Lot #688 - Simply elegant with power, this Champagne Silver beauty is all-Ford, all-steel from body to drivetrain. It features a 427 polished Ford motor with 425+hp and over 500 ft/lbs of torque, an MSD ignition and serpentine belt system. Chopped 4, the lines on this body draw an elegant and simply beautiful car. This is one classy rod with its generous 4+ person capacity. The interior is a beautiful, almost buttery, doeskin color featuring very soft, Italian leather by Finish Line Interiors of San Jose, CA. The handles are shaved and taillights frenched in. On the interior, a radio speaker grille hides the Vintage Air controls. It also features automatic windows and trunk with remote as well as a wonderful appointment of gauges. Additionally, the interior has been blanketed with Dynamat for noise reduction. The frame is powder-coated, embracing a Mustang II front end, 9 posi-traction rear end, automatic 4-speed with overdrive, power steering, power disc brakes, and is rolling on custom Intro wheels, 18 on the rear and 17 in the front. Other features include suicide rear doors, air shocks on rear with air pump in trunk, exterior battery charging posts, Ididit steering, Lucky 7 remote system for windows and trunk, EZ Wiring system, shaved ashtrays, console between front seats, Alpine stereo system, ample room for four people, tinted glass and no keys. This car was originally customized by two friends in their two-car garage in Fresno, CA, in 1994. They called the car My 40 Limo. The car was then re-created from the beautiful '40 to today's version of an elegant rod in 2007. Explained in short: the power of a true rod and elegance of a luxury car.
