1934 Ford 3 window coupe

1934 Ford 3 Window Coupe

This is a great example of a well-balanced hot rod. Amazing new interior. Runs great, everything working–turn key. This isn’t a trailer queen. It is the kind of car that you get in, start, run errands in, or drive to the local car event. It handles well, is comfortable to drive in the city or at speed on the freeway. Its steering and brakes are solid and predictable and the suspension is tight. It has plenty of V8 power and a healthy exhaust, but isn’t obnoxious.

This is a chop top 34 Ford Coupe (3 window). Built on a TCI chassis with an Outlaw body. The hood and louvered side panels are steel.

Ford 3 Window coupe 1934


Chassis: TCI Chassis, Mustang II independent front coil suspension. Rack and pinion steering, disc brakes, new tires. Rear axle is a Ford 8″ with drum brakes, leaf springs, and new tires. Aluminum billet 5-spoke wheels that are well suited for the car and tire sizes give it a nice balanced stance with a slight rake. Wheel center caps are a ‘knock off’ style. Dual chrome tipped exhausts. 12 gallon fuel tank.

Engine: Chevy V8 with Holly carburetor. It’s a 283 2-bolt block, 202 heads, nice aluminum valve covers and alternator. Aftermarket flex fan, chrome air cleaner and distributor cap. Dipstick is aftermarket with braided stainless housing and billet handle. Radiator overflow tank is chrome vertical column. Billet aluminum pulleys. Headers.

Transmission: Turbo 350 automatic. Shifts are firm and has appropriate torque converter (good street manners). Transmission cooler mounted under car in chassis. Shifter is a nice floor mount shifter with billet handle.

Interior: The interior was just redone and only has a couple of hundred miles on it. It was completely redone with leather seats, matching vinyl headliner, door panels, trim, etc. The carpet is a square weave Mercedes spec. All components new (pedals, shifter, brake handle, column cover). There is a battery shutoff switch under the passenger seat (great for longer storage periods or extra security). The seats fold forward or tilt back and slide on tracks. There is an access panel from behind the seats to the trunk. The space behind the seats is fairly large (no passenger capability there). The gauge cluster has a custom machined billet housing as does the stereo. VDO gauges (except tachometer that is a SunPro model separately mounted). The Odometer has a separate trip odometer with reset. Small LED indicators are on billet gauge cluster for turn signals. Electric windows are controlled by concealed switches under dash. Steering column is a Chevy tilt wheel style with a nice aluminum and wood aftermarket steering wheel. Glove box is an aluminum box behind a fiberglass door. Switch to open/close trunk is located inside behind driver and trunk and has electrical ram operation. Wiper and lights have under dash concealed billet controls

Trunk: The trunk is opened/closed via electrical switch behind driver seat. The trunk has same carpet as interior and houses the battery in a plastic container covered with a custom cover. Pass thru panel allows access to area behind seats from trunk.
