Flawless… Laser-straight… and Amazing Flames by the legendary Pete "Hotdog" Finlin!
This is the perfect example of combining the styling and components of a traditional hot rod with modern technology and performance. It was the love of the Art Deco Era that begins with the swooping hand-made Dan Fink polished stainless steel show grill tucked between those curvaceous fenders and those 30’s gangster-style ‘suicide’ doors that inspired the owner to design and then consign the build of this incredible offering. The intention was to create a car that not only looked amazing, but would be a driver, with all the comfort of a modern vehicle, the look and feel of a hotrod, and blending old-school nostalgia with modern technology. The challenge was to bring together a timeless, yet dazzling, exterior with modern touches and a relaxing, nostalgic and functional interior. The result is a balanced, eye-popping street rod where the exterior flows timelessly into the interior with strict attention to every detail in fit, finish and function. All of this, combined with an upgraded port fuel injected GM Performance 350 RamJet engine and 700-R4/B&M transmission gets you a whopping 450 HP with an ‘amazing’ 26 MPG on pump-gas! This multiple award winning '33 Tudor captures the attention of judges and the public each and every time it is entered into an event. If going to car shows is your thing, then make room for the trophies… you’ll be spending a lot of time in the winner’s circle!
