SINISTER DEUCE COUPE! 355CID V8, AUTO, FR DISCS, COLD A/C, COMFORTABLE CRUISER!
For all-out attitude and a super-traditional look, it's hard to beat this '32 Ford 3-window coupe. Stripped down to its bare essentials, it has the look of a pure street brawler, and if it could, it would probably have a pack of Lucky Strikes rolled up in its T-shirt sleeve. This looks like the car every hot-rodder of the '50s dreamed of building, but under the skin it packs 21st century comfort that makes it more sports car than vintage hot rod.
The body is fresh fiberglass, not ancient steel patched back together, and until you've seen one of these high-quality reproductions, you can't imagine how well they fit together. Excellent gaps, a beautiful gel coat that has been properly prepped, and seamless finishing that makes it impossible to tell it apart from its steel counterparts. The sinister satin black paint looks nasty and brutal, and the subtle flames licking along the frame rails give the car a hardcore, no nonsense look that is insanely appealing. A modest chop gives it a traditional look, and the shaved door handles mean that there's nothing to get in the way of going fast. No matter what you're driving, you're probably going to give this little Deuce coupe a lot of leeway on the road.
In the 1950s, few hot-rodders could afford a fully finished interior, let alone buckets like you'll find inside this coupe, but this is no ordinary rod. The gorgeous blue and gray buckets were taken from a late-model, and offer vastly more adjustability than the standard bench, which means this car is all-day comfortable, even for taller drivers. Custom door panels were stitched up to match, and the dark carpets are nicely bound and finished. There's a full complement of VDO gauges keeping an eye on the engine, all framed by a slick billet steering wheel on a tilt column. Custom eyeball vents for the Vintage Air A/C system, power windows, and a stubby shifter all add to the high-quality feel and make this car a pleasure to drive. This coupe also offers a neatly finished trunk with a power lid and custom tool boxes built right in.
There was no messing around when it came time to make horsepower: that's a fresh 350 cubic inch Chevy V8 bored .030 oversize to make 355 cubes. Dressed in its own coat of black paint, there are a few tricks like the custom valve covers, billet accessory drive system, and gorgeous custom ceramic-coated headers. A 4-barrel carburetor is set up properly, so the car fires up quickly and runs superbly out on the open road. There's a big radiator up front and the owner reports that it doesn't get fussy, even on the hottest days with the A/C cranking. The transmission is a TH350 3-speed automatic feeding a Ford 9-inch rear end with 3.23 gears inside, so it's relaxed at 70 MPH. Front disc brakes give this Ford impressive stopping power, and with a monochromatic look that gives the chassis a highly detailed look, it's a shame to take this little coupe off the lift. It achieves a traditional big-n-little look by using staggered Torque Thrust wheels with big-n-little BFGoodrich T/A radials.
Sure, you could build your own, but not for less than the asking price, and you certainly can't duplicate this one's level of fit and finish for the price. Call today!
