There is no more classic design than the 1932 Ford, the legendary ‘Deuce,’ and it is especially renowned in hot rod and street rod form. Numerous interpretations of the car have been produced over the years, most often using Chevrolet small-block V-8 power. It is rare indeed to find one with authentic Ford performance power, albeit from a much different, later, muscular era.

The full steel-bodied coupe offered here is based upon a boxed Stage III custom frame produced by Cornhusker Rod and Custom, with a Heidts independent rear suspension, independent front suspension, stainless control arms, rack-and-pinion steering, and power-assisted four-wheel disc brakes fed through stainless lines. Under the hood is a 351 Ford Cobra V-8 with Edelbrock Performer RPM intake and carburetor, Holley electric pump, and a C4 automatic transmission sending power to a nine-inch Ford rear axle, and coated headers, as well as a chrome-finished starter, alternator, and shocks, and pulleys custom-machined out of billet aluminum.

The body and steel fenders are finished in a rich, deep period-correct red, with chromed headlights and wheel covers with chromed “beauty rings” and center caps, shod in whitewall radial tires. The interior is beautifully finished, with excellent full leather upholstery, leather-wrapped banjo steering wheel, engine-turned dashboard with white-faced nostalgia-style gauges, air conditioning, and wonderful attention to detail. Everything has a wonderful, subtle appearance, without shouting out the performance of the drivetrain beneath. With only 67.9 miles recorded since the build, it is a fabulous presentation with exceptional build quality, and sure to be the great success of any cruise night or custom show that the new owner attends.
