Deluxe 1947

Title Status --
Exterior Color Black Cherry
Interior Color Dark Red


This 1947 Ford Deluxe coupe is a custom that has a ton of attitude all in the first impression. And that all gets backed up with a serious stroker motor said to produce over 500 horsepower! But when you see this also has features like an overdrive transmission and an A/C interior, you start to recognize that this wild child is a well-rounded awesome classic.

This one-of-a-kind coupe is the product of a master technician's 14-year labor of love for a full custom build. The impressiveness starts with the paint. The black cherry color looks like midnight until the sunlight hits it, and then it unleashes deeper tones of red and a hint of metallic for a flowing lava kind of style. It really flows the smooth sheet metal of this classic Ford. And the dark red loves to be a part of the hellfire that's shown on the sides with the pinstripe flames and custom graphics. In fact, those skull decals that are coming through on the doors are just a preview of the full custom airbrushed artwork on the trunk. And it's not just the paintwork that makes this one mean. They deleted the bumpers and badging for a sleeker style. It puts the big chrome front end out there like the head of a freight train. And the 17-inch Foose chrome wheels radiate to make sure you notice their style and mean stance. Overall, this whole build has a lot of big flair, but take a moment to see all the little things, too. Clear headlights, tinted windows, the frenched license plate, and blue-dot taillights are all there to prove that this bold package also is detail-oriented.

The interior has a cool style where it looks like you mixed its black and red to get the exterior color. And not only does it coordinate with the outside, but it's a very uniform style inside, too. The seats, carpeting, door panels, and headliner are all a nice mix of red and black. And since there's only 3,300 miles on the whole build, it has a fresh and clean style. While this has an evil look on the outside and a monster under the hood, the interior was made to be quite accommodating. You have cold-blowing air conditioning, a cup holder center console, and a discreetly hidden AM/FM stereo with upgraded satellite radio auxiliary input, and a subwoofer speaker system. And features like the banjo-style sports steering wheel and large dash-mounted tach tell you that you're going to like what's under the hood.

The engine bay is a beacon of big and bright power. The mean-looking motor has a fantastic presence with the polished air grabber, radiator cover, piping, brackets, and many more chrome accessories. At the heart is a 383 cubic-inch stroker V8. The consignor states this is a balanced and blueprinted motor that was enhanced and fortified with a Cola crank, Oliver Racing Super-Lite rods, Crower lifters, and Brodix aluminum heads. The fresh air intake feeds a Holley four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake. Wrapped headers add power while feeding the dual exhaust, and there's even a set of cutouts for those who really want to bring the thunder. The full package is said to deliver 502 horsepower 480 ft-lbs of torque at the crank! While that's a street-eating kind of setup, the full build was made to also be a solid overall driver. That's why the motor is supported by the right pieces, like a March serpentine belt system, MSD ignition, and an aluminum radiator with dual electric fans. The transmission is a four-speed automatic, which is great for having better ratios for the powerband as well as overdrive comfort. Plus, you have power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, an Auburn limited-slip rear end, and the grip of modern sport tires for overall confident driving.

The sale comes complete with restoration photos and a car cover. This is the kind of all-around awesome build that you've always wanted. So don't let something so complete and distinct slip away. Call today!!!
