Classic Cars: Know Where to Look for Rust Before Buying

If you're thinking about buying a classic car, you should know where to look for rust and how extensive the repair might be.


Classic Car Overview

1934 Ford 40 Cabriolet The 1934 Ford V8 is infamous as being the vehicle in which the notorious Depression-era bandits Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were ambushed and killed. On May 23, 1934, the two outlaws were traveling in a stolen 1934 Ford sedan in Bienville Parish, Louisiana, when a heavily armed law enforcement posse opened fire and riddled their car with bullets and buckshot, killing both and bringing an end to the infamous gang. Clyde had actually written to Henry Ford telling him of his satisfaction of the car and its power! For consignment, a 34 Ford that, Clyde Barrow, who famously died in a 1934 Ford, would have given his eye teeth for! Some fancy body styling modifications, a gorgeous color combination, loads of power, and a convertible, this sexy street rod is a definite head turner. Exterior All but perfect body panels courtesy Downs manufacturing. The top is stainless steel and has been chopped 3 inches. The hood is also Rootlieb steel. All extras like door handles and bumpers and turn signals have been shaved, and a 4 additional tub was carved into the rear fenders. Speaking of which they are chromed Real Wheels with 15 x 6 in the front, and 15 x 10 on the rears which are wrapped with Hoosier Pro Streets. The car has been bathed in Burgundy upper body, and Cream lower body. A very nice Burgundy canvas convertible top is affixed, and movers up and down with ease. It has a nice tonneau cover, as well as a full car cover. Interior Popping the remote activated doors, door panels are revealed, and these are covered in red leather. They sport billet aluminum styled door handle and lock. Climbing inside youll be grabbed up by Red leather covered buckets courtesy a Fiero. These float within a sea of red carpet. Reaching from the dash is an Ididit steering column topped by a chromed Billet Specialties steering wheel. Vintage air is installed and blows cold. A Downs fiberglass dash front also in matching red, fronts the seats and steering wheel, and has a smattering of VDO gauges (Note the odometer does not work...it is digital and just reads out - - - -.) Keep it simple is the mantra for this dash, and it could not be truer. Interior of the convertible top is like new, and chromed hinges are noted. Last but not least a Kenwood 10-disc CD changer will keep you occupied for hours on end. Drivetrain A Chevrolet 4 bolt main 383ci (consignor stated) V8 complete with internal mods like Crower crankshaft and rods, J&E pistons and heads courtesy of Dart. Polished custom valve covers get into the show on the topsides. A B&M 250 polished supercharger topped by dual 600 Edelbrock carbs. This is all highly polished bare metal and presents just beautifully. Bolted on back is a GM 700R-4 TPI performance transmission with a 2000 stall converter. A Ford 9-inch rear with 4.10 gears will certainly be enough to make some smoke. Undercarriage As expected with a build of this quality the undercarriage is pristine. We see a strong frame and bolt on such as a Heidts Mustang II style front suspension, and a rear 4 link with Aldon coil overs and an anti-roll bar. Also, a new 21 gallon stainless fuel tank gleams proudly underneath. Steel HPC coated exhaust pipes with Borla mufflers can be seen making its way rearward. Drive-Ability Actually, Clyde would have given way more to hold under his foot the power this car offers. It starts right up, and you are provided with a thunderous growl. Pop it in gear and you will have a very smooth shifter and a great ride with the suspension setup. Oh, and did I mention there is some kick for the pants if you so desire? A simple but elegant build from a Downs kit car. Meticulous attention was paid to the details, and as a result we have a well sorted street rod, looking great, and ready to provide your getaway, we presume it is a vacation?!
