Chopped 1933 Ford C400 Vicky Convertible Sedan - Street Roddish"!!

Everyone has a style of street rod of this era that's their favorite.

I like the "Elegant" style with a little "Panash" and a bit "Swoopy". At least that's how I see them.

I build my cars the way they would look if I drove a 1 to 1.

The top is hand made with around 20 pieces to build.

The side window sections are hand made with 11 pieces per side, and the cowl section has been lengthed a bit over an i/8 inch to give it a bit of that "Swoopy" look I love so much.

And "YES" I like this style of wheel Big Smile.

Not sure many would like this style but I do appreciate you lookin' in Thumbs Up.

Hi, Dave! Good to see your vision and awesome execution once again. The whole thing really flows. Excellent work and quality photos as usual. The stance, colors and wheel choice is great. The large headlamps really work with this one. Thanks for posting! Thumbs Up

Dave....that is one elegant and tasty street rod!!!   Great styling mods, excellent craftsmanship, and I like the chrome accent on the beltline molding too.  Big congrats!  TIM

Hey ole buddy Dave. Great job on this one. The color and stance are perfect, but you know me, I'm a triditionalist and don't like any of these new style wheels, but that's just me.
