There's a reason songs were written about the Deuce coupe, and this awesome 5-window coupe is further evidence that nothing is cooler than a '32 Ford. Equipped with a stout 350 Chevy crate small block, a brilliant red paint job, and handsome beige leather interior, this is a slick rod that can definitely walk the walk.

This handsome 5-window coupe is an extremely solid fiberglass body car that was obviously put together by high-end pros, and the end result is a crispness and level of detail that's usually tough to find at this price point. With a traditional rake, big-n-little tire combination, and a lot of neat details like the chopped top and open engine bay, it sure looks like the traditional hot rod Ford that collects all the trophies at your local cruise-in. But then again, that vivid red, high driver-quality paint job complete with simple pinstripes, well, that looks pretty slick. Execution was first-class when the coupe was built 3,563 miles ago, with laser-straight bodywork, excellent panel gaps, and an attention to detail that makes great rods stand out. Of course, it's been happily enjoyed since day one, so it's no longer perfect, but that also tells you it's a heck of a fun car to drive. Blue-dot 1939 Ford taillights (tilted inward to provide the viewer with a cool pareidolia effect), King Bee headlights on trick dropped mounting bars, and the side exhaust all look like traditional hot rod tricks, while details like the chrome spreader bars fore and aft (the rear has built-in turn signals and brake lights!) and small mirrors on the doors are just modern custom pieces that are just plain cool.

Inside, you'll be impressed by the appealing tan leather upholstery throughout the cabin that provides a perfect contrast to the vivid red exterior. Those low-back front buckets are all-day comfortable and supportive enough for energetic maneuvers, and seatbelts keep you nice and snug. There's a surprising amount of room in there and with all the modern conveniences, you shouldn't be afraid to run this one cross-country. The steering column is a beautiful polished tilt unit topped by a leather-wrapped 4-spoke Lecarra steering wheel, and the simple dashboard was painted in matching red and filled with Dolphin analog/digital gauges. A/C controls and vents have been cleverly integrated into the overall design, power windows are a welcome addition, and many of the secondary controls have been stashed out of sight for a cleaner look. There's also a taut headliner above that matches the seats, some extra storage behind the buckets, and plush carpets below that tie the entire cabin together very nicely. Out back, the neatly upholstered trunk is big enough to swallow a week's worth of luggage for two people (even with the relocated battery), making this a real no-compromises rod that can actually be used in the real world.

Wherever you're going, however, it won't take long to get there thanks to the GM 350 cubic inch V8 crate motor up front. Chevy small blocks are some of the most reliable machines ever devised by man, and this one is no exception, with a Weber 4-barrel carburetor up top handling the fuel-and-air mixture up top. It looks quite OEM with the familiar long-tube headers, a chrome air cleaner, and chrome valve covers, and a custom pulley and bracket system mounts the alternator and R134a A/C compressor tightly to the block. A big aluminum radiator with an electric fan keeps it cool, and all the plumbing has been neatly routed to make things easy to service. The suspension is familiar, with a chromed-out dropped I-beam and rack-and-pinion system up front and a 9-inch rear on a 4-link with coilovers out back. A TH400 3-speed automatic transmission handles gear swaps smoothly and the dual exhaust system with chambered mufflers sounds absolutely fantastic at idle, or when the throttle is opened up and barreling down Main Street. Beautiful 15- and 16-inch American Racing alloys are a great choice and wear 205/70/15 front and 275/70/16 rear blackwall radials to complete the killer look.

This awesome rod is beautifully built, nicely detailed, and shows 3,563 miles, so you know it's sorted out and ready to dominate for years to come. Just be ready for the crowds that will surely form around it. Call today!
