After the American motoring public enthusiastically greeted Ford's new V-8 engine in 1932 the following year the automaker redesigned the entire line of cars.
The most popular model of the various 1933 Fords offered was the standard two-door sedan which had a base price of $450. A total of 106,387 such cars were manufactured. The fresh new design coupled with a new V-8 engine proved irresistible to many prospective buyers.
Somewhere along the line an unknown party bought one of those 1933 standard two-door sedans and had it professionally restored before selling it to a Rockport, Texas man.
Soon thereafter the Texan reportedly found another car, the car of his dreams, and relegated the 1933 Ford to the back of his garage. Years later the car was advertised for sale.
That is where Scott Leaf answered the ad and after a few months of negotiating he became the new owner in October 2015. He had the Ford shipped to his Virginia home where it arrived in November 2015. He had purchased the 82-year-old dark blue car with black fenders sight unseen but all had went well.
