READY TO CRUISE STREETROD, 350 V8, AUTO, 4-WHEEL DISCS, R134A A/C, CUSTOM FRAME!
This bright red 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 streetrod.
Of course it's fiberglass at this price, but where else are you going to find smooth flanks and undamaged floors, especially since original steel bodies are as rare as honest politicians. Finish quality is quite good despite being finished in the early 2000s, with nice, straight seams, good alignment of those massive suicide-style doors, and a lot of time invested in sanding the fiberglass to make it look good. Bright red was never on the Ford color pallet, of course, but maybe that was an oversight because it looks phenomenal on the '33 Vicky bodywork. The grille shell was painted to match, and contrasting pinstripes are a nice touch that makes it look elegant. The authentic look continues with a set of cowl lights, stylish door handles, and Ford dipped bumpers that are correct for a '33. We also like the big original-style headlights that give the car a substantial look, the smooth billet grille insert, and twin '39 Ford taillights out back.
Inside, it's nicely finished and perfect for road trips, offering low-back gray tweed buckets and all the creature comforts you'd expect from a top-notch piece. The Vicky body style allows expansive room front and rear, yet it's a lot more stylish than a frumpy sedan. The dash has been smoothed and modified to hold a set of Auto Meter gauges, the controls for the Vintage Air HVAC system, and defroster vents up top. There's also a custom center console with a Camaro shifter and a special enclosure for the AM/FM/CD stereo system. Other goodies include a polished tilt column with wood-rimmed Grant GT steering wheel, power windows, and seat belts front and rear, so this really is a car that you can use to take the whole family with you.
The engine is a 350 cubic inch Chevy V8, which shouldn't come as a surprise. As you can imagine, the car is a blast on the street, and drives beautifully without any high-strung nonsense that afflicts some rods. The open 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. Finned valve covers, Chevy Orange paint, and chrome accessories make it sparkle and a Holley 4-barrel carburetor and MSD ignition ensure reliability. For easy cruising, there's a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission spinning a Ford 8.8-inch rear with 3.55 gears inside, so performance off the line is impressive but it's still comfortable on the highway. The completely fabricated frame and suspension features a Mustang II front suspension, rack-and-pinion steering, and 4-wheel disc brakes for some serious stopping power. Handsome chrome Torque Thrust wheels offer a traditional hot rod look and are staggered for the perfect rake with 195/60/15 front and 235/75/15 rear Michelin radials.
This is a beautifully built streetrod that was recently freshened and remains very appealing. Fully sorted and ready to rock, you couldn't build it yourself for this price. Call today!
