1932 Ford 3W Coupe

This '32 3W fiberglass streetrod was a joint effort between Ed's Rod Shop and US-Autoteile in Unterhaid, Germany. The aim was to build a reliable daily driver rod. Featuring a 350SBC and a TH350 automatic transmission. The rear axle used was a late Fox type Mustang with a limited slip diff. We found that a C6 Corvette aluminium driveshaft fitted right in with no shortening required. The Corvette driveshaft is made of aluminium and polishes up to a great shine. Despite being a modern streetrod we went for a late fifties style and fitted the car with reproduction Dodge Lancer hupcaps and trimmed out the interior with black tuck 'n' roll.
