1932 Ford 3 Window Coupe
For consignment, a green mean machine, in the form of a ’32 Deuce 3 window coupe, which is considered the nirvana of the hot rod examples and was the very first car to take on this kind of genre. This car is a fiberglass replica but holds nicely as an original. Bathed in green, has a powerful 350ci ZZ5 crate mill with some goodies inside, (see Drivetrain section), a leather interior, modern conveniences and is truly a looker and certainly a cooker. rrrrrrrribbbbit!

Perfectly sculpted fiberglass makes up the exterior of this deuce and it’s bathed in tree frog green, which my crack decoder named antifreeze green, ( keep it away from your cat!). Either way it’s expertly applied and sports slightly darker ghost flames on the front fenders. In lieu of the red eyes there is are single large round chrome bezel headlight flanking a central vertical ribbed grille with a body matching cowl. The hood ornament is shaved and a like new curved bumper frames the bottom. The hood is an open cowl version allowing the engine to be viewed and listened to. Curved fenders with a central running board was the design of this era and this is expertly sculpted and molded and of course rust free for this set up. A suicide hinged door is hanging from either side with a small chromed mirror attached. Tinted glass is in for the chopped top, and as the roofline melts into the trunk area a beautiful curve makes its way gently downward to the shiny rear tail lighting and bumper. The car rides on big 17-inch polished Boze wheels wrapped in front 205/50R17 rubber and larger rear 235/65R17 from the 8th week of 2019. A finer detail seen is the engraved 1932 Ford badge in the center of the running board rubber which is a nice highlight as you prepare to enter the interior.
A swing of the suicide hinged doors and what to my wandering eyes appears? All light sand leather expertly stitched into the panels which use vertically ribbed tuck and roll, custom curved armrests and a small corner storage pouch. Some billet actuators are built into the panels and are oval in their shape. A triangular billet aluminum door lock is noted on the edge as well. Nifty! Inside I take a seat on more comfy light sand leather, which is a split back overly padded bench with tuck and roll inserts and smooth bolsters. This leather also covers the vertical surfaces of the interior. While seated, I reach for the billet modern banjo styled wood rimmed steering wheel on top of a chromed adjustable column. This fronts a full fiberglass green jacket dash which is as simple as the original 32’s with two centrally located oval bezel and glass fronted digital readout instrument clusters, each above the other. Blue LCD readouts make it so simple to read you could be illiterate and still drive this car. Oval AC vents are on either edge of the dash, which is also as curvaceous as the front and rear fenders. More sand leather covers a custom console which is very low but effective. Tan carpeting covers the floors and it’s very much like new with sand stitched edging. Chromed oval pedals keep with the theme of this interior, and the KISS theory abounds in here.
Within the oped sided cowled hood sits a beautiful industrial metal flame engraved valve covered 350ci ZZ5 crate engine. Within its confines is hidden a steel crank, a 4 bolt main, a roller cam, roller rockers and it’s all topped with a Holley 4-barrel carb. Coated headers make their way from the heads, and a stainless steel exhaust expels the spent fossils efficiently. On the back is a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission. If it’s not chromed or engraved, its satin cast metal for a wonderful presentation warranting the open sides.
Nothing short of spectacular for this green machine underneath with more antifreeze green, ( skat cat!), painted tank, and floor pans. All else is chromed or painted gloss black for the TCI chassis. The car is using a front and rear Kugel suspension which is independent with coil overs and is blinged to the max. Piping for the stainless steel exhaust is knitted for a fantastic effect. Me thinks this car was definitely trailered as there is nary a speck of dirt. Disc braking is on all 4 corners.
Me being of somewhat simple mind, hopped in and allowed the digits to take over and tell me what to do! Actually it fired right up and off to the test track where it had neck snapping acceleration, bias free panic stopping, and fab handling. The ergonomics are excellent, and all is well with this “hopped” up deuce.
A truly custom fiberglass build that is for go and definitely show. Antifreeze green, and the beauty of a mill are just a few of the highlights on this rod. Yes Grasshopper, snatch the key fob from my palm and you will be able to go fast.
