Bill's Blown V6 '33 Ford

We spend a lot of time and car shows and cruises checking-out the cool rides and talking to the autoadix... We’re collecting some great articles for future editions of AutoAdix™ Magazine.

Bill's story was one of my favorites. This rare V6 '33 English Ford rips a 10.6 second 1/4 mile. Almost every facet of the car was customized and has some great history. You wouldn't know it but, this used to be a rag top, which is hard to see even up close. Nice work Bill.

The 371 sittin' on top of the V6 powerhouse was found in a school dumpster. The bus mechanic said these blowers aren’t really used anymore so, out the door it went. Bill couldn't locate a manifold to adapt, so he did what any crafty GearHead would do, he made his own.

 

He tells us that although he is a contractor by trade, and spent much of his life building toy’s like this in his spare time. Bill has certainly learned a lot of tricks. We understand he has a Woody sitting in his garage that’s just as fast.

 

 

In case you didn't catch it in the picture above,
Bill used a Red Bull can to house his boost gauge… seems appropriate.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Front to back, this '33 is truly a beast. We'll definitely visit Bill in the future and get some gear wrenchin' details about how he pieced this baby together.

Although born in Boston, I spent most of my life in Southern California. When growing-up, everything I did revolved around cars. My first car was a '64 Comet thanks to my Sister. Favorite cars owned: '66 Mustang and '69 Camaro. My first engine build was a Ford 289 in high-school, which powered my '66 Stang through a high 12-second pass in the 1/4. I designed the engine based on what I learned from lots of automotive mags. Current toys are late models including an '07 Mustang GT/CS and '03 Cobra. Future project expects to be a '69 Camaro or '69 Mach I pro-touring build.

Be sure to say hi, when you see me at an event!
