The Speed33 is the starting point for your very own custom 1933 Ford convertible. The body, built and sold by the American Speed Company, fits on a 1933-'34 frame, but it has been reworked with longer doors, more interior room and an integrated manual convertible top that folds out of the way beneath a hinged tonneau.
About $27,000 for the body (chassis and numerous options available for extra), americanspeedcompany.com
