After all, his initally just looks like a top-of-the-line classic Ford, ut look closer and it's the small details that let you in on the hot V8 under the hood.Everyone loves the sleek shoebox look of Ford's first post-war design. It was fairly groundbreaking when it first appeared, hich is why it became the darling of the custom car crowds. This legacy is seen on added features like the eyelids on the headlights, un visor, ual spotlights, ear wheel covers, nd wide whitewall tires. Of course another reason why these show so well is all the brightwork that details everything, rom the bullet-nose grille, o the trunk hinges. But the actual body is relatively free of ornamentation, hich allows the deep shine of the burgundy to really pop on this Ford's upright shoulders. All of this superior shine points to someone caring about this coupe enough to give it a detailed and expensive restoration.The interior was given a makeover that respects the original design, et adds a few modern functional upgrades. Bench seats fore and aft are trimmed in striped fabric and gray vinyl, o it has a '50s sensibility that's still a bit premium. Matching door panels are likewise pretty authentic, nd all the factory moldings and hardware were retained. That cool two-spoke steering wheel, ith bright trim, s pure 1950s space-race cool. In fact, he whole dash stays true to the original, ncluding gauges like the speedometer and clock. You even still have the AM radio!

If you think it's sacrilegious to install a Chevy small-block V8 under the hood of a Ford, ou'll change your mind when you realize that there is no better way to get a reliable and infinitely upgradeable powertrain. In fact, his V8 appears pretty fresh, nd already has a bunch of Edelbrock performance goodies installed, ncluding the fined valve covers, ir cleaner, nd a four-barrel carburetor. This motor provides plenty of power for the shoebox Ford, nd makes some nice gutsy noises out of the dual exhaust. The engine is also backed up by GM's trusty TH350 three-speed automatic transmission.
