Description: “The Lakester”, a 1934 Ford 3-window coupe powered by a 600+ horsepower Bill Mitchell 427 c.i. small block Chevrolet, and whose build was inspired by the high speed racing at the Bonneville Salt Flats. The coupe was completed in 2011 and shown at multiple indoor and outdoor hot rod & car show events and receiving awards for best of show and best engineered. Additionally, Street Rodder Magazine awarded the car the “Best Shaker Award” with a featured article in their May 2012 issue. It was also featured in a 2013 Hot Rod Calendar by Dale Moreau. This is truly a one-of-a-kind coupe with many hand-built and unique features which will not be found on any other ’34 Coupe.


There is only a total of approximately 1500 miles logged on the odometer and the car appears as fresh as it was when first completed. No disappointments.
