    i have always wanted a 5w since i was a kid but could never afford it at the age of 23 i finally stumbled across a 32 ford 5w coupe body and using a good amount of the parts from my existing 35 ford pickup project, im looking to be in good shape... im planning on building it as a real traditional high boy that sits pretty low on stock rails without channeling the body. soo far the parts list is looking real good!

    body needs all the lower patches but it came with a nice lower cowl and subrails to the end of the rocker panels pictures bellow. nice deck lid, firewall and windshield frame too.

    frame:
    32 american stamping rails
    original 32 k member
    model a front crossmember
    original 40 rear crossmember flattened
    ross cowl steering box
    original 40 truck column
    original 40 standard steering wheel
    original 32 pedal assembly
    original chrome all metal pedal pads

    front suspension:
    32 unsplit bones
    32 mor drop heavy axle
    32 spring reversed
    32 perch pins
    32-34 spindles
    mt car products lincoln backing plates for 32 spindles
    36 wide 5 drums

    rear suspension:
    37 rear bones
    37 ford bells
    48 columbia two speed had it shortened richie willett with a 37 bell
    37 rear spring
    40 backing plates
    37 wide 5 drums
    48 tube shock mounts

    drivetrain:
    59L block
    4 1/8" offset ground merc crank
    3 3/8" nos jahns pistons for 4 1/8" stroke
    S109 grind Harman Collins cam shaft
    Osiecki racing heads
    Thickstun pm7 2x2 high rise
    2x stromberg large logo 97s
    12v gen
    39 top loader fully rebuilt by richie willett
    16" 36 bent spoke motor wires in front with 450/475-16 coker firestones
    17" 32 bent spoke motor wires in rear with 600/650-17 coker firestones
    Ended up getting a set of 37 wide fives with really nice drums. So I'm going to a 750-16 Coker Firestone in the rear and staying with my 450/475-16 Coker firestones in the front
    thats all i can remember for now...

    heres when i first bought the body (11/26/2011)

    Great start! I really like to see bodies blasted before work gets started. What is the deal with the cut up cowl? If you don't plan on using the cowl vent can I get first refusal on it? Merry Christmas! Bob

    Thats pretty much how my Five window looked when I strated building it for my wife. Its great to see another old Hot Rod Deuce body getting saved instead of collecting dust.

    :
    Most likely cut the hole for a gasoline filler neck. I have seen a LOT of 32's done that way.

    CONGRATULATIONS on the 32 5W. :D
     
  17. This should be good. Nice parts list!

    a guy passed away that had the body since the 70s and his son was selling it because he didnt have the time/place to finish the car.

    forgot i had a picture of the columbia! this is before the bell was swapped to a 40 end. from weld to weld it tapers now instead of having the step in the tube

    looking good my man! Great to see another 32 5W get resurrected. We're pretty much at the same point in regards to body's. I'll be learning and watching as you pass me by light years!

    so today in my travels i managed to pick up some stuff for the 32! picked up some f100 shock mounts off billy belmonts rod and custom then i stopped in up at dave simards shop and purchased some real nice dent free 682-j guides for the project they need glass beading and paint but other than that real nice.

    Doesn't look like you have any trouble making your mind up on what parts it's gonna take to make it your way, that's half the battle in the build!
