1933 Ford Custom Coupe
January 30, 2016
This nice fiberglass body with steel fenders three-window 1933 coupe is built on a custom tubular frame by noted builder “Doc”, King of South Florida. It’s painted in Blackout Maroon. When doing a dark color on a fiberglass body it could be costly to get near perfect as the fiberglass bodies are not exactly perfect from the molds. This car looks really straight and some work and expense has been applied to make this a really nice looking street rod.
The front suspension is a Corvette coil-over shock aluminum independent type, and a 4-link coil-over shock independent setup is installed at the rear. Brakes are hydraulic discs all around. When building a custom chassis as this is described, it can cost a lot, and easily soar into the tens of thousands pretty quickly!
The interior is upholstered in soft tan leather, matched with a velour headliner. Tan carpet lines the floor. The luggage compartment is leather lined and is in excellent overall condition. The cabin is equipped with air conditioning and power seats.
The engine is the popular 350ci small block Chevy, fuel injected and mated to a 4-speed overdrive Hydra-Matic. Surely a nice drivable car with many custom features. The cost to build and the resale may be far apart?
