1933 Ford Other Additional Info:

1933 Ford 5 Window Coupe. This is an all steel (Henry Ford steel) car with the exception of the fiberglass front fenders. Originally a rumble seat car the rear seat has been converted into a nice trunk space. The roof has been filled and chopped 4 inches to give the car that sinister, classic hot rod look. The rear fenders have been widened to help them surround the giant 16 ½ inch wide tires. The gaps on this car are awesome and the panels and fit are fantastic. The 33 was then painted with Grabber blue, another Ford color, this one belonging to the Mustangs of the 69 and 70 era. The attention to detail in the body and paint on this old hot rod is awesome.

The interior is just as nice. You want a comfortable environment while cruising, and this street rod has comfort as well as style. The interior is all black. The seats are early Mustang (more Ford for a Ford), perfectly covered in black leather. The custom door panels are leather, to match. The gauges are Stewart Warner, with a nostalgic look and modern reliability. All of the lights work, all blinkers, hazards, brake, high and low beam. There is also a small electric windshield wiper on the driver’s side that works great. The wiring is all modern Ron Francis wiring. There is a new stereo (JVC), with a CD player, I-pod hook-up and is blue tooth ready.

The Battery has been relocated to a custom steel box, under the trunk, with its own steel cover, for easy access and to keep it hidden and out of the way. A custom aluminum fuel cell was fabricated just for this car, and resides where it should, hidden and out of the way, under the trunk. There is even an electric fuel door with a hidden button under the dash that works perfectly. While focused on the inside of the car, I should mention that the cowl vent works excellent and has three positions that give plenty of ventilation, even on the hottest days. The windshield retains it’s factory installed hinged top and cranks out, to give even more cabin airflow and as if that wasn’t enough, the rear window rolls down as well! The automatic shifter works great, and the pistol grip handle itself was made personally by me, so I know for a fact it is the only one in the world. It is made from solid brass, with billet aluminum inserts. The sheet metal pieces in the interior have been painted gloss black to match the leather upholstery. There is a handy shelf below the rear window, that also holds a chrome fire extinguisher. The leather and stainless steel banjo style steering wheel, tilts, and telescopes.

Moving on to the mechanicals of the car, you will not find the typical small block Chevy powering this great ride. Now, don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with a small block Chevy engine. They are wonderful power plants, but back in the day if you wanted the hot set-up, you opted for what rumbles between the fenders of this beast. As you may have already noticed, yes it has a HEMI. This is a 392 Hemi, that once breathed life into a 1957 Chrysler 300C, and now barks life into this 83 year old Ford. The Hemi has been built with all the right parts and sports an original to the 57 300C, the cast iron dual quad manifold. These are rare manifolds and not easy to find. Back in 1957 the 392 cubic inch Hemi was rated at 375 horsepower and 420-lbs.ft. of torque. I have never had this engine on a dyno but it is a fair bet to believe it easily beats the stock numbers and in this little coupe it feels very stout. Behind the Hemi you will find a 727 Torqueflight automatic out of 69 Roadrunner. Further back is a Currie Ford 9” rear end. This all adds up to a pretty indestructible drivetrain. So, no matter what kind of numbers this Hemi puts out, or will ever put out, you can rest easy that this drivetrain can handle it. Stopping power comes from a Wilwood set up, with discs in the front and drums in the rear. The suspension is all modern as well. Up front you will find a Heights Mustang II style independent unit, with Stainless wishbones and rack & pinion steering and in the rear a 4 link set up.

This is a Classic Hot rod (or Street Rod) if you prefer. Some purist hot rodders may not like the Pro-street look of the tucked giant tires, or the finished and nice look of the interior. My opinion is that these cars are a statement by the owner. Whether that statement happens on the street, at a show, or on a drag strip. The statement is whatever you want it to be. The one thing that this car will never do is blend in. If you don’t want attention, this is not the car for you. If you want to cruise down the street, with your arm hanging out of the window, or around your girl and be the envy of almost everyone out there, then this might just be your car. Take it to a show and you will win trophies. Take it to a cruise in and you will be swamped. This is a car that is meant to be driven, I drive this car (a lot) and it should be that way.

I will entertain trade offers that make sense. Questions, etc....feel free to call me at 207-649-3519
