Leather Seats, Front Disc Brakes, AM/FM Radio, Cassette Player, Tilt Wheel, Coil-Over Suspension, Seatbelts Pop the Dzus fasteners on the hood and you’ll find that the Ford 289 cubic inch V8 looks hot rod perfect thanks to a pair of 4-barrel Edelbrocks on an aluminum intake. There’s a lot of chrome, but even more bright yellow paint, including the Thrust finned valve covers, the block itself, and even things like the vacuum advance on the distributor. It’s properly tuned and the twin carbs acquit themselves well on the hot small block, giving it lightning-quick throttle response. The C4 3-speed automatic makes it easy to drive and there’s a quick-change rear end out back that should be standard equipment on every ’32 Ford hot rod. The frame was color-matched to the bodywork save for the chrome front suspension, which is a dropped I-beam on trailing arms. Front disc brakes, a burbling dual exhaust system, and a discreetly mounted transmission cooler all help if you want to drive it. Staggered chrome steelies with baby moon hubcaps are the right choice and they wear 195/60/14 front and 235/70/15 rear whitewall radials.
