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.
