(SOLD) This 1934 Ford Cabriolet came in to us as a aged, tired, and worn out hot rod with tons of bad “bandaged” body work and hashing together. The car was stripped down and sent off to the “dipper” for stripping of paint, primer, bondo, glue, and gunk. What we got back was a lot of bad original sheet metal and 1940′s backyard bodywork. So the old girl got a lot of new SAR sheetmetal such as, new floor, new firewall, new door skins, new Roadster (converted) 1/4 panels, new inner and outer below trunk lid panels, all 4 new fenders, runningboards, and a new trunk lid. New parts are not nearly as expensive as saving cobbled up rusty original sheet metal. A Pete & Jakes frame was the next step with a Ford Roush 327 aluminum block 350 HP crate motor, automatic transmission, Kugel’s IFS and IRS, and stainless steel exhaust. A David Brost designed interior was stitched up by Paul Reichlin all in leather trimed with woodgrained garnish and dash. A vintage heater was cherry picked out of Steve’s heater collection and a vintage turn signal switch out of his signal collection with both restored for the interior. Big and little painted wires with hubcaps give the car the right stance and a vintage look. Here is another SAR built car that has just come up for sale. It is offered for a fraction of the build price at $169,000.00. All reasonable offers entertained and presented. Email or call for details.
