Description was changed 1/18/22 by the request of the previous owner to include his description:
This 1947 Ford Convert was originally sold new in Phoenix Arizona in 1947. It continued to live there until it's conversion into a street rod. This body is totally rust free and has never had any rust repair anywhere. Squeegees' Rod Shop in Phoenix did most of the custom metal work. Front and rear bumpers along with front and rear gravel pans were shortened 1 3/4 inches. Rear gravel pan was welded and smoothed to the body. All bumper bolts were welded to the bumpers then plated. Headlamps were frenched to the body and parklamps/turn signals frenched as well. Amber lenses were installed. Custom Gene Winfield tail lights frenched into the rear fenders. Door bottoms were extended 1 3/4 and the rocker panels were eliminated. Center windshield divider bar removed and v-butt glass was installed. Outside door handles were removed and replaced with solenoid actuated bear claw latches, These doors shut with just a gentle click. 1941 Ford dash was installed with in dash A/C, VDO gauges, and Alpine stereo CD. Newport 2 Speed electric wipers have also been installed. Under the seat heater for those chilly fall drives keeps everyone toasty. Hartz Cloth top with complete headliner to eliminate buffeting at highway speeds. Top is one button electric with new hydraulic rams and glass rear window. Split bench front seat with fold down armrests, and rear seat and door panels were trimmed in navy blue leather and cloth combo by Mastercraft. Tilt column with Le Carrera leather steering wheel. Italian wool carpet completes the interior. Side trim is custom crafted brass that has been plated. Parking brake and neutral safety switch ensures NSRA safety 23 approval. Front suspension is Mustang II with power rack and pinion. QA1 shocks provide an extremely smooth ride and 11 inch Granada rotors do the stopping. Parallel rear leaf's support the Maverick V8 rear end with sway bars both front and rear. Eric Vaughn real wheels with knock offs provide the perfect look for this car. A 302 Ford was professionally built by Tri Star E&T. The rotating assembly has been balanced, new Edelbrock aluminum heads with a full roller cam and rockers. New MSD ignition and wires. This engine dynode at 350 HP. The C-4 trans was rebuilt by Kennedy Transmission and includes a new torque convert and a mild shift kit. There is only 12,000 miles on this new engine and trans. A full 21/2 inch exhaust with Magnaflow mufflers and stainless tips complete the picture. The body is finished in a custom mixed silver pearl/ Navy blue pearl tutone. This is topped with a PPG Urethane clear that has been sanded and buffed to very high standards. I have owned the car for over 23 years. It has taken my family to many events across the United States in total comfort as it's a great road car. It is ready to drive anywhere/ anytime. As you can tell from this description this car has many custom features not found in most street rods. It was built with no corners cut. It would take more than twice my price to have this car built today.
