The best features, the most interesting body style, and serious V8
power - this 1932 Ford Phaeton loves to turn heads and burn
The Phaeton body style has a thin roofline that gives the car a great open feeling even with the folding top in place. That gives this American classic a very European feel. Plus, when you want to be fully enclosed, the side curtain package buttons it all up nicely. The steel body on this car helps give the slick black paint a hard shine, and so the overall appearance is both aggressive and glamorous. And like any good classic, there's plenty of room for brightwork. The waterfall grille, headlight surrounds, bumpers, and windshield frame really add extra sophistication. But the shine that you notice the most are the wheel 15-inch wheels. And with the spinner center caps and staggered size, they are pure aggression.
The interior does a great job of mixing a vintage feeling with modern comfort. The seats are a great example of this by utilizing a durable gray vinyl in a classic-style pattern. But as you look closer, you'll notice individual bolstering for bucket seat-like level of comfort in both rows. This has all the right vintage style, but there are still plenty of hints at performance. The three-spoke steering wheel has a grippy feeling. And beyond that the full VDO gauge package makes this feel far more modern than a '30s machine.
You can open either side of the hood, and both angles reveals some serious power stuffed within the engine bay. This is a 302 cubic-inch V8, and so you'll be proud to showcase blue oval performance in this classic Ford. But more than just the heritage, this one looks great with all the polished components like the air topper, valve covers, pulleys, and so much more. In fact, the shine is always doubled thanks to the mirror-like firewall. More than just look great, this V8 has been enhanced with go-fast goodies like a Holley four-barrel carburetor, performance intake, and Hedman headers that feed the rumbling dual exhaust. And don't forget to check out the undercarriage photos. There you're going to spot some of the best upgrades around like the polished four-link front suspension and the chrome Jaguar independent rear. Finish it all off with a stout three-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel disc brake package, and you soon realize that this Phaeton can run circles around the rest of the '30s bunch.
With less than 26,000 miles on this unique custom build, you're getting a stellar package that lets you show up and show off. Something this cool never waits for long, so don't miss out, call today!
