1933 Ford Other Roadster
Watching award-winning customs roll through our RK Motors Charlotte showroom never gets old. But sometimes we get the feeling that the modern street rod movement has become more about flash and less about substance. After all, ot rod culture started with guys who drove their cars out of necessity, nd showed them out of desire. This razor-sharp Ford is a direct result of what happens when top notch parts meets over a year of specialized labor. And if you're a discerning rodder who's looking for a car that offers more than shiny chrome and bright paint, t's your one-way ticket to bigger and better things!
Assembled from the ground up, his awesome roadster's smooth and solid fuselage began life as high quality Factory Five Racing fiberglass that the current owner structured into a streamlined roadster that sits on a Factory Five Racing Chassis. Once the build was finished, t was shipped to Precision Collision in Denver, orth Carolina. The pros at Precision Collision borrowed a line of paint from the Lexus brand called Rimi Red to give the roadster a distinct and vivid color that has already started turning heads in our showroom. And today, ith nary a ripple or misaligned panel anywhere, his positively gorgeous Ford mixes enough utility to hush old school skeptics with enough polish to be front row at the car show!
The beauty of a well-done street rod is often found in the simplicity of its execution. In a nod to the hobby's old school hot rodding roots, he best cars are usually topped with a stripped down, ll business body that emphasizes their purpose-built, igh performance nature. So, hen you craft a world class custom like this killer '33 Ford, he best thing to do is let its original curves do the talking and simply enhance what's already there. Our enhancements begin with flowing fiberglass fenders, hich center a brushed aluminum grille between chrome-trimmed Ford headlights. Behind that grille, lightweight hood anchors smoked glass between elegant mirrors and a black roll-bar for added safety. Below that glass, haved coach doors seal solid along smooth fiberglass running boards. Behind those boards, wo bright tail lights and a polished tag bracket ride between the trunk and wide chrome exhaust tips. And overall, he car's top notch build creates one cohesive classic that, espite significant customization, s both tasteful and easily recognized.
In the name of both reliability and performance, t's common practice for traditional street rods to employ souped-up versions of proven powertrains. However instead of opting for a typical LS or 350 like so many builds before it, he builders decided to add a dressed up potent Ford Racing 302ci V8. The cast iron mill utilizes aluminum heads, ull roller rockers and a flat tappet hydraulic cam to produce an estimated 350hp. At the top of the engine you'll find a chrome air cleaner that gives the engine bay a very clean look. Once air enters that filter, t flows through an Edelbrock 600 cfm 4-barrel carburetor that is equipped with an electric choke. The car also has an auxillary electric fuel pump that ensures reliable start-ups regardless of how long the car has sat. From there spent gasses travel out the ceramic coated headers into a true dual stainless steel exhaust. Cooling comes courtesy of a polished aluminum radiator that's complete with a chrome cap and a large quick-spinning electric puller fan. Aesthetically, he glossy engine compartment combines with the motor's mirror-like casting to provide a natural contrast which oozes performance appeal. The net result is a buttery smooth, uscle-bound V8 that, hrough its distinctive rumble, oretells the car's true hot rod nature.
Naturally, he car's Factory-Five body rides on a full Factory-Five chassis that's been assembled to exacting standards. The proven 302 sends power to a tough A0D 4-speed automatic complete with overdrive gear. From there power travels down the driveshaft to a familiar Ford 8.8" from a mid 90's Mustang that is equipped with 3.55 limited slip gears. That custom drivetrain pushes a road-ready coil-over suspension, hich sports rack and pinion steering and inboard mounted front springs. Quick stops are a cinch thanks to disc brakes found at all four corners. At the center of the floor, rue-dual stainless exhaust breathes through throaty chambered mufflers that have been wrapped in a heat shield. At the corners of the chassis, 7" Chrome rims turn 245/40ZR17 KumHo Esta 4x's in front of 285/40ZR17 Kum Ecsta SPTs. And everything, rom the car's glossy black frame to its stainless steel fuel tank, s well-planned, ell executed and ready to work its magic!
Pop this Ford's suicide doors and you'll find a custom black leather interior that beautifully blends simplicity with class. At ground level, lack carpet weaves a thick cover beneath color-keyed floor mats that wear the Factory Five logo and billet foot pedals. At the center of that carpet, ou'll find a leather wrapped Lokar shifter in the center console that flows into an armrest between driver and passenger. Above that console, body-matched dash sports a full array of Auto Meter gauges. Seating is provided by plush, eather-wrapped buckets that feature trouble-free, anual adjustment. In front of the driver, polished and leather-wrapped steering wheel spins around a chrome column. At the sides of the passengers, ustom door panels hang billet hardware and provide an extremely upscale look to the interior. While a radio isn't present the builders were wise enough to wire the car for a radio if you felt inclined to add it to the Roadster.
