That is why, when I tell you that a car is as clean, well-constructed, and reliable as this one is, I hope you take the time to read the listing in full, look at the 100 extra-large photos I provide, and then call me to BUY IT NOW before someone else does!

This is a stunning example of a 1933 Ford Vicky, and it has been built with the best components to be the proven and reliable long-haul capable show car you see below! DON’T MISS OUT!
This 1933 Ford Victoria was built in 2002 and has been a consistent show winner and proven long-hauler since completion!
With just over 13,000 since new, the car has been driven less than 1,200 miles a year, but has been on three Hot Rod Power tour legs, an AmeriCruise, and traversed Florida plenty of times on “Local” cruises!
The stunning Cadillac Pearl White finish is the first thing that catches your eye, and it really sparkles in the sunlight. The pearl is also very good at catching the glow of streetlamps on those evening cruises, and the car looks fantastic rolling down the road, or sitting still.
The finish on the car is clean, slick, shiny, and wet, thanks to a lifetime of proper detailing and indoor storage.
It still shows like new, and has less than a handful or so truly minor marks on the whole painted surface to mention. I am referring to tiny stone chips, hairline scuffs, and other normal-use marks you’ll see on any car that has ever been driven.
There are NO dents, NO large chips, NO big scratches, and NO signs of prior repair on the painted surface of the car, and it really looks amazing up close, AND far away.
Hand applied pin striping accentuates the lines of the car, and it is on top of the clear, so you can remove it if you don’t like it.
The hood sides remove easily via DSUZ fittings, if you like that “open-air” look, or just want to keep the engine bay clean.
Hood top releases from the inside, and functions perfectly.
The DOWN’S INDUSTRIES body is one of the best Vicky bodies you can get, and have always had a sterling reputation when it comes to build quality, reinforcement, fit, and finish.
This car is no exception, as the doors line up wonderfully, have easy to actuate bear claw safety clasps, and pop open with ease by hitting the button on the keyless remote entry system.
Doors close with a solid thud, thanks to the reinforced backing, and the sag-free hangers are just another testament to the DOWN’S level of quality.
It has a 3” chop done directly in the mold process, and it looks wicked just sitting still.
The clean lines of the car are accentuated by the vintage style chrome tri-bar headlamps, chrome lollipop mirrors on each door, chrome push bumpers up front, chrome mini turn signals up front, and a stainless steel grill insert.
Dual chrome exhaust tips peak out from under the back of the car, and vintage style teardrop tail lamps look great, and are stuffed with modern LED lights that really show up in the dark!
A billet aluminum fuel cap, billet plate frame with integral light, and stainless wiper blade arm complete the brightwork on this machine, and all of it shows wonderfully!
This Street Rod rolls on show polished WELD 8-hole rims with spinner center caps that look fantastic, and show no damage or issues.
Rear tires are FIRESTONE FIREHAWK INDY 500 logo tires size P386/60R15, while fronts are FALKEN ZIEX radials size P195/60R15. All of the tires are damage free, and have over 85% of the useable tread life remaining.
Inside, no expense was spared in creating a show winning interior done in the finest materials available for long term wear and longevity.
Luxurious crème leather covers practically everything inside the cabin, from the kick panels to the headliner, and doors to the seats. It is all in exceptional condition, and shows no tears, seam pulls, or staining. There is one small mark on the driver side door handle where the prior owners ring kept rubbing against the material, but he touched it up, and it shows just fine.
Everything is treated to an intricately stitched pattern that flows throughout the cabin, and everyone that sees it just has to touch it, because it looks so inviting.
Overhead, the custom console houses the PIONEER AM/FM/CD/MP ready stereo head unit, which sends power to the 4 hidden speakers in the cab. It sounds great, and makes everything from Bach to Rock that much better!
Aircraft lighted switchgear overhead handles parking, headlamp, and interior lights, in addition to the power windows.
Carpeting is automotive grade, and super plush, and it shows great, with no staining or discoloration, and a rich, full mat. It is banded, and trimmed on the sides with billet sill plates.
Floor mounted hi-beam switch works as it should, as does the hidden floor mounted master power switch.
LOKAR supplied the polished gas and brake pedals with rubber inserts.
A GM tilt steering column was painted to match, and installed with a billet drop. It has billet turn signal, tilt, and hazard levers, and functions as it should. The column gets topped off by a LeCARRA billet steering wheel that has been wrapped in matching crème leather.
