ONLY 3,662 MILES, ROUSH BUILT 302/425HP, WILWOOD DISCS, GORGEOUS BUILD, AWESOME
This lovely 1933 Ford Victoria owes its life to Edsel Ford, who took his father's practicality and made it beautiful. Not quite a two-door sedan, but more than a 2-seat coupe, the Vicky is one of the great styling achievements of the early '30s, and makes one heck of a foundation for a rod.
Professionally built by someone in NASCAR community in 2007, this gorgeous car only has 3,662 miles on it since being constructed. The fiberglass body is by BeBops Glassworks and one of the best bodies available for this type of car. Finish quality is excellent, with super straight seams, excellent alignment of those massive suicide-style doors, and a lot of time invested in sanding the surface to make it smooth. Bright red was never a Henry Ford favorite, but he was definitely mistaken, because it looks phenomenal on the '33 Vicky bodywork. The grille shell was painted to match, and contrasting black fenders are a traditional look that dates back to the earliest days of motoring. I also like the large-scale headlights that look like they belong on the car, the smooth billet grille insert, and the inclusion of rubber running boards.
Inside, however, it's 100% modern, with black and gray leather Krist buckets and all the creature comforts you'd expect from a top-notch piece. The Vicky body style allows expansive room front and rear, so four can travel comfortably. The dash has been smoothed and modified to hold eyeball vents for the HVAC, as well as a billet gauge insert full of retro-looking VDO gauges. A polished tilt column wears a lovely banjo wheel wrapped in matching gray leather, and the center-mounted shifter is as cool as they come, complete with LED indicators. A custom overhead console holds the AM/FM/CD stereo system, complete with sub-woofer behind the back seat, along with the battery.
It's always refreshing to see a Ford engine in a Ford rod, and in this case, it's a Roush built 302 that cranks out a whopping 425 horsepower. As you can imagine, the car is a blast on the street, and drives beautifully without any high-strung nonsense that you'd expect from something with that much power. The engine bay is beautifully detailed with lots of chrome and billet aluminum, and someone clearly went the extra mile with the plumbing and electrical systems to keep it all so sanitary. Aluminum heads help save weight and build horsepower, while a massive aluminum radiator up front keeps it all cool. For easy cruising, there's a 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission spinning a 9-inch rear with 4.11 gears, so performance off the line is impressive. The completely fabricated frame and suspension features coil-over shocks, power rack-and-pinion steering, and 4-wheel Wilwood discs for some serious stopping power. Handsome Boyd Coddington wheels emulate the classic Torque-Thrust, and are staggered for the perfect rake, with 15s up front and 17s out back.
This is a beautifully built rod that was finished just a few years ago. Fully sorted and ready to rock, you couldn't build it yourself for this price. This car's a bargain! Call today!
