Nobody built a bad-looking car in 1934and#44; but Dodge managed to make their affordable cars look upscale and elegant. If youre looking for an awesome Mopar alternative to the usual Fordsand#44; this gorgeous 1934 Dodge 5-window coupe has a lot to offerand#44; ranging from a 400 cubic inch V8 to all the creature comfortsand#44; all wrapped in one of the most stylish designs of the period.<br /> <br /> This is an older build that still looks greatand#44; and thats because they didnt go with what was trendy at the timeand#44; but rather timeless details that will always look good. The body and front fenders are original 1934 steeland#44; while the rear fenders are fiberglassand#44; probably because parts for these Dodges are none too easy to come by. The burgundy and gray paint job adds to the elegant look and splitting the colors along the factory body lines makes it look like they intended for it to look this way all along. There are signs of use and ageand#44; but we can guarantee that you will show up and have the only 1934 Dodge coupe at any show. The hood is beautifully detailedand#44; so much so that it looks custom-madeand#44; but noand#44; the bodywork is just the way they did it when it was built. No chopped roofand#44; no shaved handlesand#44; and the only notable deviation from stock is the removal of the rear-mounted spare tire. The ram hood ornament proves that Dodge has been Ram Tough since day oneand#44; and even the fabric roof insert is 100% intact.<br /> <br /> The interior captures a luxurious look from the pastand#44; using pleats and comfortable fabrics to create an interior thats not so different that what it might have had in 1934. Of courseand#44; its been considerably upgradedand#44; including a tilt steering columnand#44; digital LED gaugesand#44; and an AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit. Theres also an in-dash CB radioand#44; whichand#44; while not functionaland#44; will give you an idea of this cars build date. A 4-spoke steering wheel with a proper Chrysler logo on the horn button makes it look very completeand#44; and details like the crank-open windshield and original door hardware make it feel suitably vintage. Its spacious for twoand#44; and if you want a rod for a road tripand#44; this cars largeand#44; fully upholstered trunk makes it ideal for going places.<br /> <br /> The 400 cubic inch Chevrolet V8 fits neatly under the hoodand#44; putting big block cubes in a small block package. Its not detailed for showand#44; but it works rather welland#44; starting easily and moving with genuine authority. Theres a Holley carburetor up topand#44; an Edelbrock intake manifoldand#44; Mallory Unilite distributorand#44; and stock rams horn exhaust manifoldsand#44; all proven performers that make this car both reliable and powerful. Service access is decentand#44; even with all that hardware packed in thereand#44; and theres nothing here that will be unfamiliar to a local mechanic. The front clip is the original independent front suspension customized with power front disc brakes and power steeringand#44; and with new shocks it rides and handles rather well. A TH350 3-speed automatic powers a Ford 9-inch rear endand#44; so the powertrain is proven and sturdyand#44; and with new shocks up front and air shocks in backand#44; it rides surprisingly well. A newer Flowmaster exhaust system sounds great and it sits right on a set of Cragar chrome mags with 205/70/14 front and 255/70/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A radials.<br /> <br /> Unique and well builtand#44; this handsome Dodge brings a lot of unique features to the partyand#44; plus some old stand-bys that ensure itll be reliable for another 20 years.
