More than 80 years since introduction, the 1932 Ford, alternatively and lovingly known for generations simply as “The Deuce,” ranks among, if not at the top, of a myriad of lists of the most important automobiles ever produced anywhere in the world. A landmark car for Ford and the inspired answer to the many critics who had written off the Ford Motor Company as the “Flivver Car Company” in reference to the legendary but hopelessly outdated Model T and the evolutionary Model A of 1928-1931, the ’32 Fords introduced Henry Ford’s groundbreaking V-8 engine, bringing strong V-8 power to the masses. Massive production numbers, legendary durability, and relatively low cost made it the ideal base material for legions of early hot rodders and the foundation for the aftermarket performance industry.
The influence of “The Deuce” continues even stronger today; despite massive total production numbers, few Sedan Deliveries were built and far fewer exist today. Writing at the eve of the 1932 Ford’s 75th Anniversary, Robert Genat stated in his definitive book, “Deuce: 75 Years of the ’32 Ford,” that the last Deuce body style to go into production was the useful yet elegant Sedan Delivery. Ford built them by converting Tudor sedans, with the quarter-window glass replaced and a large rear door installed with a drip rail added above it. Experts report that Ford built just 400 examples in period, plus an additional six for export markets, making these utilitarian three-door cars the rarest of ’32 Ford models to have been produced of all available body styles sold to the public.
Offered for sale without reserve and to be sold to the highest bidder, this outstanding 1932 Ford Sedan Delivery custom features an all-steel body, fenders, and one-piece roof with a 3-inch chop, riding on a modern-generation TCI frame with a concealed battery and cut-off switch, brake-proportioning valve, fuel pump, and brake and fuel lines for a truly sanitary appearance to match the rest of the car. In addition to precise rack-and-pinion steering, other outstanding features include power 4-wheel Wilwood disc brakes, an emergency brake,windshield wiper, and Vintage air and heat. In addition to the custom lifting configuration, the hood handsomely equipped with a stainless-steel radiator grille.
A GM ZZ 383 stroker engine provides outstanding power output with Edelbrock fuel injection, with power delivered to the road with a GM 700R4 overdrive automatic transmission and 9-inch Ford rear-end assembly. Modern underpinnings include a Kugel front suspension and adjustable coilover shocks mounted front and rear. Directional control is provided by a tilt steering column with a Budnik steering wheel. Excellent features and custom tweaks include smoked glass, hidden hinges on all doors with remote door openers, power windows, Halogen headlights, and flush-mounted tail and turn-signal lamps. The leather-upholstered interior is equipped with wool carpeting and VDO gauges, plus a killer MTX 10-speaker stereo system, which delivers the tunes in the unlikely event you grow tired of the note provided by the engine’s stainless-steel headers and dual exhaust system. Only 980 miles have been tacked on since being built and the undercarriage is as nice as the top on the car. Riding on grippy Nitto performance tires surrounding a set of Budnik wheels, this stunning “No Reserve” Deuce is ready for you to enjoy and show!
