1932 Ford Model B Pickup
For 1932, Ford introduced an improved version of the Model A
4-cylinder to a new V8 in its cars and trucks. This 200.5 cubic
inch 56hp engine was referred to appropriately as the Model B. The
Model B has many elements of the Model A and the two have a great
deal of interchangeability, and today it still holds true as many
updated Model A's incorporate the Model B engine for improved
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 V8 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. The bed floor is covered
in blue carpeting and the hood top cowl is stored here too. LED
front and rear lighting is now on, decent chrome and fairly
straight panels this older build holds up well. Plain red painted
steel wheels are all around and wrapped in thin whites. Also, a
moon cap and trim ring is within these wheels. 3-inch chrome
tailpipe tips are noted looking out from under the bumper. We give
you a Blazin' Blue 32!
As I unlatch the Bear Claw door latches a light blue stitched vinyl
panel for each door greets me. A dark blue carpeted panel is below.
Inside a black background with a bit of texture is on the dash.
Mounted to this black faced dash is a blue padded vinyl panel that
uses vintage styled white faced gauges with gold bezels. Above at
the windscreen top edge of the white headliner is a custom upper
mounted console if you will which houses an AM/FM/Cassette radio.
For the vertical panels white tuck and roll vinyl covers these
surfaces. 2 low back blue buckets are now installed and these float
on Wilton wool Rolls-Royce carpeting. A black rally steering wheel
and a Lokar shifter reach out for the driver to control this truck
down the road.
350 cubes of V8 engine is shoehorned into the engine bay. The block
casting numbers indicate it is a 1969-1979 350ci V8. Atop is an
Edelbrock 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. A new cooling system has recently been installed.
There is an Oldsmobile rear end and headers with a turbo muffler
Nicely restored with no rust, no errors or structural
inefficiencies, and a fresh coating of paint. 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. New power disc
brakes are now attached to the front, and on the back power drums
are also new. The ride is secured by transverse leaf springs
upfront and rebuilt leaf springs on the rear. Very clean and
Started quickly, and drove just like a 1932 Pickup! Blue padded
vinyl seats help with the ride. The truck rode fairly smoothly and
had plenty of power to cruise down the highway, or any back road.
Good handling, and a smooth shifter. All functions were working
A diamond in the rough, an earlier build which used materials and
plenty of new ones which update the truck to have current day
sexier options. A turnkey truck that runs great runs great and is a
blue canvas to curb appeal, leaving you to dream on! She's my
little deuce truck, you don't know what she's got!
