Either way chances are you’ve been thinking about how fun it would be to own one someday. Well today is that day.

Your new stud’s make is a 1934 Ford Coupe whose styling has become synonymous with the idea of ​​an old-school hauling car. Under the hood, you might expect a small block or supercharged V8 engine. However, only the most hardcore enthusiasts might be able to check out the 502-cubic-inch V8 engine under the hood. A block this massive is something reserved primarily for hardcore racing.

While it produces plenty of horsepower and torque, it’s quite easily controllable in terms of transferring it all to the rear wheels. This is due to the Turbo 400 automatic transmission, the name of which is quite well known in the classic automotive industry due to its popularity in drag racing. To top it off, there’s a set of 3.73 gears in the rear that make acceleration possible. Overall, it’s a great hot rod for anyone who likes the sound of a V8, which could be you.
