Ground Up Built Ford Coupe 221 V8 3spd Manual Attractive Color Combo ///
With its reliable Flathead V8, tough 3-speed transmission and completely unaltered body, this Ford was undoubtedly built to cruise and enjoy. Shopping for a cool old hot rod to parade up and down Main Street next summer? Here's your next classic! With their wind-swept design and classic good looks, Ford's early 1940s offerings have always been coveted and highly desirable. Not surprisingly, gearheads, customizers and 80 years' worth of dedicated fans have elevated these cars to some of hot rodding's greatest cultural icons. And this awesome Ford Business Coupe has, with the help of a detailed, frame-off restoration, been transformed into one smooth-driving show queen. As the company's final Henry Ford-fueled innovation, the Ford V8 remains a durable, torque-rich powerplant that, thanks to solid engineering, has established an unmatched reputation in the kustom and collector car community. And, in keeping with tradition, this stellar classic is powered by a correct, 221 cubic inch flathead V8 that, thanks to relatively tame 6.12 to 1 compression, makes roughly 90 horsepower. A correct 3-speed manual proves 'simple is good' by doing an excellent job of twisting an authentic, banjo-style rear end. Steering is, of course, manual. Four drum brakes, hydraulically actuated for the 1938 model year, are a welcome addition and a big performance upgrade. And everything rides on stainless-trimmed steelies, which spin fresh 6.00-16 Coker Classic whitewalls around gorgeous, “V8” branded hub caps. Between the doors, there's a big, heavily bolstered seat that's wrapped in crisp red vinyl. A stylish Briarwood Brown dash hangs attractive stainless trim around unique Bakelite buttons and simple telemetry. And in front of the driver, a large-diameter steering wheel frames a “V8” branded column. Call, click or visit https://www.RKMotors.com for more information on this awesome Ford coupe!
