If you think that hot rods should be black with flames, then you are going to love Larry Olson’s Bobby Alloway built 1933 Ford that just won the 2015 AMBR, America’s Most Beautiful Roadster, Trophy at the Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona. It’s black, it’s flamed, it’s got a Hemi, and the big and littles just scream hot rod.
The middle of this particular ’33 has been stretched 4 inches, uses sedan doors, and is shaped to be as sleek as any ’33 we’ve ever seen. The paint is spectacular, and you can’t argue with the color combo of the black paint and georgeous yellow and orange flames. It’s hot rod timeless for sure. The black leather interior fits the car just right, but is not something spectacular with regards to design. This one say hot rod in every way, and there is nothing inside that takes away from the outside.
What’s special about this car is the Red Ram Hemi that is under the hood. Dodge’s little Hemi is outfitted with ultra bitchin EFI, a T-5 Transmission, and a quick change out back. Details abound on this car for sure. And as you expect from Alloway, this one is capped off with his trademark big and littles.
We have to send out congratulations out to Larry Olson and Bobby Alloway, and the Alloway Hot Rods team. This is a beautiful roadster for sure. We have to say, that even though EVERY car in the AMBR competition is a contender, there are always a few standouts. Of those, we were not expecting this one to win. It wasn’t a shock by any stretch, but the talk throughout the show was so mixed that we didn’t know which horse to back. Congratulations to all the competitors, these cars are amazing, and each of them should be proud to have been in the running for 2015. Truly amazing hot rods.