Billet door handle pulls and bear claw turns match the billet hood release arm and billet fuel pump switch under the dash.
A full set of functional DAKOTA digital gauges resides in the leather wrapped dash, and provides odometer, speedometer, tach, fuel, amp, oil pressure, temp, and more. The gauges all appear to be accurate and functioning correctly.
Vintage supplied the climate/AIR CONDITIONING system for the car, and it works great, with three individual billet vents, and an in-dash control panel.
The rear seat lifts to reveal the battery, and a small storage area for cleaning goods and show towels.
Driver side bucket seat is power activated for fore/aft movement, while the passenger side is manually adjusted. Both seats have functional power lumbar support buttons to help you get comfy on those long cruises.
Once you are comfortable, it’s time to turn the key, and that is when the real fun begins with this Street Rod!
The motor in this car was built from the ground up to have plenty of power for turning heads and chirping tire, but with long-term reliability and road readiness.
The result is this 383ci GM Stroker motor that was specifically built for this vehicle with the following specifications according to the prior owner:
- 4 bolt main 350
- deck block – align bore – magna-fluxed
- Competition cam (CS28SB-6)
- File fit rings
- Performance runners
- Competition pistons
- Fluid damper
- 7/16 pro mag rockers 1.5
- Performance oil pan
- Lightweight timing cover
- Chromoly push rods
- Edelbrock aluminum heads
The motor was installed and mated to a completely rebuilt TH350 transmission with a LEVEL II treatment consisting of:
- All new lip seals
- All new gaskets
- All new Teflon rings
- New filter
- New steels
- New bushings
- Raybestos clutch discs
- New sprags
- New 4140 hardened intermediate race
- Kolene freezed input shaft and drum
- Raybestos Performance Band
According to the prior owner, the tranny build was selected because it has a nice crisp shift under normal use, but at wide open throttle it will put you in your seat.
The car is geared for rural road and in-town driving right now, and it is happiest at around 65mph. You can go faster, but a gear change would be optimal for full time highway use. I cruised it for about 30 miles doing 70 on the freeway with no problem.
The car starts with a turn of the key, has a nice, loping idle, and is ready to go when you are.
Snick it into gear, and point it in the direction you want to go, because when you mash the gas pedal, you WILL be heading that way in a hurry!
The car has gobs of power, thanks to the combination of a light weight car with a monster motor, and it will lay rubber, turn heads, scare old ladies, and thrill young ones every time you fire it up!
It rumbles really nicely thanks to the 3” exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers.
If you keep your foot out of it, the car is a pretty mild-mannered machine, and you can cruise it around all day looking for unsuspecting people to challenge to a heads-up race!
Crack the throttle and the car responds, kicking in a ton of power and torque to get you to your destination in a hurry!
The chassis on the car is a combination of Speedway, DOWN’S Industries, and Chassis Engineering components, and they were tied together to create a reliable, easy riding, and period correct undercarriage for the car.
Speedway provided the rails, which were holed out to save weight, and they also took care of the leaf springs out back, the four bar set up upfront, and the tube front end with a Spring-Behind 4” drop kit.
Chassis Engineering supplied the CAL-TRAC bars and poly bushings.
Speedway also supplied the 4-wheel disc brake system, which stops the car on a dime, and does it without any excess fade, modulation or pulling.
The underside is clean and painted black, and as you can see from the photos, it wouldn’t take more than a few hours of cleaning and touch up paint to make it look like new again.
All of the lines, hoses, cables are in great working order, and the cars wiring is solid and well-laid out from the original build. There is still room in the fuse block for more items should you wish to add some.
A chrome engine shroud, oil pan, and trans pan brighten up the underside, while the top of the motor gets the full billet, chrome, and polished aluminum treatment too.
At the rear of the frame, a battery tender hookup with positive and negative cap covered leads sits next to a waterproof button that will put down the driver side window, should you ever have a bad remote battery.
You get two remotes with the car, and they both work to open the doors with the push of a button.
The car rides very nicely, and handles like an extension of your arms. No a lot of slop or play like you see in most cars, and everything feels tight and sure.
Overall, this Street Rod is the perfect example of what happens when you combine the best components, skilled paint and interior craftsman, and a real Street Machine powertrain together in one package.
If you want one the coolest Rod’s around… this is your car!
It comes with one key, two functional remotes, and a free and clear title as a 1933 FORD.
