1933 Chevrolet Eagle Additional Info:

After years and years of looking at Ford hot rods at shows, imagine the positive responses you'll get in this clean 1933 Chevrolet Eagle town sedan. No fiberglass replica, this clean Bowtie rod has a fantastic vintage look that's full of neat details and thoughtful upgrades to create a hot rod that can go anywhere in style.The two-tone color paint job is a variation on the original look, with silver bodywork and darker burgundy fenders, and the combination looks fantastic on the boxy '30s shape. Nobody's building fake 1933 Chevy sedans, so this one has factory sheetmetal and a clean look that hasn't been radically altered from the way GM stylists designed it more than 80 years ago. The flowing fenders look like they belong on a much bigger, more expensive car and the hood doors look trick, even today. You'll note that nothing has been chopped or altered, so there's still a simple hood ornament atop the painted radiator shell, a set of elegant door handles, and even a pair of sidemounted wire wheels. Heck, there's still a fabric insert in the roof! Finish quality is very good, with a deep, brilliant shine and only a few signs of use, which is easy to understand given how well this one drives. The bumpers shine up nicely and we especially like the built-in trunk out back.Inside it's thoroughly modern, with handsome two-tone bucket seats that feel better than the chairs in your daily driver. Neatly finished, the entire driver's compartment oozes quality, with fitted mats, simple door panels, and lots of thoughtful touches. The dash was color-matched to the body, just to add a splash of color, with the window garnish moldings painted to match. VDO gauges are fitted into a wood insert in the center of the dash, along with the controls for the Vintage Air HVAC system, which uses vents under the dash to keep the interior nice and comfortable. A three-spoke steering wheel on a tilt column makes it easy to sit back and get comfortable and the back seat is big enough for real-sized adults or a few weeks' worth of your gear on a long tour. And the trunk out back is big enough for tools, supplies, or luggage for a show.Originally built with an inline-six, the 350 cubic inch crate motor in the car today was part of a massive upgrade a few years ago. It's neatly installed and very professional, and makes great power thanks to an Edelbrock carburetor, aluminum intake manifold, and upgraded ignition system. There's enough chrome here to make it worthwhile to open the hood at shows, and with a giant radiator and electric fans up front, it never seems to get too warm out on the road. Block-hugging headers feed a custom dual exhaust system that's just about right for this elegant little sedan and a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission means it's effortless to drive. The front suspension is a Mustang II setup with power rack-and-pinion steering and disc brakes, while a Ford 9-inch rear end hangs on easy-riding leaf springs with traction bars. A custom gas tank in back feeds the engine and modern tube shocks are fitted all around to really make this car ride and handle well. Staggered aluminum wheels are both traditional and contemporary, carrying 195/70/15 front and 235/70/15 rear blackwall radials.Standing out doesn't mean building yet another custom Ford, it means doing a great job with something a little unusual, and this 1933 Chevy totally nails it.
