Getting Faded With A 1933 Ford 3-Window Coupe From NSRA Mid-America

Utilizing color to catch the eye, this hot rod won the acclaim from not only spectators but also the judges at the 2015 Mid-America Street Rod Nationals. Held at the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds in Springfield, Missouri, we spoke with owner Rick Schmeski and his beautiful 1933 Ford three-window Coupe.

Venturing all the way from Mountain Home, Arizona, Schmeski brought his Ford coupe with confidence to the show. Built on a custom frame fabricated by Mountain Home Street Rods, this Coupe also has a chromed out TCI suspension kit with rack and pinion.

A fresh LS 427 cubic-inch V8 engine rests comfortably under the hood, mated with a General Motors 4L60E four-speed automatic transmission. To note, the beastly LS 427 has an estimated power output of 653 horsepower.

The brown leather interior even carries into the the trunk.

A John’s 9-inch rear end with 3.50 gearing and Posi-traction keeps this Ford grounded in the back. For the wheel setup, Schmeski rolled with a set of Billet Specialties wheels with 17-inch fronts and 18×10-inch rears.

Pulling away from the internals, let’s talk about the immaculate and curvaceous exterior. According to Schmeski, the Ford’s roof is chopped 3-1/2 inches and is painted PPG Brandy Wine and Black with flames painted by Britt at Mountain Home Street Rods.

The panels inside the Ford coupe are all custom, made from aluminum and leather and customized by RPL Customs in Rowlett, Texas. Too clean and oh so mean, this Ford Coupe won the “Outstanding Use of Color” award at the 2015 Mid-America Street Rod Nationals.

We can’t argue with the critics because this Ford Coupe has the freshest paint job on the block, pulling off a seamless two-tone blend that other automotive paint shops should take notes on. What are your thoughts? Let us know below what you think of this sexy Ford Coupe.
