Looking to make a definitive statement on the boulevard or on the show circuit? With its ultra high-impact exterior and powerful drivetrain, this 1936 Ford Cabriolet is a one of a kind, aggressively-modded street rod that's packed with great features both inside and out. It displays an impressive level of custom workmanship and offers a great combination of extreme curb appeal and outstanding driving experience for its next lucky owner.
It's always wise to start with a strong foundation on any street machine, and this Cabriolet has that step amply covered, featuring a very well-constructed steel body that sits on a sturdily constructed tubular steel chassis. That steel body has been skillfully graced with a show-stopping black exterior that's set off with blue flames. Reworked front and rear fenders and shaved door handles combine with a particularly eye-catching custom chrome front grille to give this cruiser a decidedly aggressive look. Should inclement weather ever attempt to interfere with your motoring enjoyment, you'll have black canvas convertible top at your disposal that lifts right into place as protection from the elements and folds neatly in back when not in use. The precise alignment on this Ford is evident - there are no jutting body panels or unevenness in any of the gaps between them, and even the hood recess that exposes the menacing top portion of the scorcher of a powerplant sitting below shows a great attention to detail.
Just a quick glance inside will dispel any concerns that the attention was limited to the exterior. A very impressive blue leather interior sits just inside a sturdy black roll cage, featuring a pair of bucket seats out of a '78 Ford Thunderbird that remain very well-padded and comfortable. Climb in and peer just beyond the custom aluminum steering wheel that sits on an adjustable steering column, and you'll find a full assortment of white-faced AutoMeter gauges residing in a really nice custom molded dash area that leads down to an inspired-looking center console. The roll cage serves notice that this street rod is fitted for battle, but this is a comfortable driving environment, as well. The storage area in back features a couple of very nice custom touches that include recessed flames on its walls that match those of the exterior, as well as numbering on the front wall proclaiming this street rod's '36 identity. Power windows are an unexpected convenience in a street machine like this one.
Raise the custom-made hood with its menacing forward lean, and you'll come face to face with a beast of a powerplant - a 514 cubic inch V8 that's carrying a pair of carbs sitting on top of a BDS blower for some otherworldly power. It's running and sounding great - firing right up when called upon and emitting a dominant note out of its Flowmaster exhaust. A custom-fabricated radiator teams with a transmission cooler armed with an electric fan to keep drivetrain temps in check. With disc brakes at all four corners, you'll have the fade resistant stopping power that inspires confidence during more spirited driving. Take a look underneath and you'll see a sturdy undercarriage that shows it's been well cared for and features a set of fresh-looking coilovers up front. This head-turning open-air dynamo sits on a set of 15” Halibrand wheels armed with BF Goodrich radials up front, and massive, asphalt-gripping Mickey Thompson tires in back.
