Default My 1933 Ford Five Window Coupe

This is the way it used to be in 1954. All steel and very little cutting. Mine was the rumble seat version and cycle fenders were the hot setup. As you can see, I've hardly changed in fifty-eight years.

A cool dude, indeed. Parked there on "Memory Lane". Did you do the work yourself? Thanks for sharing those.

Nice memory picks. Can't believe the claxons!
Why was the car called 5 windows?

Five windows and one windshield. This is a common way of describing the glass in American cars.

...and I had a princeton cut too in them days but couldn't support one now (lol).

Very neat times and the fun we had in the '50s .... A&W drive-in, Chesterfields, white T-shirts, white socks & brown penny loafers.

Mine was a '47 Plymouth business coupe in '55, no hot rodding but it was a pretty slick car, I wish I had some pictures of it.
