1933 Plymouth PD 2 Door Sedan Description:

Nobody was really building ugly cars in 1933, but this gorgeous 1933 Plymouth PD 2-door sedan absolutely knocks it out of the park. An already unusual design, it's accented by a gorgeous color combination, a beautiful custom interior, just the right stance, and a smooth-running 350 V8 small block crate motor that's married to an overdrive transmission. Built just 7,782 miles ago, this is one of those modern hot rods that just draws a crowd without even trying very hard.
There are a few subtle body mods, but it'll take an expert to spot them all on this all steel Plymouth. The rest is pretty much the way the factory did it, from the flowing skirted fenders to the slightly raked back end, all adding up to a smooth, elegant street rod that stands out against the crowd of Ford's and Chevy's seen at every car show in America. The two-tone paint job, which marries a wonderfully vivid Brandywine finish with tuxedo black, makes the car look long and low. Using the body's belt moldings as a natural dividing point for the two contrasting colors, there are no pinstripes or graphics that get in the way, which means that the deep and lustrous finish does all the talking. And talk it does, because the paint is in very good condition, especially when you consider that it was applied in the 1990s. Makes you even more appreciative of the lack of pinstripes, and the vision the restorer had when he chose to forego their application, resulting in a streetrod that will never look dated. The tall, cascading grille steals the show up front, but it's joined by original-style headlights, chrome bumpers fore and aft, slick running boards, and a vinyl padding on the roof, so it has that timeless 1930s appeal. In back, they even kept the rear-mounted spare tire, which is beautifully encased inside a black continental cover, and framed by a pair of original taillights on painted and chromed stands.
The beige chamois vinyl interior was finished in 2011 and is nothing like what you'd expect, but definitely makes a dramatic statement inside this rod. A custom split-bench seat with super-soft surfaces is all-day comfortable and cool enough to be show-worthy all by itself, and the matching rear bench has plenty of room for two or even three of your friends in a pinch. The door panels mirror the luxurious upholstery and the slightly darker plush carpets anchor the interior so it all looks right. A custom dash inlaid with burled wood adds further sophistication and refinement inside, and it's currently full of white-faced, gold-rimmed VDO instruments that give it a no-nonsense look. There's also an Alpine AM/FM/CD/AUX stereo system in the overhead compartment that was integrated into the headliner, power windows, and a modern R134a A/C that blows cold, so this cabin is really a great place to spend some quality time. A black handle automatic shifter manages the automatic transmission below, and a leather wrapped LeCarra steering wheel rests atop an Ididit tilt column that adds a bit more room for the driver.
For power, this steel '33 uses a 350 cubic inch V8 crate engine rated at 300 horsepower that was installed in 2008 and is topped by an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor. Built with a slight cam inside and augmented with a Zoops pulley system, HEI ignition, and Ron Francis Wiring harness, it provides reliable power that won't let you down and is always easy to service. It's really dressed for show with plenty of polished and chromed components, and the accessories are tucked in tight to the block so they easily fit under the pointed hood. The engine is beautifully topped with an open-element air cleaner and bright Chevrolet valve covers, there's also a big Walker radiator and electric fan up front to keep it cool effortlessly. Also installed in '08, the transmission is a tough 700R4 4-speed automatic with a B&M torque convertor, and it spins a Ford 8-inch rear end with a highway-friendly 2.93 gear ratio. Ceramic coated shorty headers feed a dual Flowmaster exhaust and give it that purring old-school rod soundtrack. The suspension uses coilovers up front and leaf springs and shocks out back, and with the power steering and power front disc set-up, it's comfortable and familiar-feeling on the road. Chrome Wheelsmith Artillery wheels are a great choice, wearing 205/65/15s up front and 235/70/15s out back to complete the killer look.
