Of all 1934 models offered by Ford, the Victoria Deluxe 2-door sedan, also known as the Vicky, with its V-shaped grille, formal roofline and blind rear-quarters, remains a standout more than 80 years later.
This rare all-steel, ‘slant back’ 1934 Ford Victoria street rod is an older build with recent and desirable updates. Finished in shiny black, the Vicky is accented by iconic Fire to Flames art-in-motion artwork completed by the famous airbrush artist Mark Leuck of El Cajon, California. To hard-core enthusiasts, Mr. Leuck is best known for his artistry on the California Kid ’34 Ford 3-Window hero car of 1970s movie fame. Recently, Mark has touched-up and signed his work on this ’34 Ford for the current owner.
Power is delivered by a 350 Chevy small-block mated to a GM 700R4 automatic with a Lokar Gennie shifter. Exhaust is removed by a set of Hooker headers feeding a dual exhaust system including new Flowmaster polished mufflers and tailpipes. Excellent supporting items include a new Edelbrock fuel pump. Underpinnings include a Mustang independent front suspension and Jaguar IRS, with stopping via 4-wheel disc brakes. The comfortable interior features silver-gray leather upholstery including the headliner and black carpeting. The power-operated driver’s seat faces an original steel dash fitted with Classic gauges and built-in A/C and heater controls and the polished aluminum Flaming River steering column is topped by a leather-wrapped, billet aluminum steering wheel. A remote CD stereo system provides entertainment.
The most recent updates to the Vicky also include the addition of power steering, new Street Fire HEI distributor, a new front bumper, new rear nerf-style bumpers, LED headlights and cowl lights, new windshield chrome framing, new front seat belts, new locking door handles, a new oogah horn, a rear-view camera, a new gas tank, and a new battery, which is discreetly located in the slant-back trunk compartment. Great extras include two highly collectible and original 1934-dated Arizona copper license plates numbered 9BV4 and only issued in the Copper State from ’33 through ’35, and Mark Leuck’s signature on his iconic flaming artwork.
