Chevy V-8, 377 cubic inch, 4 barrel carburetor
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 intact while making 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.
