Originally, the Ford Deluxe Coupe represented attractive personal transportation back in 1940, and Street Rods that carry forth in that tradition are always welcome. This multi-award winner remains all steel, being a recent custom build by Mike’s Service Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, completed in 2016. Featured in “Street Scene” magazine, chosen Best of Show at the Atlanta edition of the World of Wheels, and noted by NSRA in both 2016 and 2017, this car shows beautiful detail throughout. Underneath the hood resides a 350 HP Chevrolet 350 CI small-block, with FAST Inglese-style fuel injection, a custom 240-amp alternator and a Concept 1 belt-drive system. In addition to those details, coated headers and stainless dual exhaust complete the package, which in turn is backed by a new Turbo 350 automatic transmission and a rock-solid Ford 9-inch rear end. An estimated $36,000 was spent in this car’s custom stereo, including overhead Bluetooth capable receiver, Morel speakers, dual Audison amplifiers, Morel Ultimo subwoofer, custom wiring, body-colored fiberglass enclosures, sound insulation and LED lighting throughout. As you might imagine, hands-free connectivity is part of this. The interior is equal to the task, with two-tone Cream Ultraleather upholstery, Mercedes-Benz carpets, Vintage Air and power windows, locks and trunk. The banjo-style steering wheel is mounted to a polished Ididit tilt column, which uses power steering and is coupled to a Heidts front-end design. Stopping is with ease thanks to Wilwood 4-wheel disc brakes using drilled and slotted rotors, and the car rides on Billet Specialties wheels with spinners and shaved blackwall radial tires. Chassis Engineering supplied the rear suspension. The exterior color is a spectacular color called Red Jewel Tint Metallic, and this car even has stainless bumpers and brackets. Unmistakably upscale inside and out, with an unequaled sound environment and careful construction, this real-deal all-steel ’40 Ford Deluxe is ready to rock ‘n’ roll.
