1941 Ford Coupe Hot Rod Features Mercedes-Benz Leather Interior, Chevy V8 Power – Mircea Panait @Autoevolution

Updated in preparation for the unpredictability of the automotive industry in the Second World War, the 1941 Ford daw massive commercial success until 1948 thanks to affordable pricing, many options, and a lot of body styles. This particular two-door coupe, however, is a far cry from the original model both inside and out.

Offered by Duffy’s Classic Cars with an all-steel body, the old-timer Deluxe Coupe is now a full-fledged hot rod with General Motors small-block power instead of the Flathead engine that democratized the V8 back in the day. The 5.7-liter motor is joined by a Performer-series Edelbrock carburetor as well as an electric choke.

Shifting comes courtesy of a Turbo 350 three-speed automatic transmission and a Lokar shifter, and all of the suck-squeeze-bang-blow goes to a 3:73 posi-style differential for the Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck rear end. Disc brakes on all four wheels, power steering, dual exhaust, and a chrome alternator are also featured.

Painted in Tuxedo Black with custom flames, the 1941 Ford sweetens the deal with a leather interior with dual power seats from Mercedes-Benz. The one-of-one restomod retains the split front windshield of the original yet the bumpers have been deleted in the process. The hot-rodding theme continues with 15-inch steelies that match the flames on all four corners, wrapped in 205/70 and 255/60 rubber shoes, respectively.
