1932 Ford Pickup
Following in the tradition of previous Ford factory built Mustang race cars like the 1968 Cobra Jet, the Boss 429 and the FR500S Mustang Challenge car, Ford Racing and AAI started work on a production run of 50 Cobra Jet Mustangs in January 2010. Ford Racing built 50 Cobra Jet Mustangs at Ford vendor facilities.
One thing that the crew at Volo Auto Museum understands is that context is everything. They have gone the extra mile to display each movie car with memorabilia and signage that brings the scene to life. The museum features actual movie props such as Tom Cruise's racing seat from Days Of Thunder.
Classic Car Overview
1932 Ford Street Rod Pick Up
This truck comes from a family estate, in the family for about 6 years.
This truck is set up like a period hot rod from the 50's would be.
The Ford flat head V8 is running a bunch of Edmunds hop up parts, such as Edmunds free flow heads, dual carb set up running two Stromberg 2 barrels, Edmunds air filters and intake and a set of headers. A Borg-Warner 4 Speed manual trans sends power out to a chrome sprung Halibrand quick change rear end. The frame is a custom tube unit tucked inside stock looking boxed frame sides. The visor is molded in and the front clip and body are all metal. The rear fenders are fiberglass. The front axle, spring, shocks and the rear springs and shocks are all chromed. The front blinkers are hidden in the stainless cross-member.
Up front, a chrome drop axle supports Buick style finned drums and Denman Elegant Premium Sports tires in 6.00x15. Out back, a set of Universal 8.20x15 tires grip the road. and for extreme traction, a set of 8.20x15 Mickey Thompson pie crust slicks come with the truck.
The interior is in beautiful condition and is also a 50's era tuck and roll design with a custom overhead "console" and a leather headliner that matches the pattern and flow of the seats. The interior is in very good condition.
Out side the paint shows very well, however, the expected little nicks and chipped, garnered from years of going to shows, cruise nights etc can be found by the trained eye, overall she looks awesome.
With a turn of the key and a pull of the fuel pump switch and the choke, two pumps and she fires right up when cold and settles into a very nice rumble. The clutch catches easily and allows for very smooth shifts through the 4 speeds. She sounds great under heavy throttle and acceleration, handles well too. Granted, the 4 drum brakes can be a little twitchy but that's drums in general. At higher rpms she does cough a little and that may be a condition of sitting for about a year after the death of the owner, ethanol not liking to sit.
This is a very well built street rod pick up, and done in the 50's era style. Odometer shows 72,000 miles but it is unknown what the true mileage may be, it is believed to be lower than that.
She roars and rumbles and looks awesome, especially with her bright red paint and wide white walls, with black wheels and moon hub caps.
This truck would be welcome at pretty much any car show/cruise night and would gather onlookers immediately.
The truck is totally turn key, although she may need a little tuning if a tank of good high test gas and some BG treatment doesn't smooth her out.
It would cost easily twice the asking price of $48000 to build this truck the way she sits.
Any questions, for many more photos and video, to schedule a time to see her in person or to make an offer, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for the interest.
