354 Hemi in my 32.
I cut the hood sides to make it fit.
My 32 Cabriolet
Are those 'Hot Heads' headers? Love the
Yeah, it's a HEMI... Overbored 325 with a T5
Nice touch on the lights,..
The headers are Hedman from PAW.
This is not mine either, but belongs to Hamb'r: Billshari. Bill and I been doing allot of "sorting" on this one since he picked it up last year. Motor is 354 industrial, 3-97's and a 5spd. I Drove this from Orlando to Key West back in April and was very surprised how nice it rode, did not get the least bit hot and actually had decent fuel mileage. Crappy chrome alternator gave out 2hrs into the trip, had to change it at a friends house. Fun trip otherwise.
p.s. that 33 Desota project is a nice change of pace.
That is exactly how I want two do my next project copying the one in the Henry Ford Museum.
my sedan with "spanish hemi"
Dan...I know that's a high mileage motor too!!
I got the idea from the Dick Smith 32 Roadster article, in the October 1988 issue of American Rodder.
A very talented Hot Rodder who built his classic Hemi powered 32 Roadster in 1951, and drove it until the Henry Ford Museum talked him into selling it for display in their museum.
Here is my 32 Ford, 354, tremec 5sp. winters QC.
we take it out for a spin from time to time.
Thanks Big "R"
This is the best we could manage, didn't want the hood sides simply cut, but definately wanted a full hood on the Deuce. Dave down at Custom Auto came up with a nice treatment to satisfy the dilema.
The Coupe looks Ten feet longer with the hood on versus it removed.
I wish i had some pics to post. My next project to start on once my BSA is finished is a 31 Ford coupe with a 341 DeSoto hemi. I can't wait to get started.
I don't know who's car this is but it looks right.
Here is a couple of pics of my dads 34 dodge fourdoor turned twodoor with a 270 dodge hemi. it will have multiple carburation when finished
