75 and Still Driving His First Street Rod—But There's a Twist

  75 and Still Driving His First Street Rod—But There's a Twist This custom '40 Ford truck has an extended cab, shortened bed, and an LS3 engine.Steve Wallace has been interested in street rods since he was 12 years old. He was helping his school friends work on their cars even before he was old enough for a driver's license. They weren't doing much hot rodding—just trying to keep their rides running—but they were turning wrenches, learning, and having fun. He was 15 when his family moved from Kansas to California, which meant more exposure to more cars. Today, at the age of 75, Steve is still driving his first street rod. What makes that especially cool is that he's only owned it for five years.

Some gearheads seem to have a real problem with kit cars like what Factory Five sells. They go on about how those aren’t “real cars” and other insults which honestly don’t make much sense. After all, how many people can afford an original Shelby Cobra? If you want a great-looking, “new” 1933 Ford built as a hotrod, Factory Five has a nice kit for that. That’s what the video included with this article is about.

If you haven’t had any experience with Factory Five, know that their kits are pretty nice. We’re not getting some kickback from the company for saying that, so you know. Everyone is going to have their opinions, but we think the kits are good. Of course, what makes any build special is that little extra you put into it, and that’s exactly where this particular hotrod shines.

Instead of going with the standard suspension, the owner went with a 10-way adjustable setup. He’s a smart man, because too often people focus only on the powertrain, forgetting that to really make use of all that power you need a good chassis. It also means this car can be set up optimally for drag racing, road courses, cruising, autocross, etc.

Hot Rod Magazine editor Rob Kinnan wrote in 2009, “The Factory Five Hot Rod handles like an Indy Car .”. We like to tell people that our ’ 33 looks period-correct, but drives like a proper sports car … and the boys at Ridetech just proved this in a HUGE way.

The 347ci stroker Ford V8 in this hotrod is pushing 365-horsepower at the wheels, plus it’s carbureted. These days 365-hp isn’t some extreme figure but it’s respectable. But when you consider the car weighs about 2,000 lbs. that’s actually plenty! Plus, the thing just sounds wicked under load.

To match all that power, this car has a murdered-out appearance. Like a lot of people we’ve been burned out on the all-black look for a while, especially when every lifted truck and custom Jeep was beating it to death. But this car pulls off that sinister appearance quite well, like it was created for the ’33 Ford.
