As I was looking through my digital photo album I ran across some older pictures of your Humble Editors 1932 Ford five window coupe.
I have not done a ton of things to this car but it is amazing how the look and feel of a hot rod can change with rather simple modification. As a hot rod can be an extension of your personality so it is important to make it the way you like it.
Here is how it looked at one point:
Fenders made from ’36 Ford spare tire covers in the front, home made in the rear.
1956 Olds power plant.
OK, those slicks has to go and so does the drag race “high in the nose” look.
Dropped original heavy axle and Firestones pie crust tireas changes the car completely.
Loosing those silly numbers on the side certainly helped to clean up the car.
At this point I started to like the car but something was still missing…
Aha! A hood! Yup, that added greatly to the lines. It completes the car and it flows great. Mmmm…something is still missing!
Yes, that’s it. Fenders. It puts the old back in to the car. This just shows how versitile the 1932 Ford is. It can be built in many ways and look great.
This car is now sold and Your Humble Editor is looking for something new and fun, Well, something old and fun. Like a 1937 Ford cabriolet. Know of any? Let me know.
