For Sale: 1932 Ford Victoria in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

In a world of hotrod factories turning out seemingly endless variations of the same car, this 1932 Ford Victoria comes as a welcome bit of contrast. Sure, it has a fiberglass body, but these days that's not at all a bad thing, especially when comparing the thick, durable glass materials of the modern age to the 'Tin Vickies' of old. This red-hot resto-mod features a custom tube frame, a thumping 302 V8 crate motor, and roomy, comfortable interior that's ready for the rigors of all-day cruising. And with only 2185 on the build, this beauty is barely broken in and ready to hit the streets today.

The 2-door Victoria body style is the ideal blend of sporty and practical, and with the added security of a strong fiberglass body that will stand up to the test of time and never rust, this is a uniquely durable hotrod. Not as frumpy as a 4-door sedan but with a back seat that coupes can't offer, it's just a great-looking car. As you can see, the builder's nailed the 1932 Ford look, with flowing fenders, running boards, a painted radiator shell up front, and sizzling Burgundy paint to make it really stand out amongst the crowd. Finished only 2185 miles ago, that brilliant burgundy paint is simply gorgeous and there must be hundreds of hours in the prep work and final finish, with a deep luster and bright shine that only the top driver-quality finishes can offer. The three-piece hood (complete with louvered sides) gives it a neatly finished look, but they didn't waste time on extraneous details: no pinstripes or graphics, no dated decals, no shaved or chopped extremities that would date the build. Instead, classic pieces like chrome bumpers and spreader bars at the end caps, King Bee style headlights up front, and sparkling chrome on the door handles, side mirrors, and taillight housings are traditional yet still add a little bling that really pops against the deep burgundy finish.

They colored a bit outside the lines for the interior, too, giving it a modern look with fresh, great-looking materials that provide the cabin with a timeless look and feel. Up front, low-back buckets are neatly upholstered in black vinyl hides wear like iron and are all-day comfortable, the roomy rear seat was stitched to match while comfortably sitting two adults, and the door panels at the flanks continue the elegant theme and show practically zero visible wear. The dash was painted to match the exterior and houses an array of Omega Kustom Instruments gauges that keep a keen eye on the upgraded small block under the hood, and they're neatly arranged in the center for easy visibility. A leather-wrapped, banjo-style Grant steering wheel is a sporty edition that feels great in the hands of the driver, and it comes mounted atop a polished tilt column that offers a lot more leg room. Features like front seatbelts, power windows, and a control panel filled with toggles for the starter/headlights/wiper are included, as you'd expect from a quality rod like this, and although the car does come equipped with a modern A/C system (with controls and vents neatly installed underneath the rear bench), the serpentine belt will need to be routed around the chromed compressor under the hood before the system will run. Plush black carpets and a taut headliner above insulate the vehicle from the outside world and tie everything in together perfectly, proving that nothing was overlooked in the build of this gorgeous Deuce Vicky.

Mechanically, this one was REALLY built to run. Power comes from a built Ford Racing 302 cubic inch V8 crate motor that's ready to rumble, filled with a lopey hydraulic roller cam, roller rockers, and a forged crank, rods, and pistons. Ford Racing GT-40 aluminum heads and dual Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetors help build power atop a polished aluminum intake, an HEI ignition provides instant spark, and ceramic-coated headers at the flanks feed into a Flowmaster dual exhaust system that sounds downright erotic. Everything is polished, plated, or painted, which is important when your engine is on display and you can see that a lot of extra time went into making the wiring and plumbing look show-off ready. With a Ford AOD 4-speed automatic transmission, long-distance cruising is definitely on the menu, and it spins an open Ford 9" rear end filled with 3.73 gears. Get your mirrors out because the undercarriage is just as pretty as the top, with lots of burgundy paint, polished components, and new pieces everywhere you look - including a custom triangulated tube frame from Speedway Motors, the polished 3-link set-up in the front, and the 4" dropped Super Bell axle in the rear. Coilovers and 4-wheel disc brakes drastically improve this hotrod's road manners, and the killer look is finished off with flashy 15-inch alloys wrapped in staggered 205/60/15 front and 275/60/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A radials that fill the fenders perfectly.

This gorgeous restomod Vicky is an awesome way to stand out in a crowd without completely reinventing the wheel. Fully sorted and offered with a stack of build receipts and restoration photos, this dialed-in '32 further proves the point that it's always smartest to buy someone else's finished car. Call today!
