1933 Dodge Sedan Delivery | Dickie and Sally Wolfe Berryville, VA
After building several Mopar muscle cars the Wolfes decided to step back in time and build a vintage Mopar.

Inside the delivery smells better than a new baseball glove thanks to the fine leather upholstery. Under the hood the 318 is dressed in 340 style. A push button 904 tranny handles the power at the touch of a finger. Even the paint color is from a Chrysler. Billet Specialties wheels are wrapped with Goodyear rubber.

1932 Ford Sedan | David Floyd, Hokes Bluff, ALGood as gold, this Deuce Tudor has just the right look for a timeless traditional hot rod.

1932 Ford Roadster | Tommy & Claudene Vlah, Chesterland, OHNothing is more traditional than a Deuce roadster and a flathead V-8; after all, they were made for each other.

Pete & Jake hairpins locate the dropped axle while ladder bars and a Model A spring suspend the rear. The engine is a 1946, 276 cu. in. Flattie topped with a McCulloch supercharger.

The guys at Gear Headz Hot Rodz nailed this one.
