Frame Up Built Roadster Streetrod 350 V8 Automatic TH350 A/C ///
Mixing a hot rodded small block with substantial drivetrain upgrades and a comfortable custom interior, this well-built Ford is a heck of a lot of fun! The car's smooth and solid body began life as high quality fiberglass that was carefully sculpted into some of the coolest automotive curves to ever leave Dearborn, Michigan. And, during a detailed build, that rugged resin was married to steel running boards, and dressed in a striking exposition of custom pinstripes and vivid 2-stage. Fold the tidy hood and you'll find a 350 cubic inch Chevrolet small block that, thanks in part to a .030 overbore, churns big horsepower into ample torque. A trusted Turbo-Hydramatic 350 3-speed utilizes a B&M Holeshot converter to spin a requisite Ford 9-inch. That smooth drivetrain pushes a triangulated 4-bar rear-clip, which follows tubular control arms with modern coil-over-shocks. Opposite that clip, an independent front-half frames two more modern coil-overs with polished Heidts control arms. Turns come courtesy of manual rack-and-pinion steering. Stops are provided by a predictable combination of discs and drums. And everything hangs in a fully boxed chassis, which rides body-matched and stainless-trimmed steelies that twist 'big 'n little' BF Goodrich Momentums. Pop the doors and you'll find a custom Saddle interior that's warm and welcoming. A pleated leather seat surfs rich carpet that's fashioned around a short Lokar shifter. In front of that seat, a body-matched dash frames Stewart Warner telemetry in a centralized, engine-turned instrument panel. The driver strolls the boulevard through a polished, banjo-style steering wheel, which spins a leather-wrapped rim around a polished, tilting column. And everyone stays cool thanks to modern air conditioning. Mixing a high-quality build with impressive power, custom upholstery and spectacular aesthetics, this coupe is the kind of car that recruits fans wherever it goes!
