If you've watched old-timey black-and-white movies from the Thirties and Forties, you'd no doubt recognize the Thirty-Two Ford. The continuation of Ford's hit series of affordable cars that started with the Model T, the 1932 Ford line-up encompassed the Model B, Model 18, and Model 40. Body styles included two- and four-door sedans, two-door coupes and cabriolets, and even a two-door pickup truck. This 1932 Ford 2-Door Sedan Restomod is a finely restored example with some modernizations that make it a great regular driver. What's more, it's said to have just 500 miles after its heart transplant.
Black is one of the most popular colors of the period; remember that Henry Ford said, "You can have it in any color as long as it's black" when referring to the Model T. So that's what you have here, but the red and white wheels with whitewall tires add some lightness and color. There's also dainty red pinstriping just beneath the window lines. You'll find all lighting and chromework to be near-original style as possible, indicating that this 1932 Ford 2-Door Sedan Restomod doesn't see much updating of the exterior. That's great for when you want to blend in with the classic crowd. Turn signals have been added discretely, which is a worthwhile upgrade to any classic car that gets driven regularly. Inside is where things get more varied. The current owner tells us that the dashboard is original, but the steering column and wheel are from a 1940 Ford. The rear seats also appear to be original, but the front seats, upholstered in a near-identical red fabric to the rears, are from a Pontiac Fiero. They've also got seat belts, which is a great safety upgrade. Looking further, we see an aftermarket tachometer to monitor the newer powerplant's revs, a newer foot-operated emergency brake, and some rubber floor mats. Music listening has also received a shot in the arm, thanks to four modern-era speakers and a Denon radio cassette head unit. However, period fittings such as the wind-up windows remain to preserve the classic ambiance of the car.
This 1932 Ford 2-Door Sedan Restomod will have originally come with Ford's Flathead V8 from the factory and mated to a three-speed manual transmission, but that's all gone now. In its place are a 327ci Chevy V8 and a GM automatic transmission for a more powerful and easier driving experience. We're also told that the front and rear suspension plus axle assembly are from a Jaguar. You've also got disc brakes on all four wheels for better stopping power.
