This 1938 Ford Sedan has an incognito kind of cool. The pastel blue color can feel like a cool pre-war classic... but then you see all the details. The smooth exterior, custom interior, upgraded suspension, and upgraded V8 power are all part of a very cool street machine build.
The light blue is a classic shade with a modern shine. That seems to set the tone right for this car. It's an all-steel body, and so the color gives this vintage attitude respect, and the luster shows off all those curves that are generations in the making. One curve that is not original is the roofline. There are a few inches chopped out of it to give the car a sleeker profile. In fact, there's a lot of work in smoother lines. That's why there are deleted door handles, fuel-mounted fuel filler, a frenched license plate, and frenched bullet-style taillights. Even with these upgrades, it still keeps the right classic details, too. The teardrop headlights, pointed grille with V8 logo, chrome bumpers, and two-piece windshield all make sure they do this steel-body Ford proud.
When you pop the remote door openers, you'll find a custom interior that combines touches of the exterior light blue exterior paint with tasteful tan tweed upholstery. The front buckets are far more modern than anything out of the '30s, so they have nice bolstering for all-day comfort. The rear seats are even done with bucket-style comfort. The full tweed package is everywhere from the carpeting to the headliner, and it makes for both a uniform and clean look that makes this custom quite comfortable. Plus, you've got great upgrades, like an AM/FM/CD stereo w/aux input, proper vents, and power windows. The classic banjo-style steering wheel is on a tilt column, and so it gives you a clear view to the crisp Stewart Warner gauges.
The Ford V8 logo on the front was not lying. But rather than a flathead under the hood, this one goes for a more modern legend. It's a hardy 302 cubic-inch V8, and it was certainly done to be on display. The darker blue block looks great against the clean light blue inner walls, and there's plenty of brightness, including the Ford Motorsports valve covers. You'll also like the added power this one brings with an Edelbrock AVS2 four-barrel, Edelbrock intake, and Flamethrower ignition coil. You can also see that the fundamentals are fresh, including the distributor, plug wires, belt, and hoses. It's a strong motor that's at the heart of a great driving package. The suspension was upgraded with tubular control arms and coilovers up front, and there's a sway bar and air shocks in the rear. Plus, the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes w/front discs upfront, and modern tires all make this a great anytime cruiser.
This is the sleek and upgraded Ford that also knows how to respect its history. It makes for a complete and thoughtful build that you know will be terrific to take home. Call today!!!
