1934 Ford Coupe
1934 Ford Coupe
In 1891, Henry Ford joined Edison Illuminating Company and got promoted as a Chief Engineer in 1893. At this time, he had enough money and time to pursue his curiosity and talent and started working on gasoline engines. His dream of building a gasoline engine became a reality by the end of 1893, fifteen years after he built his first steam engine. In 1896 he completed his work on his first horseless carriage, called the “Quadricycle”. He sold this vehicle to support the development of his second vehicle. He was inspired by Edison to build cars. In 1896, Ford had a meeting with Thomas Edison, where Edison approved of his automobile experimentation. And the rest as they say is history.
For consignment a fiberglass version of a hot rodded 1934 Ford coupe. No rust to deal with, all smooth surfaces, and well minded gaps. A custom interior with modern conveniences, and a snappy engine under the hood will provide years of carefree enjoyment in a car that is nearly 85 years old, or at least appears it in spirit.
Fine crafted beautifully molded fiberglass curved lines are presented throughout this car. A simple trim spear runs the mid section and dies gracefully in a curve to match the rear of the car. This 3-window coupe has been chopped a bit and has a custom cowl engine cover with some viewing openings also for cooling the hot engine under the cowl. The “shield” style grille with vertical ribs curves gracefully downward where it joins the front fenders which flutter like a butterfly's wings outward then upward to frame the front wheels and tires. These join with running boards on either side and then into the rear fenders which go with the flow of the trunk and back of this rodder. Nicely chromed bumpers in front and back and all else shaved from this car gives it a beautiful clean overall line. Chromed Weld wheels are in all 4 corners all wrapped with Goodrich Radial T/A's.
A swing of the suicide doors and we see just great two tone gray speckled tweed broadcloth covering the panels. This continues to the interior buckets with dark gray inserts and lighter outside bolsters and surrounds as well as built in headrests. The remainder of the vertical interior panels are also covered in this speckled tweed, giving the interior a very sophisticated look. Between the chairs is a custom made console which houses the gearshift lever, centralized tachometer and wiper buttons. Above is the purple painted dash which has within it a central speedometer, other gauges and an AM/FM/CD radio now where the passenger glovebox would normally be. Fronting this informational menagerie is a tilt column, and rally leather wrapped steering wheel. Heating is provided for this car, and along with the nicely preserved charcoal gray carpet, you're all buttoned up and ready for the ride. I'll give it an 'A' ticket!
Peering underneath the cowled hood, we see a purple topped fuel injected 302ci Mustang V8 which has been completely rebuilt. All parts are like new and consigner stated that this car has the mileage clocked from the build date which would put its use at a cool 2,437, barely broken in! On back is a 5-speed manual transmission pushing power back to a 10-bolt rear. Nice job on the presentation with just a hint of the purple and no corrosion or rust.
A solid frame with the molded fiberglass bod attached, and certainly no rust in sight. Nicely painted black suspension and components some in stainless steel. Rack and pinion steering is upfront, 4 wheel disc brakes all around and coil over suspension gives this rod a smooth ride. Noted is the purple engine pan below with no runs drips or errors to be seen.
This car fired right up and floated like a butterfly to the test track where it stung like a bee. Plenty of power with the injection, the 5-speed shifted easily, and offered up a low RPM highway cruise. The interior was comfortable and roomy, and all functions were working just fabulously.
There is something to be said about a fiberglass reproduction cars when it comes to near perfection, reliability, and no rust. You'll be able to drive this car to shows and needn't carry a box of wrenches just in case some misfortune would befall you on the mechanical side..it ain't gonna happen with this purple beauty!
