Some lofty expectations come with its high impact niche and this 1932 Ford Coupe Streetrod exceeds them by figurative miles. This is an absolute top-quality build that's logged a mere 1000 miles since going into service and combines world class visual appeal with a well-configured, powerful drivetrain and an inviting, ultra-sharp interior to make for a truly standout ride.
The sheer head turning magic of this Ford becomes evident right away. It already started with quite a memorable foundation - the Fords of this era were stylish rides that readily lent themselves to the aftermarket customization this one represents so well. It's draped in magnetic purple paint that is without a doubt show quality, with a deep shine that seems to be coming from a foot beneath the surface of the exterior and skillfully applied, subtle ghost flames decorating the prominent hood. Shaved door handles and a tastefully chopped cabin add still more distinction, while the low, inclined stance strikes a fine balance - dropped enough to pull focus while still leaving enough clearance to navigate real world driving situations. The flowing front and rear fenders frame the aftermarket wheels perfectly and are bridged by broad running boards wearing fresh rubber step pads. Every piece of chrome on board is in top form as well, from the signature grille and headlights up front to the custom rear bumper and taillight casings in back.
A nicely detailed saddle leather interior awaits beyond the doors. In contrast to the often-seen “louder is better” sensibilities shown by many of its counterparts, this driving environment is tastefully understated and if you glance around, you'll see evidence of plenty of skilled workmanship. The leather bench seat is in pristine condition and it's surrounded by matching surfaces, including the door panels and headliner. Take your place behind the padded aftermarket steering wheel perched on its tilting column and take ahold of the Lokar shifter and you'll get quite an urge to fire this beauty up and get out on the boulevard to an audience of admiring onlookers. A striking chrome panel surrounds an instrument cluster filled with fresh AutoMeter gauges. In addition to the attention this classic will no doubt attract, it offers a level of comfort not generally associated with streetrods - in addition to its standout seating accommodations, air conditioning makes this Ford a joy to drive year round, an Alpine AM/FM/CD stereo sits at the center of the dash to provide a quality audio experience, while power windows, power door locks and remote door openers make getting in and out a breeze.
You'll have plenty of dependable power at your disposal in this street machine. An impeccably dressed 350 cubic inch V8 takes center stage in the engine compartment, wearing a pair of Centerbolt heads and armed with a mild street cam for some added muscle that comes at no expense to drivability. Fed by a Weber 4-barrel carb that sits on an Edelbrock intake manifold, the fresh engine is good for 330 horses, plenty to propel this fairly lightweight vehicle with authority and it sends a nice deep note into its headers as it teams with a 3-speed automatic TH350 transmission that shifts without issue. Coilover suspension at both ends provides a smooth ride, while power discs at all four corners bring the set of staggered American Racing wheels - 14” Torq Thrusts up front and 17” deep dish wheels in back - to low effort, fade resistant stops.
Outstanding attention to detail and tasteful customization combine to make this 1932 Ford Coupe Streetrod an absolutely top notch ride. Call today!
