This roadster’s very responsive steering is achieved by a Ford industrial box with customization that enables you to efficiently and effectively adapt the steering characteristics to your specific needs.

Powered by a 300 CID inline six mated to a Toploader 3-speed manual transmission with overdrive, this powerplant generates an impressive 220 horsepower. Weighing in at just 1,900 pounds, this roadster moves!

Finished in a Black Diamond basecoat/clearcoat, the finish has a beautiful luster. Other elements of distinction are its original 1935 16” Ford wire wheels and handmade grille insert. You’ll also appreciate its rear push bar, which can be removed to reveal a tow hookup. LED tail lights will keep you safe on the street.

The interior features two black bucket seats with seat belts. An impressive array of Sunpro gauges are housed in a brushed aluminum panel. An ancillary Autogage tachometer and speedometer will keep you informed about what’s going on under the hood.

Since completed in 2015, this roadster has been featured in the April 2015 issue of Cruisin’ Times magazine, shown at the Cleveland Piston Power Show, and featured on the turntable in Summit Racing Equipment’s showroom. Titled as a 1979 Ford truck, this car comes with a clear Ohio title and is ready to enjoy.

A corresponding car trailer with tie-downs and ramps can be negotiated if desired.
