1932 Ford Victoria Streetrod
This 1932 Ford Victoria streetrod is unusually well-built and reflects an outstanding attention to detail inside and out, as well as under its hood. Thorough planning, top tier components, and skilled craftsmanship have resulted in a top-quality ride, while plenty of care and shelter bring it to the present looking great and running strong. The formula of light curb weight plus abundant power has been a winner throughout the ages, and the arrow straight fiberglass body on this '32 combines with what's lurking under the hood to position it for very inspired performance. The quality of the blue metallic paint it's covered with is evident with just a quick glance - it's a PPG product and sits under a very strong clearcoat for a magnetic shine, accented by hand painted tri-color pinstriping. Get up as close as you'd like to it and you'll still be hard-pressed to find any noticeable blemishes - this streetrod has been well looked after during its lifetime and has the ultra-clean look to prove it. There are some great details on display throughout the exterior - a stainless steel grille and generously proportioned Ford headlights sit up front, and the vented 3-piece hood blends in perfectly as it transitions into the cabin just behind it that features a 3" chop for just the right custom appearance. The tan leather interior was designed and installed from scratch and will stand out in even the most well-heeled of automotive company. From the contoured and ultra-comfortable front bench seat with its separate backrests for driver and passenger, to the door panels, overhead console and beyond, the quality of the details inside the cabin are truly something to behold and everything seems to tie in perfectly. While many streetrods put the emphasis on sheer acceleration, this one has been carefully configured with overall driving experience as a priority. A Vintage Air system keeps things comfortable and the chrome Ididit steering column puts the show stopping custom steering wheel in just the right position while cruise control, power door locks and windows and remote door openers are welcome features you don't often see on cars of this type. The full collection of Ford Motorsports gauges looks great against the blue backdrop of the dash and they, as well as the control knobs and switches just below, are all in good working order. There's no letup to the exceptional quality as far as the mechanical aspects of this Victoria are concerned. Everything has been put into place to create an outstanding driving experience. A 350 cubic inch V8 sits in the engine compartment, surrounded by inner fenders and a firewall in showroom condition and painted to match the exterior. The powerplant is carrying a pair of aftermarket aluminum heads and an Edelbrock 4-barrel carb and polished intake manifold. It's good for a full 355 horsepower while sending a great sounding exhaust note through its Sanderson headers leading to its dual exhausts. The engine pairs with a 4-speed automatic 700r4 transmission whose overdrive gear keeps revs down on the highway. A dazzling array of chrome components, as well as Billet Specialties brackets and a K&N billet air cleaner, peg the meter on eye candy, while a Walker radiator sits up front with its thermostatically controlled fan to keep operating temperatures under control. The Heidts Superride front end not only provides a nice ride and strong handling via its coilover suspension, but also front disc brakes for fade resistant stops as this exceptional streetrod wows all within viewing distance on its Halibrand wheels with 3-spoke spinners that carry Michelin radials. Search long and hard and you're still not likely to come across a streetrod as well configured and clean as this 1932 Crown Victoria streetrod. Call today!
