This is a very nice 33 Ford three window coupe. But, this is really about the engine. This is a once in lifetime chance to own an engine that is very rare and special. The engine was assembled by ex AA/FD builder, tuner and driver Joe Arena. He built the engine to be very drivable on the street. I have many documents from the build. The car is very solid and goes straight when you push hard on the go pedal.

As you can tell a lot of money was spent building this car. I honestly believe you cannot find one of these blocks for sale. I haven't found one. To build this engine today if you found a block would in the 50k ball park. Joe started to built the car about 10 years ago and finished about 7 years ago and just hasn't driven it much. He's now pushing 80 years old so you can understand that. I bought the car this summer because of I always wanted a Hemi and I know Joe and how he builds things. I'm getting kind of old myself so I think I will pass it on. This would be a great engine for a Rydler car.
I beg you to come an look at the car if you can. I have had a problem with a crazy buyer who had buyer remorse on another car. I am and will be as honest as possible on the details of the car. But. come and look at it or send someone. This car is very fast so I can not just let anybody drive it, but I would be happy to give you a ride. The car is located in Santa Fe Texas about 30 miles south of Houston. Not that far from Hobby airport.
I added the vinyl letters and if you don't like them I will remove them for the buyer. They come off very easily.
I will try to answer any remaining questions. I will not respond to questions asking how much or what the reserve is. The best way to find the reserve is to bid.
I hate to say the following but because of past experience on ebay I must. If you have less than 5 feedbacks I will disallow your bid unless you contact me first. Please do not mess up the action because you just don't have anything else to do. If you when the bid I must have 500 in my paypal within 2 days or I will file with e bay.
