1934 Ford Convertible by Boesch Auto Body
I was in the mood for some old-school madness, and this 1934 Ford Convertible by Boesch Auto Body will probably make your day as well. This deep black 1934 Ford went through quite a lot of modifications; the decklid came from a 1940 Ford Tudor top, shaped to fit, and the taillight lenses were transplanted from a 1986 Taurus. This is merely scratching the surface, as many work hours went into this project. At the front, the modified 1933 grille shell with a Dan Fink insert has been dropped to fit, Dietz headlights are encased in 1939 Cadillac housings and everything reminds me of ZZ Top. Remember those legs?
The Recovery Room was in charge of the cloth top, stretched over top bows built by Dale. The top is designed to fit inside the rear quarter sheet-metal, to keep in line with that clean overall look. If you’re starting at that flawless black exterior, please note that Axalta ChromaBase with urethane clear is what made it possible.
Kugel Komponents provided the independent front and rear suspension components, with RideTech ShockWave air springs offering support. Inboard Wilwood brakes are controlled by an ABS electric master cylinder and a custom pedal assembly. Powering the car is a 1996 Ford 4.6-liter, with Manley rods and pistons and COMP Cams dual-overhead camshafts. The TREMEC TKO five-speed features a Tri-Ax shifter with a Hurst handle.
On the inside, the owner went for a street rod vibe. The seats and door panels were custom-made and covered in dark tan leather by The Recovery Room. The leather-wrapped 1966 Mustang steering wheel is installed on a 1968 Cougar column. The gauges were sourced from a Porsche and reworked by Classic Instruments. Gotta love it!
