The best features, the most interesting body style, an adjustable air ride suspension, overdrive transmission, and fuel-injected V8 power – this 1936 Ford Phaeton loves to turn heads and burn rubber.
The Phaeton body style has a thin roofline that gives the car a great open feeling even with the crisp black folding top in place. That gives this American classic a very European feel. The steel body on this car helps give the slick purple paint a hard shine, and so the overall appearance is both aggressive and glamorous. And like any good classic, there's plenty of room for brightwork. The waterfall grille, curved bumpers, trunk hinges, and windshield frame really add extra sophistication. But the shine that you notice the most are the wheels. With the spinner center caps and a 14/15-inch front/rear stance for added distinction, they add an instant aggression to this classy package.
The interior does a great job of mixing a vintage feeling with modern comfort. This starts with the seats. Cloth is an excellent material to have in a car that's meant to be open to the world. Plus, there are individual buckets up front that are bolstered for all-day comfort. But while this is clearly an upgrade, the cloth pattern still has a nice vintage style. The banjo-style steering wheel also has a classic style, but it has a smaller diameter for better grip and it's mounted on a polished tilt column. And while your dash gauges are vintage pieces, the Lokar shifter, SunPro auxiliary readouts, and air ride controls let you know this is far more modern than a '30s machine.
The butterfly hood looks terrific wherever you park this Phaeton, and it also reveals some serious power stuffed within the engine bay. This is a 350 cubic-inch crate V8. While you'll enjoy looking at features like the polished valve covers and upgraded pulleys, the real treat is the fuel injection that upgrades the performance and drivability. Plus, shorty headers add power while also giving a sweet sound to the glasspack-style dual exhaust. And don't forget to check out the undercarriage photos. There you're going to spot some of the best upgrades around, like the Mustang II-style tubular A-arm front suspension, four-link rear, and front disc brakes. Plus, the 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission makes it easy to enjoy this classic near or far. And the adjustable air ride system means you can lower this one down to the ground whenever you arrive.
Complete with maintenance records, you're getting a stellar package that lets you show up and show off. Something this cool never waits for long, so don't miss out, call today!
