The exceptionally curvaceous body of the 1947 Ford Deluxe Coupe is a great place to start for the full hot rod treatment. So when you have a sleeker style, A/C interior, an overdrive transmission, and plenty of V8 power, it makes for an all-around fun custom.
The all-steel body is instantly attractive for all the curves it brings to the streets. The red paint is even a later upgrade so it retains a nice gloss to showcase the arcs. You'll also want to appreciate the custom details .....
of this coupe. As a true street machine, they deleted the bumpers, shaved the trim, added a flush door handle, frenched the license plate, and added blue-dot tail lights. This sleeker/cleaner style means the brightwork really pops everywhere from the classic grille to the upgraded 18-inch Ridler wheels.
The interior is both vintage and upgraded. The tweed cloth has a classic look and a comfy feel. It goes nice with the two rows of bench seats, and that's the kind of vintage layout that will have you looking for drive-ins. And speaking of going places, upgrades like the tinted windows and air conditioning make the journeys more comfortable. Plus, the banjo-style steering wheel, tilt column, and Dakota Digital gauges make for a nice driver's setup. If you're looking for perfection, you may decide to restore the power windows, upgrade the radio, or fully restomod the seats and setup. But what we like is how this one currently provides the right mix of classic style with some nice cruiser comforts already added in.
Part of this true cruiser attitude is also rooted in the upgrades under the hood. You have a clean and bright presentation of a 350 cubic-inch Chevy V8. It inhales deeply with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and an Edelbrock aluminum intake, and it exhales with a sweet tune out of the header-fed dual exhaust. It's also supported by good features, like an HEI distributor and an upgraded radiator with electric fan. It provides good power with a strong delivery. And because this is a good all-around driver, you have upgrades like a tubular A-arm front suspension, power brakes with front discs, and a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-ready overdrive.
This is a great custom cruiser from day one, and there's a lot of potential to put your own personal stamp on this coupe, too. So it's the right cruiser that you can truly make your own. Call today!!!
