LOCAL RACE HISTORY- This 1934 Ford was a local old school original gasser and has been in the Pacific North West since new. The black and white photo of the car was taken at Woodburn drag strip in the sixties... At the time it had a 283 V-8 with Hilborn injection. The car was all white then and sported some graphics on her side "Goofin Noff". The owner and driver back then, was Jim Hoxit who belonged to the Ramblers Car Club. Jim was sponsored by the old Shakey's Pizza restaurant in Milwaukie Oregon. The gentleman that purchased the car from Jim spent the next thirty years restoring the car to show class condition it's in today. I have a picture album full of pictures documenting this car from the sixties through the 30 year frame off nut and bolt restoration. The craftsmanship is second to none. Multiple show/best of show winner. One of the best Show stopping Henry steel 1934 Ford coupes you will find anywhere......

PAINT & BODY- ***SHOW STOPPING NUT & BOLT ROTISSERIE RESTORATION*** Real "Henry steel" 1934 five window Ford coupe. Garaged from the 60's to present. Three ring binder full of pictures documenting every aspect of this nut and bolt rotisserie restoration. All work was done over a course of 30 years by a old school master hot rod builder, and fabricator. This was a labor of love. His intent was to build his dream car. The car was professionally chopped 3 inches, the door handles, hinges, drip rails, and trunk handle was shaved. Smoothed fire wall. The entire car was stripped down to bare metal. What little rust repair the car needed was done using replacement metal panels. a full custom floor was fabricated. Remote electronic solenoids now operate and open both front doors and the trunk lid. A absolutely flawless cherry red paint job was applied to the pristine original body resulting in one of the most beautiful paint jobs one will ever see. The paint was color sanded, buffed and polished to a show finish. The paint still looks as good as it did when it was applied, There are no blemishes or scratches. The car has never been washes, it has been dry washed only. There was a additional tail light frenched in under the rear window. Louvered removable hood engine side panels. The frame was completely stripped to bare metal and repainted the same color as the car. Every nut and bolt was polished, painted or replaced on the entire car/undercarriage. The underside of the car is spotless. The paint is flawless. The body lines and panel gaps are perfect. The car has never seen rain. I detail the undercarriage once a year to keep it in show ready condition.
