"1936 Ford Five Window Coupe Street Rod Restoration"
1936 Ford Five Window Coupe 525 HP Street Rod   

When I purchased this car, it was very obvious to me that she was being built for the drag strip.   There was almost no interior, a battery, gas tank , and panic switch were located in the cockpit.

I have been making changes over the years to this car, so she would be street legal, and more enjoyable to drive.

The frame is custom made with extra cross members added for strength.   The front suspension is Mustang II supported by a QA1 dual coil over shock system, and the rear suspension consist of four point traction bars, one pan hard bar, that are all supported by a QA1 dual coil over shock system as well.

The body is steel, fenders are fiberglass, the front and rear original bumpers were replaced with custom made stainless steel bumpers.

She has all the modern amenities, over head monitor console with digital rear view mirror / HD screen that mirrors' your phone, power steering, power brakes, and air conditioning. 

I have installed a high performance Blue Print Engine that is a 6.6 liter, SBC 400 Stroker, with a 850CFM Holley Ultra Double Pumper carburetor, MSD Ignition, and the engine bench dyno tested at 525 HP with a Borla exhaust.

The drive train is an automatic GM Turbo 400 transmission with a Hughes Heavy Duty 2500rpm stall rate torque converter, Transco performance kit, and a Locar Shifter display.   Ford nine inch rear-end with a 2.7857142 differential, and a Detroit no spin locker.   All this power is connected with 31 spline axels turning 33 X 22 Mickey Thomson SR's, hidden in the trunk.


This web site is dedicated to the history, and the restoration of this car.  It starts with the accidental garage find, and documents the trials and tribulations that I went though each year restoring her.
