Model A 3 Window Coupe
VERY SLICK HOTROD! CADILLAC 500CI V8, TH400 AUTO, 4 WHEEL DISC, DOCUMENTED BUILD
The 1932 Ford Model A 3-window Coupe is THE hot rod. There are others, but most hot rods today can trace their histories back to the '32 Ford 3-window coupe, and they're as popular today as they ever were. This striking black Ford (titled as a 2013 ASVE) has the right stance, the right profile, and the right big-block hardware to make it look traditional, but all the creature comforts to which we've become accustomed, so it's also easy to enjoy.
Like most streetrods found today, the body is fiberglass, and after looking at this slick coupe you'll realize that a professionally built replica is the way to go. One, it doesn't rust or get dented, so no worries in the future if you drive it. Two, it finishes beautifully and the results show everywhere you look on this car. And three, it's brand new, so you don't have to deal with a creaky old Ford body and instead enjoy a rod that's uber-durable on the outside and tight and quiet on the inside thanks to the wonders of modern engineering. Matte Black is a cool choice simply because it will always look great, and its simplicity looks awesome when accented by the cool custom pinstripes found on this beauty. It's a great driver-quality paint job that was well executed, but even with it's minor flaws it's still an amazing head turner. Even with that custom work, it still has a minimalist vibe that's perfect for the '32 3-window, especially in hi-boy form, and we guarantee that it'll stand out at the next cruise night. Especially with that awesome lowered stance and classic big-and-little tire combo. They skipped the hood but the '32 Ford grill shell is painted to match the body and features a polished insert, plus you get a set of King-Bee-style headlights perched down low on the front suspension, and a set of horizontal blue-dot taillights out back. Take your time and drink it in, because this '32 keeps getting cooler the longer you look at it.
It's definitely got the hot rod look outside but inside it almost feels like a little sports car. Nicely finished in black with a few red accents, the high-back Kirkey racing buckets are extremely supportive and comfortable enough even for six-footers, which wasn't the case with a stock '32. In fact, this particular fiberglass body has a very spacious cabin inside, which isn't often the case in replica rods. Suicide doors and a uniquely designed thin steering column surely helps, and given the quality of the surroundings, it's easy to imagine taking this one out on the Power Tour. Amenities are sparse, because they weren't building a leather couch and wanted to keep weight down, but features like racing harness seatbelts, a thick-rimmed 3-spoke steering wheel, and a tall Lokar shifter that controls the automatic transmission below all improve the driver's comfort inside. Nicely fitted black carpets and custom black door panels give it a very polished look inside and a full array of gold-rimmed AutoMeter gauges are a great look inside the black dash. You'll also note the SunPro tachometer strapped in place to monitor the engine's revs, and the "ole Skool" pinstriped script on the dash harkens back to the Golden Age of streetrod building. There's even a bit of leftover room in the trunk around the custom enclosure for the gas tank, and the relocated battery tucked away provides more room for the beast that dominates the engine bay.
And speaking of that beast, it takes form by way of a thumping Cadillac 500 cubic inch V8 motor with 4-bolt mains that provides huge power and torque for this lightweight Ford. Fed by an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor on an Edelbrock intake and adorned in plenty of chrome and dress-up bits, it certainly has the right look. The brightly detailed engine bay is kind of minimalist, but that's the whole point of a hi-boy, isn't it? An HEI system and chromed alternator means this big block monster cranks with ease, and it's topped with chrome Cadillac valve covers and open-element Edelbrock air cleaner. Sanderson Cadillac Limefire Headers provide a killer soundtrack, and there's an aluminum radiator up front that keeps the big motor nice and cool. The custom chassis is highly detailed and professionally engineered, so it rides great and tracks straight, and the suspension features Pete and Jakes shocks and a 4-link. With all that added power, you need a capable transmission, and the TH400 3-speed automatic transmission in this Deuce Coupe is more than up for the task. Nothing screams "hotrod" better than the classic big-and-little wheel package, and the shiny polished alloys on this Ford are wrapped in staggered 165/80/15 front and 265/75/15 rear performance rubber to finish the killer stance.
With the right look, this Ford brings a slightly different twist to the familiar '32 Ford hi-boy coupe. It's not subtle, but it is tasteful, powerful, and comfortable and there's a lot to be said for that. Call today!
