We couldn’t tell you how many times we’ve heard of a model car inspiring a person to build the real thing. Well look out because this is one of those cars! There’s a reason that 1932 Ford coupes are so popular – they just look so damn cool. Load it with horsepower and bolt on some bigs and littles and you have all of the makings of an mind blowing hot rod that never goes out of style.
This latest offering from ACME exhibits all of the things to love about hot rodding. Once you get past the melt-in-your-mouth Butterscotch Yellow finish, it’s those mighty zoomie headers that smack you in the eyeballs. They’re hung off the most classic of engines – a supercharged Chrysler hemi, plumbed and wired for twin carbs and a magneto. Old school cool continues with hairpins, drilled front axle and finned brake drums, while the spindle mount front runners and those polished 5 hole mags with slicks scream out ‘Race me!’ Swing open the suicide doors to reveal a four spoke tiller, black tuck and roll and a Hurst shifter. Yeah, you bet there’s three pedals!
