1932 Ford Pickup
For 1932, Ford introduced an improved version of the Model A
four-cylinder to accompany the new V-8 in its cars and trucks. This
200.5-cu.in., 50-hp engine was known, appropriately enough, as the
The Model B shared many elements with its Model A predecessor, and
the two had a great deal of physical interchangeability-attested by
the fact that today, many updated Model A's incorporate some or all
of a Model B engine for improved drivability.
This steel rodded version of the 1932 Model B is out there in its
purest hot rodded sense. With front fenders removed and side hood
cowls absent, plain red steel wheels and a 350ci crate engine, we
can definitely get a little pick me up from this pickup!
With its top chopped 3 inches, and transverse leaf springs, front
spindles are on a dropped axle, no front fenders, side hood cowls
or running boards, we have the hot rod version of a pickup truck.
Bathed in light and dark blue, this all steel rodder has a bed
cover and a dark blue vinyl textured top. LED rear taillights,
decent chrome and fairly straight panels this older build holds up
well. Plain red painted steel wheels are all around. 3 inch chromed
tailpipe tips are noted looking out from under the bumper.
With some custom cedar woodwork on the dash, some alligatoring of
the varnish can be seen, but beautiful cedar with imbedded white
faced and gold bezeled Classic instruments in the center. Hanging
above at the front of the headliner, is another custom cedar
shelf/box built in with the CB radio, and a JVC AM/FM/Cassette
stereo. A storage box doubles as the seat pad holder and seat back
holder. Continuing to the bed we note another wood box stretching
across the back of the cab, in the bed. Also carpeting covers the
bed and is kept fresh by the vinyl tonneau snap cover.
350 cubes of crate engine is shoehorned into the engine bay. The
block stampings indicate it is a 1969-1979 350ci V8. There is a
Rochester Quadra-jet 4-barrel carburetor atop and it feeds the
engine through a Holley intake. A TH350 3-speed automatic is bolted
to the rear of the 350ci mill. There is an Oldsmobile rear end and
headers with a turbo muffler system attached.
Nicely restored with no rust, no errors or structural
inefficiencies. Nice black paint even on the frame exists. On the
lower door panels inside some surface and slight invasive rust is
noted on both doors. 4-wheel disc brakes are now attached, and ride
is secured by transverse leaf springs upfront and leaf springs on
the rear. Very clean and well-maintained underneath.
Started quickly and drove just like a 1932 Pickup! Cushioned seats
in foam with cloth covering sitting on wood leaves a lot to be
desired. The truck rode fairly smoothly and has plenty of power to
cruise down the highway, or any back road.
A diamond in the rough, an earlier build which used materials that
could be replaced with many current day sexier options, or just
left to its devices. Either way the truck runs great and is a blank
canvas as to curb appeal, leaving you to dream on! She's my little
deuce truck, you don't know what she's got!
