Professionally-built by Lobeck’s V8 Shop at a cost of over $100,000. Built 388 stroker motor, 6-speed manual, 4-wheel disc brakes, leather interior. A very impressive pro-built rod for a fraction of the build cost.

Looking this ’32 Ford over, it isn’t hard to see where a staggering $100,000 was spent, as it exemplifies the finest workmanship and quality in every single detail. The body is an Outlaw fiberglass reproduction, but that only means that it was relatively easy to make it look spectacular. Fit and finish are, of course, off-the-charts nice and thanks to the ministrations of experts, there are layers of detail that are only apparent upon close inspection. The multi-stage urethane paint is spectacular, shifting from blue to purple depending on the light and showing a shine that’s deep enough to swim in. With just over 3300 miles since the build was completed and expert care and maintenance since then, it still looks fresh and needs nothing to look its best today. There’s also a removable steel hood with a 2-seat Thunderbird-style scoop, just to set this one apart from the crowd.

The black leather interior was custom-stitched just for this car by the pros at Portage Trim and it eschews tradition for modern comfort. The buckets are deep and supportive, with contrasting white stitching on the French seams, and you’ll note the asymmetric pattern that adds interest. A tilt column and billet wheel make it easy to get comfortable in the surprisingly spacious coupe, and there’s a fully array of suitably vintage-looking Stewart Warner instruments across the color-matched dash. Entertainment is via an Alpine AM/FM/CD stereo in the overhead console, and thanks to layers of DynaMat insulation throughout the cabin, it’s impressively hushed and comfortable inside, even with that big stroker motor doing its thing up front. Hit the button and the power trunk lid opens to reveal a fully upholstered trunk with large Harwood fuel cell, Optima battery, and expert workmanship throughout, from the fuel system to the leather side panels.

Motivation is a 388 cubic inch small block Chevy powerplant. Dynoing at more than 450 horsepower, it uses a Crower crank, Oliver billet rods, and Ross forged aluminum pistons. A Demon carburetor on a McFarland intake feeds the fuel and air to a set of aluminum Dart 220 heads, while gorgeous Dynatech headers manage the exhaust. It starts easily, idles happily in the heat, and doesn’t get cranky thanks to expert tuning and a proven combination. The engine is backed by a Richmond 6-speed manual transmission carried by a custom tube frame chassis with ground and finished welds for a seamless look. The suspension uses Heidt’s chrome A-arms and coil-overs up front and a 4-link out back, so it rides and handles quite well. That rear axle carries 4.56 gears on a limited slip and there’s a disc brake at each corner. Classic polished Halibrand wheels wear traditional big-n-little Mickey Thompson Sportsman tires.

So why is this incredible car so affordable? The hydraulic throw-out bearing leaks and needs to be replaced, which we can easily arrange prior to delivery. Otherwise, the car is exemplary in every way and every bit the amazing machine it appears to be.

So if you’re a fan of tradition, craftsmanship, and spectacular showmanship (all the key ingredients of a true hot rodder), this ’32 Ford delivers. With a weekend of effort, it will be a first-class rod that absolutely looks like a six-figure build and runs superbly. If you’re looking for a pro-built rod at a deep, deep discount, this is a fantastic opportunity.
