WICKED CUSTOM BUILD, SLICK PAINT, NEW INTERIOR, 350 V8, 4 DISC, 4-LINK, FORD 9"!
For those of you tired of the same old Ford and Chevy rods, perhaps this 1933 Plymouth roadster will be a breath of fresh air. Long, low, and sleek, you can see where the Prowler gets its handsome good looks, and with a gorgeous tan interior and a rumbling small block V8 it's more than just a unique look.
Both the body and chassis are from Custom 33 in Indiana, and they seem to have found the sweet spot for unique rods. The full-fendered look and lowered belt line give this sweet roadster a very sporting look that's a little bit old school and a little bit 21st century slick. It's fiberglass, of course, but that also means that fit and finish are exemplary, with a solid feeling going down the road. The raked-back grille and high-perched headlights are definitely a welcome change over the usual stuff and you can see a bit of Prowler influence (or is it vice-versa) in the dovetailed rear fenders. The open hood sides are as much styling element as functional upgrade and with a fixed windshield, it has a more substantial look than most roadsters. The sizzling red paint is beautifully applied with almost no signs of use and while there isn't much chrome, the bright stuff that is on the car, including the grille and headlights, is like new.
You may have noticed that the Plymouth body is a bit longer than the usual Ford or Chevy, and that pays big dividends inside, where there's plenty of room for two folks with long legs. The nicely stitched vinyl upholstery does a fairly good impersonation of leather and the pleated pattern is repeated on the door panels for a cohesive look. Tan carpets help insulate passengers from noise and heat and a custom center console brings a bit of the red exterior inside the car. Cool Dolphin white-faced gauges are a little bit retro and a little bit modern, which is the perfect choice in this '33 Plymouth. There's also a billet steering wheel on a tilt column to help you get comfortable and that custom center console also houses speakers for the AM/FM/CD stereo head unit in the center of the dash. The trunk is outfitted to match and uses the same materials for a consistent, high-quality look.
A 350 cubic inch Chevy V8 provides the power, and the color-matched powerplant looks great peeking out from under the one-piece hood. Finned valve covers and air cleaner add an old-school look, while a Holley carburetor and block-hugger headers help build some horsepower. Polished aluminum is the dominant theme, but it isn't over-done, so you can drive it or show it without worries. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission feeds a 9-inch Ford rear end, so the rest of the powertrain is plenty tough for the rigors of a cross-country cruise. Even better, the custom coil-over suspension rides rather well and handles great thanks to a rack-and-pinion steering system and a 4-link setup out back. Four-wheel disc brakes should be standard equipment on anything that can go this fast, and it definitely has the right soundtrack with a pair of Flowmasters making the music. Gorgeous oversized Torque Thrust-looking wheels give it just a bit of rake and carry low-profile performance radials for a modern look.
Stand out from the crowd with this awesome little Plymouth and you'll probably find that you're not alone in thinking that different is definitely better. Call now!
