With an upgraded A/C interior, upgraded suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, a ZZ4 performance crate V8, and a vibrant, steel and sleek body, this 1947 Ford Deluxe makes quite an impact wherever it goes.

The investment in this body reminds us instantly why we all love the rounded curves of the 1940s Fords. There are frenched headlights, frenched taillights, expertly eliminated door handles, louvered hood, deleted trim, and an overall sleek style than stock. But even with this streamlined style, all the right elements are still in place for a great vintage look. After all, the bumpers shine like mirrors and the three-bar grille is iconic. And the polished wheels have a 14/15 inch front/rear stance to both the shine and sportiness of this coupe. It’s all wrapped in a vibrant red that also has custom pinstriping front and rear to make sure this one can impress both from blocks away and when people get up-close.

This was built for a roadster style that is open to the world, and so the tweed cloth interior really keeps this one practical on sunny days. In fact, while you will see stylish elements (did you see how the pinstriping returned on the dash?) you can also tell they really kept comfort in mind with this custom. That’s why you have features like an AM/FM/CD stereo and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. As a true cruiser, the driver has terrific upgrades, like a banjo-style sports steering wheel, a tilt steering column, and full auxiliary gauge package. Plus, the power steering and a three-speed automatic transmission make driving easy.

The engine bay is also part of this full custom setup. You have color-matched inner walls, a color-matched block, and a color-matched air grabber with custom pinstriping. This level of detail really shows this was a thoughtful build. More than just look great, you have serious power in there with a 350 cubic-inch ZZ4 performance crate V8. There’s also an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and headers feeding the dual exhaust. As you look underneath, you’ll also see terrific upgrades like the Mustang II-style independent front end, Ford 9-inch rear, and four-wheel power disc brakes.
