Description for Ford 3 Window Coupe 1933

If you want attitude, few cars deliver it better than this 1933 Ford 3-window coupe which was previously a show car for Dupont paint! The look is iconic and arguably one of the very best designs of the 1930s, so it's no surprise that these are popular cars to build. Fortunately, it also includes a whole host of comfort and convenience features that make it a pleasure to drive, so perhaps only the look has a bit of an attitude.
No real 1933 Ford coupes were harmed in the construction of this fantastic rod. Instead, it's a reproduction body entirely crafted from fiberglass (except for the steel 3-piece hood) on a chassis from Coming Attractions. As you'd expect, workmanship is quite nice, with good gaps and ultra-smooth flanks that show zero distortions. Dupont obviously wouldn't hold back, so the bright Ultra Violet Pearl paint is very vivid which means keeping a low profile is entirely impossible. That really should be no surprise considering the chopped roof, wild flame job, and color-matched grille shell that's all part of the look. On the other hand, it carries neat details like big commercial-style headlights, scrolled door handles like the originals, and handsome bumpers that replicate the originals. 1939 Ford taillights are a traditional look, and intricate flame work is absolutely gorgeous as it fades from pearl white to yellow to red to blue. And with only 718 shakedown miles on the build, everything is in exemplary, freshly-finished condition.
Pull open one of the suicide-style doors and you'll be blown away by the custom-stitched tan interior. The buckets are custom low-back pieces that seem a perfect fit in the cozy 3-window coupe body and offer adjustment and leg room the original bench just couldn't deliver. They're covered in handsome tan vinyl that does a heck of a good impersonation of real leather, and the door panels have been custom crafted to match. Thick carpets on the floors are luxurious and help control noise and heat, while the headliner is taut and well-installed. The dash is a simple flat panel that replicates the shape of the original 1933 Ford piece, and offers a set of traditional gauges from Classic Instruments and there's a fabricated center console with a pair of cup holders to make it road-ready. Hidden vents for the HVAC system keep it looking tidy and the AM/FM/CD stereo almost looks like an OEM installation. A bit of storage behind the seats joins a fully upholstered trunk in making this a car built for road trips.
The engine is a 350 cubic inch Chevrolet V8 with a few performance upgrades and a show-stopping look. Look past all that purple paint and you'll find a big 4-barrel carburetor, new wiring, an electronic ignition system, ceramic-coated shorty headers, and that custom air cleaner, it's ready to rock. Finned valve covers were painted to match the bodywork, as were things like the block, intake manifold, and radiator shroud, and just about everything else was polished or chromed. The built TH350 3-speed automatic transmission will handle the horsepower, so reliability is a non-issue, and it cruises effortlessly at supra-legal speeds thanks to modest gears in the Ford 9-inch rear end. The frame is functional but not detailed for show, and features a custom I-beam suspension with disc brakes, while out back there's a traditional 4-link setup with coil-over shocks. The exhaust features throaty Flowamster mufflers and dumps just ahead of the rear axle, so it's absolutely got a hot rod sound. And for that perfect hi-boy stance, big-n-little 195/60/14 and 255/70/15 radials are wrapped around polished billet wheels from Colorado Customs.
Al attitude, no hassles, this '33 Ford packs a traditional look and modern comfort. Call today!
