Today’s car is a 1933 Ford Model 5 Window Coupe Hot Rod owned by Stanley Bauer. It is one of the most unique custom street rod I have ever seen. It was originally created in 1958 by Wescott. It was flawlessly restored, in 2012, by legendary Hot Rod builder Roy Brizio whose shop is located in the San Francisco, CA area.
It is finished in a Warm Dark Green metallic with a Light Beige leather interior, It is powered by a estimated 300 hp, 324 cu in, 5.3 liter V8, with a Rochester 4GC Quadra-Jet 4-bbl carburetor. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a Tremec 5-speed manual transmission and delivering it to a 9-inch Ford rear axle. It is sitting on a custom Brizio chassis. Slowing this beauty down are performance brakes all around along along with a performance suspension. This all metal body looks have been sectioned about 4 to 6 inches giving the car an European look. It has won awards at the 2012 Grand National Roadster show, and both on the cover and a feature article in the September 2012 issue of Rod & Custom magazine.
This meticulously prepared Hot Rod can be used for many things, local and national competitive car shows, Cars and Coffee events, a spirited drives through the canyons, a cruise down by the beach, or simply a great piece of garage decor. Thanks for riding along. Frank
