The custom/sleek exterior is just the beginning of what makes this 1947 Chevrolet Coupe so awesome. This is a full custom build that was made to impress in every way. That includes the plush leather interior, upgraded suspension w/adjustable air bags in front, and a dual-quad big block setup under the hood.
You can instantly tell this coupe has a cool style that took a careful custom eye. After all, this car might come from the immediate post-WWII era, but the red-orange paint is a modern application. So there\'s nice gloss that loves to add definition to some iconic curves - including the large rounded fenders and shapely hood. The shine is taken a notch with chrome bumpers and grille. And while you\'ll love this for classic style, there\'s also a modern sleekness that comes from details like the expertly chopped roof, deleted trim, shaved door handles, and frenched headlights and taillights. Plus, there\'s a thoughtful sporty flair in the way the polished Weld Racing wheels show off the extra meaty rear set and the exhaust tips are integrated into the running boards. And we bet you\'ll just love how you can use the air ride front suspension to dial-in the ideal stance on demand.
The suicide doors open wide to reveal a custom interior. It\'s a stylish and thoughtful total package that starts with the split-bench offering individual bolstering and a fold-down armrest for bucket-like comfort. Not only is it done in supple leather, but there\'s also a cool/custom southwestern pattern cloth insert, and the rear seats are done to match, too. And you\'ll see stylish details, such as Wabbits wood trim on the dash and billet trim. There\'s plenty of room to bring along family and friends, and so this is a very comfortable total package with cold blowing R134a air conditioning, power windows, cup holders, a Pioneer AM/FM/CD touchscreen head unit with Bluetooth. And while this is nice for everyone, the driver always gets priority. That\'s why you have a wood steering wheel on a tilt column, chrome foot pedals, B&M shifter, and a dash dominated by crisp VDO gauge package.
The engine bay has smooth color-matched inner walls and a shining heart in the middle. So while most big block motors have the look of intimidation, you\'re first thought here is probably more about the awards you\'ll win. And of course, this is a truly powerful setup. It\'s a 396 cubic-inch V8. And those awesome eyes of the throttle valve air intake have a mean look that feed an even meaner set of dual Edelbrock four-barrel carburetors. Plus, there are good supporting pieces, like an upgraded ignition, Milodon valve covers, serpentine belt setup, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fan. There\'s an awesome set of custom headers that utilize the big fenders to route the exhaust outside the frame and out the sides. The TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is a stout unit, and it feeds a Ford 9-inch rear. Keeping the big rubber planted to the pavement is a ladder rear with stabilizer link and adjustable coilovers. This is a seriously mean machine, but features like power steering, power brakes, and front discs up front help keep it a true cruiser, too.
