One of the most handsome automotive designs ever created, the 1934 Ford is an enduring stylistic icon, bringing cutting-edge visual cues and reliable V-8 power to the masses. Hot rodders naturally gravitated to it and ’34 Fords have ruled the Bonneville salt and drag strips ever since. Popular culture, including the 1974 cult classic movie “The California Kid” and ZZ Top’s smash 1983 album Eliminator helped solidify the ’34 Ford’s enduring legend.
Stunningly finished in bright red, this recently built showstopper features a 3-window fibreglass body, with $22,000 invested in the paintwork and beautifully trimmed leather interior alone. Power is provided by a rebuilt late-model Chevy 350 V-8 (MOE exempt), backed by an automatic transmission for cruising ease. Other great features include A/C and heater, power windows, and a highly detailed engine bay chock full of polished and plated components. The hood is steel.
Only an approximate 7,000 miles have been traveled so far. Show awards for 2012 include 1st in Class at the Barrie Car Show, where its excellent fit and finish garnered praise from the judges. At Orillia, the '34 was Runner Up in the Pre-1939 Class. Cutting a classic profile and built only with the very best name-brand parts with far too much to list here, this incredible, show-quality ’34 Ford 3-Window coupe is complete with a custom car cover and equally ready for show or go!
