Pick of the Day: 1933 Dodge street rod bristling with style and Hemi power

The classic sedan looks beautifully customized for drivability and performance

-

“Rarely do you find a custom Mopar hot rod that also has Mopar power,” says the Lavergne, Tennessee, dealer adverting the Pick of the Day on ClassicCars.com.  “So this 1933 Dodge sedan street rod doesn’t just impress with its sleek paint and custom interior. We also love it for the big dual-quad 392 Hemi under the hood.”

While small-block Chevy V8s are the heart and soul of classic street rodding, it is always refreshing to see a properly done custom that has an engine not only from the correct brand but a special one at that.  Hey, it’s got a Hemi!

“This 392 Hemi V8 motor (is) built with dual Edelbrock four-barrel carburetors,” the ad notes. “And headers add power and rumble as they feed the dual exhaust.”

Aside from the muscle, this Dodge looks beautifully done from top to bottom, with a chopped roofline, suicide doors and a great stance.

“Black and burgundy are both terrific vintage colors to have on a classic, but the level of shine here tells you this is a far-more modern machine,” the dealer says. “Of course, the chopped top is also going to instantly signal solid investments here. And the additions to this one are done in thoughtful ways.

“For example, the silver dividing line for the two-tone also highlights the lines in the classic steel body, and the fiberglass fenders are a great way to make sure those American Racing Torq Thrust wheels fit in the body. The deleted bumpers, forward-leaning stance, and dual exhaust tips are part of this custom’s sporty style.

“But the detail that really lets us all know this is a powerful machine is the set of artful cutouts in the hood sides that give everyone a peer at the Hemi power.”

For drivability, the Dodge features a Torqueflite automatic transmission, Mustang II-style front end, coilover suspension, power steering and front disc brakes. 

The Dodge’s interior looks inviting and has a vintage look combined with modern amenities.

“The full setup is done in gray and burgundy, and so it feels thoughtful against the exterior paint and stripe,” the ad says. “The button-top diamond pattern on the bench is a tasteful touch, and it looks especially good with matching door panels.

“A classic sedan means plenty of room to spread out, and the driver is particularly comfortable. The banjo-style steering wheel is on a tilt column, there are upgraded billet pedals, and the dash is dominated by crisp gauges with a large speedo and tach.”

The Dodge sedan is a drive-anywhere collector car, the seller advises, and would be a sure hit at any car show, though especially a Mopar gathering.

The asking price for this tasteful street rod is $52,995.

  1. Beautifully done, and I totally agree, the only choice for this car was Mopar Poer. I’m one of those guys that wants a Ford engine in a Ford, a Chevy in a Chevy, etc. Just seems like the right thing to do.
