Ford 3 window coupe 1934


The 3-Window ’34 is a licensed Hot Wheels hot rod model designed by Larry Wood. The car is modeled after a 1934 3-Window Ford Coupe. Ford produced three cars between 1932 and 1934: the Model B, Model 18 & Model 40. These succeeded the Model A. The Model B continued to offer Ford’s proven four cylinder and was available from 1932 to 1934. It was the first Ford fitted with the flathead V‑8. The 1934 Ford (the Model 40B) had a relative flat grille, straight hood louvers, two handles on each side of the hood, smaller head lights and cowl lamps, and a reworked logo. The bare metal dash insert was replaced by painted steel. The V‑8 output was increased, this time to 85 hp (63 kW), and the four-cylinder Model B engine was in its last year, as was the Victoria body style; nevertheless, there were fourteen body options, the Tudor being top-seller. The standard three window coupe was deleted. The ’34 Ford V-8 is infamous as being the Bonnie and Clyde “death car”. Both of the outlaws were killed in their stolen car in a May ’34 ambush by law enforcement officers in Louisiana.

The diecast model is a real 1934 hot rod. With the engine sticking out on the sides and hood, the chopped roof, this is one true hot rod. Being a Hi-Raker means that the rear axle has a plastic insert. This makes sure that the rear axle is raisable and lower-able. In 1987 the 3-Window ’34 was retooled and no longer featured the Hi-Raker rear axle.
