“Pretty Penny”

“Pretty Penny” 1933 Roadster
Owner: Harold Champman
Location: Andice, Texas

All Steel Henry Ford body that has been repaired with hand-made panels from CHRA as well as some Steve’s Auto Restoration pieces.
This car was painstakingly fit and gapped. The fenders on all four corners required being cut extensively to be made the same side to side and to please the eye more. The hood is set up on with hood bars running from the grille shell to the cowl. The 33 hood louvers have been moved forward, the new door and trunk skins we built have more positive crown than stock giving it a great look. Greening auto headlights styled after early Ford commercial pieces.
The top-
is comprised of custom hand-made pieces and some stock pieces that are modified to give this elegant car it’s bad attitude look.
