Only our second “Mint” 1933 Ford and Danbury’s first; this little three window coupe joins FM’s “Dillinger” sedan in rarified air. DM has a growing line-up of thirties automobiles that I would class in the new technology of model building that goes almost unnoticed. While Corvettes and high-end luxury cars of the classic era get lots of attention, the everyday Ford and Chevy soldiers on with little fanfare. The mainstay of early motoring for the masses, this car made great strides to transition the daily-duty car to the slightly more upscale vehicle that you didn’t mind being seen in back then. It extends their impeccable ’31 and ’32 entries.
Check out our Car List & Reviews section and you will see that DM has a knock-out ’31 Ford Deluxe Coupe in green and black. New tech. Check out their awesome ’32; also a coupe and also a Deluxe model. New tech. The previously issued ’32 Roadster in Washington Blue ain’t half bad either folks. And their ’36 and ’40 models are also relevant, but the earlier ‘30’s era strikes me with greater impact. None so much as this one though. While I like the nostalgic look of the ’31 best, the ’33, here, is just plain darling. Great color choice, two-toned, the body this year started looking more aerodynamic, well, as much as it could all those years ago. But you could see the marked improvement from year to year.
DM did a fantastic job in paint, door hinging and interior fashion. All the texture work is grand and the little detail touches to the engine, dash, perfectly scaled wire wheels and chassis styling makes it another sure fire hit for the Boys in Connecticut. Keep ‘em coming gents; I’m faithfully watching.
