If anybody is in the market to build one of the most iconic cars, check out this 1932 Ford 5-Window High Boy Original Henry Ford Steel Project. If interested in taking on a project to turn into your dream hot rod, StreetDreamsTexas is offering this '32 project car that would be perfect for someone mechanically inclined who would like to finish it to their liking instead of buying one already built to somebody else's specifications.
This project was owned by one person for about 20 years, and he was restoring it himself as time allowed. According to the seller, the vision was to turn this into a '50s High Boy 5-Window hot rod without fenders and a non-chopped roof. The Henry Ford steel body has no rust issues and features the original floorboards, doors, firewall, trunk lid, grille, headlights, garnish moldings, roof tack strips, seat frame and springs, latches, and window regulators. Also, he has a metal roof insert taken from a 1964 Corvair Monza coupe that is said to be a perfect fit. It sits on a custom-built frame by Blackboard Hot Rods from Bakersfield, California. Interestingly enough, the front wheels measure 15 inches and come from a '48 Mercury while the rear wheels also measure 15 inches and come from a 1953-1956 F100.
The engine he chose for the rebuild was a 1959 Chevrolet 283cui V8 engine with factory Power Pack heads and topped with a four-barrel carburetor. A new HD Walker radiator is also included that will keep temperatures in check once installed. Shifting would come from a '66 (or similar year) Ford Mustang synchronized 3-speed manual transmission connected to an enclosed driveshaft. A few of the components have been custom machined, and he incorporated an original 1939 shifter. Up front an original 1932 front axle was installed and dropped, and the rear axles have been converted to "Hot Rod Works" Ford 9-inch style axles. Stopping would come from 1939-1941 Ford backing plate with NOS drums, and the front brakes are reproduction Lincoln with backing plates, wheel cylinders, shoes and drums. The clutch assembly is from a '39 Ford, and the steering wheel is an original 1937 Banjo in excellent condition. Steering comes from a a'53 Ford F100 pickup with a NOS pitman arm.
