This is an all steel, 1932 Ford 5 Window coupe that has been completely rebuilt and modified in a traditional 50s/60s hot rod style. To keep the coupe as authentic as possible almost all of the parts used were made before 1960. This is not a cheap and easy way to build a hot rod, the parts are hard to find and often expensive, but the result is like a time warp and is as genuine as they come. Starting with just the body of a real steel 1932 Ford 5 Window Coupe, American Stamping provided the repro Deuce chassis rails. They were then fitted with a model A rear cross member for quick change clearance and a custom K Member for strength. Up front is a 4” drop super bell axle with split ’46 Radius rods and ’48 Ford Pick Up drum brakes and steering box. The rear end is a Culver City Halibrand quick change setup which is located using ’36 Ford radius rods. Original period finned brake drums have been used front and rear and the braking system is controlled with a one inch bore Bendix master cylinder mounted under the floor.
Keeping in the traditional theme, the engine is a 1953 8BA Ford Flathead V8 that has been bored .040” over and fitted with a Mercury crank. Inside is a H&H Flatheads camshaft and Edmonds finned heads with matching intake hold a pair of Stromberg 97 Carbies. Ignition is supplied with a Mallory distributor. The air cleaners are air vents repurposed from a 1955 Cadillac. The engine is paired to a 4 speed Muncie manual transmission with a ’39 Ford shifter.
The original Ford all steel body received a 3 & ½“ chop and was filled for added strength before being fitted with a Juliano style insert. The guards were removed and replaced with cycle guard up front and ’30 Ford Coupe rear guards that were modified to suit and bobbed for that 60’s look. Inside, a more intricate 1940 Ford dashboard was perfectly moulded in place of the original ‘32 item. The entire body was covered inside and out in a custom baby blue paintwork with white accents and detailed pinstriping. The headlights are low mounted ’33 Commercial items and the taillights are ’40 Dodge cowl lights. Inside has been treated to a full retrim in classic white tuck and roll style including seat, door cards, headliner and a full boot fitout. There is a hidden stereo for tunes while cruising around. Completing the look is a set of Wheelsmith steel wheels measuring 15×5 and 16×6 wrapped in period style wide white wall tyres using 560×15 in the front and L78x16 in the rear.
Real deal original 1932 Ford’s are becoming extremely are to find and this car built as a correct period style hot rod is about as cool as it gets.
