Buddy and Nancy Jordan’s “Renaissance Roadster” 1933 Ford coupe by Steve’s Auto Restorations has won the Don Ridler Memorial award at the 65th annual Detroit Autorama. A hand-formed car, it was created completely from the ground up from aluminum and steel flat sheet, tubing and billet. Very few “off the shelf” parts were used and those that were have been highly modified.

Designed by Chris Ito and Steve Frisbie, the Renaissance Roadster is a hand-built aluminum body with a removable top that rides on none other than a S.A.R. chassis with independent front and rear suspension. It features a plethora of aluminum goodies too, like the anniversary edition 427c.i. V8, suspension components, and billet wheels to name a few. Custom bumpers and trim accompany the flawless two-tone paint scheme and a custom leather interior with more custom accents finishes off this beautiful coach built roadster.

It is a big win for the Jordans who campaigned a sweet 1947 Cadillac by Chris Carlson last year from their San Antonio, Texas home base. Congratulations to the entire team on their huge win!
