Nearly 80 years after its introduction, the 1932 Ford remains a true American cultural phenomenon that shows no signs of fading away. The 1932 Ford Tudor Sedan featured here displays a very attractive “restification” by The Hot Rod Garage of Denton, Maryland, completed approximately four years ago. With its classic bodylines left intact, the Tudor features a chopped and filled roof with louvered hood side panels, bathed in a rich Cinnamon Metallic paint finish. The hot rod stance comes courtesy of a dropped front axle and a set of “big ’n little” polished Halibrand-style wheels, with B.F. Goodrich Radial T/A tires.

Underhood, the highly detailed 350-cubic inch Chevrolet crate motor is topped with a Moon EFI fuel injection unit that includes machined throttle bodies duplicating the appearance of period Stromberg “97” carburetors. In addition, the jet-coated tubular exhaust headers add an additional dose of performance.

With style and performance covered, a modern GM Turbo Hydra-Matic 700R4 automatic overdrive transmission, Vintage Air and a Sony 460-watt stereo system provide comfortable cruising, while vital functions are monitored by a set of gauges by Classic Instruments mounted within an engine-turned insert panel. The stunning interior also features a 1940 Ford two-spoke steering wheel and a pair of Ferrari front seats, which are trimmed in beige leather upholstery, as are the highly detailed door panels and kick panels. From its expert construction to its fine bodylines and subtle details, this 1932 Ford Tudor represents the perfect blend of classic hot rod style, drivability and modern technology.
