Minty Fresh: Bob M's 1932 Three Window Ford Coupe Hot Rod
Words: Luke Ray Photography: Anthony Scott.
This stunning 1932 Ford coupe was built by Terry Stoker. After selling a couple of projects, Terry needed a new build and he had his sights firmly set on a chopped 3-window.
With timelines and cost in mind, Terry ordered a 4 ½” chopped Deuce body from Hannemann Fibreglass in Azusa, California.
After some prep work and the stunning Ford Nile Blue-Green was applied by R&A Body in Montclair California, Terry dropped the body onto a chassis with a Magnum dropped axle hung on a transverse spring and hairpins with ’40 Ford drum brakes.
There are Dodge shocks up front and a Ford nine-inch rear end on Pete & Jake’s ladder bars at the back.
The motor is a crate small block Chev, mated to a vintage Muncie four speed box. A neat added touch are the ‘60s era Corvette valve covers and induction.
The interior is 1960s GM green vinyl and cloth. Mark Lopez from Elegance Auto Interiors in Upland, California did a stunning job and it suits the car perfectly.
To add his own special touch to the inside, Terry mounted a set of Stewart-Warner gauges and added a 1965 Chevelle steering column and wheel combo.
Terry sold the coupe and current new owners are Bob M and his wife from Portland, Oregon.
Bob had been on the hunt for a coupe for some time and after his wife found this car online, they took the trip to California after buying the car without even looking at it.
It’s safe to say that they’re happy with how the deal turned out.
