3 Window Coupe
1930 Chevrolet 3 Window Coupe
What happens when you take an all steel '30 Ford body, bolt it to a rebuilt frame, drop in a modded Chevrolet V8 and pile on a list of mind blowing parts for good measure? You get one incredible street rod that instantly becomes the center of attention wherever it goes! Featuring a traditionally clean appearance, a custom leather interior and a level of detail that requires multiple looks to fully comprehend, this stunning 3-Window Coupe is a compilation of top-notch components. And what's better: it's a fully sorted, professionally finished cruiser that was built, above all else, to be driven and enjoyed. If you're the kind of enthusiast who wants an impressive classic that you can hop in, turn the key and go cruising with, your chariot has arrived!
An Arizona VIN, certainly from Arizona where it is dry dry dry, which means no snow, no salt, no winter! Just unadulterated metal.
The all steel body draped in black with a red pinstripe cutting across the beltline, great curving fenders connected by a running board and almost edible shiny chrome, announce the arrival of a real head turning monochromatic rod. Weld chromed mags wrapped by new radials are on all 4 corners. With a gleam that it could be a fishing lure, a truly fine example from way back in 1930…Chrome Bumper to Chrome Bumper. Even the custom laser cut rear dual bowtie stop lights, and the battery shutoff are outstanding additions.
Comfortable black overstuffed leather buckets occupy a pristine interior, all in black with a peppering of polished aluminum knobs, cranks and chrome bezeled gauges. Carpeting envelops the floor, and meets up to truly custom padded door panels with a padded bowtie logo, broken up by a custom designed swooping door handle/arm rest. The glistening dash housing all the essential gauges, is centered above the automatic shifter. A leather covered chromed inside banjo style steering wheel harkens back to the era, and is of smaller proportions to the original for easy in and out of the car.
Peeking under the front cowling your eye is caught by a massive 350ci V8 with a Turbo 350 transmission. Custom Edelbrock valve covers, and air cleaner housing, as well as plenty of chromed engine parts. Powder coated headers snake their way under the car. One of the few classics that the mill attracts as much attention as the car.
One word could be used to describe the underside of this rod, and that is showroom! Dual exhaust work their way back and sport chromed rear tubing. Beautiful front suspension, and disc brakes are seen, as well as in the rear the drums have been totally rebuilt. A massive differential connects the axles and ultra-wide tires. Some wood is noted in the drivers pan area, and is varnished and new looking.
This midnight prowler (actually a Ford 3-Window Coupe) can sneak up on its prey, and bite, or just sit there and make visual noise. Excellent restoration completed in 2013 by Walt's Hot Rods form Downingtown, Pennsylvania, where no stone has been left unturned.
