As if the “through the roof” curb appeal of this 1939 Ford Coupe Streetrod wasn't enough to make it an absolute standout, it also offers an outstanding driving experience, courtesy of an array of well-chosen upgrades. This street machine is a head turner of the highest order and, as much as onlookers will welcome its approach, you'll equally welcome every opportunity to get behind the wheel. It's logged only light usage since its build, so its best days are still very much ahead.
This classic features a thoroughly inspired appearance that mixes elements of vintage and modern style to result in a well-equipped ride that will no doubt attract attention, and it's also well-suited to handle frequent driving in everyday conditions. The style of the exterior is really something to behold - check out that prominent front end and the flowing fenders giving way to those broad running boards. Its magnetic purple body is clad almost entirely in steel, so this vintage Ford is well-equipped to stand up to the tests of both time and usage and the pair of fiberglass fenders in back lighten its curb weight and help create a favorable power to weight ratio. The deletion of bumpers at both ends and shaved door handles allow the dramatic curvature and paint job to take center stage, while an upgraded suspension also affords it an aggressive, lowered stance that fits it perfectly.
Light colored tweed seats in front and back, bracketed by matching two-tone door panels are among a number of highlights that make for an eye-catching interior. Up front, the dark purple dash houses an extensive collection of gauges, including a speedometer and tach on the driver's side that are joined by a quintet of AutoMeter displays on the passenger's side. With the featured Sony head unit pairing with a set of speakers that includes a boxed pair in back, this '39 offers a quality audio experience and the underdash air conditioning system is in top form to keep everyone cool during this warmer weather. In back, the tweed-covered trunk is ornamented by a pair of inner fender wells left in their raw steel state and it's definitely a winning look.
A whole host of mechanical and performance upgrades makes this a Streetrod a standout ride. The 350 cubic inch V8 beneath its hood wears a polished TPI intake manifold and color matched valve covers and is fed by fuel injection whose effect is amplified by a side mount air induction system. Turn the key, tap on the gas and you'll hear a nice, deep note emanating out of its headers leading to a dual Flowmaster exhaust. The engine pairs with a 4-speed automatic transmission with an overdrive gear that makes for good highway manners and farther forward an aluminum radiator teams with an electric fan to keep operating temperatures under control. You can only imagine the looks you'll get while behind the wheel cruising the Interstate and while you're out there, it won't take long to notice the outstanding ride quality and precise handling this vintage Ford has, courtesy of a C4 Corvette suspension that includes coilovers in front and a multi-link suspension in back. Power disc brakes at both ends bring low-effort stopping power as this well-configured cruiser prowls the asphalt on a set of 15” Budnik wheels wearing sizable 29/15/15/ Mickey Thompsons in back for excellent asphalt gripping power.
