1932 Ford 3-Window Coupe
If you were to close your eyes and imagine the ideal modded vintage coupe, the 4-wheeled image you conjured up would have to look an awful like this 1932 Ford 3 Window Coupe. With its outstanding exterior dressed in a great color, an unbelievably long list of top tier components on board, and a monster of an engine peering out from its compartment, it's an absolute category killer. The mere sight of this car will prompt an adrenaline rush. An unbeatable combination of great aesthetic choices and outstanding craftsmanship has resulted in a vintage ride that would stand out in any crowd of classics, anywhere. Ford's 3 Window Coupe has been used as a blank canvas for quite a number of aftermarket projects over the years, but this one occupies some seriously rarified air. Its burgundy shade matches its form perfectly and is exceedingly well applied - no drips, uneven spots or orange peel to be found. The chopped windows surrounding the cabin have been modified with precision, and you'll find a fresh expanse of chrome trim surrounding the windshield. Trace this '32 from front to back and you'll be continually impressed - the signature ornate front grille looks great, the open engine bay is a showstopper and the flow of the fenders as they transition into the running boards before rejoining the rear fenders is so seamless, it takes a second glance just to appreciate how the modifications cleared space for the massive rear tires so seamlessly as to not detract from the rest of the car. The magic doesn't stop as you open one of the suicide doors to enter the cabin. Every detail you see here looks to have been meticulously planned out, with a matching red and gray pattern across the surfaces of the pair of contoured leather buckets originating out of a late model Camaro and the door panels they're bracketed by. A truly inspired dash area sits just beyond the custom steering wheel mounted on a tilt column, with a full set of VDO gauges located inside a backdrop of brushed aluminum, joined by a trio of in dash air vents and an AM/FM/CD system to provide your audio soundtrack while on the road. An assembly of air conditioning components come with the car to complete this feature at your discretion. The spacious trunk area in back features a color pattern matching the interior, and the strut entrusted with keeping the raised deck lid in place works just as intended. We come across our share of well-equipped cars here, but still have to marvel at the assembly of top tier mechanical components this '32 features. It's as if an automotive Genie was summoned to grant an exhaustive wish list with one all-encompassing nod. A 383-cubic inch stroker engine sits on display in the open compartment, armed with a Hampton blower, Lunati crankshaft, Crowler roller cam, a pair of Chevy 2.02 heads and twin 750cfm 4-barrel carbs for world-class power. The engine partners with a 3-speed TH400 automatic transmission that's been upgraded with a B&M shift kit and a 3000 RPM stall converter, plus a Franklin Quick Change 4.11 rear end sitting in back, so you can only imagine the acceleration that'll be at your disposal. The upgraded suspension provides modern rack and pinion steering, coilovers at all four corners and disc brakes up front. This incredibly equipped coupe rules the asphalt on a set of custom Team III wheels - 15" in front and 15.5" in back - that are outfitted with Uniroyal AWT tires that include massive 33s in back. If you're looking to have the last word as far as supremely equipped street rods are concerned, you have to make this 1932 Ford 3 Window Coupe your first stop. Call today!
