1933 Ford Five-Window Coupe
Murray, Kentucky

Dan Blankenship mailed us a CD full of images along with a brief description of his Early Iron by writing: "The design of my 1933 Ford five-window coupe was influenced by four other 1933 and 1934 Ford five-window coupes. The first was a 1933 Ford five-window coupe my dad traded his 1932 Ford Model B roadster straight across for in 1942. The barn seen in the background behind my 1933 Ford five-window coupe was built in 1922 by my grandfather. My grandfather drove my dad's 1933 Ford five-window all through World War II until my dad came home from the service." The next 1933 Ford five-window coupes to inspire Dan to build his 1933 Ford competition style were Craig Breedlove's 1934 Ford five-window coupe, featured in Hot Rod in 1960, and the AA/FC 1934 Ford five-window drag coupe of Mooneyham and Sharp.
