Ford Coupe 1934


Ford Coupe 1934

The 1934 Ford was one of the first from the blue oval company to get away from the overly square look which had dated cars back to the look of a horse-drawn carriage. The shapely, swept-back grille and flowing fenders quickly gained many fans and because all 1934 models came with a V8, the cars were also popular to tune up and thus came into the world of hot rodders. Like all cars of the era, the 1934 used a separate steel chassis and these still figure in many hot rodders' rebuilds today. This car in fact retains the beam front axle too, though with telescopic dampers. At the rear it's much more high-tech with the use of a Corvette independent suspension. This hot rod has a very period appearance with many accessories of the era attached to the body. It goes like a modern supercar, however, thanks to a tuned small-block Chevy which has been bored out to 358ci (5,866cc).
