This 1932 Ford 3-Window Coupe came to us in need of some upgrades. At first glance, the car looked like a nice everyday kind of hot rod. Upon closer inspection, it had fiberglass fenders, subpar body gaps and fitment, an average drivetrain with a small block chevy, and a few other items that could use some improvements.
To start, a factory style Deuce Steel chassis was built to upgrade the previously used aftermarket style frame. The new frame was fitted with mounts to house the new Smeding Racing 347ci small block ford and automatic overdrive transmission. The rear suspension features a TCI 4-link and Currie Enterprises Ford 9" with a Tru-Trac third member. The front end starts with a chrome dropped (5") and drilled Magnum Axle. In addition to the axle, the front end includes SoCal Speed Shop polish stainless steel spindles, steering arms, hairpins, and mounts.
The body received all new Brookville Roadster steel fenders, running boards, and a Rootlieb hood. After the body was media blasted, the new sheet metal was installed on the car and adjusted for proper gap fitment. New floor pans and a custom lower dash extension were also installed. From there, the body will head to our paint and body shop for a high quality paint job and custom interior.
