1933 Ford 3-Window Coupe
The term “hot rod” refers to the early days when a person would take a typical car, modify it by removing fenders, hoods, and various parts of the body and in doing so reduce weight. Also engine modifications were typical with tuning options, and replacing engine parts to increase horsepower, as well as the entire engine, were typical of the movement. The goal was to increase straight line speed, which was tested originally on dry lake beds in the northern Los Angeles area.
A wonderfully built 1933 Ford interpretation shows the true definition of “hopped up”. From its chopped roof, to its massive Boss 302 engine, subtle flat black field with gloss flames emanating from the engine compartment, this immaculate custom street rod is stealthy, as well as sinister. The gearshift knob sums it up, depicting a racing helmeted, goggled, breather equipped vintage style drag racing head, this car will not stand still for long.
A fenderless replica Model 40-3 window coupe/roadster, chopped top 1933 Factory Five reproduction body sits atop a Factory Five chassis. Suicide doors make use of Ford reproduction handles and rear-view mirrors. Enclosing the engine compartment, are 2 side hood panels adorned with chrome cooling vents. A replicated vertical ribbed grille true to the design, in brushed aluminum, has two sealed beam side mounted headlights, as well as miniature aftermarket turn signals. The rear deck has a mechanically actuated trunk, and reproduction tail lights, dual polished stainless pipes, and a push bar make a simple but beautiful presentation. Chromed US Mag wheels wrapped with Towel City pie crust cheater slicks in the rear and treaded 175 R 15's on the front.
Dual black racing seats with Simpson harnesses sit in a red and black vinyl interior. A deep red thick pile carpeting covers the inter floor and foot boards and works in conjunction with black and red vinyl transmission hump and the center console coverings. A gray headliner adds a beautiful contrast to the interior. Red painted steel makes up the dash board and centered within is a cluster of Dakota digital gauges. An adjustable steering column with machined aluminum turn signal actuators, and column adjustment wand. The trunk houses the battery and a Boyd Welding all aluminum fuel tank.
The big Boss 302 fed by a Quick Fuel Tech 650CFM carb puts out a respectable 340HP. Coupled with a TCI C4 automatic transmission, and an 8.8 Ford 3:27:1 ratio differential, provides the Hot in hot rod. BBS polished stainless headers, as well as a dual polished stainless-steel custom exhaust system provide perfectly tuned music to the motorhead's ears. Rear suspension shows triangulated 4 link with coilovers, and front has cantilever coilovers. 4-wheel hydraulic disc brakes will bring the car to a halt to receive your winner's trophy.
