ALL NEW BUILD!
INSPECTED AND TITLED IN FLORIDA AS A 1934 FORD
FLORIDA TITLE AND VALID FRAME MOUNT VIN TAG
If you are searching for a newly built street rod that was professionally constructed using the best components and parts, then search no further!
Created to be a reliable, easy to maintain, and head-turning machine, this street machine has been built from the frame up with all new components.
A STAGE III frame from Street Rods By Michael was chosen, and customized with a number of options including 4-wheel Wilwood disc brakes, fully chromed front suspension with tube axle, coil-over shocks, and more. All total, according to SRBM's website, the chassis would set you back about $11,500 in the raw.
Next, a BeBop's Glassworks 34 Ford Roadster body was ordered direct from the factory. For over 23 years, the Witt's have been creating some of the nicest reproduction glass bodies for Ford enthusiasts, will numerous customer builds gracing magazine covers, show stands, and Power Tours.
Some of the details that set them apart from the pack are
Oak Reinforced Interiors
Steel Reinforced 1" Boxed Tubing
Steel Plates in Floor Pan
Bear Claw Door Latches
Hinged Deck Lid
Reinforced Core Mat in Floor and Body
A small staff, and fantastic attention to detail, results in bodies that are some of the finest in the Industry. The body alone, unfinished and in the raw, ran just over $6,150 prior to delivery.
Once the body arrived, and all the test-fitting and mock-ups were complete, it was time to take everything to painter where it was meticulously gone over, smoothed, blocked, and prepped for the multiple coats of Fruehauf Orange that graces the frame, undercarriage, and body on the car.
No matter where the paint was applied, it was carefully finish-sanded and buffed to a brilliant sheen, even if you weren't supposed to see it! It is applied so cleanly and smoothly, you can almost smell the amount of money and time it took to achieve it!
A close inspection of the car reveals a total of three, yes THREE small blemishes on the entire painted surface of the car. 2 are less than 4mm in size and located on the underside of the car from debris, and the other is located about dead in the middle of the trunk, and is about 3mm in size, as shown in the close-up photo of it provided below. Other than that, the car is about as minty fresh as you could ask for, without even any signs of grime or dirt in the nooks and crannies!
The stripes on the car are custom cut vinyl graphics that were recently applied as a test before painting them on. You can leave them on, or take them off easily with a heat gun. If you KNOW you don't like them, we will remove them free of charge.
As you can imagine, the total on the paint wasn't cheap either, with typical custom finish paint jobs on Hot Rods running close to $8,000 given the attention to detail and finish out.
Fit and finish on the panels is extraordinary, and the doors all close and line-up even better than most steel cars you'll see!
A power trunk lid is actuated from inside the car, and a single polished billet arm raises and lowers it in seconds for easy access to the fuel tank, battery, and storage area.
The entire trunk is finished out to match the interior of the car, and all of it was so professionally and cleanly done, it will set a benchmark for all your friends to try and attain when they see your new car!
Seats, door panels, side panels, kick panels, center console, and rear surround are all covered in luxurious Camel Beige Ultra-Leather with a custom pleating that nods to the days when Street Rods ruled the strip.
Center console has a built in stainless cup holder with rubber bottom that can be removed for cleaning, as well as a custom matching boot to go over the Lokar chrome and stainless shifter with safety switch for NSRA approval.
Lokar also supplied the billet and rubber gas pedal and vintage style brake pedal, which go great with the new chrome tilt column with chrome mount.
Tilt, hazard, and signal stalks are all shiny and new, and SunPro mini-tach was discreetly tucked to the left on the column to keep the dash as clean as possible.
A GRANT 4-spoke rim with black leather grip finishes off the column, and the seat design and tilt capability makes the car roomy for anyone!
Carpet is new, is fully banded, and runs from the top of the firewall under the dash to the rear of the car. Even the matching custom-cut floor mats are banded!
Trunk is fully finished with cover for the fuel tank area, and another for the battery access area. Oh, and speaking of the battery, there is a master cut-off switch that is easy to access form the driver seat to kill power to the whole car at shows and events.
