This 1933 Ford Sedan Delivery is a show-stealing hot rod built several years ago at a cost of neary $120k. Its stunning paint and bodywork features 9 different colors, 3-D graphics, and a beautifully detailed, hand-painted tribute to the legendary Big Daddy Ed Roth's '60s Rat Fink character. The eye-melting Atlas Green Blue paint is topped with black flames that are outlined in candy lime metallic, with subtle red and gold metalflake inside the flames. These are surrounded by beautiful white and ivory "real fire" flames that are expertly sprinkled with an irridescent candy blue metallic in areas that catch sunlight best.
The "Rat Trap" 3-D graphics and Rat Fink character are expertly painted, clear-coated, and are the highlights of the car that bring smiles to everyone who sees it. Additional features include remotely operated suicide doors, plus a power operated rear door. The level of detail, fit, finish, and striking colors are the hit of every show and cruise we've taken it to, with nearly everyone posing in front of or taking pictures with the car, and has led to both awards and a magazine photo shoot just in the past month.
Underneath the fiberglass body lies a drivetrain consisting of a built and cammed 400 SBC, aluminum intake, Holley 750 on top, headers, Flowmaster exhaust, and a new 4-core aluminum radiator with dual electric fans. All of that sits on top of a Mustang 2 front end. A crisp-shifting automatic transmission sits behind that, leading to a narrowed Ford 9" rear end housing 3.73 gears and supported by a 4-link rear suspension with coilover shocks. Brakes are discs in front and drums out back. There's also an undercar battery cut-off switch. The drivetrain is stone-cold reliable, starts every time, and can be driven anywhere.
Inside is a finished cabin in gray cloth, with an excellent-fitting contoured bench seat with center arm rest. A small hidden storage area behind the seats gives way to the finished "delivery" area in back, which has plenty of room for chairs, coolers, or luggage for those longer trips.
This car comes with power windows (all 3), cold air conditioning, a chrome I-Didit steering column, leather wheel, and custom air-brushed graphics on the passenger side of the dash to tie everything together. A full complement of VDO gauges keeps track of things, and all exterior lights and signals work as they should. Wheels are very high quality Colorado Custom billet wheels, 15x10 in back and 15x5 in front. Rear tires are Mickey Thompson Sportsmans with street treads.
Not only is this car stunning to look at, but it can be driven anywhere, anytime, even as a daily driver if one were so inclined. It has 16,000 well proven miles, and starts first time every time! This rod sounds stupid amazing and drives excellent.
There are speakers installed in the back but no stereo unit has ever been installed in the car.
With well over $25,000 in paint and body alone, this is truly a unique, show-quality, and reliable street rod that could even be re-purposed with cover-up graphics for your business, to draw both eyes and wallets into your circle of influence.
At 1/3 the cost of the build, you'll be hardpressed to find a street rod that attracts more attention, photo ops, and conversation for the money! MUST SELL.
