1932 Ford Dearborn Deuce
Perfect! What else can we say? This 1932 Ford Dearborn Deuce is one of those top of the line cars that makes just writing this ad a bit daunting. There is no doubt we will leave some features out because everywhere you look there is something new to discover. The car combines modern features with traditional styling to create a 1 of a kind Hot Rod that is unmatched by most others out there. The current owner originally drove the all steel bodied car in flat .....
Black paint powered by a Chevy 350. He then had it redone with the thought of stepping it up a notch or two to make it a little higher quality than it was before. Well that notch or 2 became 10 notches really fast! The result is a beautiful work of art in the form of a 32 Ford. It was created by Don Dillard at Highway 99 Hot Rods in Tulare, CA. He is a very well known builder in the Hot Rod community and made his mark before even opening shop with a home built Suede 30 Ford.
The body is a Dearborn Deuce which is considered among the highest quality bodies out there available. Their construction is top of the line and of course, all steel. They also incorporate a custom panel to house the folding top which is very unique for a 32 Roadster. No more having to decide on top or no top before you leave the garage. This car is laser straight and painted in a beautiful 3 stage Crystal Red paint which is a color applied to Camaros between 2010 and 2015. It looks perfect on the car. To accent the car further it received the perfect touches of chrome like the So Cal swan neck mirrors, Limeworks Speed Shop traditional headlight bar, and a Vintique 32 Ford grille. In order to get the perfect stance the frame rails were lengthened 2 inches which extended the wheel base and made room for a larger motor. The louvered Rootlieb hood was lengthened to match as well and accented by a McMillan Rod & Custom stainless strip for the perfect traditional touch. The headlights are a Guide 682-C set up from OTB gear and the buckets are painted to match. They utilize top mounted turn signals and chrome rings. The taillights are from a 37 Ford and custom mounted on the frame. Features like that are so well thought out and those small details work together to make an incredibly clean look. You wouldn't think taillight positioning could make a big difference, but believe us, it does. The Tan top was created by Ron Mangus who used English Everflex vinyl which is used on British luxury and sports cars. As mentioned before the top cleanly folds away and is hidden in an panel behind the seat. Keeping with its traditional influence the car rides on Big N Little blackwall tires. The ET wheels by Team III suit the car perfectly and are wrapped with Hoosier radial tires. The wheels are 16x11 in rear and 15x6 in front. The tires are 31x12.50R16 in rear and 25x7.50R15 in front.
As mentioned before the frame and hood were lengthened to accommodate a larger motor because this 32 Ford is now sporting a 5.7L LS6. It is crazy to think that what powers the 2004 Corvette Z06 is now propelling this 1932 Ford down the road. The LS motors are known for performance and this one runs just as it should. Not only does it perform well it looks so clean with the custom accents packed on. Chrome is everywhere you look but it also wears a custom air cleaner and intake combo piece created by Highway 99 Hot Rods. It is painted to match the car and is accented with mesh screens and McMillan stainless strips. This piece is truly 1 of a kind and looks perfect. On each side of the motor are Billet Specialties ribbed coil covers which almost give the appearance of valve covers. These are accented with the same mesh as the air cleaner to create a very cohesive look. This also cleanly incorporates short Red MSD wires. This is the type of engine that wasn't just dropped in to make the wheels turn. It was thought out and designed to be a show piece as well as a performer. It has custom shorty headers that feed into 2 1/2 inch stainless exhaust with Magnaflow mufflers which deliver the perfect sound. The firewall has a smooth mirror like finish and is where you will find the chrome Steer Clear system. Paired with the motor is a 4L60E automatic transmission that was built by Monster Transmissions out of Florida. The front and rear end are both from Kugel which is probably the best set up you can have. Not only for their performance and reliability but their look as well. The rear end features inboard disc brakes with drilled/slotted rotors and Billet coilovers. Looking at the undercarriage you will find it is just as beautiful as the top of the car. Get those mirrors cleaned up because you are definitely going to want to show it off. Don't let that scare you off from driving it though because the current owner built this car to be top of the line but also to be driven and enjoyed. It is very reliable and runs down the road very well.
Just when you thought the car couldn't get any better just take a look at the Ron Mangus interior. It is absolutely beautiful. The Tan leather was the perfect choice and the layout of the seats, console, door panels, etc is just perfectly done. Ron Mangus is well known in the industry for his unique and creative designs. From the leather down to the square weave carpet it is in immaculate condition. The center console features push buttons and knobs for the keyless ignition, power windows, headlights and all of those types of features. This cleans up the dash nicely which is topped with Classic Instruments V8 Speedster series gauges that have been color matched to the car. They are mounted in a So Cal panel that has a marbleized Red pick guard overlay. That same type of accent was applied to the Lokar shifter knob, shifter mount and even the AC vents. Above the push buttons on the console is a Pioneer audio system to deliver all your favorite tunes. In front of the driver sits a chrome Flaming River column topped of with a matching leather wrapped Banjo steering wheel.
This car has a ton going on and there is undoubtedly features we left out. Every time you look at this car you will find something new you haven't seen before. You will never find another 32 quite like this one.
There is no way you could replicate this car for $137,500.00!
