With their tidy proportions and classic form, ’40s Fords are certainly a standard in the street rod world. And the baseline for notable ’40s builds is a solid, all-steel body, proven V8 power and comparatively upscale trim. The question then becomes: what happens when someone meets that baseline and throws in a couple of great ideas for good measure? You get a fully sorted custom like this vividly awesome drop-top! Based on its clean appearance, this Ford is the beneficiary of a detailed, ground-up restoration that’s been exceptionally well maintained. That restoration likely began with the car’s all-steel body being carefully stripped and professionally prepped. Once that solid profile was thoroughly worked, a fresh Haartz top was seated between a nosed hood, partially shaved doors and a decked trunk. Polished bumpers, correct lighting and a red-tinged DeLuxe grille joined polished wipers, tinted glass and a trio of mirrors to provide the simple yet custom perfection. Everything not polished was bathed in brilliant base, sealed in glossy clear and detailed with traditional trim spears. And today, this razor-sharp custom rolls as a real head turner! Power is supplied by 5.7 liters of GM LT4 that, according to the factory, twists 330 horsepower into a stout 340 lb./ft. of torque. Bottom-side, a smooth 700R4 4-speed spins comfortably in front of a Ford 9-inch axle. That ultra-reliable driveline rides modern chassis components, which stuff tough QA-1 coil-overs behind a polished sway bar and polished, tubular control arms. At the front of that suspension, power rack-and-pinion steering makes the most of turns. Power-assisted disc brakes are a welcome addition and big performance upgrade. And everything rolls on polished Foose wheels, which spin 215/45R18 Yokohama AVID ENVigors in front of 255/40R20 Yokohama PARADA Spec-Xs.
