1932 Ford Roadster BLACK WIDOW

Well, I saw so many '32 fords here I felt like I needed to join in on the fun.

I went through a period where i just loved big wheels and rubberband tires. So this ol' gal got the works.

I raised thr front fenders for the bigger tires and re-shaped them back to stock.

The back fenders got the same treatment of raising and enlarging them to accommodate the huge rear tires. I also modified the body to accept the new larger fenders.

The body was streched a bit, the doors and trunk were opened, and a leather interior was added along with a duval windshield and as much chrome as I could add to contrast the shiney black paint.

I hope it fits in with the other 32's here. She sure was fun to build.

Dave, nice clean build. Your fit and finish is terrific, as usual. Although the wheels are not my style I appreciate the work it must have taken to get it all to fit.

I've seen this one before and I'm always drawn to the cowl and "cockpit" area as well as the rear 3/4 view. The depth and richness of the paint shows on the rear deck making the opening trunk all the more impresive in its fit and finish. And I've always dug the raked V-screen and high bolster seat treatment. It gives the whole car a hunkered down stance that complements those big wheels. As you say, Cool!

Thanks Bernard.

I tried to give this a JESSE JAMES vibe to it. i could see him in this wearing his leather newsboy snap cap, all hunckered down, although probably not everyone here is into him Angry - LOL
