    Hey Gang
    Just received my 1932 Ford 3 window coupe. Its a victim of the 70's but with time and lots of love it will come back to a more traditional life. Rides on its original frame unboxed. Has the typical 350 with a tri-power and a muncie 4-speed. The guy who built it didn't drive it much and when he finally did he hit a deer and whipped out the front fenders and grille assembly. Has a rare Hurst/Airheart Magnesium disc brake setup which unfortunatly is hooked up to 49-53 Chevy spindles. I'm hoping they can be converted to a ford setup.

    That is awesome!! Not much needed to make it look more traditional. Nothing wrong with those Chevy spindles.. Those brakes are pretty cool too. Of course, having juice brakes wouldn't make it any less cool. :p What are your plans for it?

    Well I'm going to drive it like it is for now and slowly start making changes to it. I'm going to leave it unchopped. Probably will be fenderless with a fully covered engine. Original firewall put back but recessed. Front end will get all converted to a traditional Ford setup and rear not sure yet. Maybe 9" or a Banjo. Im wanting to run a 312 Ford out of a 1957 t-bird with a t-5 behind it. Those are some of my ideas!

    That is a great find, and the fact it has a stock unboxed frame is just a bonus!
    Good luck with the project!

    Whats wrong with a chevy spindle???? Anyway i'd trim that motor a little more traditional (or swap a 327 or 283) and call it a late '60s car, That is Bitchin as it is!!!

    Btw a light car like that has no need for a T-5, it's just extra shifts, I might change it to a wide ratio and gear the rear to match if i didnt like it, keep it muncie, after all t-5's will never be as cool as a muncie

    Think this car....
