Known as, “Sly” -This magnificent 1933 Ford Vicky 2-dr Sedan Custom was selected as a “Great 8 Finalist” for the Ridler Award. It’s loaded with custom features throughout and powered by a fuel injected 572 V8 w/ 620HP. Bob and Jean Walrich of South Lyon, MI had a vision to build one of the finest 33 Ford’s in the world and compete for the prestigious Ridler Award. They teamed up with long term friend Terry Wayne to lead the project with an open checkbook. The build took place over a six year period. Hundreds of thousands of dollars were invested to crate this one-of-a-kind Hot Rod nick named “Sly”.

The build started in 2004 with a Downs Body which was named a “33 Ford Laid Back Victoria Chopped 3” w/ Suicide Doors”. A Downs Chassis and some other items were ordered with the body which totaled $ 41,525.00. Once everything arrived it was sent to Reds Frame Shop in Howell, MI to get the body and frame work which totaled $ 11,808.64. From there it was sent to Automotive Metal Shop in Kimball, MI for fabrication and metal work which totaled $ 31,631.44. From there it was sent to R. Creations in Howell, MI for body prep, paint and final assembly work which totaled $ 33,166.52. A total of $ 118,131.69 was invested in just getting the frame, body, paint and some trim completed. Well over an additional $ 100,000.00 was invested in completing the vehicle. This was truly a quarter of a million dollar project when it was all said and done in 2010. Some of the receipts and cost sheets are included. Today, this build would be estimated around $ 300,000.00.

The exterior of this Hot Rod is like a rolling piece of art work with its gorgeous bodylines and rich finish. During the build process a metal hood and metal engine side covers were fabricated to fit perfectly with the chrome front grille. The body, hood, engine side covers, front fenders, doors, running boards and rear fenders are laser straight. The entire body was painted in a deep black finish that is truly remarkable. The paint was recently detailed to a high show quality shine. The hood sports a custom hood scoop with chrome mesh grill matches the front grill. The hood pivots on custom hinges and opens smoothly. The engine side covers have four chrome vents with chrome mesh inserts and a chrome strip that also match the front grill. The side exhaust chrome tips with chrome mesh inserts were integrated through the running boards. Some other exterior custom features include all new tinted glass, retro dual mirrors, Harley Davidson headlights, fuel filler, LED tail lights and electronic vanishing license plate. The Vicky sit’s on Billet Specialties SLG polished staggered wheels. The wheels are wrapped with Toyo Proxes T1-S tires that are 225-45-17 on the front and 255-45-18 on the rear. This Hot Rod is a serious head turner!

The interior of this Hot Rod is absolutely stunning with it’s a one-of-a-kind design. It’s surprisingly spacious and comfortable. The matching two front and two rear bucket seats make it very unique. Countless hours were spent had making the dash. The entire cabin was upholstered with soft tan leather and suede. The center of the suede headliner was raised from front to back with the power door locks switches in the front. The doors are opened with door knobs or with door poppers that are controlled with a remote. The top and bottom of the dash was wrapped with leather. The dash fascia was wrapped with suede. The dash is home to the Classic Instruments gauge cluster and custom vents. The headliner and doors match the full length waterfall center console that was wrapped with leather. The console is home to the Eclipse AVN5435 head unit, Vintage Air Conditioning controls, shift indicator, Lokar shifter, power window switches, rear license plate switch and four courtesy lights. The Eclipse AVN5435 head unit is a CD/DVD receiver with 6.5” screen and built in navigation. It’s also equipped with a chrome Ididit steering column, Billet Specialties steering wheel and custom pedals. The plush carpet is covered with custom made matching floor mats. The fuse panel, MSD electronic ignition box and Optima Red Top battery is accessed behind the back of the two bucket seats which are easily removable. This interior is truly breathtaking.

The engine compartment is highly detailed throughout with many custom parts. The backside of the hood was smoothed and painted. The firewall is also smoothed and painted. The AC braided hoses were neatly plumbed into the firewall. The Hot Rod is powered by a fuel injected GM Performance 572 V8 crate engine that is rated with 620 horsepower and 650 ft.lb of torque. This engine was dyno tested by Wheel to Wheel Powertrain in Madison Heights, MI. It made 621HP with 649 ft.lb of torque as advertised and the dyno sheet included. The engine was dressed with a March Performance Futura billet aluminum air cleaner, carbon fiber valve covers with 572 emblems, billet wire separators and a March Performance Ultra Drive pulley system. From the research gathered this engine, fuel injection system, air cleaner, valve covers and pulley system would be roughly $ 30,000.00. The engine is cooled by a custom polished aluminum radiator with large electric fan and aluminum overfill canister. The engine breathes through Hedman Performance ceramic headers and a fully custom 3” ceramic coated side exhaust system with Magnaflow mufflers. From the research gathered this entire exhaust system would be roughly $ 5,000.00. The engine is coupled to a new 700R4 automatic transmission with overdrive. The transmission has an aluminum pan and transmission cooler for high temperature control. The power is transferred to the pavement through the aluminum driveshaft and Ford 9” POSI rear end. This Hot Rod weighs less than 3000 pounds and with this drive train it’s extremely fast!

The undercarriage is also highly detailed throughout with many custom parts. The bottom side of the body was smoothed and painted. It’s literally as nice as the top side. The body sits on a Downs chassis which was also painted black. It has an IFS cross member. The custom fuel tank was also painted black. Most of the parts used are polished or powder coated throughout. It’s equipped rack and pinion steering. The independent front suspension system has adjustable tubular upper and lower control arms. The Heidts Super Ride rear suspension system has four springs with Alden shocks. The power braking system consists of a Wilwood master cylinder, CPP proportioning valve, polished booster, and four wheel disc brakes including 13” disc brakes with 6-piston calipers with rear inboard setup. This is one of the most detailed undercarriages we’ve ever had in the MS CLASSIC CARS Collection!
