Car Spotlight: 1932 Ford Hot Rod

I love cars. Especially custom cars. So when I see nicely-built cars, like this one, I'm intrigued.

.

It's not an unusual thing to see customized early 1930's Fords at car shows. In fact, they are quite possibly one of the most commonly customized cars in America. They come in a huge variety of styles, colors and such. This one, however, caught my eye.

.
I saw this at a recent cruise-in, and I immediately walked over to it. The first thing I noticed was the lack of chrome. No chromed suspension bits, no chrome wheels, not even a chromed grille.

.

I love the clean look of the grille. The lack of badging, chrome trim and original radio caps.

.


There's just something about minimal chrome on a hot rod that is Awesome to me. I'm not a huge fan of excessive chrome or "Engine Bay Dress-Up" parts.

.


The Small-Block Chevy V8 (Likely a 350), while not a Ford powerplant, is a common swap into these old Fords.

I'll wrap this post up with an interior shot. The Faux-woodgrain wheel ties it all together. Thanks for reading. Be sure to check back often for more content.
