1938 Ford RoadsterYes you are seeing this correctly, an iconic full-steel custom for under $50k. It includes a beautiful curvy body that has all the right upgrades, like a show-ready big-block, overdrive transmission, loaded custom A/C interior, and an overall slick look. So yes, this 1938 Ford Roadster is everything you'd do if you had the time, money, and patience to create the best car for yourself. But instead this one is available today for far less than it would cost to build it.
Everyone sees you coming in this bold creation. The modern Viper Red has a nice modern clearcoat luster the loves to show off the curves of the body. In fact, nothing gets in the way of this pure design thanks to expertly deleted trim (including the door handles), the color-matched grille, and nice details like flush-fitting fuel door. There are even more of the right touches to impress in places like the Hagan Snake eye headlights, power door poppers, and frenched teardrop taillights. And we especially like the forward leaning stance that makes you take note of this wide Hoosier tires in the rear.
The tan roof has a timeless style against the red, and if you like the way this looks, then you'll love taking it down to reveal the custom interior. That's because it's a full custom setup that masterfully intertwines these two colors. Nicely bolstered buckets are finished in a supple leather and feature modern all-day comfort. Yours even power adjusts to the ideal driving position. The door panels are a custom setup that coordinate with the seats and offer a two-tone to really tie the whole uniform package together. As with any good custom build, there are plenty of cool touches like the custom dash w/center console, and the trunk even power operates. You also have modern conveniences, including power windows, provisions for an upgraded stereo, and cold-blowing air conditioning. And the custom steering wheel mounted on the tilt column reminds you the driver is always king in a street machine like this.
The way the hood tilts forward is guaranteed to draw a crowd, and when they get closer, it reveals that the whole engine bay was done for showmanship. Ultra-smooth inner fenders and firewall funnel all your attention to the shining heart in the middle. They invested nicely in hiding the wires and plenty of bright components, so we wouldn't be surprised if you won awards for the engine bay all by itself. And there's plenty of substance within this style. It's a 454 cubic-inch big block that inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor. Plus, the you've got shorty headers feeding some very straight pipes on the glasspack-style dual exhaust to deliver a sweet rumble. There are the right supporting components, like an aluminum radiator, trans cooler, and new gas tank. And this build continues to show off its thoughtfulness in the undercarriage photos. You'll spot nice upgrades like the strong R&S Classic frame and an upgraded Mustang II-style front end with tubular A-arms. Add in power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission w/highway-friendly overdrive, and this is a classic you can enjoy near or far.
