Description
Lot #468 - This 1948 Ford F1's foundation is a boxed, stepped and reinforced Ford frame with Mustang II independent front clip that was grafted to the frame rails, then upper and lower control arms, 2" dropped spindles, a front sway bar and Ford rack & pinion steering was added. A Zoops GM-style power steering and a pair of Air Ride Shockwave pneumatic bags completed the front suspension. A narrowed Ford 9" was stuffed with a Moser 3.50 ring & pinion and Moser Tru Trac 28-splined billet axles. The Ford housing was suspended by a heavy-duty 4-link system with a Panhard bar and Air Ride Shockwave airbags. The braking was handled by a set of Wilwood disc brakes with polished 4-piston calipers and 13" drilled and ball-milled rotors. The rolling stock consists of Schott Performance camber 18"x8" front polished aluminum wheels and 20"x15" wheels in the rear. The Schott wheels were encased with Mickey Thompson Sportsman tires. A healthy 406cid Ford V8 producing 618 ft/lbs of torque at 3,700 rpm and 542hp at 5,000 rpm. The block was bored 4.390" stroked to 3.980" and given 9.0:1 compression by Bob Meyers at Performance Automotive Machine & Engines in Greenville, TN. A BDS intake was capped with a BDS 8-71 blower for the ultimate in go-fast power. A pair of Quick Fuel Technologies SS Series 650 cfm carburetors deliver the precise air/fuel mixture into the blower. The BDS aluminum bug catcher mounted atop the carbs draws in fresh air. The burnt exhaust exits the cylinder head exhaust ports into a set of Sandersen ceramic-coated headers then flow into a pair of Flowmaster 40 series mufflers. A Steve Long aluminum radiator was installed with a 17" electric fan to assist in cooling. Built Ford C6 transmission with a 2,400 rpm stall. This '48 underwent some 46 body modifications to achieve its aggressive identity.
