4610 Pet Lane
This 1937 Ford Humpback Custom has a terrific street machine look and a plenty of V8 power to back it up, but what you'll really love is how this is an all-around driver, too. After all, features like an overdrive transmission, four-wheel disc brakes, and a custom/comfy A/C interior means this one is more than just about showing off its good looks.
The glossy Hot Red paint lives up to its name. This has been laid down with a professional hand, and so it does a terrific job highlighting all the curves in the body. It looks so nice that this one gets to forego brightwork in some traditional places, like the grille. Plus, the extra red makes for a terrific canvas for them to lay down the painted silver metallic flames with blue edging. It's a blaze that starts at the teardrop headlights, burns down the profile, and ends on the trunk with a special take on Ford's V8 graphic. So yes, be prepared for people to do a lot of talking about your custom exterior. There are more aggressive street machine pieces, like the wide exhaust tips, sport mirrors, and the forward leaning stance of Boyd Coddington alloys staggered at 17/20 inches front/rear. But as much as you love the custom details, don't forget to check out the fundamentals. The way the panels line up nicely, the clean glass, and the pliable weatherstripping are all signs of thoughtful quality.
Where the exterior details area all about a wild custom look, the investments inside seem to be more about custom comfort. This has a tasteful two tones of tan that are intertwined on the seats, carpeting, and door panels. We especially like the button-top presentation of the ultra-leather seating, and the large rear space is even large enough to take adult friends along for the ride. In fact, there are plenty of great features to keep them all comfortable, like power windows, satellite radio (subscription required), and cold blowing R-134A air-conditioning. You'll love slipping behind the upgraded banjo-style steering wheel. This has driver-oriented features, like a Lokar shifter, tilt steering column, and upgraded gauge package including tach.
The engine bay has a nice presentation with the smooth red hot firewall as a backdrop for plenty of polished components like the valve covers, air topper, and alternator. Plus, you'll also spot nice supporting components, like the temp-controlled electric fans. And what you'll really like is this is running a 400 cubic-inch V8. Not only do you get big block displacement in a small-block size, but also this one has been further upgraded with performance pieces like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and coated headers. You can hear the power of this motor every time you fire it up and hear the dual exhaust's fierce rumble. But this one is built for far more than brute force. It's ready for highway cruising thanks to the a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. And power steering, grippy ZR-rated tires, upgraded front suspension, and four-wheel power disc brakes are all great anytime driving features.
You're looking at a striking total package of an all-steel custom. So if you love a powerful classic that's also ready for the Power Tour, call today!!!
