It’s not often you’ll see an EcoBoost-powered car on our musclecar sites, but rest assured if you do, they’re plenty badass enough to share with you. This 1934 Ford Coupe was built by Detroit Street Rods in early 2009 to debut as a SEMA build. It features a 3.5-liter, twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 powerplant paired with a Tremec TKO five-speed manual transmission. Out back, you’ll find a modified Ford 9-inch rearend and a matching set of 3.90 gears.
According to the ad from RK Motors, “The V6 nestled between this street rod’s fenders, installed by Ford itself, was the first EcoBoost powerplant that — thanks to Livonia, Michigan’s Technosports — was adapted for use with rear-wheel drive; not an easy task considering the engine’s transverse design.”
Moreover, the rear suspension setup consists of a Heidts triangulated four-link suspension paired with a set of polished control arms and adjustable QA-1 coilovers. For the front suspension, Detroit Street Rods chose a Heidts Superide front-half and an additional set of adjustable coilovers, sitting atop a set of polished control arms and a matching polished sway bar.
Modern braking and steering amenities follow throughout, thanks to a set of Wilwood four-piston disc-brakes and a modern rack-and-pinion steering system. Inside, the custom interior features air conditioning, polished door handles, and bucket seats. Considering this beauty for yourself? The asking price on RK Motors’ website hovers just above $105,000 now, and will include the The car’s SEMA award at the time of sale. If you are in the market, you can check out the listing here.
