This incredible 1947 Ford Custom roadster is the kind of full custom build that most of us only dream of owning. A streamlined exterior, a full custom leather interior, and plenty of V8 power makes this an all-eyes-on-me street rod.
This paint loves to attract immediate attention. The orange/copper color has a deep clearcoat luster that has a slippery look. This is important, because the whole car was custom built to be a very sleek machine. You see it in the super-straight body that has a modern appearance where its only trim is a long strip running the profile. And we love the expertly deleted bumpers that allow you to really see the custom color-matched grille and awesomely rounded rear. And the details were sweated, too. It has a modern appearance with features like the flush-mounted headlights, chopped windshield, shaved door handles, sport mirrors, and frenched taillights. And those bright Coys 17-inch alloys are true standouts to compete this unique package. So this has the look of a slick, straight, and total custom where you know there was a ton invested to make sure it's a one-of-a-kind machine.
Ron Mangus is a legend in hot rod custom interiors, you know that you're going to love showcasing this award-worthy supple leather presentation. Everyone has individual bucket seats. And there are more great details, like the suicide doors and cup holders expertly integrated. Just like the exterior, this one has been built to be sleek and fully coordinated. That's why the exterior color returns to highlight custom pieces like the smooth door tops and clean dash with a hint of the exterior trim. And it's easy to get comfortable in the driver's seat with a Budnik steering wheel mounted on a tilt column, and beyond that, you have a crisp set of Dolphin gauges.
The engine bay is the only part of this car that's finished in anything dark, but that's for a very good reason. The black inner walls make the polished components of the V8 really pop. And again, this is a detail-oriented presentation with the exterior orange in the ridges of the valve covers. More than just look great, this is a hardy 350 cubic-inch V8 that has been upgraded with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, aluminum intake, and Hooker shorty headers feeding the dual exhaust. Even the undercarriage photos prove this is a clean and low-mileage build. And while you're checking those out, you'll also spot upgrades like the QA1 adjustable coilovers, updated independent front end, and triangulated four-link rear with tubular arms and a sway bar. Power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and three-speed automatic transmission are all there to make sure it's easy to show off this custom everywhere.
Complete with maintenance records, this is the detail-oriented custom that will keep people talking. So if you love attention and awards, don't miss this roadster. Call today!!!
