LMC is very proud to offer this 1932 Ford 3 Window Coupe
Hot rod culture started in the early 1930s when enthusiasts in Southern California started modifying their cars and racing them on dry lake beds and beaches. Modified to reduce weight, the original hot rods were typically vintage Ford Model Ts, Model As and Model Bs. These cars were quite often channeled, relieved of excess pieces like hoods and windshields, and given a proper engine tune or different block all together to increase their power output.
Today enthusiasts are modifying Hot Rods like this 1932 Ford 3 window coupe with the addition of modern performance and amenities. Starting with a brand-new Brookville steel body, this coupe was primed, block sanded, and painted in a stunning shade of Yellow. The previous owner wanted a similar color to the deuce used in the hit movie “American Graffiti”. The interior has been trimmed in a luxurious tan leather with the same quality as modern luxury vehicles. Additional amenities include tilt steering, Omega Instrument gauges, Vintage Air conditioning, power door locks and a Pioneer stereo system.
Under the hood, it is powered by a small block 350ci/320hp GM crate engine topped with an Edelbrock carburetor and MSD ignition providing great performance and reliability. This stout powerplant is backed by a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive for easy highway cruising. The chassis has been updated with a fully independent front suspension and the rear is a triangulated 4-link. Braking duties are handled by disc brakes at each corner hiding behind Ridler chrome wheels with Nitto high performance tires.
This little deuce coupe is a great blend between traditional styling and modern build techniques and technology. It is ready to be enjoyed on the open road or at your local cruise in!
