General description : You are looking at a gorgeous 1947 Ford Convertible with just the right touch of class and custom to make it stand out in any crowd.  It's fiberglass body is coated in a beautiful turquoise paint this street rod shines in the sunlight and looks awesome cruising down the road.  It has just the right touch of custom pin striping and graphics which emphasize the body lines and make it really stand out.  All of the original emblems shine like new and look great.  The original style bumpers are in place and the chrome is all in great condition.  A custom third brake light is frenched into the the rear deck lid and looks as though it was meant to be there.  The original style chrome door handles are in place but are not functionally.  The doors are entirely operated through a remote door popper. The 350 V8 powers this thing down the road and has a great sound.  It is covered in billet and polished parts which make it really shine.  From parts like the A/C compressor to the alternator it all shines.  The billet Edelbrock valve covers and air cleaner make the engine really pop and even has a custom matching style screw for holding it down.  The billet spark plug wire looms are mounted to the valve covers and really help to clean up the engine compartment. The interior is done in tan leather with some tweed accents on the arm rest.  The interior is completely custom and has a full length console stretching from the front to the back as well as custom inserted lights throughout.  The seats are extremely comfortable and make this car a breeze to drive.  Speaking of breeze the vintage AC system blows cold and will keep you comfortable no matter what conditions you are driving in.  If your looking for a little fresh air just roll down the power windows which have controls both in front and rear.  The digital gauges light up the dash and are framed with a great looking one piece billet bezel.  The American Racing steering wheel looks great and is custom wrapped with the same tan leather as the rest of the car.  It sits on top of a painted to match tile column which looks great.  The billet pedals add another touch of custom as well as all billet knobs and buttons.  The Lokar shifter powers the turbo 350 transmission and looks great. The trunk is finished out just as nice as the rest of the car with tan tweed with tan leather underneath the deck lid.  The custom removable storage panel is covered in tweed as well as a cactus and roadrunner scene (pictures below).  The battery is located in the trunk with remote easy to reach battery terminals.  The convertible top has all chrome hardware and has a custom made tan leather boot to keep this car looking cool whether the top is up or down. After all of that how could you not want this car? This is a great car worth well over $65,000.00!

About Ford
Ford, founded in 1902, has arguably changed the history of automotive world more than any other car manufacturer by introducing the first people's car Model T in 1908. They had produced more than 15 million cars by the end of the production in 1927, by which T had become obsolete.

Ford launched the first low priced V8 engine powered car in 1932. 1932 V8 was an instant hit with superior handling and performance to many far more expansive cars of the day. No wonder 32 V8 Ford has become such a favourite among hot rodders around the world with 32 Deuce coupe as their icon.

During the war Ford completely shut down civilian vehicle production to dedicate all its resources to the Allied war efforts (1942-45) They used to build B-24 bombers, aircraft engines, jeeps, M-4 tanks, military trucks and Bren-gun carriers and more than 30,000 super-charged Rolls Royce Merlin V-12 engines for Mosquito and Lancaster bombers as well as P-51 Mustang fighters. After the war Ford cars in the USA got bigger and flashier along with their competitors. In the 60's Ford was back in the forefront again when introducing their commercial hit Mustang in 1964. Mustang was so popular the competition had to follow Ford's example and the ponycar phenomenon took over the US. Over the years the ponies grew some muscles until the oil crisis kill finally killed them off.

In the sixties Ford rushed into international motor sports scene with a fury. After unsuccessful Ferrari takeover, when Enzo Ferrari had cut the deal off with Henry Ford II making the latter absolutely boil with fury, Ford turned to Lola in UK to produce a Ferrari beating long distance racer after. The collaboration between Ford and Lola created the mighty Ford GT40 that absolutely beat Ferrari in Le Mans 24 numerous times.

In Europe, Ford introduced some of the most epic race and rally cars of the 60's based on humble family sedans; Cortina GT, Lotus Cortina, Escort Twin Cam, and Escort 1600RS with the iconic Cosworth BDA engines.

Today classic Fords are extremely popular with enthusiasts and a great selection of classic Fords can be found for sale at www.ClassicDigest.com
