6.2L V8 LS3
The 1932 Fords were the founding fathers of the hot-rodding movement. They were modified in endless ways from mild to wild. This 2-door sedan is a beautiful example that could be characterized as a Street and Strip oriented build. It is full of modern comforts in the interior, with state of the art engine and drivetrain components.
You might consider this car a sleeper. The body is nicely painted in classic black, but it stays fully dressed with its piano hinge hood in place, and still has all its fenders attached. By not being painted in bright colors or flames, it walks softly, but have no doubt, it carries a big stick. Up front, a bumper is something you don\'t see often on these cars, but might give you a little more confidence to actually take it to town and park it while running errands. The look is kept clean with a light-bars for the marker lights so, the grill, topped by a Ford badge, the headlights with their spreader bar, and the chrome strip running down the center of the hood are the focus of your attention. From the side, the silhouette is unmistakably \'32 Ford. The rake of the car is pretty aggressive though, and hints that there might be more to this car than just a nice-looking street rod.
Step inside this car and you are surrounded by a rich red interior. There are pleated bucket seats with matching door panels sporting only a handle and little power window switches. A four spoke steering wheel is mounted on a polished, tilt column. The dash looks traditional and simple, but is full of comfort and convenience items for your driving pleasure. Moon in-dash gauges keep track of engine functions, with the heating and A/C controls mounted on the lower dash. A Custom Autosounds stereo which is an iPod compatible, Bluetooth, radio/CD player, is mounted to the headliner and pumps the sound out through Pioneer speakers mounted front and rear. A pressure gauge and switch for the air ride suspension is located on the side of the driver\'s seat for easy access so its handy to adjust before getting serious about grabbing the shift knob of the 6-speed transmission and stirring it around aggressively.
And aggressive is a good description for the drivetrain on this car. The engine is a rompin stompin, 480 horsepower LS3 crate motor, shoehorned in, and barely concealed by that little hood. It breathes in through a free flow air filter. Then the stock fuel injection obviously gets the job done quite effectively, and it breathes out through Hooker long tube headers with cherry bomb style mufflers. An Airaid air topper with flat black valve covers matches the understated outside of the car and an aluminum radiator keeps things cool. The chassis is from TCI and provides a solid basis for keeping all that power under control. A Moroso brake booster does its job putting the clamps on 4-wheel disc brakes working through a Heidts super ride front end, and a Ford 9 rear with 4.30 posi gears and Stange axles. A four-link suspension with coil overs keeps everything held in place, even under power, and that power hits the ground through 245/70R17s. 155/80R15s keep things pointed in the right direction up front.
If you like the idea of a well-done street rod, with serious capability on tap, then come on down and check this one out. Then take it home. I would be a quick trip in this car.
