In a world where ultra-slick fiberglass street rods are a fact of life, finding a unique ‘32 Ford can be a real challenge. Some builds are dated and need to be modernized, while others are so thoroughly modern they’ll be dated by next year. One of the best bets you can place is on a timeless creation like this polished and flamed coupe. A traditional masterwork that was carefully planned and built by someone who definitely knew their way around an old school blue oval, this classic features familiar pieces like a Chevy V8, a smooth-shifting automatic, American Racing wheels and a custom leather interior. If you’ve been searching for a hot street rod that can be cruised and shown with pride, this fully sorted coupe is ready and waiting!

BODYWORK/TRIM

This Ford’s smooth fiberglass body was created by the experts at Ramrod Fiberglass Reproductions in New Brunswick, Canada. During its detailed, 2008 completion, that shaved resin was mini-tubbed, tunneled for wiring, fitted with a modified trunk floor and augmented with a Vintique splash apron, Brookville Roadster running boards and a Jim Bailie hood. Once the car’s shell was seamless, solid and ready to roll, Dave Bell stacked PPG epoxy primer under PPG Deltron Super Red II base and PPG polyurethane clear. And everything was finished with a spectacular set of Ron Gibbs flames.

Thanks to high quality trim and first-rate mirroring by Cambridge Custom Chrome, this street rod puts the “class” in classic. At the front of the car’s body, a Dan Fink grille frames Dietz-style headlights and Ron Francis Brite Lite marker lamps behind Deuce Factory headlight and spreader bars. At the top of the car, a 3.5-inch chopped top hangs smoked glass between RB’s Obsolete wipers and stylish Bob Drake mirrors. At the sides of the car, shaved, suicide doors and polished step trim create a simple, uncluttered profile that’s wholly appropriate for such fantastic paintwork. And out back, a pinstriped decklid hangs a shaved trunk over smoked LED tail lamps, a machined gas cap, Vintique frame horn covers and a second Deuce Factory spreader bar.

ENGINE

For the benefit of both reliability and performance, traditional street rods often feature souped-up versions of proven powertrains; and the Hilton Motorsports-sourced Corvette LS1 under this Ford’s small steel hood mixes ample power with excellent drivability. Clocking in at 5.7 liters, or roughly 346 cubic inches, that custom-mounted small block twists stout 10.1 to 1 compression into an even 350 horsepower and 365 lb./ft. of torque. Naturally, the mill was trimmed with an impressive roster of hardware, including a Street & Performance air cleaner, Street & Performance coated tight tuck headers, a Jim Bailie-designed air tube, a Sanden AC compressor, a tight fitting pulley system and a Be Cool radiator that’s capped with a large SPAL puller fan. And items like Lokar dipsticks, a Lokar throttle cable, Sachse hood hardware, a custom Jim Bailie engine cover, a Billet Specialties overflow tank and a custom radiator shroud add gratuitous eyeball appeal.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

Like the car’s engine, its painted and chrome-clad 4L60E 4-speed was sourced from Hilton Motorsports of Ontario, Canada. That transmission powers a proven Ford 9-inch, custom-built by Ontario’s Forrest & Forrest Racing, which spins a posi-traction differential around 3.42 gears. In front of that drivetrain, a Total Cost Involved suspension wraps rack-and-pinion steering in chrome control arms and modern coil-overs. Behind that drivetrain, a Horton Hot Rod Parts 4-link makes good use of two more modern coil-overs. The car’s fully boxed frame and professionally smoothed floor host an assortment of top quality finishing hardware, such as tubular cross bracing, stainless fluid lines and a Corvette brake booster. Speaking of stopping, polished, 4-piston calipers clamp vented discs at all four corners. The aforementioned headers flow into a 2.5-inch custom exhaust system that’s fitted with throaty Edelbrock 304 Series mufflers. And polished American Racing Torq Thrust IIs spin 195/60R15 Goodyear Eagle RS-As in front of 255/55R17 Goodyear Eagle RS-As.

INTERIOR

Hit this awesome ’32’s Auto Loc keyless entry and you’ll find that ‘simple’ is the name of the game. The car’s LizardSkin-lined cockpit is trimmed in a leather Glide seat, a full outfit of Lokar controls, Classic Instruments gauges, a Billet Specialties mirror and a digital gear selector. Vintage Air conditioning offers refreshing reprieve from hot summer car shows, while Specialty Power Windows allow for nice fall cruising. A remote-controlled Custom Autosound Secretaudio system makes good use of quality Ron Francis wiring, a hidden Custom Autosound CD changer, a hidden JL Audio amplifier and multiple JL Audio speakers. In front of the driver, a half-wrapped Billet Specialties steering wheel spins around a tilting Ididit column. And behind the passengers, an ornate trunk features a small amount of storage space.
