This 1934 Ford Coupe was built in the mid-1990s to be a show car. It boasts an original steel body and fenders, which have been mounted on a chassis that was built by Total Coast Involved Engineering, of Ontario, California, and it features a roll-out front windshield, as well as a roll-down rear window and a smoker’s window on the driver’s-side door. The car is finished in black with red pinstriping, and it sits on reproduction Halibrand-style wheels that have been wrapped in modern Goodyear tires. The car’s underbody is just as attractive as its exterior and interior, and the driveshaft and rear axle have been highly polished to showcase the build’s exquisite craftsmanship and attention to detail.

The engine is a Chevrolet 350-cubic inch V-8 that has been fitted with Edelbrock Performer cylinder heads, as well as an Edelbrock intake and carburetor, and it is cooled by a modern Walker radiator. The engine is mated to a four-speed TH350 automatic transmission that puts the engine’s power to a solid nine-inch Ford rear axle. The car is fitted with power-assisted disc brakes and a tubular front axle and suspension up front, while 11-inch drum brakes are mounted at the rear.

The car’s interior is finished in a highly attractive brown leather, which carries through to the trunk. Keen eyes will be quick to notice the tilt steering column, as well as the tastefully installes air conditioning, which is a must-have for a classic car that was intended to be used in the summer months around Dallas-Fort Worth. The dashboard is black with red pinstriping, and the instrument panel is of machine-turned aluminum and features period-correct Stewart Warner gauges.

What makes this 1934 Ford Custom stand out from the rest is the incredible attention to detail evident throughout, and it garners attention anywhere it is shown. It showcases incredible craftsmanship both inside and out.
