On Friday morning Mini Sport was awoken by the sound of a burbling 5.7L Chevy which had come for a run on the rolling road. The the big 1934 Ford Coupe was only bought in March after seeing it on AutoTrader Classics and getting it imported.

The car has only one previous owner having been rebuilt in 2007. It has an original chassis which has been boxed and strengthened before having a 5.7L Chevy Engine fitted with a Mustang Drive Gear. The Shell is completely Fibreglass. The car also houses a Ididit Steering Column that is a Tilt Steering Column and a Dakota Digital Dashboard.

The car is primarily used as a Show Car, regularly taken from Longridge into Preston once a month to a custom car cruise, allowing people to get a look at a car that is a very rare sight in Britain.
