COMPLETELY CUSTOM FRAME-OFF RESTO MOD, 350 CI, 9" REAR, FRONT DISC, R134, TILT
This 1935 Ford is one impressive hauler. It's beautifully finished, of course, but the longer you look, the more details you'll find to delight the eye. That's the true hallmark of a quality rod, and this one delivers in more than one way.
The body is steel, but the fenders are 'glass, and on this truck, that full-fendered look hits all the right notes. The overall execution has been completed very nicely, and you'll note how well it fits together, with doors that fit flush and no worries about previous repairs or damage coming back to haunt you. This sucker's about as close to a new 1935 Ford as you're going to get. The deep burgundy paint lets the shape do most of the talking, working in harmony instead of as a solo. Tasteful pinstriping accents some of the truck's more noteworthy details, and the stylized "V8" emblem on the tailgate is one of those wonderful touches that I mentioned earlier. The top has a 3.5-inch chop, the windshield has been Vee'd, and it retains original pieces like the cowl lamps and Ford ovals on the hood to keep the vintage look. Trick billet bumperettes offer a modicum of protection for the front fenders, and a custom rear pan compliments the rear. In the bed you'll find gorgeous mahogany-stained wood whose deep, rich, red color almost matches the bodywork, putting a neat twist on an old favorite.
Tan leather buckets from a late-model work well inside and the combination of leather and fabrics makes it feel far more upscale than just one or the other would. All the soft parts were custom stitched for just this truck, including the headliner and neat-fitting floor mats which are bound in leather themselves. Billet inserts in the dash carry the clean VDO instruments and make up the glove box door and the controls for the neatly-integrated HVAC system are in the center. You'll also appreciate the original cowl vent, which provides ventilation when it's not hot enough to need the A/C and an AM/FM/CD stereo fills the cab with sound. Built for comfort and easily capable of long-distance hauls, they didn't forget to also make it beautiful inside.
For reliability and performance, it's hard to beat a small-block Chevy powerplant. It fits nicely under the Ford's pointed hood and is dressed up with all the familiar gear like an Edelbrock carburetor, chrome accessories tucked in tight to the block, and a few shiny bits that tie the whole truck together quite nicely. The firewall was custom made to accommodate the Chevy's rear-mounted distributor, with form following function in a very trick way, and there's massive cooling available from the radiator up front. It's backed by a TH350 3-speed automatic and a Ford 9-inch rear end, and it rightfully shows a few signs of use-who wouldn't take this one out on the road? The dual exhaust system has the right mellow hot rod tone but hushes on the highway, and the combination of big-n-little Torque Thrusts with Firestone radials looks just right.
