1933 Ford Roadster
This 1933 Ford roadster is a custom build over every inch, so even the undercarriage impresses in ways most other cars can't even do with their exterior. And so if you're ready for the best of everything, continue reading for all the details.
The presentation starts with the right mix of a quality Rat's fiberglass body mated to a Dan Fink steel nose and grille. And this provides a strong base for those who love a slick presentation. Shaved door handles, headlights with integrated turn signals, and flush-mounted taillights make this classic look like it could cheat the wind. In fact, instead of adding drag-creating trim, this one has impressive custom graphics full package that add extra depth to the appearance without compromising aerodynamics. And you not only get a white pinstripe separating the black and purple base colors, but also there's custom pinstriping in all the best places like on the hood and trunk. And because superfluous brightwork is kept to a minimum, you really get drawn to some of the car's best attributes like the waterfall grille, front suspension, and staggered alloy wheels with cool knock-off style caps.
The black roof is actually a removable hard top, and so it looks good and fits snug. But with a true roadster like this, you're going to love even more what's underneath. The gray tweed interior strikes the perfect balance between coordinating nicely with the dark elements of the exterior and providing plenty of comfort. It's especially true on the custom seat that has a cool presentation and plenty of individual bolstering. This matches nicely with the door panels and carpeting for a uniform look that the best customs have. You slip behind a Lecarra sports steering wheel. It's black and chrome presentation matches nicely with the polished tilt column and gloss black dash. Beyond that, the full Classic Instruments gauges provide a clear picture of what's going on in the engine bay.
Grab your sunglasses before lifting the hood, because we dare you to find another component that can be polished. More than just an investment in an award-worthy presentation, you're looking at serious power with a 305 cubic-inch V8. It has been upgraded with go-fast goodies like a large Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, performance intakes, Griffin aluminum radiator, and shorty headers. And don't just listen to the rumble of the dual exhaust; follow its path in our undercarriage photos. There you'll spot a great presentation with a polished four-link front end, fully painted chassis, and painted Ford 9-inch with adjustable coilovers. And with a presentation this fresh, you know the few miles on the odometer were all careful ones. But when you do decide to take this custom machine out on the road, features like the TH350 three-speed automatic transmission and front disc brakes make sure you cruise with ease.
This was a labor of love where the consignor is also the original owner. It's a distinct Ford hot rod that's ready right now. But if you want to cruise tomorrow, you need to call today!
