Lot #1567 - 1933 Ford 3 window coupe 3" chop 8" channel. Historical Hot Rod, this is an authentic early '60's feature Hot Rod. All Henry Ford steel, no fiberglass anywhere. All modifications were done in steel and lead. Documented history. This car is the real deal, not a clone or reproduction. The magazine "Hot Rod Customs of the '60's" featured this car on page 13. Built in 1960 by Ron Price of San Jose, California. First shown in February 1961 at the Oakland roadster show. Originally the car was green as seen in a picture at the Oakland roadster show in 1961. In the late '70's early '80's Ed "Big Daddy" Roth was commissioned to repaint the car in its current orange color and Roth at the same time did extensive pin striping. The car currently maintains this magnificent and historical paint and pin striping job. Ed "Big Daddy" Roth's signature is in the pin stripe flourish on the trunk lid. The coupe has all the original running gear that was all refreshed in early 2000's. The car is powered by a built 1960 Cadillac 390cid with 3 Stromberg's on top and a Lasalle 3-speed transmission gets the horsepower to the rear wheels through a closed Ford rear end. The previous owner purchased the car in the 1980's and kept it as a non-driving show car in a private collection in Malibu. The car was loaned to the Peterson automotive museum in January 2007 where it was displayed in the Peterson's Retrospective of Ed "Big Daddy" Roth's career. Leslie Kendall, curator of the Peterson automotive museum, has researched and written the following description on the display board which is included with the car. For the Roth Retrospective display at the Peterson museum: "Built during the early 1960's by Ron Price of San Jose, California. This 3-window coupe was chopped 3" and channeled 8" for an ultra low silhouette."
