CRCSE SHOW: 1933 Ford Coupe

DSC_7520_72This 1933 Ford 3-window coupe might have rattled the cages of blue oval fans who spied the GM-sourced 350ci V8 underhood, but we’re sure they quickly got over their brand qualms when they saw the rest of this stunning street rod and came to appreciate the top-notch craftsmanship. That bow-tie block is good for 330 horsepower, which gets put to the pavement through a 4L60 transmission with overdrive. The rear end is a Ford 9-inch unit, with 3.73 posi. Ogden Top and Trim, in Berwynn Illinois, was called on to handle the interior fabrication and upholstery, installing such touches as a tilt steering wheel, heat, air conditioning and a 10-disc CD changer. Other than the interior work and paint, all other fabrication was handled by the owner of this sweet machine, Dale Chapman Sr. With all the looks his ride was drawing, we’d say all that hard work was well-worth the effort.

  1. Which means, if I’m translating coectrrly, that we owe Ford’s execution to Soapy Smith? Well, I’ll be goddamned. There must’ve been more to the boy than ever met the eye. Right on, Soapster!
