1932 Ford OtherThis five window, 1932 Ford originated as a hotrod in Simi Valley, CA. It was owned by the Wortman Family there in the early 1950s. In 1959 it was channeled 2 inches and fitted with a 1957 Chrylser drivetrain. The 392 is out of a Chrysler 300 letter series, with 2x 4 barrel carbs. It was heavily involved in the drag racing in Southern California area in the early 1960s. In 1970 Scott Wortman, the owner, moved to his uncle's farm in Wetmore, KS. In 1972, the 392 was rebuilt with the intent to go racing in Kansas. As usual, plans don't always go as hoped and the car was stored until 1985 when Scott decided to sell it. This is where Rick Reust comes in. He saw an add for the 32, called and went to look at it and was exactly what he was looking for. Even the yellow paint and pin-striping is vintage 1950s. The only catch was, Scott was not home and his aunt had Rick in to look at the car. Rick waited over two hours for Scott to return and unfortunately found out the car had been promised to a relative.
Ten years had past and in 1995, Rick returned home to find a message that stated, "I have that 32 Ford you wanted to buy, call me if you want to buy it". Rick purchased the car the next day. The car was untouched from the 1960s. It still retained its Chrysler 392 Hemi with a Crager intake with four Stromberg 97s, Joe Hunt Mag original Moon gas tank and fuel block push button transmission and slicks on the rear.
Over the years, Rick slightly modified the 32 for drivability while retaining all the vintage nostalgia of a period correct hotrod. It has received a new turbo 350 trans, new exhaust system and updated interior, but retained original Stewart Warner gauges. It runs on the center two Stromberg 97s and drives fantastically.
It also has new Lincoln style front backing plates chromed, with the bendix operating shoes.
This car draws large crowds. I just drove it on a 500 mile trip. Early ford coupe trades.
