1939 Ford Other -- Additional Info:

This 1940 Ford Cabriolet is a fresh build with serious V8 power. And when you look beyond the ultra-slick presentation on the sleek body, you'll discover a custom suspension, custom A/C interior, and all the other highly detailed pieces that come from a build that took six-figures to create. For this red devil, the details are what really count. The premium Gibbons body is a stellar presentation that makes sure all the curves that Ford imagined decades... ago are accented by great custom features like the chopped windshield, sport mirrors, and expertly deleted bumpers (so you can really see the crisp points at the front and rear.) Plus, all the right pieces are frenched, like the blue-dot headlights, blue-dot taillights, and the license plate. And the full pinstriping package with metallic inserts highlights how custom this whole car is while also showing off the quality fit of the panels. There's no superfluous chrome, which gives it a modern appearance that makes you focus on the limited areas of brightwork like the American Racing Hopster wheels and the air intake peeking out of the hood. Both of which also clue you in on this being a wicker power machine (more on that in a moment.) There's a removable black canvas hardtop that looks good in place, because black looks terrific against the red paint and the pinstriping coordinates, too. But for true distinction you'll love being open to the world. After all, the full tan leather interior looks timeless against the red of the exterior. They invested nearly $13k in the interior alone just to make sure this is built to be a premium driving experience. It starts with the modern bucket seats up front that offer all day comfort. In fact, this one has all the best luxuries, including ice-cold modern R134a air conditioning, power windows, power locks, power steering, tilt steering column, and an AM/FM/CD stereo w/aux input for your iPod. The cool custom steering wheel makes it look like this roadster is ready to fly, and the grip is even wrapped to match the rest of the interior tan. And ahead of that it might look like there are not any instruments in the dash, but when you twist the key, that long dark panel begins to glow with all your digital gauges. It's the kind of reveal that will impress your passenger even if it's not his/her first time in this ride. Just like the rest of the car, the engine bay was given plenty of thought to make sure it impresses. That means color-matched smooth inner panels that funnel all your attention to the polished monster in the middle. This is a 392 cubic-inch HEMI V8. While that would be enough for most of us, this big V8 has been upgraded further with dual Edelbrock four-barrel carburetors sitting on top of a custom hi-rise intake. And a wicked set of headers add even more power while feeding the 3-inch straight pipe dual exhaust with SuperTrapp mufflers. This even has all the right supporting components, like upgraded pulleys, MSD Pro Billet distributor, braided lines, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fan. Making sure this power gets to the ground is a A727 three-speed automatic transmission with performance torque converter and reverse valve body so you have complete control. This feeds a stout 9-inch rear and extra meaty Hoosier tires in the tubbed rear end. This whole package is a $30k investment alone. And to make sure that this can handle the full performance package, the car is built on a full custom chassis. It also includes tubular A-arms up front, a four-link rear, four-wheel disc brakes, and adjustable coilovers all around. And while this is extra-strong, it also has been done to an award-worthy standard that will have you putting mirrors under this roadster at car shows. Impressively built with a long list of A-list hardware, this is a first-class rod that's poised to take home some seriously big trophies. It's everything you want and available today for far less than it would cost to build this top-quality Ford from scratch. Call today!!!