Fuel cell is an aluminum racing unit with 11 gallons of capacity, screw-top safety cap, and proper grounding. It will get you at least 150 miles between fill-ups.
Battery is a new full-size unit, and along with the aforementioned shut-off, has a safety mount pan connected directly to the frame, and extra HD cabling.
Under the dash, the horn, and switches for the fan and foot well lights are easy to access, but out sight.
Dash is fit with new Vintage looking white face gauges to monitor fuel level, water temp, oil pressure, and volts, with a giant speedometer in the middle.
Key switch on the left is adjacent to the headlamp pull switch, which has a reminder light, and turn signal lights just below it.
Seat belts are installed for safety, and work as they should.
Windshield is a cut down unit with billet sides and safety glass. It is firmly installed, and doesn't shake, shimmy, or rattle when driving.
Side mirrors are show polished and look great!
LED tail lights let people behind you SEE that you're stopping or turning, which is a plus since they are probably gawking at the car or trying to take a picture!
Headlights are new old-style units that light your path easily, while vintage style front signals work perfect too. They, along with the mounts, are beautifully chromed and show like new!
Billet Specialties was tapped for a set of Street Lite show polished wheels, lug nuts, and center caps size 15" in the front, and 17" out back. They are in new condition.
General Altimax HP tires were selected because the car made for long-haul usability, and the alignment indicator and tread wear safety indicator they build into each tire was a nice addition. Tires are still new for all intent and purpose, with just break-in and safety check mileage.
A crate 355ci GM crate engine was installed in the car, with a mildly upgraded cam to give the idle a bit more flavor. Vintage styled finned aluminum valve covers were installed with a complimenting air cleaner, and a polished carb replaced the dull gray stock unit.
Horsepower is estimated at about 330 with the mods that were done, but it was never dyno'd prior to installation.
Coated headers look amazing, and take the C02 from the motor to the twin Flowmaster-type cans and dumps it out just aft the cabin of the car.
It has a great rumble at idle, sort of like a new Corvette, with a really nice bark under acceleration that let's everyone know it's a hot rod. Since the exhaust goes out behind where your ears are, it stays pretty quiet and you and your passenger can carry on a conversation with ease.
Everything on, in, around, or attached to the motor is as fresh and new as the rest of the build, and it has been safety checked, driven, serviced, break-in checked, serviced, and driven again so it is ready to roll.
Speaking of rolling, the car is one of the BEST driving and handling Street Rods we have had. The combination of fine-tuning the chassis, adding the polished Uni-Steer system instead of a cheap Vega box, and making sure the alignment, caster, and camber were dialed in perfectly makes the car an absolute dream to drive!
In town, steering is effortless and light, and Uni-Steer system lets anyone in the family feel comfortable and competent behind the wheel.
On the highway, the modern radials and finely tuned suspension set-up let the car cruise at 70mph without any of that herky-jerkiness you get in most rods, and it can cruise all day without you having to "white-knuckle" it the entire time!
It rides out smoothly, and of course can be adjusted out back if you prefer a bit harder, or softer ride than the medium setting it is set-up for.
The 4-wheel Wilwood disc brakes pull the car down from speed without any odd wander, pulling, excess fade, or quirkiness.
Power is plentiful, and you better know where you are going if you whomp on the gas pedal, because high power and low weight make for a fast and easy launch!
The 350 Turbo transmission shifts smooth and simply, is equipped with a 3200 rpm stall converter, and has highway friendly gearing that still snaps off the line thanks to the light weight of the car.
A custom made driveshaft sends everything back to the smoothed Ford 9" rear, everything is as new as the rest of the build.
Brice Thomas custom made the aluminum radiator at C, G, & J, and combined with the thermostat and massive cooling fan, it keeps the car under 200 degrees.
The 34 Ford grill is beautiful to look at, and is in new condition like everything else.
As you can see in the photos, everything is clean, neat, nice, and NEW!!!!
It needs NOTHING.
