1932 Ford Other Coupe Additional Info:

The 1932 Ford 3-window coupe is THE hot rod. There are others, but most hot rods today can trace their histories back to the '32 Ford 3-window coupe, and they're as popular today as they ever were. This striking black Ford has the right stance, the right profile, and the right hardware to make it look like a traditional hotrod.
The body is by Cromwell, which is one of the better builders by far, and after looking at this slick coupe you'll realize that fiberglass is the way to go. One, it doesn't rust or get dented, so no worries in the future if you drive it. Two, it finishes beautifully and the results show everywhere you look on this car. And three, it's new (at least it was when it was built a few years back), so you don't have to deal with a creaky old Ford body and instead enjoy a rod that's tight and quiet on the inside. Black is a cool choice simply because it will always look great, and its simplicity looks great without the need for graphics or pinstripes. It has a minimalist vibe that's perfect for the '32 3-window, especially in hi-boy form, and we guarantee that it'll stand out at the next cruise night. They skipped the hood but the '32 Ford grille shell is painted to match the body and features a polished insert, plus you get a set of King-Bee-style headlights perched down low on the front suspension.
It's got the hot rod look outside but inside it's nicely finished in low-key black cloth, the low-back buckets are comfortable enough even for six-footers, which wasn't the case with a stock '32. A polished tilt column surely helps, and given the quality of the surroundings, it's easy to imagine taking this one cross-country on the Power Tour. Amenities inside include a Kenwood double-din head unit, a leather-wrapped billet steering wheel on a tilt column, a Lokar floor-shifter for the automatic transmission, and modern seating surfaces so it's all day comfortable. Nicely fitted black carpets and custom door panels give it a very polished look inside and retro-style Dolphin gauges inside the polished bezel are a great look on the black dash. There's a bit of leftover room in the trunk around the custom tray for the battery, and it's all been neatly finished with black carpets.
A built 383 cubic inch V8 Stroker motor with 4-bolt mains provides reliable power for this Ford, augmented with an Edelbrock Perfromer cam, GM heads, hydraulic lifter, and a .030 overbore. Fed by a Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor on an Edelbrock Air Gap aluminum intake and dressed in plenty of chrome, it certainly has the right look. The brightly detailed engine bay is kind of minimalist, but that's the whole point of a hi-boy, isn't it? Ceramic-coated Sprint headers with a 26-inch extension feed the custom exhaust system with a killer sound and there's an aluminum radiator up front that's cooled by an electric fan. The chassis is highly detailed and professionally engineered, so it rides great and tracks straight, anchored by a Speedway front end and coilovers in the rear. A Monster TH350 3-speed automatic transmission with a mild shift-kit is linked to a custom 8-inch rear end, so the power is distributed perfectly both on the street and at the strip. The raked stance is just right, with a classic big-and-little look set-up via chrome Cragar SS wheels wrapped in staggered 195/60/14 front and 295/50/15 rear radials.
With the right look, this Ford brings a slightly different twist to the familiar '32 Ford hi-boy. It's not subtle, but it is tasteful and comfortable and there's a lot to be said for that. Call today!
