Original State of Vehicle / Current Status / Potential & Possibilities
When This Plymouth arrived it was so dismantled that we don’t have a single photograph of it that brought justice to the lines of this beautiful car. The owner of the 33 Coupe in the shop is doing a “few” modifications including an 1100 horsepower supercharged big block motor, 40″ of rear tires to put the power to the ground, so many modifications to the body that you’ll just have to stay posted and look at the photographs, and a complete custom leather interior to keep him in style as he aims this rocket ship down the road.
Mr. Phillips’ 1933 Plymouth Coupe arrived on Labor day 2009. When it arrived it was predominately a fiberglass car, with only part of the main tub being made out of steel. It is already a 100% metal car with the body work being predominately completed in old fashioned Hot Rod LEAD. It will truly be a one-off custom built and designed work of art. You will notice the metal work looking mostly custom/mostly new. With exception of the rear fenders and about 50% of the cab, the balance of the metal on this beast was fabricated on a brake, bead roller, hammer/Dolley, and an English wheel at this shop by the most skilled metal artisan in the country.
