1934 Ford 5-Window Coupe HiBoy
In a world full of wannabe glass Rods and cookie cutters, it is so nice to get my hands on a ‘real’ Hot Rod! Feast your eyes on this absolutely gorgeous all Henry Ford steel 1934 Ford 5-Window HiBoy, built by California Hot Rod builder, Craig Wallace! Back in 1992, Craig sold the Coupe to Dick Brooks, a legendary Hot Rod builder from Idaho. The Boise Autorama named Dick Brooks a ‘Master Builder’, and many of his cars were featured in well-known national Hot Rod publications. Unfortunately, Mr. Brooks, passed away on Wednesday Nov. 13, 2013, at his home in Idaho, forcing his family to sell his prized collection. His all-time favorite Hot Rod was this all-steel 1934 Ford HiBoy, which was chosen as one of ‘American Rodder’s’ Top 40 cars! Also, Mattel created a die-cast replica 1:24th & 1:64th set of this ’34 Ford Coupe for their ‘Hot Wheels Legends’ series (see photo). One of the 1:24th die-cast replicas in the original box will go with the car! Another fun fact: this Hot Rod held the track record at Firebird Raceway in Boise, ID for several years in the Nostalgia Drag Class. The fastest time was 10.2 seconds @ 127 mph. Keep in mind, this was back when she had a blown motor and not the engine that is currently in the car. This is a very special '34 Ford HiBoy w/ outstanding history! Please look at these photos closely! The stance on this HiBoy is absolutely second to none, and the 3.5” chop is absolutely perfect! The roof is filled and louvered, as is the roll pan and trunk lid. There are actually 760 louvers, which I think looks absolutely incredible! The bodywork is absolutely outstanding and laser straight all around the car. The Taxi Yellow paint (PPG Deltron) really pops and looks incredible on this Coupe! There are (2) hoods that will go with the car, one with cut out for blower/tunnel ram. The custom black leather interior was done by Dale Woods and was meant to be simple and race ready. Features include: custom built adjustable seats covered in rich black leather, original steel color-matched dash, full set of (6) Auto Meter gauges, w/ separate Auto Meter Tachometer, 4-spoke racing wheel, Hurst ratchet shifter w/ Skull knob, 5-point Simpson racing harnesses and full roll cage. The interior is very comfortable and highly functional! Under the 3-piece hood lies a built 350 SBC w/ Holley 600cfm carburetor, Isky solid lifter camshaft, Mallory dual point ignition, custom built ceramic coated headers w/ cut-outs, etc., linked to a TH400 automatic transmission w/ B&M Holeshot converter, which feeds power to a Stock Car Products ‘Quick-Change' rear end w/ 3.73 gears. Several sets of additional gears will go with the car, to change out as desired. She starts, runs and drives beautifully and is very FAST! The early Ford disc brakes up front w/ Buick drum brakes on the rear make stopping easy and the Vega Steering Box makes driving around own effortless. Underneath, the coil-overs w/ shocks, spring & hairpins up front & Magnum axle make handling nice & easy. Please look closely at all of the photos including the undercarriage shots, which show just how nice this all-steel Hot Rod really is. I mentioned the stance earlier but it’s worth mentioning again, as she sits just right and looks perfect from every angle. She sits on American Racing 5-spoke wheels w/ spinners (12x16 on the rear & 4x15 up front) wrapped with massive BF Goodrich LT345/55/R16 on the rear and skinnies up front. This one-of-a-kind Hot Rod has been featured on the cover of several Street Rodding magazines and has won countless First Place/Best Of Show awards & trophies! It can be driven anywhere at anytime and is very reliable for cruises & long distance Rod runs. It can also kick ass at the Drag Strip if you choose to do so! This is a very special car on many levels and has everything that you look for in a real Hot Rod: incredible good looks, strong performance, reliability and an outstanding pedigree! Anytime you get the chance to acquire a Street Rod that was owned by a master such as Dick Brooks, it is really a no-brainer! These opportunities do not come around too often and when they do, they usually disappear just as quick as they appeared. Do not hesitate because she will not last long! Enclosed shipping is available anywhere in the world at the buyer’s expense.
