1932 Ford 5-Window Coupe PROJECT. Mock up stage - not running.
(Comes with an active 1932 Ford Coupe FL Title)
This car started out as a bare fiberglass body and perimeter frame from DK Rods, Port Richey FL (out of business now). They channelled the body to the frame and bobbed the rear horns.
The front suspension has a Chassis Engineering forged I-beam axle, Pete&Jake 4-link with extra long chrome moly links and custom spring mount. (Axle is moved in front of grille.) P&J multi-leaf spring. Brakes are original Buick finned aluminum with Wilson Welding finned backing plates. Superbell steering arms with Ford tie rods. Pan hard bar, P&J shocks with F1 mounts.
Side steering with drag-link, ford tie rods, schroeder torsion arm made into pitman arm, attached to a schroeder torsion bar (to be used as extension of pitman shaft in 60's Mopar steering box). Box is coupled to Speedway column with quick release. All parts still lose - not permanently installed! (see pic)
Rear suspension has a Chassis Engineering triangular 4-link, narrowed ford 9" housing with backing plates. Center section has rebuilt OEM trac loc with new steel and friction discs. 3.23 OEM Ford gears, all new bearings/seals/shims, ready to be assembled. No brakes, no axles, no coil overs!
Wheels are Vintiques 16X6. Tires are dry rotted - only used for chassis set-up.
The frame center section was custom fabricated with drop out for transmission. Custom built engine mounts and rear section to clear suspension.
The drive train is raised in chassis so oil pan is not sitting below frame rails. The water pump/fan is centered in radiator.
The motor is a standard rebuilt GM 350 short block with flat top pistons and L79 cam. Heads are fresh Vortec take-off from our local GMPP and engine builder. Intake is Edelbrock with Vintage Speed carb adapter and 2 Rochester 2CG. The engine is mocked up and needs final assembly! Some valve train parts (pushrods, lifters etc.), head gaskets...Have balancer, Flywheel, Oil pan and intake gaskets. Also included a variety of polished stainless engine bolts.
Bell housing is GM #383 for 10.5" clutch (no clutch)
Transmission housing and shifter are in chassis. Gears are in box - not complete. Needs input shaft, synchro assembly, and a couple gears/rebuild kit.(see pic) Have a 63 Corvette drive shaft to be fitted/modified.
Pete&Jake Brake-Clutch pedal assembly with modified pedals.
Custom built transmission and driveshaft tunnel, raised rear floors and relocated rear wheel arches. '50 Pontiac tail lights with glass lenses, '63 Cobra tag light and Competition fuel cap fitted to left rear quarter.
Radiator is from Walker, Grille shell is steel, chopped and reinforced for headlight mounting. Stainless rods to firewall and lacing for grille and cowl in box.
Doors and trunk are un-assembled. Have Wescott brass door hinges and their hotrod trunk hinges. Bearclaw latches and pins.
Seats (with tracks) are out of a 63 Corvette - no mounting provisions yet.
There is no steel structure inside. Doors and trunk need to be installed. No glass/tracks etc. Steering box/column needs be mounted. No gas tank or battery mount.
This has been a long term / part time project of mine. Ever increasing distractions keep me from progressing, to the point, where I'd rather see someone who actually has the time, to work on it. I'm trying to be as open an transparent in my description as possible.
Buyer is responsible for shipping/transport. Location is Punta Gorda, Southwest Florida.
If you're not inclined to do fabrication work or do not have access to anyone who does - this is NOT the project for you. Sorry
I would highly recommend personal inspections. Please ask any questions BEFORE you commit yourself by bidding. My asking price reflects less than half of my expenses, as I'm hoping to find an equally happy new owner. Happy to entertain reasonable offers.
This car is for sale locally also.
Thank you for your consideration.
