As far as unique looks and options go, this Body by Murray 1934 Ford Victoria is in the running for first place in both of those categories. This Victoria was found in a shipping container in the heart of Texas by its current owner. Unknown for how long it had been stored there, he decided to bring the car back west. Surface level rust spots were scattered throughout the body, but instead of repainting the car, he had a better idea. The rust spots were buffed, polished, then clear coated to give the appearance of an old, weathered car. The rest of the exterior is done in a classic Ford Washington Blue, which has also been polished and clear coated giving it a smooth finish. To offset the body, the owner added Aurora Red spoke wheels wrapped in blackwall tires and had matching red pinstriping added to the hood louvers. The unique looks of the car draw in attention from car enthusiast of all kinds and is guaranteed to be a one-of-a-kind anywhere it goes. The two-door sedan had always featured a small luggage compartment behind the rear seat, but access was always through the interior. The Victorias now featured a swing-out back panel which gave access to the luggage area from the outside and utilized a removable canvas bellows cover, enabling additional storage. This Victoria has other tasteful exterior options like a greyhound hood ornament, dual cowl lights, dual taillights, Ford Script safety glass in all the windows, and a rear-mounted spare tire with a locking metal cover.

The cabin, including the front and rear bench seats are done in a light tan mohair-like cloth material with a bright and vibrant mahogany-colored dashboard. It comes with a factory option radio positioned in the center of the dash and a venting front windshield.

Included with the purchase of this vehicle is an original 1934 Ford instruction book. This well-sorted and well-optioned ’34 Ford Victoria is ready to be shown and enjoyed, and its next owner will proudly be able to present it at events around the country.
