 Vehicle Description
One of the greatest things to come out of the explosion in vintage rodding is the rebirth of the flathead Ford V8. This 1939 Ford is a frame-off build to exceptionally high standards using all kinds of modern technology to make it amazing, but for power, the owner chose a traditional flatty, complete with period speed equipment. How can you not think thats cool?

Finished in 2007 and driven just 3000 miles since, this stunning silver fastback very neatly straddles the traditional versus modern line. The bright silver paint is definitely not a 1939 hue, but it looks simply fantastic on the vintage Fords curves. The work was done to exacting standards, as demonstrated by the binders full of receipts and other documentation, and the results speak for themselves. Note the tight gaps, the smooth finish, and the impossibly bright shine-none of that comes cheap. All the original trim is still there, polished and shined to show standards, but if you want the door open, just grab the handle instead of fumbling for a key fob. Even the bumpers remain, the license plate stands proudly above the trunk lid, and those teardrop taillights are 1939 Ford items with accessory blue dots. A few little tricks give it a custom look, including flipped bumper guards, tinted glass, and indicator lights cleverly hidden inside the headlights.

The interior is an equally artful blend of yesterday and today that will simply knock your socks off. The seats are upholstered in a period style using fabric and leather to create a very inviting cockpit. A leather-wrapped banjo steering wheel is mounted on the stock steering column and frames the original instruments in the body-colored dash. Auxiliary gauges for voltage, oil pressure, and coolant temperature hang below to keep an eye on the warmed-over flathead, but other items such as the clock in the glove box lid and the rubber mat on the floor are pure 1939 production line. The spacious back seat is finished the same way as the front and offers a full carpet set, as was traditional back then, and all the garnish moldings blend in seamlessly. The trunk is simple, nothing flashy, which keeps to the theme of the car.

Thats a genuine 1953 Mercury flathead V8 under the hood and thanks to decades of development, it runs beautifully. Aluminum Offenhauser heads and a matching intake with twin Holley 94s, and period headers give it a wonderful flathead sound and very respectable performance. Internally, its been bored .125 over, stuffed with Ross pistons and a Schneider camshaft. Yeah, its fast. Its also dressed for show with lots of polished aluminum, the bright red paint contrasts brilliantly with the silver bodywork. Its been upgraded to 12 volts and disc brakes for safety, but the transmission is still a stock Ford 3-speed manual and there are still 3.73 gears in the original banjo-style rear end. The suspension still sits on buggy springs, albeit lowered for the perfect stance, and red steelies with 195/60/15 front and 235/70/15 rear blackwall radials are the perfect finishing touch.

Beautifully built and fully sorted, this is the kind of category-defying rod youve always wanted to own. With two binders full of build information, you can buy with confidence and drive it anywhere. Call today!
