Modern pulleys cinch pliable V-belts around a polished water pump, Tuff Stuff power steering, a polished AC compressor and a Powermaster alternator. Spent gases traverse coated Sanderson block huggers. Cooling comes courtesy of a proven Griffin radiator, which fronts a corrugated tube and quick electric puller fans. Naturally, the car's clean engine bay features first rate details, like a polished dip stick, a polished expansion tank and a polished brake booster. And it all adds up to 425 dyno-proven horsepower and 427 lb./ft. of dyno-proven torque!

MODERN DRIVE

The bottom of this awesome resto-mod is just as impressive as its slick exterior and tidy engine bay. Behind the mean motor, a tough 700R4 4-speed twists torque to a sturdy Ford 8-inch that's finished with a posi-traction differential and easy 3.00 gears. That proven drivetrain pushes a traditional leaf spring rear-clip, which gets led by a familiar Monte Carlo front-clip. Turns come courtesy of smooth power steering. Power-assisted stops are provided by two discs, two drums and a small proportioning valve. Exhaust is handled by aluminized pipes, which snake through great sounding Dynomax mufflers. And power rolls through chromed Vision blades, which spin 205/65R15 Hankook Optimos in front of 235/75R15 Hankook Optimos.

CUSTOM CRUISE

Much nicer than simple factory fodder, this Ford's custom cockpit flows well with its superfly exterior thanks to Greenville, South Carolina's The Bucket Stitch. Modern, “V8” branded seats float red-piped vinyl between a wood console and modern shoulder belts. A stylish dash stacks crisp VDO telemetry next to controls for Hot Rod Air conditioning and wood-trimmed Pioneer audio that, thanks to quality Ron Francis wiring, slinks sound through snazzy, “V8” branded speakers. Color-keyed carpet frames billet foot pedals and a tall Lokar shifter between custom side panels, which stack wood armrests in front of modern, power-operated windows. The driver spins an attractive, “V8” branded steering wheel around a polished, tilting column. And the passengers stack supplies in a custom-upholstered trunk.

Lust worthy, fully sorted and ready to turn heads, this awesome Ford is an excellent combination of cool looks and reliable performance. Call, click or visit http:///www.RKMotors.com for more information.
