This Corvette-Powered ’33 Ford Custom Roadster Can Be Yours
Well boys and girls, we’re not playing in the sandbox anymore. This is one serious hot rod that probably falls under the category of “If you have to ask the price…”
Originally bought at the 2007 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction, this custom roadster has had less than 20 miles put on it since then, according to the seller.
The classic lines that defined the 1933 Ford Roadster are dramatically enhanced in the Coast to Coast fiberglass body used in this car. The show quality paint job and custom billet grille serves as reminders that little or no expenses was avoided in putting this roadster together.
Coast’s own chassis for the car is enhanced with a Kugel Komponents’s front suspension and a four-link rear suspension supporting a Ford 9-inch rear axle. Under the side-opening hood, you’ll find an an all-aluminum 345HP Chevrolet LS-1 V8 engine mated to the 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission. This modern combination is ideal for total reliability and all the power this ride will ever want for.
The high performance 4-wheel disc brakes show fully polished billet aluminum calipers, supporting Colorado Custom polished billet wheels, shod with Toyo high performance radials sized at 205/40ZR16 up front and 225/50R18s in back.
However, one drives the car from the inside, not the outside, so the quality of the interior appears to be impeccable. The custom fitted VDO gauges include a 120 mph speedometer, water temperature, oil pressure, fuel level and voltage gauges. The sculptured leather seats and finish panels demonstrate seamless quality and instantly show this to be a top notch build.
The eBay listing is active until July 8, so there’s time to investigate and get all the answers you need if you’re seriously considering this car. Bidding to date has only hit the $19K mark, indicating that the serious bidders haven’t found this gem yet. You can also check out the video below to see this ride taking care of business.
Located in Dallas, TX, you’ll certainly want to drop by for a look and test drive. If you can’t for some reason, consider having an independent inspection and report done. This is just good business sense and actually helps to protect both parties to the deal. Let’s just hope that you can put more than 20 miles on it over the next couple of years.
