Default Craig's List '33 cpe bought

hi; Had some money around and started looking at Craigs List, now I'm broke with a good Summer driver. '33 5w.. OLD hot rod. Originally a 4 cyl basic cpe by serial no. Now an old hot rod with a Canadian C7RA [46-48] eng and a '39 tranny. Still mechanical brakes! Black primer and all the steel parts/Grill are original to the car. 12Volt generator [another post]. The big improvement is a 'vega' steering box and cross steering. Drives nice at 60mph. Radial tires on 16" rims. Yes, I paid a lot for me, but there were 10 guys behind me! Here you go barners Newc

Nice score Dale!! Glad you got it. I personally think the 33 is visually the most pleasing of the early Fords. I feel lucky to own one. Enjoy the heck out of it!

Great looking project. It is kinda hard to practice your negotiating skills when there is a line of 10 prospective buyers behind you. Enjoy your new project.

Doesn't look like a project to me. It looks like a real Driver! One you can enjoy just like it is.

Very nice. Very driveable. It looks a lot like mine, but I suspect the body is a bit better and the grille looks a lot better (than mine).

IMO, a set of juice brakes and you're good to go. No other changes needed.
