Prepare to have all eyes on you with a rare steel 1934 Ford Ute (utility coupe) that has been given plenty of investments to give it a terrific hot rod roadster flair.
For a quick history lesson, the Ute is a popular style in Australia where the truck bed is a seamless part of the body. And while they have been doing this long before and long after Ford's Ranchero in the USA, a pre-war classic like this is a very rare sight on our shores. And it's this kind of history that's exactly why it received a thorough restoration/transformation. The glossy black was applied to the all steel body when this Ford was given a full frame-off restoration in 2005, and the way it still shines today really tells you the quality of the work. Good sheetmetal and the sleek paint really make for a terrific way to showcase the seamless profile of this truck. The bright waterfall grille, large headlights, and curvy front bumper give it classic style. And that nicely joins custom elements like the low-slung windshield that makes this a true roadster, and there's the folding tonneau cover that protects the glossy bed. And lovers of details will marvel at the whitewall tires and two-piece trim on the wheels. Plus, those red wire wheels coordinate so nicely with the pinstripe.
And the red on the outside is a nice transition to the interior, too. After all, the best roadsters that are open to the world have a fully coordinated package inside and out. And while the red gives this hot rod an aggressive streak, the supple feeling of the well-bolstered bench and the matching door panels make this a great place to spend some time. You get great classic elements like the floor shifter for the three-speed and the thin and grippy steering wheel. But as you look at the custom pinstriped dash, you'll see it has been upgraded to a full gauge package with SW readouts that includes a large tach.
When you park this one at car shows, we know you'll love lifting both side of the hood. Not only does it give the terrific butterfly effect, but also you can put this flathead V8 on full display. It has the lighter aluminum heads, tall Stromberg carb, and large oil bath air cleaner that makes this a true classic. And while that's all part of the vintage charm, don't forget to spot handy upgrades like the 12-volt electric system any hydraulic brakes.
As you look over every inch of this roadster/pickup, you can tell there was a ton spent making sure this rare Ford gets the attention it deserves. So if you love being the most unique one in any car crowd, don't let this one slip away. Call today!!!
