32 Ford 3-Window Street Rod Is Done...Again!
Posted by mrmike on Saturday, January 02, 2016 11:51 AM

This is my '32 Ford 3-Window Street Rod painted with Testors One Coat Lacquer Flaming Orange.  The engine has been wired and I added an ignition coil.  The headlight bar was replaced with a headlight bar from a '30 Ford Touring since I liked the headlight shape better and the rear taillights where replaced with a set from my parts box.  The suspension has been lowered slightly.

Nice '32 you've got there, Mike.  Those headlights you swapped in look good.  Glad to see the rumble from this baby still comes from a Ford powerplant. Cool

Thanks Tony!  I've got the '32 5-Window Coupe that I plan on using the 392 Hemi in.  Now there is some serious rumble!!!

So the story here goes like this...I had these wheels and tires on my '32 Ford Highboy Roadster and I swapped them for a set of Zimmermanz Cragar SS wheels and wide tires.  While I was building my Bullitt '68 Mustang, I needed a set of the smaller front American Racing wheels and tires to go with a set of front wheels and tires that I got from a fellow Club member.  The '32 3-Window Street Rod sat on the shelf for over a month without front wheels and tires until I got the idea to use the wheels and tires from the '32 Ford Highboy Roadster on the '32 Ford 3-Window Street Rod.  With all that said and done, I went and updated the pictures on this thread and added a few more here on the end.

Thank you Rob!  I appreciate the nice words!

Yes, there is more than what I have mentioned.  The suspension has been lowered a bit, I tried to "blue" the chrome headers a little, the taillights came from my parts box as I wanted something different, the headlight bar came from Revell '30 Ford Model A Touring Street Rod, wired 302 CI motor w/orange plug wires, light tan interior and a Lokar style floor shifter for the C4 auto trans.
