Happy "eBaying"! Paul R. Wankle Pres. Classic Cars Ltd. Pleasanton CA 925-846-1451 DETAILS-THIS PARTICULAR 1934 FORD STREET ROD This stunning show winning street rod has been lovingly maintained by the current owners for 15 years under a "cost is no object" philosophy. During that time a total of over $50000.00 was invested to upgrade this car (not including the original cost of the vehicle and restoration costs). An extensive file of receipts totaling over $53K is provided including $20K for the award winning spectacular paint job. The Ford is fully sorted mechanically to provide a reliable street rod that you can proudly show cruise or use to travel long distance. Modern features such as automatic transmission power brakes power steering air conditioning cruise control tilt steering wheel and power windows (front & rear) make it a pleasure to drive. The car bears VIN# 18968953 and has current California vanity license plates "CANDY 34" transferable to a California buyer. The current odometer reading is 19216 miles probably the mileage since the initial build several years ago. However as a result of the type of vehicle and specialty build we must represent the miles as TMU (Total Miles Unknown). The car has a very pleasing stance when viewed from the side and the classic '34 Ford grill and large headlights make it absolutely striking from the front ¾ angle as well.

COSMETIC CONDITION The two tone paint is a highly professional job done about 10-12 years ago and since that time that car has been used virtually as a show car accumulating relatively few miles. The champagne paint / body remain in beautiful condition. The typically chipped and "road rash" that exists on the front of many street rods simply is not present on this 1934 Ford Sedan. The bulk of the candy apple red is very nice but a few small bubbling areas are developing near the beltline. These require close scrutiny to see and cannot be seen in the photographs. All chrome is excellent as is all glass. The interior is generally excellent. The passenger side seat does have a small flaw (the size of a pencil eraser tip) on the inner side bolster. The engine compartment is very nicely detailed and the undercarriage detail shows painted components to match the burgundy paint along with a stainless steel fuel tank battery with cut-off switch adjustable brake bias and a wonderful throaty sounding exhaust system. An inspection of the top side and undercarriage makes it apparent that it has not been exposed to inclement weather. The fine cosmetic condition is further verified by the previous recognition at various shows (including the prestigious Goodguys) for both the car and the paint job. DRIVING THE '34 Get ready for a lot of looks and plan on spending extra time talking about this one every time you stop! The '34 was built at considerable cost and it shows. The car starts immediately drives straight stops well and has excellent power. It is free from leaks and the investment in ongoing mechanical service / preventative maintenance has kept the car running with no breakdowns or "surprises." It is a reliable street road that the owner uses to go to shows hundreds of miles from his home in Northern California and says he would "drive anywhere." The 1934 Ford also offers a high level of comfort with air conditioning power steering and power disc brakes and even a tilt wheel cruise control AM/FM radio and other "niceties." Of course one advantage of the 2 Door Sedan (besides the attractive styling) is the ability to carry passengers or "gear" and still travel in comfort. Certainly the '34 is roomier and less cramped than the early '30's vintage cars making it a pleasure to drive.
