Ford Roadster 347 Stroker V8 1934

General description : Description
Love the looks of a '34 roadster, but perhaps looking for something a little more weather-friendly? How about this butch-looking 1934 cabriolet, which has the same awesome open-air vibe as the roadster, but with the protection of a folding top, roll-up windows, and windshield wipers that actually work.
There's nothing subtle about this slick satin black rod, but that's entirely the point. Sure, the body is fiberglass, but the look is timeless, and everywhere you go, folks recognize the appeal of the 1934 Ford. From the pointed radiator shell and sweeping fenders to the raked-back windshield and smoothly tapered rear deck, there's something here that will appeal to everyone, and the fact that it's totally functional as a real car is something that most rods attempt, but not all achieve. Workmanship is quite good, and with fiberglass, it's easy to get great gaps and a solid feel, and with that satin black paint job, the shape simply speaks for itself. It features stock-style suicide doors with chrome handles, a custom grille insert in the pointed grille shell, and 1939 Ford taillights that have been smoothly integrated into the rear fenders. Red pinstripes add a classic old-school vibe with details on the hood louvers and in back, and they're matched by the red stripe in the stock-style chrome bumpers.
Red cloth upholstery ties in with the bodywork, and offers more comfort in an open car than sticky vinyl or sweaty leather might. The stitching has a traditional look with pleats on the seats and simple door panels with billet hardware, and twin buckets make it easy for everyone to get comfortable. Old-school gauges from Ford Motorsport highlight the smooth dash, which roughly approximates the shape of the original 1934 design. With a tilt column and wood-rimmed wheel, it has a great look that's a bit upscale, which is right where the cabriolet was positioned when it was new. Lokar supplied the shifter, and if you want entertainment, it's all controlled by you right foot. Weather protection is provided by a snug-fitting white top with a decent-sized rear window (no blind spots!) and the trunk is neatly finished and perfect for, say, the Hot Rod Power Tour.
But this rod is no poser. The engine is a 347ci stroker with all kinds of upgrades. A Cobra dress-up kit should look familiar to anyone who has ever driven a hi-po Ford before and it's entirely appropriate here. The black painted block looks great against the satin black bodywork and the overall look is serious and functional rather than over-done. Block-hugging headers dump into a custom-built dual exhaust system with glasspack-style mufflers, so this sucker really cackles. The suspension is a Mustang II setup in front with rack-and-pinion steering and power front disc brakes, while an 8.8-inch out back hangs on a Mustang trailing arm setup. There's also a 4-speed AOD automatic with overdrive transmission in the middle. It nails the perfect stance with painted steel wheels wearing skinny 205/75/14 front and fat 255/70/15 rear whitewall radials.
Go ahead and enjoy the open road, this '34 Ford has you covered; it's ready to rock or to be taken to the next level. 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
