This impeccably built 1933 Ford Coupe/Roadster from Factory Five Racing is all about the custom details. At first glance, yes, it's an awesome and highly desirable body style with slick Midnight Blue paint. Then you dig a little deeper and see all the little tricks and upgrades that went into the comprehensive build, including a top that comes off, a sporty leather interior, a custom built Boss 351 V8 crate engine that's been built-up into 427 cubic inches, and all the creature comforts you could ever want in a streetrod. A brilliant show car with only 12,807 miles on the build, this Ford would cost considerably more to replicate that what we're asking. So, before you embark on the long and expensive journey of creating a hotrod as stunning as this, consider this turn-key pink-slip hunter instead.

The body is fiberglass from legendary Factory Five Racing, and that's not at all a demerit on high-quality rods like this because not only are the materials incredibly thick, durable and reinforced with extra supports. The resulting custom look of this 3-window coupe could almost never be matched by steel, yet the spirit and feel is still all high-quality Ford. The build incorporates suicide doors, a longer body, and a chopped top, so this car has a cool rake to it that matches what rodders have been doing since the '40s. Most of the original '33 design protrusions have been shaved, including the fenders, bumpers, hinges, cowl lights, and door handles, so it looks incredibly sleek. And speaking of paint and body, the Midnight Blue Metallic shade was borrowed from a 2013 BMW B38, and the basecoat/clearcoat application is a strong driver-quality finish that look really good in person. After almost 13K miles on the build, it's no longer perfect and there are some imperfections that can be found upon closer examination, but there's not a warm-blooded creature on Earth that won't turn their heads when this beauty is bombing down Main Street. Up front, there's a beautiful chrome Vee'd waterfall grille along with traditional King Bee style headlights at the flanks, so it has a very traditional look despite all the custom work that went into the build. My goodness, this '33 Ford was really well-executed.

Outfitted in black leather and top-of-the-line components throughout, the interior is comfortable and inviting, and brings a high-end modern level of fit and finish to this streetrod that we don't often come across. Low-back bucket seats make the most of the coupe's interior space, leaving it comfortable even for guys over six feet tall, and the sculpted contours are good for long road trips. Black leather has also been used on the custom door panels, headliner, and the armrest on that awesome custom center console, with professional stitchwork working with all the accented billet hardware to further the killer look inside. All of the components inside were installed during the build, and before anything was affixed in place the entire cabin was insulated. Power windows and keyless entry is included, as well as a tilt steering column to help you get comfortable behind the leather-wrapped billet Factory Five steering wheel. AutoMeter digital/analog gauges have been nestled into the center of the dash inside a brushed aluminum bezel, along with a full set of vents for the cleverly integrated modern HVAC system from Vintage Air (needs servicing for optimum cooling). That aforementioned center console is loaded, headlined by a billet short-shifter for the 6-speed manual transmission, a host of auxiliary switches, billet cup holders, and a Sony multi-media double-din stereo system that includes a back-up camera. The trunk opens with the flick of a switch, revealing a fully upholstered cargo bay that's full of components, and when the top comes off, the party real starts for this '33 Ford.

Delivering on the car's looks is a custom built, Ford Performance Crate 351 V8 Boss block that's been built up into a monster 427 V8. It's a powerful X-head, iron block that's been internally balanced and features a 1-piece rear main seal, aluminum heads, a rear sump, a giant 7.0L 427 hydraulic cam, and is rated at 450HP and 520 lb-ft of torque. Topped by a Holley Electronic Fuel-Injection system and a performance intake manifold, it fires up with ease thanks to an HEI ignition system and pulls big power up and down the throttle. With plenty of Cobra 427 dress-up gear inside the engine bay, it's got the right hot rod look without affecting functionality, and because it's only been driven 12,807 miles since it was built in 2015 it remains bright and clean. Wiring and plumbing is thoughtfully done, and block-hugging headers dump into a beautifully fabricated exhaust system with heat-shield wrapped mufflers that sounds fantastic. It rides on an independent front end with double A-arms, power 4-wheel disc brakes, and electric power steering up front, and an 8.8-i
