1932 Ford Other Additional Info:

You are looking at a beautiful show-winning 1932 Ford roadster, featured in the Early Iron section of the May 2014 issue of Street Rodder magazine. The car is composed of a Brookville steel body, frame, and suspension. The hood has been punched with custom cut louvers and tear drop blisters to allow for exhaust manifold clearance of the big block motor. Primed and painted with PPG materials (Toyota Absolutely Red and Hyundai Creamy White with a black pin-stripe), the body has been worked to laser straight perfection, buried in five coats of clear and rubbed to a high gloss finish.
Suspension components consist of a dropped I-beam axle anchored to a chrome leaf spring and and stainless hairpin trailing arms. In back is a four bar system that anchors a 9" Moser-Ford rear end housing with a third member consisting of a nodular case with Traction-Loc style posi unit, 3:55 gears connected to a 31 spline axle shafts. The 348ci 320hp Chevy motor was rebuilt locally by Al Magaloff of Drake Motors in Rochester, NY. Mild Isky cam and lifters give the motor that distinctive hot rod sound and the triple Rochester carbs with progressive linkage adds to the look. Power is delivered to the rear wheels by a 700R4 automatic transmission. Cooling is controlled by a Champion three core aluminum radiator with overflow tank and a 16" Spal straight blade fan with thermostatic control and manual override.
Wilwood 11" disc brakes in the front and drums in the rear provide the stopping power. Big and little Firestone tires give the car the correct stance, with 6:00 x 16 in the front and 7:50 x 16 in the rear. Steering system is composed a Limeworks column shift with neutral safety switch through a steer-clear chain drive steering unit to a vega box. To complete the build, '34 Ford commercial headlights with built in turn signals, inset 1950 Pontiac tail lights, S0-Cal Windshield, rolled and pleated upholstery, glide bench seat, all stainless steel lines, Optima battery, hidden wiring, E-Z Wiring 12 circuit harness, engine turned stainless steel dash, hood hold down plates and exhaust hangers. Stainless steel and grade eight bolts are the mounting hardware throughout the build. Keeping you covered is a Sid Shavers Bop Top mounted on its own frame, which can be removed as a single unit or disassembled and placed in its own storage bag. The cost to replicate this build would be around $85,000, I'm selling mine one for a lot less than that.
Three ring binder with all the tech manuals is included, as well as a copy of the May 2014 issue of Street Rodder magazine where this car was featured.
