All-Steel 3-window Coupe Streetrod 460ci Ford V8 Automatic Leather A/C ///
This hot coupe's smooth and solid steel began life as a run-of-the-mill 1936 Model 48 that was maintained, driven and paraded for most of its life. Today, thanks to a detailed, body-off restoration, that old school metal has been stripped, strengthened and tastefully massaged into an enduring aesthetic that will simply never go out of style. Employ this coupe's removable hood panels and you'll reveal a massive, 460 cubic inch Ford V8 that provides both great power and great drivability. That confident engine is paired with a cooled C6 3-speed, which spins smooth torque to a shortened Ford 9-inch that's finished with a limited-slip differential and sturdy, 3.28 gears. In front of that drivetrain, a familiar Mustang II front-clip cages fluid rack-and-pinion steering between tubular control arms, a Welder Series sway bar and quality Aldan coil-overs. Behind that drivetrain, a triangulated 4-bar rear-half makes excellent use of more tubular control arms and a second pair of Aldan coil-overs. Stops come courtesy of power-assisted discs and drums. And polished Billet Specialties Legacies turn simulated spinners inside grippy Michelins. Twist this awesome 48's handles and you'll find a custom leather interior that continues the theme of classic cool. The driver and one passenger perch on French-stitched Chocolate leather that's stretched around power-operated Eldorado buckets. In front of those thrones, a '54 Oldsmobile dash flows into a custom console that's stacked with Vintage Air climate control, a spry Auto Meter tachometer and Custom Autosound audio. And the driver commands the scene through a short Lokar shifter and a tilting, reduced-diameter steering wheel that was cribbed straight from a 1940 Ford. You really can't ask for a cooler street rod than this sublime Ford! Call, click or visit https://www.RKMotors.com for more information.
