    Hello,

    What is not to like about a 1932 Ford from the rear angle photo? Let alone a chopped 3 window coupe? In red, with both suicide doors open? From back in 1959 at the dragstrip? What led me to film this coupe was the color. At the time, I wanted to show my brother a bright looking race car and this altered coupe fit the bill. It wasn’t the fastest race car, or the meanest sounding, but it just had the look of a race car. Would it be cool for the street?

    First the motor would have to be moved back to the usual place, not a 25% setback as per Altered Class rules. Then a nice street legal header system would be installed, along with moving the controls back to the stock location. That is a lot of work, but then the 1932 chopped Ford 3 window coupe would be one of the meanest looking hot rods anywhere.

    Add in an SBC motor with a couple of Paxton Centrifugal Superchargers and it is, “off to the races…” err… high school, the normal Friday night drive-in restaurant cruises, and the show/shine that takes place in the back row of the Friday night drive-in parking lots. One other topping event would be the weekend Cherry Avenue night time escapades...

    The funny thing is, as popular as a 32 coupe seems, in our teenage era, it was a rare animal sighting when one was seen somewhere. On our long road trips or weekend cruises down the coast in So Cal, we might have seen one, if any. But, they do look rather cool.
