The inferno-style paint is what is going to make you pay attention to this 1947 Ford Super Deluxe Coupe
But as you dig a little deeper, you’re going to discover the best features, too, like a strong V8 power, an overdrive transmission, and a custom A/C interior. So the full package is quite an irresistible build.
This coupe has an unmistakable custom appearance from the first moment you lay eyes on it. It starts with the fire in front that’s consuming the full front end. These flames blaze down the body with a custom multi-color fade that’s highlighted by green pinstriping. Any place that has fire hasn’t touched, there’s desirable black that has a glossy finish and loves to shine. Before this paintwork was done, the body was prepped and smoothened to be straight. Sleekness was a priority with shaved door handles, deleted body trim, sport mirrors, frenched headlights, and flush-mounted tail lights. Plus, the wide dual exhaust tips and 17-inch polished alloys with aggressive stance are all about showing that this is a speedy streetrod.
The burgundy interior is a full custom setup done for both comfort and style. Everyone gets a bucket seat, including the rear. The door panels, dash, and center console are all custom pieces, too. There are plenty of modern amenities, like power windows, door poppers, an AM/FM/cassette stereo, cup holders, and cold-blowing air conditioning. More than just comfy, this was built to be a driver. You get a Lecarra sports steering wheel on a tilt column, and it gives you a clear view of the crisp VDO gauge package.
At the center of the dark engine bay is the bright presentation of the 350 cubic inch V8. The motor has been upgraded to inhale deeper with Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake. Shorty headers add power and rumble to the dual exhaust. The motor fires up eagerly with the kind of strength that’s ready to hit the road… and that’s what this coupe was made to do. That’s why you have some excellent upgrades like the Mustang II style front suspension and a 700R4 four-speed automatic with highway-friendly overdrive. There’s also power steering, power brakes w/front discs, and ZR-rated sport tires for a confident and easy driver feeling.
This is a legendary Ford upgraded for a ton of all-around appeal.
