Vehicle Story

This 1932 Ford 3-Window coupe was the recipient of a custom build that utilizes a boxed frame, an open hood, and rear-hinged doors along with Mickey Thompson tires and American Racing aluminum wheels. A triple-carbureted Buick Nailhead V8 provides power by way of a 4-speed manual transmission with a Hurst shifter, and the interior features, power windows, and full aftermarket gauges. Finished in matte light blue with custom pinstriping over a two-tone blue and cream vinyl interior, this hot rod coupe is now offered with a clear Pennsylvania title in the seller’s name.

This coupe rides on a boxed frame and was the subject of an older restoration and repaint in matte light blue, with hand-drawn pinstriping over a straight fiberglass body. Condition is reported to be good throughout, with exception of a half-inch crack in the fiberglass. Exterior design consists of an open front clip, rear-hinged doors, a fender-less side profile, and dual polished exhaust outlets at the rear.

Polished aluminum 16” American Racing Rodmaster wheels are wrapped in staggered-width tires, with BF Goodrich Radial T/A rubber up front and Mickey Thompson Sportsman S/T tires in the rear. The braking system has Buick finned drums.

The two-seat interior is fitted with two-tone blue and cream vinyl upholstery, with matching lap belts and door panels. Blue carpeting is topped by color-matched floor mats, and amenities include power windows, a Hurst T-handle shifter, and a fully finished trunk in matching materials. There are photos in the gallery illustrating some specific cosmetic blemishes with chipping paint around the interior.

Replacement SW-branded instruments at the center of the dash offer a 160-mph speedometer and gauges for fuel level, coolant temperature, oil pressure, and voltage. The five-digit odometer reads 3,600 miles, although true mileage on the chassis is unknown.

The replacement Buick Nailhead V8 features triple two-barrel carburetors and is said to be free of leaks, residing in a fully-detailed engine bay with dress-up bright accents and Offenhauser-branded valve covers. Power is directed to the rear wheels via a 4-speed manual transmission.

Photos showing the fully-painted underside are available in the gallery.

@oldforgemotorcars – Unfortunately the gentleman that owns it has passed away and we are selling it for the family. Very limited information. I just posted a pic of the only numbers I could find on the transmission. As for the engine, there is valley cover and stuff in the way to see the engine stamp. We believe it to be either 401 or 425. ...

Fantastic, thank you.
