1949 Ford Coupe 327ci V8 4-speed

Description

Utilizing some of the original design aspects, and chroming them trim curves, power window toggles and door actuator mix nicely with the black background of the smooth vinyl door panels and seats. Speaking of which, the wide overstuffed high backs upfront and a circular dual attached via a center fold down armrest bench on the rear. These are all very nice, no rips or tears, and sport red piping for some extra bling. Front buckets have power adjustments. The dash drips late 40's design with the interplay of chrome trimmings and back painted curved formed metal. A single new circular speedo within a metal cut out wide surround and a few chromed knobs and some vertical ribbed forms trimming various areas. We could be revisiting some art deco styling, but certainly geared toward the upcoming rocket age. On top of the speedometer is a glass fresnel lens to help the driver see a changing traffic light due to the metal visor possibly obscuring the view, (they thought of everything!). Fronting the dash is an original steering wheel in white bakelite. A quartet of aftermarket gauges hangs below the centrally located radio, now an aftermarket digital AM/FM/CD player by Sony. Just above that in the factory formed circle on front of the center dash which used to house the clock is now a round tachometer. Also noted is a B&M converter lock up control. Within the flooded black carpeted floors, now protected by more Betty Boop themed mats is a B&M shifter and plastic molded center console/change holder/cupholder in black. Above is a nice tight black vinyl headliner.
A lift of the hood, and what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a Chevrolet 327ci V8 courtesy a Camaro. This is topped with an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor. On the back, a GM 4-speed 200R4 transmission. When viewing this engine, you'll have to wear shades as it is highly polished everywhere and has a red ribbed air cleaner atop with red wiring, headers, and a shiny like new master cylinder. Close the hood before I go blind!!
