A classic hotrod with a modern look.
Custom hotrods are among the coolest expression of classic car lovers, and this 1932 Ford five-window coupe is a great example. While many hotrods out there have paint jobs, graphics and/or materials that leave the car looking dated, this '32 Ford being sold through Art & Speed Classic Car Gallery was built in 2016, and it looks amazing.
A modest chop and exposed engine are classic hotrod cues, but this car really stands out with its Diamond White Pearl paint job and intricate pinstriping down the sides and on the trunk lid. From there, this Ford boasts a polished set of American Racing torque thrust wheels wrapped in Mickey Thompson tires including massive 15-inch wide rubber in the back! The canted radiator and blower-like air cleaner housing finish off this '32 Ford's incredible look.
Complementing the attention-grabbing exterior, this hotrod gets a stylish and functional interior with accommodations that include custom-made bucket seats with pleated upholstery, leather-wrapped steering wheel, chrome tilt steering column and a billet gauge cluster. The custom center console houses a pair of stainless steel cup holders and a marine-style audio system.
At the heart of this hot rod is a 302 cubic-inch V8 with dual carbs, high-rise intake and ceramic headers, and this engine is hooked to a C4 automatic transmission. The Ford rides on a custom fabricated tube chassis that has been z-cut in the front for a perfect stance that is still ideal for driving, and the build uses a Mustang II front end and a nine-inch Ford rear end.
