Lot #402.1 - This all-steel 1940 Ford 2 door sedan is a great combination 1950's styling and modern Hot Rod components. The bright yellow body is accented by original style trim and bumpers. The exceptional black interior features leather seats, new 40 style steering wheel, new gauges and powdercoated garnishings. The lowered stance and wide white's mounted on black steel wheels and spider centers complete the nostalgic look. To keep with the '50's retro-style, the 350 Chevy has been modified to resemble an Olds Rocket motor. The engine is backed by a 700R overdrive transmission. The front suspension is Mustang II style with tubular A-frame. A Corvette independent rear end suspension was used to provide the best ride possible. 4-wheel power disc brakes, air conditioning, power windows and power steering are just a few more modern amenities tucked away nicely in this fantastic Street Rod. If you're looking for the traditional style Street Rod, but don't want to give up the reliability and driveability of the modern Hot Rod, then this car is for you. The front and rear independent suspension and the overdrive transmission make this car a pleasure to drive on long hauls. The cool 50's styling also makes it a real head turner at any car show or local cruise-in.
