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

1938 Ford Deluxe Sedan You may not realize it but you just stumbled across one of the nicest 38 Fords on the road. We list a lot of different types of vehicles and there is just something special about this one. It is one of those where even classic car novices can look at it and realize someone invested some serious time and money building the car. If you were to try and replicate it you would invest a significant amount over and above our asking price. So avoid the waste of money and hassle because this one is ready for a new home! It has undergone a complete frame off restoration and prior to the build the car was a 100% rust free driver car with only 35,000 original miles. Starting with a solid base goes a long way and the result is an all steel body that is incredibly straight and paint which is some of the slickest out there. It was clear that the painter knew what they were doing because the Sikkens Brilliant Red paint on the car is incredibly clean. It isnt just on the body too! A majority of the undercarriage was painted to match the top. The car was built to be driven and enjoyed so you can expect some rock chips on the undercarriage but with a little detailing you could easily throw some mirrors under this car and show it off. One of the most eye catching features on this style of car is all of the stainless work which shines just as beautiful as the paint on this 38. Same goes for all the chrome, emblems, and hood ornament. All of the tinted glass is in good condition and it also has received a more modern windshield which eliminates the center chrome piece from the 2 piece style glass they originally had. This car really applies the combination of originality with modern upgrades well. Things like the flush mounted gas cap are very subtle modifications but all of those add up to make the car really something special. The chrome wheels suit the car perfectly and combined with whitewall tires adds the perfect old school touch to the exterior. The drive train on the car is basically all new and under the hood sits a GM 350 crate motor with 4 bolt main. It has been topped with a Edelbrock 350 cfm carburetor and a ton of chrome. The engine compartment is very nicely done with a smooth painted firewall and cleanly routed hoses. Those little details are the first clue that the builder put a lot of care into this project. The car has a great sound thanks to the Shorty headers routed into the dual Flowmaster exhaust. Cooling is provided by the Griffin aluminum radiator and electric fans which keeps this thing running at optimum temps even during the Texas summer. The rest of the drivetrain features a TH350 automatic transmission and 8 inch Ford rear end with 2.79 gears. Whether you are cruising around town or headed on a long trip this car will get you there. Not only is it reliable but a very smooth cruiser. With power steering, power front disc brakes, and a Mustang II suspension the car rolls down the road very comfortably. The fun doesnt stop there because the interior was just as nicely done as the rest. The high back bucket seats are very comfortable and with the bench in back this car offers the opportunity to take the whole family out to the show which is something not every street rod allows. The two tone Red and White leather upholstery is in great condition and the door panels, seats and even trunk were all done to match. The dash of the car features a custom wood insert which looks great and is very unique. It is topped with White faced VDO gauges, small LED indicators, and the Vintage AC controls. The vents for the AC are nicely inset into the dash and the system is R134 so adding refrigerant is a simple process. Also mounted in the lower dash section is a JVC AM/FM/CD stereo with Aux hook up. In front of the driver sits a tilt column and the classic 2 spoke steering wheel. With all of the nice qualities of this car there is undoubtedly some features that we have left out. Billet pedals, power windows, aftermarket belts...the list just goes on and on. You can be assured that pretty much anything you could want in a modern Street Rod is packed into this classic. It comes with a car cover and photos of the restoration process. You find many cars of this quality available for only $39,950.00! Check out the video at https://youtu.be/nsnxOVnk52s
