The price tag for a custom build can add up extremely quickly. It’s not uncommon for them to stretch into the multiple 6-digits. But the results for those that finish their dream build are absolutely stunning. This 1933 Ford is no exception. This 3-window features a stunning look thanks to a unique color combination incorporated throughout the entire build, an extremely dressed up power plant, and a custom interior that is amazing. This custom 3-window 1933 Ford is available today for a fraction of what it would cost to build one like it.
You wouldn’t really expect that copper, white, and mint green would work well together on a paint scheme, but on this ’33 Ford build it really does. The top of the body has been shot with a light shade of white while the majority of the body is covered in a gorgeous shade of copper. The two paints are separated by a mint green stripe. The combination of the colors flow flawlessly throughout the entire body, undercarriage, and interior.
The body is a fiberglass Downs three window ’33 Ford body that was placed on an aftermarket chassis. The legendary look of the ’33 Ford is captured brilliantly on this custom build. It all starts with the massive front aluminum grille that is flanked by two massive headlights that rest on the front fenders. The steel hood covers a Chevy small block power plant, while the steel side panels have the vents down the side to help allow the hot air to escape the engine compartment. The steel rims have been shot in the mint green and look fantastic behind the white wall tires. Adding to the look, the doors have been equipped with suicide door hinges with manual locks. Below those doors, steel running boards have been covered in black rubber to protect the expensive paint job from nicks and dings from passengers entering and exiting the vehicle. Down the back of the Ford the white paint extends past the opening of the trunk for a very nice clean look. Everything from the stance, the overall look, the paint, everything is near perfect on this ’33 Ford.
Pop the hood on this ’33 and you’ll find that the previous owners opted to go with a reliable Chevrolet Small Block 350ci V8. The engine is extremely dressed up as it features chrome components including the chrome Milodon stamped valve covers and a chrome alternator. Everywhere you look, the engine compartment is ready for show at your local car show. Below the chrome air filter is an Edelbrock carburetor that feeds the air fuel mixture through an Edelbrock air gap intake manifold. From there the mixture is ignited thanks to an HEI distributor that sends the spark to each cylinder through MSD Street Fire Spark Plug Wires. From there the spent gasses travel to the exhaust system through a set of coated headers. In front of the engine is a Walker radiator equipped with an electric cooling fan that is responsible for cooling the small block.
Put the ’33 Ford on a lift and you’ll see an underside that is painted in the same copper that is found throughout the rest of the ride. Under the front you’ll find a Mustang II sub frame complete with coil over shocks. Bolted to the Chevy small block is a 4-speed automatic transmission that feeds power to a Currie 9” rear axle. Hoisting the rear axle is a 4-link suspension setup with coil-over shocks. Spent gasses travel through the aforementioned coated headers, and travel through dual exhausts that have been equipped with Flowmaster mufflers to create a great sound as it exits the back of the car. 4-wheel disc brakes are responsible for slowing the ’33 Ford, and in front of those brakes are 14” and 15” painted steel wheels with polished trim rings with smooth center caps that have been wrapped in Whitewall BF Goodrich Silvertown radial tires.
Swing open the suicide doors that are equipped with manual locks on this ’33 Ford and you’ll see how the interior continues the white, copper, and green theme. The leather like vinyl bucket seats feature white faux ostrich skin inserts that are flanked with copper edges and contain a touch of the mint green vinyl in the center. Small touches throughout the interior only add to the incredible look of the inside, for instance, the power windows are controlled by using the cranks as the switches. In front of the driver is a polished tilt steering column and aluminum dash trim that houses the Dolphin gauges. The MPH gauge is attached to the steering column while the dash houses the RPM, fuel level, oil pressure, water temperature, and volt meter gauges. Above the two seats is a taught white headliner. What appears to be a four on the floor is actually the controls for the 4-speed automatic transmission. Behind the two seats are the controls for the upgraded sound system.
Custom builds like this can be extremely expensive, with this ’33 Ford you can get the incredible results from what was a very thorough build at a fraction of the cost. This 1933 Ford is ready to anchor a collection, or easily pick up awards at the local car show.
