Flathead with 6 carbs 1933 ford Pickup scallop paint.
Up for auction is my 1933 Ford pickup. The truck has been featured in many magazines including Rod & Custom, StreetTrucks and Hometown Hot Rod, with pictures in numerous magazines as well as Rod & Custom calender. This truck has also won numerous awards at car shows across the country There is a significant amount of work done to this truck and I will do my best to list it all.
The body is an original steel body that has been chopped 6 inches, channeled 5 inches and the bed has been shortened 2 feet to obtain the look of a period correct traditional hot rod. It is painted in Hot Rod Flatz Red Oxide with gloss cream firewall and scallops. There is pinstripping throughout the truck including the louvered tailgate.
The engine is a 1952 Flathead with a 4″ crank that has been bored and stroked to a 296ci. Edelbrock heads, big cam, electronic ignition, Offy triple carb intake with splitters to house the 6 94 carbs. No expense was spared when building this motor, well into the 200 horsepower range. Behind the engine is a chevy T5 transmission using a transmission adapter to connect the two. This thing sounds incredible running, it is a flathead on steroids.
The chassis is custom built using 2×4 rectangular tubing. It is Z’d 4 inches up front and Z’d 14 inches in the rear. The front is suicide using a drilled 41 ford front axle and 41 ford wishbones. A custom built ladder bar rear suspension supports a 41 ford rear end. The wheels are 35 ford wires with firestone tires front and rear.
The interior is bare bones. Mexican blanket seat, 1939 ford dash (signed by Jimmy Shine from SoCal Speedshop), skull shifter and wrenches for pedals and window cranks.
This is a turnkey hot rod that you can jump in and drive anywhere. I have driven this truck hundred of miles to car shows and is very dependable.
