Vehicle Story

This 1932 Ford 5-window two-door coupe was the product of a custom 1960s build and retains a largely original steel body with long-term racing history. The car was purchased by the current owner's husband in 2013, after which a mechanical rebuild was performed. Power is provided by a replacement big-block 409ci V8 paired with a Tremec 5-speed manual transmission. The build included the installation of full instrumentation, a cloth roof, and performance components such as Hedman headers, Weiand valve covers, and a Painless wiring system. Finished in silver over a two-tone red and white vinyl interior, this coupe is now offered with documentation and a clear Montana title in the owner’s name.

This coupe underwent a rebuild in the 1960s and was driven on the race circuit during that timeframe. The exterior retains an original steel body, hood, deck lid, and fenders, and while not known if original, the glass is free of cracks or chips. The silver paint job dates back to the same era, with some aspects of the exterior remaining unfinished, showing blemishes and patina. Brightwork consists of front and rear bumpers, headlight housings, handles, and additional trim. The photo carousel illustrates cosmetic wear areas on the exterior, in particular the surround for the cloth top and the condition of the older repaint.

Polished aluminum 15” American Racing wheels are wrapped in BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires. The original frame was updated with front and rear suspension components from Pete & Jake’s, and the front brake setup is comprised of cross-drilled rotors gripped by Wilwood calipers.

The interior has a reupholstered vinyl bench seat in two-tone red and white that dates back to the 1960s. The door panels are finished in matching materials with a V-pattern, the metal dash has been painted gray, and the flooring is metal. Other features include a three-spoke aluminum leather-wrapped steering wheel, a skull shift knob, and turn signals. Carousel photos show interior blemishes, wear, and discoloration consistent with age and use.

Instrumentation consists of a set of aftermarket SW gauges and includes a 160-mph speedometer, an 8k-rpm tachometer, and readouts for fuel level, coolant temperature, and oil pressure, as well as redundant gauges located beneath the dash at the driver side. The five-digit mechanical odometer reads approximately 4k miles, though true chassis mileage is unknown. The seller notes that of the dash gauges only the tachometer and fuel indicator are connected, while the under dash units are all functional and offer correct readings for temperature, voltage, and oil pressure.

The big-block 409ci V8 was installed in 1969 and it is reported to have been rebuilt in 2013 and running well. Features include twin four-barrel carburetors, Weiand valve covers, Hedman headers, and a Painless wiring system. Power is directed to the rear wheels via a replacement Tremec 5-speed manual transmission and a Ford 9” rear end.

Photos showing the underside are available in the carousel.

The sale includes the "SIRVIVR" sign from the original build, and the title shows the vehicle to be registered as a 1932 Ford Coupe. A video is available for viewing below.

AUTOHUNTER ADMIN UPDATE 7/27/21 12:17 PM: A video showing the vehicle's front end measurements has been added for clarification.

As stated in the "SIRVIVR" sign, it was the 514th, 32 Ford 5 Window built in 1932!

@tgress – Anyone who wins this car, can do whatever they want, however, If you plan on changing the original steel body, you'll be changing an early edition 1932 Ford 5 window, from it's original date of birth. This Hot Rod has the original steel body on it from 1932, in addition to that, the frame is also the original, however, the previous owner had the frame, professionally built up for the rigors of the bigger motor. In fact, the original Ford plate is supposedly still on the frame, even when it was raced in the 1960's, the frame and body stayed the same. After the previous owner had all the improvements added, ie; motor and framing, he just wanted it to stay the original exterior. Now granted, the exterior and interior may want to be changed, by a new owner (updated), but the previous owner loved this Hot Rod as an Original. ...

In Addition, This car was a Good Guys Event Winner, for being Original!

@ovaljoe – What side is the oil dipstick on driver or passenger side? Also there is a small pad right where the fuel filter is sitting right below it pad extrudes out from between head and block"Should be on passenger side in front of the head down on the block should be 2-Letters".....Starts off like "Q" or "J" then another letter next to it. Sample "QB" or "JD" Thank you, Joe ...

PLEASE NOTE, I HAVE ADDED A VIDEO SHOWING THE FRONT WHEELS ARE NOT OUT OF ALIGNMENT BY QUITE A BIT, IN FACT, PERFORMING THIS TEST, THEY MAY BE TOED OUT 3/16" TO 1/4", ON THE OTHER HAND, IT MAY BE RIGHT ON THE NOSE, DUE TO THE RUDAMENTERY WAY I PERFORMED THE TEST. ALSO, KEEP IN MIND, THE UNDERCARRIAGE PHOTOS GIVE AN OPTICAL ILLUSION ON THE EDGES OF THE LENS. THIS CAR RUNS STRONG, AND DRIVES GREAT. THANKS FOR LOOKING.

@tgress – MJP, not that I'm aware of, I'm selling this Hot Rod for the widow of my friend, the guy who built it, when I looked at the photo your talking about, I agree, however it may be just the way the photo was taken. I have driven it, and there is no front end issue that I could see, nor feel, it drove good. Thanks. ...

Also, If it is out, I'm sure an alignment would take care of it, again, just going by what I know about this Rod. Thanks.
