DESCRIPTIONAre you one of those discerning gearheads who wants the excellent driving experience of modern street rod technology AND the authenticity of a real antique car? After 76 years in the hands of its original owner this world class Ford coupe was shipped to Dragone Classic Motorcars in Bridgeport, Connecticut where it underwent a celebrity style restoration which included $96K worth of new parts and a spectacular coat of Mercedes-Benz Glasurit Dark Gray Metallic paint. After the body was smooth as glass, Smeding Performance in Rancho Cordova, California equipped it with a 383 extreme stroker V8 which creates a stout 450 horsepower and 470 lb./ft. of dust swirling torque! Underneath the car, a custom, completely polished independent front suspension and a completely polished four link rear suspension provide a modern ride and great handling characteristics. At the center of that custom suspension, a fresh TCI Auto Street Fighter Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed automatic, which is equipped with a TCI Auto 3000/3400 Street Fighter torque converter, sends power to a Currie nine inch rear end which carries stout 31 spline axles and ground pounding 3.55 gears. All that excellent metal is bolted to a Total Cost Involved frame which is painted metallic blue and sandwiched between stainless hardware and fresh Bitchin floor pans. Quick stops are provided by a frame mounted Summit Racing vacuum booster which pushes fluid through stainless AN lines to polished Wilwood Hi-Tech four piston calipers and giant 12 inch rotors. And at the corners of the car, 15 inch Coker powder coated smoothies are mounted to 6.70-15 front and 8.20-15 rear Firestone 2.25 whitewall tires. Take a look inside the car and you'll find a spectacular leather interior that was professionally installed by Dragone Classic Motorcars in Bridgeport, Connecticut. If you're in the market for an immaculate show stopper which features the best of everything, don't let this awesome opportunity pass you by!
