Ford Model T Boyd Coddington 283 V8 1927

General description : Description
Not only is this 1927 Ford Model T an awesome custom total construction, but also it was built by hot rod royalty. Yes, this is Boyd Coddington's actual creation, and we have the DVDs from his TV show to prove it! So dig into all the details of this dual-quad old-school build done by a true master.
If you know Boyd's show, then you should already know this coupe. The segment was called the Beater Build Off, but really, it was about Boyd wanting to go back to his roots. He wanted to build the kind of old-school street machine that used more craftsmanship than chrome for showing off. You see it in the custom long front end with three-piece hood. The roof was chopped to give it a cool performance rake, and the rear window was given a custom angled treatment to match. He wanted classic details, so you have exposed hinges and a windshield overhang. But this is also unmistakably a smooth design from Coddington. You see it in the way the custom Chevy frame aligns with the body; the fender cuts are so smooth they look like there was nothing ever there; and the Pontiac taillights have been delicately frenched into the rear. Red oxide paint may have been a primer back in the day, but they put it down with a careful hand to make it look like a modern matte burgundy. And the orange panted pinstripes on top add a well-coordinated style. In fact, even the black roof matches the front drop axle, grille, and steele wheels. And this careful creation was no accident. Boyd didn't build this to push it out the door to a customer. He made this in California and drove it to the NSRA Street Rod Nationals in Kentucky.
The black accents of the exterior are also a nice preview of the interior. It again proves the thoughtfulness of a true Coddington custom build. Gabe Lopez did the upholstery that needed to be basic, comfortable, and show-ready. The full interior keeps the theme of classily simple with a dual spoke '40 Ford steering wheel, a tall Lokar floor shifter with 8-ball topper, and a dash dominated by crisp Stewart Warner gauges.
A custom creation like this is going to have some awesome power that looks awesome, too. We dare you to find another component to polish in this award-worthy motor. It's a classic-style Chevrolet 283 cubic-inch V8. They made sure to give it vintage power upgrades with it bored .30 over, balanced & blueprinted, and added two Edelbrock four-barrel carburetors on top. They even tested the motor on the dyno before dropping it into the hot rod, and it was producing a healthy 370 horsepower! Keeping with the old-school theme, it has features like a rebuilt Powerglide automatic transmission and a rumbling glasspack-style dual exhaust. The suspension has a 5-inch drop axle up front with Posies springs and Pete & Jake's springs. And the rear is Pete & Jake's ladder bars. And because there's less than 5,000 miles on the whole build, you can still proudly stick a mirror underneath to show off the undercarriage.
This is such a special build, that you'll be happy it comes with some terrific materials. This includes the concept drawing, show DVDs documenting the build, and two magazine articles. If you miss Boyd as much as we do, you know this is once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Call today!!!

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
