Featuring a rare Phaeton body, this award-winning Ford combines the core strengths of originality with authentic dynamics and incredible vintage form. Are you one of those discerning gearheads who wants the unmatched driving experience of a real antique car? This first class Ford is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for! This suave roadster’s smooth and solid profile began life as a run-of-the-mill Model 48 that was maintained, driven and paraded for most of its existence. In the early 1980s, the car officially met its second owner, who promptly disassembled it in preparation for a ground-up restoration. In 1985 that owner, at the request of his wife, sold the stalled project to its third and present owner. And, shipped as boxes of parts to Dallas, Texas-based Kip Motor Company, the car finally received the detailed rebuild it so deserved. In keeping with tradition, this stellar drop-top is powered by a familiar, 221 cubic inch flathead that, thanks to relatively tame 6.2 to 1 compression, makes roughly 85 horsepower. Fully rebuilt in 2009, and driven roughly 500 miles since, the antique mill probably looks much better today than when it growled off the assembly line. Behind the engine a correct 3-speed transmission, also rebuilt in 2009, transfers power to a fresh overdrive unit, which spins an authentic, banjo-style rear end. Mechanical drum brakes do an excellent job of bringing 2,641 pounds of steel to a casual pause. And everything rides on 16-inch, color-keyed wheels that spin fresh 6.00-16 Firestone Deluxe Champion whitewalls around stainless trim rings and polished, “V8” branded hubcaps.
