1947 Ford Super Deluxe
One of the coolest things about classic cars is all of the variety you can choose from. From different makes to completely different body styles within that make. There is no doubt that the late 40's Fords have their following but you rarely see these cars out! That is probably because the horizontal grill body style was only present for 3 years before cars completely changed with the onset of the shoe box Ford. The very nicely built 47 you see here is all steel and is extremely fun to drive. The car has been very well cared for since built and has spent most of its life in the southern states. It underwent a nice restoration to begin with and was recently Road Certified by Goodyear where it underwent a full front to back inspection after which any issues were addressed, replaced, and repaired. Look around at some classic classifieds and you will see that it is very difficult to get in a built up Street Rod like this for this low price. The wide front fenders and swooping body lines give the car a really great look that is very nostalgic. The paint on it is fresh and was done in a bright solid red that looks great next to the chrome and stainless. From the side pieces to the window trim, it is all there. It has a bent style front windshield that looks great as does all of the glass. The exterior lights all work properly and custom old school blue dot tail lights are mounted in the rear. Pulling in a bit more nostalgia is the original style Beige steel wheels with dog dish hubcaps and beauty rings. The look great on the car and are wrapped with brand new Radial tires.
When it comes to the drive train you will find a lot of it was newly rebuilt. The 350 V8 motor came out of a 1978 Chevrolet P/U and fits under the hood nicely. These motors are very reliable and being newly rebuilt it has zero issues. It starts up with ease and has a nice smooth idle. Polished valve covers are in place with a chrome circle air cleaner that looks great. Other nice polish parts include the chrome alternator and polished radiator. Headers into dual exhaust is in place and delivers a great sound routed out of the rear. The engine compartment is very nicely done and a custom mirrored firewall is in place which always looks great for popping the hood at car shows. Backing up the motor is a 350 automatic transmission that was also completely gone through and rebuilt. The car has a power brake system in place and utilizes a dual master cylinder. Not only does the car run well, but it is a comfortable drive too. A Nova front end is in place with a Ford 9" found in the rear.
Moving onto the interior you will see that it is a very nice combination of original vintage style components with newer upgrades. This creates a very cool appearance that is always a hit. The tan leather is very nicely done and is in great condition. The dual high back bucket seats are very comfortable and are easily adjustable. They sit to each side of a custom console that houses cupholders and the aftermarket AM/FM/CD player. On the dash are both original style gauges and a custom added Dakota Digital speedometer. Other upgrades include the polished Lecarra steering wheel that is wrapped in the same tan leather.
Overall, the car really has a very nice finish and would make a great classic whether your the collector or novice car guy. They marked a big change in body style for Ford and were produced for only a few years so you can bet they are going to be harder and harder to find as time goes on.
You won't find many Street Rods this nice priced at only $29,950.00!
