1947 Ford


This way cool, satin black '47 Ford belongs to Roger and Jackie Murphy of Cincinnati, Ohio.  This car already had a very nicely done S-10 front clip and a 9" Ford rear end with lowered springs and lowering blocks.  As you can tell it has a very low stance (the front fender was 3" off the ground).


The low stance caused a bit of a problem to drive, so Roger brought the car to me for a full air ride set-up so he could raise the car to a reasonable drive height.


With the air full out, it does sit 2" lower than it did before, but the main objective was to put driveability back into the car.  I also added a front sway bar for flat cornering.


This is one of my favorite customer cars so far.  It has gorgeous red leather interior and vintage style pinstriping.  Very cool!
