Bruce Leven's Dream Car 1951 Ford Coupe Took $1.4 Million and 60 Years to be Built!
How much money you can spend on a car and for how long you can wait to have your dream car? For Bruce Leven, $1.4 million and 60 years are the answers of these questions.
It took $1.4 million and 60 years to do it, but Bruce Leven now has the car that resembles the street rod that he has seen in the 1950's. Inspired by vintage 1950s and 1960s race cars, particularly Ron Dunn's 1950 Ford Club Coupe, the lucky owner Bruce Leven set out to build a street rod that would be the best of all. Not only would this Ford be classic in design, but it would also be a perfectly functioning car that looks fabulously cool. This 1951 Ford Coupe is built by Wicked Fabrication of Auburn, Washington and the craftsmanship, attention to details, hardworking and the value that they put into this particular custom need to be appreciated. Every single detail was particularly thought for the car's interior and exterior, including color combinations and metal components. It runs on a 1956 Lincoln 368ci V8 built by Shaver Racing Engines. Making an astonishing 375hp and 389lb-ft of torque, the compelling engine of this 51' Ford is backed by a BorgWarner T-5 transmission. At the 2016 SEMA Show, this one-of-a-kind car was honored with the Goodguys Gold Award and Gran Turismo Award, leaving the authorities speechless by its beauty and complexity.
