1938 Dodge D8
A 1938 Dodge D8 was a car that dared to be different. With better integrated headlights than a Chevy and a more thoughtful sedan body design than a Ford, it has a distinctive appearance that's rare today. Add in the full hot rod custom treatment, and you've got the recipe for an attention-getter at a terrific price. This D8 sedan is distinctive from the moment you catch a glimpse of the front end. After all, the modern magenta is the kind of color that commands attention. But more than just a cool presentation, take some time to appreciate the level of professionalism in the paint. There's shine of the metallic elements and the clearcoat combine to make sure that the light really accents all of the Dodge's unique curves. So of course, you can tell they took the time to get the body right. This has had a few inches chopped out of the roof to give it a great hot rod stance. And the way the suicide doors still shut with confidence tells you all the custom work was first-rate. In fact, this whole presentation is done well. It mixes classic elements like the winged badges and blue-dot taillights with street machine upgrades like the expertly deleted rear bumper and solid polished wheels. Open any the of the four doors to see the custom interior. Multiple tones of gray give this a nice coordinating feeling while you also get to enjoy the comfort of tweed seats and ultraleather door panels. There's plenty of room for family and friends, and there's even an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth connection to keep them entertained. But the best features are reserved just for you. The driver's bucket seat power adjusts to the ideal driving position. And so you get to easily grip the B&M shifter and the Grant GT steering wheel mounted on a tilt column. Plus, the dash might be painted in the modern magenta to match the exterior, but the full VDO gauge package has a great vintage look. Lift either side of the butterfly hood to see another great upgrade. Chevy's 350 cubic-inch V8 is a great motor to have because there are plenty of parts available to customize it. That's why it not only looks bold from polished components, but it's also backed up by performance upgrades such as an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and headers. Plus, new cams and lifters were installed in 2014. And while you'll enjoy the power from the V8 and rumble of the side exhaust, this one is a delight to drive, too. With a three-speed automatic transmission, Mustang II-style independent front suspension, power steering, and power front disc brakes, this Dodge knows how to cruise in comfort. There's even an aluminum radiator w/electric fan to keep this one running cool even if you're in traffic. Here's the ideal custom car to drive all day Saturday, and then be the distinct entry for the car show on Sunday. So call today before someone else snaps up you perfect weekend machine!
