For Sale: 1933 Ford Custom in Cadillac, Michigan

Vehicle Description

1933 Ford SPEED STAR ROADSTER The SpeedStar is a Bobby Alloway-designed '33 Ford roadster unlike any other. If you're not familiar with Bobby Alloway, he's the man behind Alloway's Hot Rod Shop in Tennessee. He left his full-time gig at a Ford dealership to pursue building hot rods full time, and if you've never heard of the Ridler-award-winning builder, then you're just not paying attention. The original SpeedStar was built in 1995, and Alloway, working with his friend George Long of Rats Glass, pulled a few molds off it in an attempt to recoup the costs of building the original (which went on to win more than a few national awards). What he ended up with was a phenomenon that took the rodding world by storm, winning award after award for its unique and modern take on the classic 1933 Ford.This 1933 SpeedStar roadster was professionally built by Hot Rod City, and features the very best components and craftsmanship as it should be, since this car was their showpiece for several years. It lived in their showroom, carefully separated from curious fingers, and perfectly preserved. I can't imagine what it cost to build, but judging by the level of craftsmanship and detail that went into it, it was easily six figures.First off, this might be the nicest fiberglass body I've ever seen. Not only is it straight, but the finish inside and out is nothing short of astounding. There are no waves, no ripples, no thin areas where the substrate is visible, and I had to check twice to make sure the hood and hood sides weren't steel, they're so nice. Clearly the guys building this car took the already nice Rats Glass body and elevated it to the next level through hundreds of hours of filling, massaging, and plain old block sanding to get it this nice. Alignment is near perfect, and body lines are highlighted as part of the design.The paint is a custom mixed House of Color candy pearl yellow that isn't quite yellow, but isn't gold, either. There's a lot of pearl in there.
