Real nice FFR 33

I've heard a bunch of stories about this car, but yesterday was the first time I saw it in person. Impressive build

Wow, probably the most traditional looking '33 I've seen yet!

Wow! for sure. That build makes me feel so inadequate. Sure would like to know more about the louvered side panels.

They are steel, he got louvered sheets and then custom shaped them to fit the opening. There is a metal track they fit to that conforms to the shape of the fender - the fender is not attached to the side panel.

I figured they were steel or aluminum. Love 'em. That's way beyond my skill level.

The owner is quite the 33-34 Ford collector! Ed and I became friends through this forum a few years back when he began the build. He has a collection of 33-34's that I would die for! He was fortunate to get this local small body shop to tackle his project and it is Fantastic!!!!!! You have to look at the pics! They used fenders from another source "that actually are straight" and they installed a roll pan and bumpers like the original and it goes on and on. Maybe I can get him to chime in with pics of his other beauties!

I had started a build thread for Ed a while ago. I've updated it with some more build pictures so you can see all the detail that went into this beauty!
