1934 Ford 5-Window CoupeAre 1934 Fords the ultimate '30s street rod? This appealing 1934 Ford 5-Window Coupe certainly puts on a convincing demonstration with a steel body, wicked stance, and a strong 350 V8 small block powerplant. And while it was built a few years ago, it shows only 4,031 easy-living, trouble-free cruising miles and is still extremely clean and ready to hit the road at a moment's notice.
You can spot a '34 Ford a quarter-mile away simply because every single line, curve, and louver is exactly right. The smart builders know not to mess too much with a good thing, so this handsome 5-Window coupe got a slight top chop that accentuates the rake, a set of glass fenders and running boards, but not much else. Of course, the body's sheetmetal was properly prepped and despite a few thousand miles of use accrued through the years, it still looks very good. Lots of traditional hotrod cues were employed as well, including original-style handles on the suicide doors, louvered hood sides, a louvered roll pan out back, and the rumble seat that could easily double as a trunk. The glossy, bright red paint has a timeless look that should look good for decades to come and they kept the colorful graphics limited to the car's profile, breaking up the red finish just enough to make the car really stand out from the crowd. Big round King Bee style headlights always look best on the '34s and the chromed grille insert and radiator shell is the perfect complement to the classic finish. We also like the simple hood ornament and trim, along with teardrop blue dot lenses on the taillights, and the full chrome bumpers fore and aft are perfect end caps for this coupe.
The interior is neatly but not over-wrought like so many recent rods. Supple tan cloth upholstery covers the bench seat that anchors the cabin, and the door panels are dressed in the same pleated material, punctuated by the bright chrome handles for the windows and doors. The suicide-style doors make climbing in graceful and easy, especially with a tilt steering column and upward-facing wood-rimmed steering wheel to make some extra room. A beautifully finished bright dashboard matches the exterior finish and holds retro-looking white-faced VDO gauges, all of which are neatly organized ahead of the driver. An auxiliary tachometer was installed underneath the dash to mind the revs, and it's joined by the aftermarket R134a A/C system, although it is due for service. A Clarion AM/FM/Cassette head unit, auxiliary switches, and a storage cubby were stashed in the header above the windshield, and it matches both the headliner and plush carpets below, giving the coupe a very all-together feel inside. With this being a 5-Window coupe there's a little bit of room behind the bench seat for storage, and it opens up into the rumble seat area that's been upholstered in matching tan vinyl.
This streetrod is always ready to go, and go there fast, thanks to a strong 350 cubic inch V8 under the hood. Topped by an Edelbrock aluminum intake and 4-barrel carburetor, it's a torque-happy small block that makes this coupe feel legitimately quick on the street. It's packed pretty tightly into the engine bay, but plenty of chrome and painted details make it look super-sanitary and with just 4,031 miles on the build, it's still quite fresh. Accessories are either chromed or polished to look their best and block-hugging ceramic-coated headers are bolted to a great-sounding dual exhaust system below. The TH350 3-speed automatic transmission is encased with a Hurst pan and spins a capable 10-bolt rear end that makes it punchy but comfortable on the highway. The front suspension is Mustang II style with coil springs, shocks, and disc brakes, while out back ladder bars with a set of adjustable coil-overs hooks it up. And it's really quite nice underneath, with pans painted red, a reinforced frame in satin black, and signs of maintenance and polish components throughout. The raked stance comes from the rolling stock as much as the suspension, with staggered radials on Weld wheels that set the aggressive stance perfectly.
A properly built car when it was first finished, this remains a very high-quality rod with a very interesting hardware list and an awesome look. Call today!
