Description

Lot #464 - Finished in Jet Black with a matching black German cloth convertible top and a one-off tan leather interior. This Ford is the result of five years and over $200,000 of meticulous craftsmanship by Noone Customs and Carolina Rod Shop. Every part of the all-steel body was gone over, the hood has been smoothed and lowered, the front windshield was cut down and a folding convertible top was fabricated. The gas filler has been shaved and relocated behind the rear tail lights, even the frame was powder coated before the laser-straight body was installed. The one-off diamond stitched leather interior has been fitted with power seats, Lokar shifter, tilt steering column, Billet Specialties steering wheel, Kenwood stereo and Haneline gauges. The engine is a ZZ383 stroker motor with Inglese stacker fuel injection, Vintage Air, Wilwood brakes and Billet Specialties wheels.
