For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/kbko2ta Powered by a legendary flathead, backed by a rugged 3-speed and dressed in traditional Ford Black, this former Rod & Custom feature epitomizes vintage American elegance. And if you're looking for a near-perfect cruiser that puts a new shine on pre-war ambition, they simply don't get nicer! Approaching this sleek beauty, it's difficult not to be taken with its killer profile. Josh Mills of Mills & Co., the man who originally envisioned the car, wanted to build a period-perfect 'prototype' of something James Cagney might drive in a well-done Film Noir. To achieve that lofty goal, he needed a solid profile that could benefit from very specific metalwork. Josh's journey began with a trip to the 2005 Charlotte Auto Fair where he found two '35 3-window coupes advertised on a small bulletin board. Initially buying one of the coupes, Josh eventually ended up with both thanks to an anxious seller. Because he wanted to do a chop, Josh sold the first, unaltered car in favor of a botched roof job on the second car. The next three years would be spent sourcing era-correct parts. And, after thoroughly massaging the coupe's Henry Ford steel, he shipped it to Customs and Color in Woodstock, Georgia for some of the best black two-stage on the planet! In keeping with hot rod tradition, this stellar Ford coupe is powered by a 284 cubic inch 59L flathead. Born in 1946, and machined and balanced by legend Putt Smith, the throaty mill growls with the help of a roster of vintage parts that includes an NOS Johnson valvetrain, NOS 81A rods and a Don Zig-prepped Harman & Collins Magneto. Fuel and air enter through a polished Edelbrock intake and, aided by a Mercury crank, a Winfield SU-1A cam and NOS Johnson lifters, exit through polished Fenton headers. Aesthetically, the block, which perches elegant air cleaners and dual 94 carburetors above aluminum Edelbrock heads, has been painted a traditionally dark hue. And cool details like a chrome generator, a chrome fan and reproduction Ford hoses add enough shine to win the show. Behind that engine, a '40 Ford 3-speed makes good use of a lightened '34 Ford flywheel, a '46 Ford clutch and 19/25 tooth Lincoln gears. Power flows to a '46 Columbia axle that, thanks to '40 Columbia controls, spins either 4.11 strip scorchers or 2.94 boulevard busters. In front of that drivetrain, a '40 Ford suspension hangs a 3.5-inch Mor-Drop axle behind '41 Ford shackles, a '40 Ford steering box and '39 Houdaille shocks. Behind that drivetrain, a second pair of Houdaille shocks combines with a de-arched '37 Ford spring to maintain the car's killer ride height. Stops come courtesy of '39 Ford brakes that, naturally, are piped to a '39 Ford master cylinder. And it all rides on clean, '36 Ford wheels which spin fresh 6.00-16 Firestone Deluxe Champion whitewalls around a fusion of '36 Zephyr trim rings and '37 Ford center caps. Pop this coupe's doors and you'll find an attractive Naugahyde interior that was installed by Burt Litton of Burt Litton Street Rods. At the front of that interior, a body-matched dash, which marries the bottom section of a '40 Ford with the top section of a '35 Ford, allows use of the car's stock windshield roll-out mechanism. Seating is provided by a '36 flip-up bench, which has been lowered over a modern JVC CD player. And in front of the driver, a '41 Mercury steering wheel laps a chrome shifter, a '40 Ford column and a modified '40 Ford harness. Stylish and alluring, this striking custom is a bellwether of pre-war creativity. You really can't ask for a more authentic blend of old school style and era-correct driving characteristics.

Approaching this Model 48, it's difficult not to be taken with its sleek profile. To achieve those striking good looks, the car had to be a solid starting point that benefitted from top notch metalwork. And once that metalwork was complete, it had to be shot with some of the best Blue two-stage on the market. Now, I know paintwork is often questionable on traditional pre-war cars, but this Ford's shine is first rate all the way. Reflections are straight and unbroken. There are no major imperfections visible anywhere. And overall, the car literally defines the term blue chip blue oval. As the company's final Henry Ford-fueled innovation, the Ford V8 remains a durable, torque-rich powerplant that, thanks to solid engineering, has established an unmatched reputation in the classic and custom car community. And, in keeping with tradition, this stellar Ford 3-window is powered by a correct 221 cubic inch flathead V8 that, thanks to relatively tame 6.12 to 1 compression, makes roughly 90 horsepower. The antique engine has undoubtedly been rebuilt, and probably looks much better today than when it growled off the assembly line. Take one look under this reliable 48 and you'll see just how much the automotive world has changed when it comes to ride, handling and structural integrity. The car's clean floors, heavy duty frame and factory-accurate suspension are veiled in a subdued coat of satin black paint. A correct 3-speed manual still lives behind the rock-solid engine, proving 'simple is good' by doing an excellent job of twisting an authentic, banjo-style rear end. And everything rolls on a striking combination of bright red wires, fresh 6.00-16 Olympic whitewalls and blue-detailed, "V8" branded hub caps. This coupe's warm and welcoming interior looks straight out of pre-war America complete with simple fabrics, tastefully neutral paint and awesome art deco gauges. The car's cockpit centers on a heavily bolstered seat, officially dubbed Ford Center-Poise, which provides good comfort and great visibility. In front of those seats, a stylish and simplistic dash hangs an optional AM radio behind unique Bakelite buttons. And in front of the driver, a painted, 3-spoke steering wheel frames a "V8" branded steering column. If you're ready to start taking home trophies and making tons of car show friends, it's time to put this awesome Ford Model 48 in your garage!
