Description

1939 Ford DeLuxe Restomod (LHD) For Sale In London

Offered here is the first car released from a private Californian collection- imported into the UK in February 2015 and a real 'wolf in sheep's clothing'. The vehicle in question has been subject to a no-expense-spared, frame-up build featuring a modified, professionally built, 359 cubic inch Chevrolet engine fuelled by a Carter 600cfm carburettor with Brodix aluminium cylinder heads, roller rockers and a hydraulic performance camshaft. The distributor is an electronic Igniter ignition and cooling is handled by a Walker radiator with the power conservatively estimated at between 350 and 400bhp!

The gearbox is a 350 automatic with a Lokar shifter, the front TCI tube suspension is independent with coilover shocks and heavy duty springs and the steering is rack and pinion. Braking at the front is taken care of by Mustang disc brakes and callipers and the rear axle is a heavy duty 9" Ford unit with drum brakes, all sitting on a powder-coated chassis. The interior of this Coupé features new headlining, carpets, seats, door trims and seat belts and the beautifully original woodgrain-look dash gives a fantastically authentic feel. A complete Ron Francis wiring loom is also installed along with new VDU gauges to complement the banjo steering wheel and the front screen winds out just as it should.

The bodywork is in excellent condition and paint is presented in Cordoba Tan with chrome wheels housed by new Coker Classic whitewall tyres; 215/75/R15s on the back and 195/75/R15s on the front. The previous American owner was a member of the Goodguys Car Club- one of the most highly regarded in the US and was a regular participant in this car. It is great fun to drive and as well as providing comfort; it sounds wonderful and is fantastically quick.
