The 1932 Ford 3-window coupe is THE hot rod. There are others, but most hot rods today can trace their histories back to the '32 Ford 3-window coupe, and they're as popular today as they ever were. This striking black Ford has the right stance, the right profile, and the right hardware to make it look traditional, but all the creature comforts to which we've become accustomed, so it's also easy to enjoy.
The body is by Gibbons, and after looking at this slick coupe you'll realize that fiberglass is the way to go. One, it doesn't rust or get dented, so no worries in the future if you drive it. Two, it finishes beautifully and the results show everywhere you look on this car. And three, it's brand new, so you don't have to deal with a creaky old Ford body and instead enjoy a rod that's tight and quiet on the inside. Black is a cool choice simply because it will always look great, and its simplicity looks great without the need for graphics or pinstripes. It has a minimalist vibe that's perfect for the '32 3-window, especially in hi-boy form, and we guarantee that it'll stand out at the next cruise night. They skipped the hood but the '32 Ford grille shell is painted to match the body and features a polished insert, plus you get a set of King-Bee-style headlights perched down low on the front suspension.
It's got the hot rod look outside but inside it's almost a luxury car. Nicely finished in low-key tan vinyl, the low-back buckets are comfortable enough even for six-footers, which wasn't the case with a stock '32. A tilt column surely helps, and given the quality of the surroundings, it's easy to imagine taking this one cross-country on the Power Tour. Amenities include cold A/C, power windows, seat belts, and pleated seating surfaces so it's all day comfortable. Nicely fitted black carpets and custom tan door panels give it a very polished look inside and white-faced gauges are a great look on the black dash. There's also a banjo-style steering wheel and the Kenwood AM/FM/CD/iPod/Bluetooth stereo system sounds awesome. It also has a built-in backup camera to make maneuvering a little easier. There's a bit of leftover room in the trunk around the custom enclosure for the battery, and it's all been neatly finished with black carpets.
A 350 cubic inch Chevy V8 crate motor with 4-bolt mains provides reliable power for this Ford. Fed by a Holley 4-barrel carburetor on an aluminum intake and dressed in plenty of chrome, it certainly has the right look. The brightly detailed engine bay is kind of minimalist, but that's the whole point of a hi-boy, isn't it? Block-hugging headers feed a custom Flowmaster dual exhaust system with the right sound and there's an aluminum radiator up front that's cooled by an electric fan. The chassis is highly detailed and professionally engineered, so it rides great and tracks straight. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission is linked to a custom 8-inch Ford rear end which hangs on ladder bars with coil-over shocks. Up front you get a dropped axle and a lot more chrome and the traditional Cragar SS mag wheels carry staggered 195/80/15 front and 265/75/15 rear radials.
With the right look, this Ford brings a slightly different twist to the familiar '32 Ford hi-boy. It's not subtle, but it is tasteful and comfortable and there's a lot to be said for that. Call today!
