1932 Ford Phaeton

small logo
1932 Ford Phaeton
Ford Phaeton Convertible

Vehicle Type:

Ford "Phaeton"

Year Built:

1932

Built By:

Ford

Suspension:

Cross Sprint Front and Rear

Engine:

Chevy V-8, 377 cubic inch, 4 barrel carburetor

History:

This is another example of the 1932 Fords designed by Edsel Ford.  The body and chassis design of the "deuces" made them extremely popular in future years with "hot rodders" and "street rodders" and are still extremely popular to this day.

This particular "Phaeton" was "hot rodded" by Junior Kurtz, who, besides adding a Chevy engine and late model running gear, kept this original all steel body in tact but made subtle customizing changes such as molding out the exterior door handles, splitting and butter-flying the hood, chopping the top and adding a dropped axle to give the car the lowered rake appearance he desired.
