5 Window Coupe
ZZ4 CRATE, COMPLETE FRAME-OFF, A/C, PW, PL, PB, TILT, 2700 MILES ON BUILT, FRESH
Who would have thought a Chevrolet would be part of the dare to be different school of thought? But that's exactly what this gorgeous 1933 Chevy 5-window coupe is: a fresh take on a familiar theme.
Given the relative rarity of a '33 Chevy, this one sure came together nicely. All the usual tricks are there, plus a few maybe you haven't seen before, and it's doubly cool simply because none of it was able to be ordered from a catalog like you can with a Ford. Billet grille insert? Make it yourself. Smooth hood? Hand fabricated. Shaved bumpers and smooth running boards? Figure it out. The bright yellow paint practically sizzles off the bodywork, and thanks to shaved handles and a monochromatic look, it'll never go out of style. The hand-painted pinstripes spell out 'Chevy' on the sides of the body, just to let onlookers know what they're seeing, but the overall look is sophisticated and very well integrated. Someone invested an awful lot of time making this car look this good, and they did it the hard way.
The completely custom interior is a bright surprise, featuring plum-colored tweed fabric, a deeply sculpted bucket seat, and a billet dash. The plum fabric against the yellow bodywork actually works extremely well, counteracting the dazzling exterior with an upscale and elegant interior that offers all the modern conveniences. A/C, power windows, a tilt column, and a thumping stereo system are all part of the package, and it is all packaged so neatly that it seems almost OEM. An array of VDO gauges were fitted into a custom billet gauge panel in the center of the dash, and glow with soft amber light that somehow looks like the face of a vintage radio from the '30s. Everything remains in like-new condition thanks to meticulous care, and it shows just 2907 miles since it was completed-enough to be sure it's fully sorted, but still fresh.
This is also one rod where a ZZ4 crate motor is a welcome sight: a Chevy in a Chevy. Judging from the engine bay, someone spent a lot of money on the chassis of this car, and the careful planning and expert workmanship shows in the details. The engine, of course, runs beautifully with a great hot rod rumble from the custom dual exhaust system. Extensively modified, the frame now offers upper and lower control arms up front and traditional leaf springs holding up the 9-inch rear, but you'll also notice the cool finned oil pans for both the engine and automatic transmission, as well as the attention to detail that ensured that every component was painted to match the bodywork. Thanks to some careful measuring, it also sits just right with a classic hot rod rake and a set of Weld Pro-Star wheels that truly stuff the big wheelwells.
Unusual and beautifully finished, this '33 Chevy is the rod for the guy who loves the '30s but is looking for something different. Call today!
