Take a moment to gather your wish list of your dream 1934 Ford Roadster. And now check out all the pics and info on this clean build that combines iconic lines with a leather interior, five-speed manual transmission, and a powerful ZZ4 crate motor with a triple-deuce setup. So as it turns out, we can make your dream a reality.
The reason why this one looks like a cut-above is because you’re looking at a high-quality Downs body on top of the king of all chassis makers, Pete & Jake’s. On a car this nice, they took their time applying the Champagne Gold everywhere and as you pour through the details, you’ll see we mean they put this gold EVEYWHERE. But for now, just start by appreciating the way the whole body shines amazingly in the sunlight thanks to a deep clearcoat, and that’s exactly what you want in a sunshine-friendly roadster. And for those few times when the weather is a bit gray, the new black soft top fits snugly in place. This one skips the fenders and shaves the door handles to get that smooth look that all the top hot rods have. Of course, it wouldn’t be this cool without all the chrome in the right places such as the grille, bumperettes, headlight pods, windshield frame, and peeking out of the front suspension. The boldness of the package is finished with a standout set of red Wheelsmith Artillery wheels.
Inside is more of all the best names in custom hot rods. It starts with a TEA’s custom leather bench seat. This coordinates nicely with the carpeting and custom door panels to make everyone want to peek at the interior. The driver gets a leather-wrapped Lecarra sports steering wheel mounted on an Ididit chrome tilt column. Beyond that you’ll find a centrally-mounted control for the Clarion AM/FM/CD player. But your eyes are really focused on the bright chrome panel that houses the full AutoMeter gauge package, including large speedo and tach. That last one works especially well with the Hurst shifter that has a red topper to match the hint of red on the exterior wheels. But as much as we like the finest names in performance combined in a great color-coordinated package, the best part of the interior is the ignition… because that’s where you awaken the beast within.
You can open either side of the hood, and both angles reveals some serious power stuffed within the golden engine bay. This is a fresh Chevrolet 350 cubic-inch ZZ4 performance crate motor installed less than 3,400 miles ago. This is already a powerful V8, but then it had even more go-fast goodies added, including GM performance aluminum heads, MSD ignition, and the iconic a triple-deuce setup of three Demon dual-barrel carburetors. The Sanderson headers add even more power as they contribute to the deep rumble of the dual exhaust. Best of all, you have complete control over this big power V8 and its thunderous soundtrack thanks to the close-ratio five-speed manual transmission. And don’t forget to check out the undercarriage photos. There you’re going to spot some of the best upgrades around like the polished Super Bell four-link front end, chrome Jaguar independent rear, and extra rigidity that comes from the quality of both the reinforced Downs body and Pete & Jake’s form-hugging chassis. Finish it all off with a four-wheel disc brake package, and you soon realize that this stellar classic can make some serious modern moves.
Traditional in all the ways that matter to you, upgraded with all the best performance, and fully finished in a way that makes people sit up and take notice. This is a fantastic ’34 roadster that can make your dreams a reality if you’re quick enough to grab it. Call today!!!
