1933 Ford Low Boy Roadster Some say nightmare, some say dream, either this 1933 Ford Low Boy Roadster is a result of vivid imagination and dedication to build only the best possible low boy around. The result of many years of building, tweaking, fitting, all the while keeping focus, resulted in what is shown here. The 1933 Ford body is finished in Purple Pearl Hot Rod Flatz paint color, channeled 4in over a hand fabricated stainless steel frame. Sitting in front of the body is an eye popping 353 Chrysler HEMI w/392 valves, solid lifter cam topped with a beautiful set of four (4) 97 Stromberg's sitting on a Crager intake that were fine tuned by Greg Gillaspy. The engine is finished and fine tuned by none other than Jim Marrone, Crew Chief of the 1964-69 era Don Big Daddy Garlits. That substantial power is transferred through a 5 speed Mercury transmission then to the Halibrand quick-change rear with a Ford 9in splined axle. Out front, the Elco tank is actually functional with a hand-pump under the dash. Other features that compose this build are Vertex magneto, custom fabricated stainless steel exhaust, F-dropped beam axle w/transverse spring, 1942 Lincoln backing plates & Buick drums, bright red finished bench seat, 1940 Ford dash, 1939 Ford column and 1940 steering wheel, 1952 Buick taillights, 16x6 steel wheels wrapped with F-6.00-16 Cocker/Firestone; R-7.50-16 Cocker/Firestone. Truly unique to the car is the absence of a fan belt driven water pump and alternator... The water pump is NASCAR style cam driven and alternator is rear mounted driven by the driveshaft. Radiator is mounted in the rear. This could be your dream too $ 89,900.00 obo GIVE US A CALL @ 909-596-5700 OR EMAIL US @ AMCLASSICS2@AOL.COM WITH ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU MAY HAVE
