If you like the looks of the 1934 Ford Cabriolet, but would like something a little more modern underneath, this handsome streetrod might fit the bill. Powered by a strong 350 V8 and loaded with 4-wheel power disc brakes, and a supple suspension, this is the '34 Ford you could drive every day and show off at every red light.
The body is, of course, fiberglass, but these days that's no demerit, especially when someone else has already done all the sanding and fitting for you. .....
Titled as a 2005 ASVE, this body style offers the same open-air good looks as a roadster, but with the added benefit of a removable hard-top you can take it anywhere, anytime without worries. The original-style suicide doors have been shaved of their respective handles, the hinges have been hidden, and they pop open with the touch of a button, and the sweeping fenders give it a classic look. Fit and finish are well done, and the maroon paint is a very refreshing change from the usual reds and blacks you see at every show. Clearly someone had another mission in mind when putting this car together, one that was as much luxury as hot rod performance. A one-piece hood, a custom grille insert painted gold to match the swooping body accent and pin-striping on the rear end, and flush-mounted tear-drop taillights give it a fully finished look that neatly bridges tradition and function. Man, what a great looking car!
Tan ostrich leather covers the interior, further reinforcing this car's luxury-oriented personality. The split-bench seat is a custom piece, and the rest of the interior was built around it. Door panels are simply elegant affairs with matching tan vinyl and ostrich inserts that warm things up and offer some visual interest. Matching burgundy paint covers the dash, which is full of gorgeous vintage-style gauges from TPI-Tech, and there's a custom steering wheel on an Ididit tilt column. A B&M floor shifter at short reach and an AM/FM/CD stereo give you the kind of comfort and convenience that make any car a pleasure to drive, especially one with this hotrod's great custom looks. Overhead there's a tan hard top that seals nicely on top of the fiberglass body, and there's a fully carpeted and upholstered trunk that provides plenty of space for your car show goodies.
That's no garden-variety small block under the hood, it's a powerful 350 cubic inch Chevy motor, famous for prodigious torque and a keen ability to rev. The engine bay is neatly arranged and easy to service, and thanks to the wonders of an Edelbrock 600CFM 4-barrel carburetor and aluminum intake, it starts instantly and is ready to rumble. Accel HEI lights the fires and there's race grade equipment throughout, from the shorty headers to high-torque starter. The dual exhaust has a throaty rumble, and the suspension offers an AirRide system, a tubular front end and 4-bar trailing arm set-up in the rear. A 700R4 automatic overdrive transmission with trans-cooler spins a 9-inch Ford axle out back and disc brakes are at all four corners to ensure modern levels of braking performance. Handsome and shiny staggered Ridler chrome wheels are in excellent condition and wear 225/45/18 front and 245/45/120 rear performance radials that ride great and look right on the full-fendered Ford.
Ultra-clean, comfortable and packing a potent powertrain, this '34 Ford is a no-compromises rod that over-delivers in every way. Call today!
