Up for sale is my 1933 Ford pickup truck. The cab, bed, and grille shell are all original 33 Ford steel. They are all very solid with any/all rust removed and patched. It has less than perfect bodywork but is very presentable as a "driver quality" hotrod. It has pitting and minor dents here and there but is overall pretty good. The cab has been chopped approx. 6 inches and channeled 4 inches. The bed has had the floor raised to accommodate the rear kick up in the frame. The grille has been sectioned 2 inches at the bottom to allow for better ground clearance. The front fenders were made from a 36 Ford spare tire cover. They are mounted to the front brake backing plates and turn with the wheels. It is painted with a single stage flat burgundy enamel. The belt lines and firewall are painted with single stage satin black. The suspension/frame and wheels have all been painted with single stage satin black as well. The frame is original Ford Model A from the cowl forwards. From the cowl back is 2x3 box tubing. The frame is very strong and well built. Front suspension is a SuperBell 4" dropped I-beam axle with a Posies spring. Original 40 Ford split wishbones hold it in place. Hotrod style tube shocks hung from Ford F1 style shock/headlight mounts. 40 Ford front brakes with fresh wheel cylinders, springs, shoes, etc. Cross steer set up with a vega box. So-cal steering dampener. Handles very smooth. The front wheels are original 16" Ford spoke wheels with 600-16 bias ply tires. The rear wheels are original 18" Ford spoke wheels with 600-18 bias ply tires. All tires have tubes and are balanced well. Original 32 Ford truck center caps have been painted to match the wheels. Engine is a GM performance crate 350 small block chevy. It's the "Mexican" block which supposedly has the higher nickel content in the casting. RV cam. Vintage Offenhauser 3x2 intake with 3 freshly rebuilt Holley 94 2bbl carbs. They work off an Eelco progressive linkage. They are tuned very well and fire right up. Idles very smooth. There is an Edelbrock mechanical choke cable that runs to the dash but I have literally never used it. Homemade lakes style headers with internal baffles. They have been wrapped so you won't burn your leg off if you accidentally lean up against them after it's been running. Original Delco 12v generator was recently rebuilt and charges the new sealed battery located under the bed. The engine has 2317 trouble free miles since completion. Transmission is a 350Turbo. Shifts very smooth. New Lokar buttonless shifter with an old glass door knob for the shift knob. Rearend is an early GM g-body rear axle. It's located by a pair of hairpin radius rods and a panhard bar. A Posies 40 Ford rear spring gives it a smooth ride. The rear brakes are good. It has a lower gear ratio so very smooth/low RPM on the highway. Still plenty of get-up-and-go off the line. Engine is cooled by a 65 Mustang radiator that is copper/brass construction and is new. 12 gallon poly gas tank is in the rear of the bed. The truck has been professionally wired with a Speedway 12 circuit wiring harness. all wiring is hidden or loomed with a factory style loom so you don't see any of it. All running lights, headlights, turn signals, hazards, and brights work as they should. New Equus black face gauges. Water temp, oil pressure, speedo and odometer work. There is a working cigarette lighter in the dash for a cell phone charger. Original Guide 682c headlights. 33 Ford truck tail lights. New black automotive grade carpet was installed. Seat bottoms are from a 60's VW bug. The seat back is custom made for the truck. Very comfortable to ride in. I am 6'3" tall and fit okay. Steering wheel is a 13" mooneyes 3 spoke. Lokar throttle and brake pedals. Door handles work as they should. Working cowl vent and pop-out windshield with automotive safety glass, not plexi or lexan. There is a modified hand operated windshield wiper on the drivers side if you get caught in the rain. The bed sports a real wood bed floor and oak side rails that have been stained/finished very well.
