1934 Pontiac Custom Coupe Steel 5 Window Coupe - Hot Rod For Sale (Click Here)

Description:

Tired of the same old rods? Wish for something classic yet radically different? Check this one out—a REAL STEEL, original ’34 Pontiac five-window coupe with a turbocharged 350! If that doesn’t make you pause we don’t know what will!

Originally a successful ISCA show classic car dating back to the 1970’s, a frame up rebuild was commissioned in 2000, at a cost of $100K +! During the rebuild, a new balanced and blueprinted Chevy 350 V8 was installed by Mike Evans Precision Head and Block of Taft, FL, with extensive use of chromed, polished stainless steel and billet aluminum parts. The REAL star of the show, though, is the Turbonetics Evolution turbocharger with its ceramic coated plumbing and chromed exhaust. It sits to the right of the intake and is a draw through unit. The turbo was rebuilt and ceramic coated, as were the manifolds. The exhaust pipe was chromed, which is interesting. It runs right through the front fender, though—that’s MORE interesting!

The all steel 1934 Pontiac Coupe (five window) body retains most of its original appearance with the exception of a full steel top (the original used an open top, wood framed center sections) and conversion of the rumble seat into a conventional trunk which is opened by an electric remote. The door handles were shaved are and are now opened remotely. The remaining chrome trim was polished or re-plated by Space Coast Plating in Melbourne, FL. Side hood panels have been deleted to allow a clear view of the spectacular engine compartment which is mirrored in the polished stainless steel firewall insert. The striking waterfall chromed grille with the vertical bars is topped by the original art deco style Pontiac Indian Head hood ornament and bracketed by chromed headlight buckets with chromed external horns. Chromed cowl lights now contain the directional signals. After all steel panels were massaged into place, a brilliant application House of Kolors three stage Turquoise, topped with two coats of House of Kolors Blue Pearl paint, was performed by Paul Metz of Metz Rod and Custom in Eustis, Florida. Silver and Grey pinstripes accent the upper beltline.

The extensively modified ladder frame and underside of the vehicle have been painted in the same Turquoise color used on the exterior without the pearlescent topcoat. A GM-style front clip provides independent front suspension with Saginaw steering and front disk brakes. Power is transmitted to the rear wheels by a chromed driveshaft from the B&M Turbo Hydramatic 400 automatic transmission with chromed pan and Lokar shifter through a sophisticated Jaguar Independent Rear Suspension with inboard Girling style brakes and plated or polished links and coil over shocks. Updates were completed by Jerry Mishler of Sebring, FL, who’s known for such talents.

The interior now features a revised dash treatment with Dakota digital gauges, including a turbo boost gauge. The chrome tilt steering column is topped by a billet steering wheel, which fits in well with all the other billet accessories. Howard Krusey of Complete Auto Upholstery in Altamonte Springs completed the interior accommodations, which consists of alabaster leather and suede. Krusey also constructed the overhead stereo console and installed the Alpine AM/FM CD player which is boosted by a 200 watt amp playing through six speakers. You’ll be comfortable in here!

Street rods are a popular segment in the collector car market and tend to conform to a set standard or formula. Most are early Fords with small block Chevy engines and modernized chassis, brakes, and suspensions. The upper tier of street rods contains vehicles the deviate from the standard with unique features and imaginative engineering. Factors that make a vehicle stand out from the crowd include the attractive art deco style of the 1934 Pontiac, the seldom-seen turbocharging on the Chevy 350 and the exotic design of the Jaguar Independent Rear Suspension. Workmanship, attention to detail and quality of the components is excellent throughout. If you’re looking for a very cool car that will set you apart from the crowd, give us a call!
