ACME Southern Speed & Marine 1932 Ford 5W Coupe 1:18
Henry Ford knew little of what he had done when the first 1932 Ford rolled off of his production line. The flathead Ford V8 beneath its hood would mark the beginning of a revolution, but with dry lakes and drag racing growing at an incredible rate throughout the 1950s, hot rodders would always be on the lookout for engines that were bigger, stronger and faster. From the 1960s through to the present, every conceivable engine has found its way between the rails of a little deuce coupe.
A young hot rodder with some extra cash might have been seen behind the wheel of a 1932 Ford five window coupe like this one. With a preference for performance over appearance, the exhaust stained and rubbed through paint is indicative of a hot rod that has been driven hard. The six carb-equipped Buick nailhead V8 dumps through lakester style headers with a bark that equals its bite. Bare bones interior with lightened aluminium door cards and white wall slicks scream salt or strip, name your poison.
