For Sale – 1934 Ford Roadster Pickup Magazine Project Picture and Description:
FIRST PROTOTYPE 1934 FORD ROADSTER PICKUP MAGAZINE PROJECT TRUCK: Before we explain what you're looking at here, permit us to ask you one very direct question: How many opportunities do you have to make a good first impression? The answer is obvious. We all have one chance to make a good first impression. The same concept applies to the 1934 Ford Steve's Auto Restorations custom roadster pickup, as it's the first of its kind in the world. We are referring to the fact that you're looking at the first prototype, the very first of its kind built by Steve Frisbee and his team of professional fabricators at Steve's Auto Restorations in Portland, Oregon - www.StevesAutoRestorations.com. If you haven't heard of SAR by now, you need to climb out from the rock that you've been living under that has prevented you from hearing about one of the elite professional hot rod and street rod manufacturers and builders of our time. Steve Frisbee and his team of automotive craftsmen are known as the wizards of the 1933 and 1934 Ford roadster. They have crafted from new virgin sheetmetal better than original 1933/1934 Ford roadster bodies that Henry Ford himself would be astounded by. Several years ago, while I was the Feature Editor of Custom Classic Trucks Magazine, my Dad and I commissioned Steve and his crew to transform a 1933/1934 Ford roadster pickup body into a 1933/1934 Ford roadster pickup cab. Here's the difference. We asked Steve and his team of pro craftsmen to build us a car bodied pickup cab. Ford originally made some 119 1934 Ford roadster pickups, but they were just like the truck roadster pickup cab bodies from 1932 and 1933, the all squared off truck roadster pickup cabs akin to the 1932 Ford truck roadster pickup. Also, they ran a 1933 Ford truck grille, which doesn't have the beautiful Art Deco influenced 1933 and 1934 Ford car grilles that hot rodders, street rodders and 1933/1934 Ford roadster restorers love to build, own and show. To make ourselves perfectly clear here, what you're looking at and have the opportunity to bid on and possibly win is the first prototype of an all-steel, all brand new 1934 Ford roadster pickup project truck. The project is half-finished and is comprised of the very best components in the street rod/hot rod hobby. All new, all steel 1934 Ford Steve’s Auto Restorations custom roadster pickup body (1st prototype), custom Pro’s Pick bed with electric aluminum tonneau cover and oak and stainless stringer bed floor, and four all new steel fenders. SAC Hot Rod Products fully boxed frame with custom tubular crossmembers, equipped with Kugel Komponents polished stainless steel IFS and IRS. Completing this custom state-of-the-art chassis are Wilwood ventilated and slotted disc brakes at each corner, six-piston calipers on 13-inch rotors in the front and inboard four-piston calipers stopping 11-inch rotors on the back. The Ford Racing Sportsman 351W V-8 was bored, stroked, balanced, blueprinted, and built to 427 cubic inches by premier engine builder Ben Smeding of Smeding Automotive. Induction is a Hilborn EFI stack fuel injection system. The engine was dyno’ed at 555 horsepower and 557 lb-ft of torque. Also included are: a Flaming River polished stainless tilt steering column with steering shaft and polished stainless u-joints to a manual rack and pinion steering system, a LeCarra banjo steering wheel, a Hot Rod Air HVAC system, a Flexalite aluminum radiator with an electric fan and shroud, a 17-gallon stainless steel fuel tank, a custom stainless steel ceramic coated tubular header and tubular exhaust system, a Zoop’s serpentine system, and a Kugel Komponents behind dash hanging pedal assembly with remote mount aluminum master cylinder.
