Streetside Classics-Dallas/Fort Worth

There's a reason songs were written about the Ford Deuce coupe, and this awesome streetrod is further evidence that nothing is cooler than a slick-built 1932 Ford 3-window Coupe. Finished a scant 149 miles ago, it's equipped with a powerful 350 V8 motor, a sizzling bright red paint job, and a supremely comfortable A/C interior. This 'Lil Deuce Coupe can definitely walk the walk.
Built very recently with nothing more than break-in miles on the odometer, this awesome 3-window coupe was built with a top-of-the-line fiberglass body, which means no actual 1932 Fords were harmed in the construction. The end result is about ten times nicer and much more durable than any original you're likely to find, with hotrod curb appeal through the roof. With a slight rake, big-n-little tire combination, exposed engine bay, and a full-fender/running board body, it's a modern take on a traditional hi-boy hardtop, and we definitely love the look of this professionally built icon. The Torch Red paint is absolutely dialed-in, applied by experts and only showing very minor imperfections throughout, this is firmly a top-end driver. We're incredibly happy that the builders showed restrained and added no graphics, decals, or even a pinstripe anywhere on the body, meaning it looks uniform and sleek, and will never look dated. Execution was first-class throughout, with laser-straight bodywork, excellent panel gaps, and an attention to detail that makes great rods like this stand out amongst the crowd. Smoked glass all around adds to the high-tech look, as do the period-perfect taillights, chrome spreader bars, the upright waterfall grille, and details like the King Bee-style headlights and one-piece windshield are traditional components that look just right on this hotrod '32.
Inside, you'll be stunned by the gorgeous tan upholstery accented with custom patterns and beautifully installed throughout the cabin. Wonderfully complementing the external paint scheme, the bench seat was swapped-in and wrapped in luxurious and durable cloth hides, showing uniform and consistent two-tone coloring on all the soft-parts. That's not to say that the cabin is subdued or boring either, with flashes of dynamic styling found in the custom door panels, the bright red tilt column, and beautifully arranged dash. There's a surprising amount of room in there, even with the chopped top design, and with several modern conveniences you shouldn't be afraid to run this one cross-country. The leather-wrapped billet steering wheel feels great in the hands of any driver, and a tall Lokar shifter with a billet knob juts out from the transmission hump. A custom dash was finished to match and highlighted with stainless and billet accents, and it houses a full complement of Dolphin gauges that keep a close eye on the engine. A/C vents and controls were then cleverly integrated underneath, while the custom headliner incorporates a Kenwood AM/FM/CD/AUX head unit, and it manages the upgraded speakers inside the doors and behind the seats with help of a rear-mounted amplifier that's been stashed away out of sight. Out back, the trunk was finished with matching materials and includes custom panels all-around, and there's plenty of room for all your car-show goodies.
Wherever you're going, however, it won't take long to get there thanks to the potent 350 cubic inch V8 motor under the hood. Topped by an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor and a polished aluminum intake, it has horsepower written all over it with strong throttle response up and down the speedometer. The block and its components were covered in chrome and polished aluminum, with custom flame-etched valve covers and a trick air cleaner leading the way, and all that bright stuff really pops out from the Torch Red engine bay. A giant radiator with an electric fan keeps it cool, all the plumbing and wiring has been neatly routed and organized, and the firewall was smoothed and painted to match the exterior. A smooth-shifting TH350 3-speed automatic transmission handles the power from the small block with ease, and there's a wonderfully throaty soundtrack from the long-tube headers that feed into a Flowmaster dual exhaust system. The undercarriage looks just about as nice as the top, with clean black paint and upgraded suspension components throughout, including a Mustang II style front end with rack-and-pinion steering, coilovers in the rear, and a heavy-duty rear end with capable gearing inside for both off-the-line and highway driving. Power front disc brakes mean this lightweight '32 stops on a dime, and the rolling stock sits atop a classic Cragar big-and-little set-up that finishes off the traditional hi-boy look perfectly.
Fully sorted and looking good, this '32 hotrod does everything right and is ready to hit the road today. Just be ready for the crowds that will surely follow. Call today!
