This "All Steel" early Ford Sedan has been massaged to perfection with a NO EXPENSE spared attitude! A shocking 3 1/2 year $250,000 transformation that incorporated some of the best Craftsman in the Business! It's first mission was to tour the Show Circuit! After bringing satisfaction to many, it's second mission was to be driven and enjoyed by the owner! Not your typical Show Car, tested just over 2,000 miles and ready for you! Read on Big Dog!
Let's start with the amazing transformation of it's original 38 Ford Sedan "ALL STEEL" body!! The modifications are many but ever so subtle! The creative Fabrication & Assembly was performed by RT Rods of Peoria, Arizona, which included: Radius Corners Doors/Deck Lid, Front Opening Hood, Closed Areas Under Body & Doors at Running Boards, Smooth Running Boards, Bumpers Moved Closer to Body, Added Gravel Shields Between Bumpers/Body and Completely Smoothed the exterior with the exception of the Factory Hood Ornament! VERY NICE!!
It's wonderful body was then turned over to "The Paint Shop" of Phoenix, Arizona who specializes in stunning custom paintwork for hand-built motorcycles, Harley-Davidson's and Hot Rods! They are consistently featured on the Discovery Channel and in Motorcycle & Hot Rod Magazines! You can view their website @ www.CrispPaint.com. The amazing custom finish is created with PPG Prizmatique Gold w/Diamond Dust transitioned with PPG Black Reverse Flames! Yes, the Flames carry over into the inside engine compartment sides and firewall! The Pin-striping by Ron Hernandez consists of Gold Leaf and Candy Apple Red air brush at the flames! Simply Incredible from Jamb to Jamb!
The Interior is custom designed by World Famous Ron "The Stitcher" Mangus of Bloomfield, California! In fact, this Street Rod is featured on the opening page if his website as an example of his Superior Craftsmanship!!! To see the complete feature, click here>> www.customautointeriors.com! I would say it does not get much better than this!! Every wonderful stitch, from the Headliner to the Trunk, is sewn over "FINE LEATHER"! The Front Seat is a "Glide Engineering" fitted with a custom built center console that moves with the seat! The console contains Radio/CD, cruise control, power window controls and two drink holders! The Rear seat is custom designed for this car! The Trunk was designed with removable panels for easy access to Air Ride Tanks/Pumps, Amp, and Battery. The original Tool Tray is still available under the carpet! Other Interior features include: ICE COLD Air Conditioning, Polished Billet Steering Column, custom fit Dakota Digital Dash and Tons of Billet! Need I Say More???
The chassis that supports this creative ride is a "TCI" with air ride suspension, front and rear! The Front End is fully Independent with "TCI" Rack-N-Pinion Power Steering! Out back resides a Currie 9" Ford rear end with 350 gears! Power inserted between these Sexy Legs is a ZZ4 Crate Engine re-fitted with Keith Black Rods & Pistons to lower the compression for a polished Weiand 671 Blower that's topped with Dual Edeldrock 4bbl Carbs fitted with custom made billet K&N Air Filters! Tons of polished Billet and Chrome! The Impressive Smooth Power is transferred thru a built 700R4 Automatic Transmission! Rounding out the rolling stock is Colorado Custom Billet Wheels wrapped with fat "Nito" Radials, 225/40/ R17 front, 255/45/18 rear! Enough, OK but just a bit more!!!
