For Sale: 1932 Ford 3-Window Coupe in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

There's a reason songs were written about the Ford Deuce coupe, and this awesome streetrod is further evidence that nothing is cooler than a slick-built 1932 Ford 3-window coupe. Equipped with a powerful 355 V8 crate motor, a sizzling custom paint job, and beautiful A/C bespoke interior, this is a show car that can definitely walk the walk.


Built less than 20K miles ago according to the odometer, this awesome 3-window coupe was built with a top-of-the-line Kilborne fiberglass body, which means no actual 1932 Fords were harmed in the construction. The end result is about ten times nicer and much more durable than any original you're likely to find, with hotrod curb appeal through the roof. With an aggressive rake, big-n-little tire combination, and a fender-less body, it's a modern take on a traditional hi-boy hardtop, and we definitely love the look of this professionally built icon. The PPG Torch Red paint is absolutely dialed-in, applied by experts and only showing very minor signs of use since it was finished. Custom flame graphics were painted-on and perfectly accent the hood and profile, with an uber-cool color progression that really shows off the artisan painter's chops as a pinstriper. Execution was first-class throughout, with straight bodywork, great panel gaps, and an attention to detail that makes great rods like this stand out amongst the crowd. Smoked glass all around adds to the high-tech look, as do the teardrop taillights, chrome spreader bars, the exposed custom front suspension, and details like the King Bee-style headlights and one-piece windshield are traditional components that look just right.


Inside, you'll be stunned by the gorgeous gray upholstery accented with custom red flames that was beautifully installed throughout the cabin. Wonderfully complementing the external paint scheme, the buckets were swapped-in from a late-model Cavalier and wrapped in luxurious and durable hides, and the look is very trick but not over-the-top. That's not to say that the cabin is subdued or boring either, with flashes of Torch Red flames found in the custom door panels and unique custom vinyl floor coverings. There's a surprising amount of room in there, even with the chopped top, and with several modern conveniences you shouldn't be afraid to run this one cross-country. The steering column is a beautiful polished and painted tilt unit topped by a slick, carbon-fiber wrapped billet wheel that feels great in the hands of any driver, and a tall Lokar shifter with a billet knob juts out from the center console. A custom dash was finished to match the exterior and highlighted with more custom pinstripe work, and it houses a full complement of VDO gauges that keep an eye on the engine. A/C vents and controls were then cleverly integrated into the center console and under the dash, along with switches for the power windows. The custom headliner incorporates an Alpine AM/FM/CD/AUX head unit, and it manages the kickin' stereo with upgraded speakers and a powerful amplifier stashed away inside the cabin. Out back, the trunk was finished with matching materials and includes custom panels (including one for the battery) all-around, and there's plenty of room for all your car-show goodies.


Wherever you're going, however, it won't take long to get there thanks to the potent 355 cubic inch V8 balanced and blueprinted motor under the hood. Topped by a Holley 4-barrel carburetor and a Weiand polished aluminum intake, it has horsepower written all over it with strong throttle response up and down the speedometer thanks a 327 Crane cam and 9.5:1 flat-top pistons inside. The block and its components were covered in chrome and polished aluminum, with custom valve covers and a trick air cleaner leading the way, and all that bright stuff really pops out from the Torch Red engine bay. An Afco aluminum radiator with an electric fan keeps it cool, all the plumbing and wiring has been neatly routed to keep it out of sight, and the inner fenders and firewall were smoothed and painted to match the exterior. A smooth-shifting TH350 3-speed automatic transmission handles the power from the small block with ease, and there's a wonderfully throaty soundtrack from the Hooker headers that feed into a Flowmaster dual exhaust system. The undercarriage looks just as nice as the top, with bright red paint and upgraded suspension components throughout, including a chromed front end with Unisteer rack-and-pinion steering with a steering dampener, QA1 adjustable coilovers in the rear, and a Ford 8-inch posi-traction rear end with 3.55 gears inside. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission shifts smoothly and handles all the power, spinning a Ford 9-inch rear out back. 4-wheel disc brakes at every corner mean this lightweight '32 stops on a dime, and the rolling stock sits atop a classic Boyd Coddington big-and-little set-up with 215/45/17 front and 295/45/20 rear performance radials that finish off the traditional hi-boy look.


Fully sorted and looking good, this '32 hotrod does everything right and is ready to hit the road today. Just be ready for the crowds that will surely follow. Call today!
