Go Cruisin’ USA With This 1934 Ford Hot Rod
All-steel, period correct 30’s Fords are timeless cruisin’ classics. They simply never get old or boring, and have stood the test of time. There’s something about a well done street rod that exudes character, class, and cool.
This 1934 pickup possesses all of those characteristics and more. The icy teal paint looks simply fantastic, and is a nice contrast to the typical bright colors you primarily see on street rods. The painted steel wheels with chrome hub caps are the only option for this type of car, and mismatched tire sizes provide a perfect rake.
Things have remained mostly old school underneath as well. The front suspension features a chrome tube front axle, with adjustable coil overs and a sway bar in the back. A flathead bored-out to 256 cubic inch V8 provides the power, backed up by a Borg Warner T5 4-speed.
Four-wheel disc brakes are a welcome addition in these early cars, providing more than enough stopping power to make it a daily driver. The interior has been redone in a tasteful gray, with a spun aluminum gauge cluster that embraces the retro feel.
While other styles have come and gone over the years, the original hot rod has continued to thrive, and trucks like this ’34 promise to make cruisin’ cool no matter what new trends come and go.
