1948 Ford Street Rod Coupe. DGC8251. VIN #. 899A2218251. This is a RAT Rod or a “you finish” car with thousands of dollars spent on it. Rebuilt 351 Ford W H code V-8 engine. Aluminum radiator. 1964 completely rebuilt C-4 transmission. 9” Ford rear end. Power 4 wheel disc brakes. Power steering. Mustang II front end. American Muscle 5 Spoke Wheels with Firestone tires, all new. Vintage heat and air. Air blows cold. Check out photo showing 9 degrees. Tilt column. Specify windshield wiper kit. Specialty power windows and keyless door lock system. Shaved doors and trunk. One piece windshield . Chrome nerf bars front and rear. Frenched tail lights. Coil overs in front. Dakota digital gauges. JVC sound system. I know I have left things off. So how did this car get to this point? It was bought in Oregon in 2008 and taken to Montana to be restored. The reason this car was chosen was because no rust and no body damage. I have lots of receipts. The receipts are divided into years starting in 2008 and going to 2016. The body was stripped to bare metal. All the work was put into the underside and all the running gear. I was really impressed when I saw the underside. When he had it all all set up and drivable he then took it into a paint shop to have it painted. I have heard these stories before about getting your car painted. The painter had it a long time, then sent it to another painter. When it came back it had new paint and I have to tell you one of the worst paint jobs I have seen. With all the work he had done he was not happy and did not want to work on it anymore so he gave it to his son to finish. The son lives in Seattle and he never did anything to the car. There is no interior other than late model Ford Thunderbird seats front and rear. It does have sound deadening on the floor. Now the car just sat in his garage. He wanted it gone so he sold it to his neighbor who is a big car guy. The new owner had the transmission rebuilt. So the car runs and drives very well. We have driven it probably 25 miles or more between Andrew and me. I was told that over $50,000 was spent on it? We just had it serviced and safety checked so it's ready to go.
