This ’33 Ford Cabriolet Tribute is a unique “wide body” vehicle conceived and built by Contemporary Classic Cars, Inc. so that it would have the amenities of a luxury car; however, look like, sound like and perform like a street rod. It has the side profile of a ’33 Ford classic car with a “swoopy” contemporary look.
The C6 power convertible top and huge trunk give you the flexibility to drive in any weather, as well as having room for two sets of golf clubs and baggage—even with the top down! It is no fun going someplace by yourself; with the Cabriolet you can take your spouse or a friend in comfort in any weather. Besides, your spouse may not want you riding a motorcycle! The solid tonneau cover hides the convertible top when the top is down.
Of course, for the purist’s, Ford did not build a Cabriolet in 1933 with a power top. So, what does one do when they like the classic looks of the ’33 but want the latest concept in creature comfort and convertible top convenience—you design your own!! This unique concept deserved a special name, and the company president’s daughter coined the term “Ravenhawk”.
The creation of the Ravenhawk was the fulfillment of a dream of the president of Contemporary Classic Cars, Inc. After a successful career as an engineer and program manager at a major aircraft company, he retired to form his own company. He had already worked his way through ownership of several muscle cars (Mustang, Corvettes, ’40 Ford), but he always wanted a street rod. He quickly learned that the “normal” street rod did not meet his standards of comfort and space. Through considerable effort and expense, the Ravenhawk concept was born.
The Ravenhawk is a hand built, beautiful and unique car that immediately attracts attention whenever driven or shown. There have only been two Ravenhawks built: The first has found its way into a collection, and this one is owned by the president of Contemporary Classic Cars, Inc. It has been on long road trips across the US from Las Vegas to Miami and has been shown extensively by my Sales Agent at car shows and events garnering People’s Choice awards.
The Ravenhawk has a space tube frame with a custom fiberglass body; however, it has a steel firewall, floor, center tunnel, rear bulkhead, and trunk floor. NOTE: All of these are fiberglass on the Corvette!
NOTE: The passenger compartment is 14” wider than a standard ’33 Ford, plus with a stretched wheelbase there is ample leg room to stretch one’s legs!
Contemporary systems have been added: i.e., engine, transmission, and suspension. As many parts as possible were purchased from existing major car manufacturers so that if any repair work is needed, at home or on the road, the local car dealer’s mechanics are familiar with them. This means that existing production parts are available (all glass, power/heated outside mirrors, door latches/locks, window regulators, brakes, convertible top, radiator & dual fans) vs having to send your car back to a custom shop to rebuild the only part that exists.
The 20-gallon fuel system consists of two interconnected custom stainless-steel tanks (similar to C6 Corvette), and the fuel tanks are located under the steel floor forward of the IRS, not in the trunk or aft of the differential!
The comfortable 21” leather, 6 way adjustable power bucket seats have headrests and three-point retractable shoulder harnesses.
The windshield and doors are 4” higher than a C6 Corvette which makes for easier entry and egress, especially vs an exotic car. The frame rails are 2” X 6”, and instead of mounting the floor on top of the frame, we placed the floor at the bottom of the frame. This provides additional space from the top of the seat to the floor, which keeps your knees away from your chin, as well as ample headroom and making it easier to get into and out of. Built as a '33 Tribute, titled as 2017 Assembled Vehicle.
The Ravenhawk has a professional, detailed Owner’s Manual, as well as an alphabetized parts list. Odometer mileage is after completion.
This vehicle is "For Sale by Owner" on an "As Is, Where Is" basis.
