Space 14: 1947 Ford Coupe Street Rod – $38,500 OBRO
Long before the term “Restomod” became an overused noun, vintage cars rebuilt with modern drive trains and luxury features were known as street rods.

A dear friend of the owner, Grady, is selling this ’47 Ford on his behalf that is now offered for the asking price of $38,500 or best reasonable offer. If you are serious about purchasing this quality street rod, you can start the conversation by either calling Grady at (713) 819-1103 or emailing him here.

Powering this coupe is 350 cubic inch LT-1 Chevrolet small block mated to a column-shifted 700R4 automatic transmission sending power to a narrowed Ford nine inch rear end. Stopping this powertrain on demand is four wheel disc powered brake system while a modern power rack makes easy work of steering this Street Rod down the road.
The comfort side of the equation starts with a Chuck Rowland Ultraleather® upholstered interior designed to match the grape colored exterior paint.

While the custom center console highlights the aftermarket radio and built-in cell phone that were both state of the art at the time of this build, those are both easily updated components. Most importantly, the interior temperature is always kept in check by a Vintage Air HVAC system.
