All-Steel Body-Off Restored Cabriolet Hotrod 302 V8 Auto A/C IRS ///
Built to turn heads and drop jaws, this striking Cabriolet wraps a spry Ford small block and stalwart Ford AOD in solid Ford steel and plush leather trim. Based on appearance, this Ford's smooth and solid steel was super clean before its detailed restoration even began. Nonetheless, that metal was subjected to a deep massage that followed a full strip with laser-straight lines and a spectacular coat of bright red 2-stage. And today, this drop-top rolls as a banner showpiece that celebrates the fusion of some of Ford's greatest design work with some of the best modern technology money can buy. Tilt this 40B's hood and you'll find 302 cubic inches of Blue Oval bliss. Behind that mill, a proven Ford AOD 4-speed spins a polished, Corvette-style axle. That drivetrain rides a sturdy aftermarket chassis that's finished with a polished, fully independent suspension. Turns come courtesy of manual rack-and-pinion steering. Stops are provided by polished, power-assisted calipers, which squeeze a combination of drilled, slotted and vented rotors. And at the corners of the chassis, aggressive Billet Specialties wheels spin 215/40R17 Kumho Ecstas in front of 255/45R20 Kumho Ecstas. One of this classic's coolest assets is a thoroughly upgraded interior that, just like the rest of the car, features just the right amount of customization. Pop the doors and you're immediately greeted by a plush bench seat. Below that seat, luxurious carpet floods metal foot pedals, a long Lokar shifter and a polished emergency brake. At the front of that rug, a tastefully modified dash seats sedate Classic Instruments telemetry amid hardware for Vintage Air climate control. And in front of the driver, a banjo-style steering wheel spins a body-matched hoop around a polished, tilting column. From its polished grille to its polished exhaust tips, this Ford is a completely sorted show stopper that's ready to hit the road today! Call, click or visit www.RKMotors.com for more information.
