Supercharged 1932 Ford Coupe 700 HP 392 Hemi V8 Hot Rod

I thought you would like a look at this awesome 1932 Ford Three Window Coupe. The body of the car is an Outlaw fiberglass shell, but the fenders are molded into one piece and are removable. The headlights have stands under the fenders for a Hi-Boy setup. With these additions you may transform the car into what style you like without any fabrication. The major ticket item the 32′ Ford offers is the engine. Under the hood, you will notice a stainless steel polished firewall featuring a blown 392 Hemi V8 pushing over 700hp. Behind the engine is a 727 TorqueFlite automatic transmission. The hood and radiator grill are molded into one piece with a handmade stainless insert and a 55′ Thunderbird scoop. 4″ stainless steel exhaust with new handcrafted stainless steel welded and polished headers. Other options include: AM/FM Radio, Cassette, Hub Caps, Power Locks, Power Windows, Tilt Wheel, Keyless Entry, Leather Interior, White Wall Tires, and Chrome Aluminum/Alloy Wheels. The dash board is made up of hand carved walnut. The walnut gauge bezels are angled to the driver and look phenomenal. The 392 Hemi offers: 440 6-pack connecting rods, blower pistons, high volume oil pump, Mallory ignition, performance racing ported & polished cylinder heads, and a 6-71 GMC blower. The drivetrain has just 1000 miles since rebuilt. The exterior of the car is coated in a black paint with blue pearl overlay. The paint also offers candy flames running the length of the body. The body sits on an original 32′ frame and has been boxed with 1/4″ plate. The car also has a Bell front axle and front disc brakes. You have to have some serious braking power to stop 700 hp. If you are looking to bring back nostalgic feelings look no further. Thanks for checking it out!

1932 Ford Hot Rod Coupe 302 V8

 

I thought you’d like a look at this freshly built 1932 Ford Hot Rod Coupe. It’s powered by a 302 V8 with an Edelbrock intake, 4 BBL carb, and coated headers. All the power is sent through a C4 Automatic trans to a 9″ Ford rear with adjustable coil over shocks.  This is a truly quality build throughout.  It has covered less than 1,000 miles since it was built and still looks like new.  I hope you find it interesting….thanks for watching!
