1934 Ford Custom Limousine
This unique car is a replica of a Mercedes-style limo that consists of a hand-built body on a custom chassis. I cannot even imagine that Mercedes really built something like this with that crazy looking top! The workmanship of the body is absolutely remarkable, along with all the chrome and high-gloss black finish…it’s simply breathtaking! I’m out of breath just looking at it!
The chassis features an independent front suspension with power rack & pinion steering and power disc brakes. The rear suspension consist of a 4-link setup holding in place a late-model 8.8″ Ford Mustang rear axle with disc brakes. (Maybe they should have considered a Ford 9 inch?) The drivetrain for this car comes from a 2004 Ford Mustang featuring a 4.6-liter fuel-injected V8. (If we are going to go crazy, why not a Coyote 5.0?!) And an automatic overdrive transmission? I am really surprised it is not a stick!
The limo is also set up with air ride suspension at all four corners. The interior has been finished in custom black leather and features air conditioning. (Really? Two little vents in the dash are going to cool this entire car? And to think this is a focal point of the car!) It also includes power windows, tilt steering and a custom stereo. The rear top is a fold-down style and the limo also has a front top that snaps in for the driver. The car drives extremely well on the road with a nice tight feel to it, very smooth and dependable. (I certainly hope so! It would not be embarrassing enough to drive around it, but to be broke down on the side of the road?)
Overall is seems to be very unique and costly to build! If you have a limousine service and you need to be noticed, this is the car for you! Just park it on the corner and people will flock around it taking pictures. For me, I think I will take the bus! And what exactly is that hood ornament?
