1934 Ford 40 Roadster
1934 Ford Roadster
Popular among crooks and police, the 1934 Roadster could get away from, or catch, anything out there at the time. In a letter to a surprised Henry Ford, famous bank robber Clyde Barrow wrote: "I have drove [sic] Fords exclusively when I could get away with one. For sustained speed and freedom from trouble the Ford has got ever [sic] other car skinned and even if my business hasen't [sic] been strictly legal it don't hurt enything [sic] to tell you what a fine car you got in the Ford V-8.”
For consignment a very nicely and tastefully rodded '34 Ford Roadster. Beautiful paint, pristine convertible top, a TCI chassis with a Wescott Body. Nicely finished interior with some custom stitching, and a powerful 1969 mill plopped in upfront, will have you grabbing attention, as well as the winding road ahead.
As noted, a Wescott Body draped in Burgundy, with a smattering of some flourish pin striping to add contrast. Chrome is beautifully done, and fenders and running boards, as well as body panels are straight and true. Wind wings have been added to both sides. American Racing chrome Torque Thrust II wheels are all around. Shaved suicide doors, pristine front grille, and correct headlights add bling to the exterior. A very nice canvas convertible top in Sand color, provides a good contrast to the burgundy body. With a peek at the underside of this car, and the presentation carries through as expected, clean and definitely rust free.
Tweed cloth with contrasting vinyl sides cover the two interior buckets. Some custom stitching in burgundy noting '34 Ford is emblazoned into the headrests. Matching vinyl door panels with chromed “Roadster” brite work, and some new door pulls are seen. A burgundy metal dash is peppered with chromed panels, and guilded VDO gauges, and knobs. An adjustable steering column is noted and fronted by a wood steering wheel. A new AM/FM radio with CD, Bluetooth, MP3 unit by Boss surrounds you with any choice of music you can dream up. A power antenna is there for convenience. Tan carpeting covers the floors and presents in nice condition.
The 350ci V8 circa 1969 sports plenty of chrome and is clean enough to have a meal on. The TH350 transmission puts power to an 8” Ford differential. Gleaming headers snake from the side of the mill to the underside and make their way to the rear of the car ending in chrome tips. Also, underneath is seen rear drum brakes, and front discs, with a new independent front suspension and a new rack and pinion steering unit.
