1932 Ford 5 Window Coupe
They've been building cars for 71 years since Henry Ford introduced the body style that followed the Model T's 19-year run and the Model A's 4-year stretch. It was in production for barely a year, and yet to this day, no other car has been as popular among hot rodders as it has. It is the car that appears more than any other in hot rod enthusiast magazines. It is the car that has been treated to literally every conceivable form of performance and appearance modification. It is the car that appeared on the very first cover of ROD & CUSTOM. It is the car that has appeared at least once in every issue Hot Rod Magazine going back as far anyone can remember. It is the car practically everybody immediately thinks of when they hear the term “hot rod.” We're talking about the '32 Ford, known to you and me simply as the Deuce.
For consignment the iconic hot rod Deuce in 5 window form. This one has been custom built from the ground up finishing a 1 1/2-year job in 1999. All the best has been put in, and it shows and goes like all the best has been put in!
A chopped (3”) Gibbon body, with a custom chrome tilt out windshield, Rootlieb hood, nerf bars front and rear, and all bathed in PPG Green base coat/clear coat. Chrome is very nice in the form of front and rear bumpers, and a wonderful grille up front, flanked by dual old-style chromed headlights. Curving fenders, matching the body color, frame the wheels. and come together at a running board for easy in and out on both sides. Yellow painted steel wheels with trim rings and dog dishes are wrapped in wide whites.
Custom to say the lease with conveniences added. Noted upfront is a body matching front dash which has a smattering of Auto Meter gauges all lined up across the center. A Kenwood AM/FM/Cassette and a hidden 6-disc CD player in the nicely finished trunk are fronted by a banjo steering wheel. Vintage air and heat have been added, and power windows now make your life easier, as that cranking is so pedestrian! Door panels are ultra-suede in camel color, and the bench seat emulates that between the doors. These have a Hurst shifter in the middle. Cruise control, a tilt wheel, and intermittent wipers bring this rod up to date. A shout out to the trunk also finished off in ultra-suede, smoooooooth.
A GT-40 Racing Ford 302ci crate engine with SVO aluminum heads has been fitted into the engine bay. Three 2-barrel Holley carbs grace the top of the HPC coated intake and headers. A T-5 manual transmission with a Lakewood bell housing run power back to a 9” Currie rear with 3.50 gears.
A TCI chassis holds all this beautifully painted and shiny steel that has no runs drips or errors within a mile of it. Very clean and well done. A chrome 4” dropped axle, Wilwood 4-wheel disc brakes, and an impressive polished stainless exhaust will have people literally staring at the undercarriage it is that well done.
Starts right up and begins growling immediately. Move that Hurst shifter to 1st gear, let the clutch out and the horses begin to release as you put your riding boots into it. It handles nicely, is a great cruiser, and all the conveniences added work flawlessly. Seats are “ultra” comfortable, and this car can make some nice noise.
Meticulous build attention, some of the finest parts, great paint, many conveniences and we have one of the nicest turnkey deuce coupes that has graced our halls in a while. Hard to find many faults on this build, and hard to resist making a solid buy that will yield years of enjoyment. This car comes with plenty of awards, and another set of American Racing Torqueflite wheels and black wall tires.
