This is the sixth in a 10-day countdown to Barrett-Jackson’s annual Palm Beach auction
Lot 695.1 is an all-steel bodied 1933 Ford custom coupe professionally built and completed in 2009.
Features include a 3.5-inch chop with matching custom glass, smoothed running boards with integrated full wraparound rear apron, custom engine bay side panels, side-lift hood, shaved trim and electronically actuated suicide doors, custom brushed steel grille, billet mirrors, hidden LED taillights and more.
Under the hood is a Pro-Built 383 stroker small-block V8 with fuel injection that looks like Weber stacks. The gearbox is a 700R4 automatic transmission.
The suspension is a custom, fully independent setup at all four corners with coilover shocks and 4-wheel disc brakes. The car rides on Boyd Coddington wheels, 17 inches in front and 18s at the rear.
The interior is covered in custom leather, including the seats, door panels, headliner and even the bindings for the square-weave carpeting.
Other features include air conditioning, VDO instrumentation, leather-trimmed billet steering wheel, tilt column, custom audio system, electronically actuated side-exiting dump tubes for the exhaust system, power windows and hand-done pinstriping.
The car is part of the John Staluppi Cars of Dreams Collection.
