Car enthusiasts will now be able to get behind the wheel of their own 1932 Ford five-window coupe through a new licensed product offering from Ford Component Sales.
Ford’s restoration parts program is now offering the steel body shell, which premiered at the 2013 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, and is made by United Pacific Industries.
Stamped from new metal, and welded and assembled with state-of-the-art fixtures to maintain dimensional integrity, the finished body receives a black EDP rust-preventative coating for additional protection. It includes the hardwood inner structure, both doors with door latches, and a hinged deck lid. The firewall and dash are sold separately.
“With the 1932 Ford 5-Window Coupe body shell, you can literally build a classic-looking hot rod, ordering Ford restoration parts right from your computer, and avoid visiting a wrecking yard,” said Dennis Mondrach, restoration licensing manager, Ford Component Sales.
“Ford Racing can supply crate motors and performance products to suit any appetite,” said Mondrach. “Most of the parts needed to complete a build – including hardware, drivetrain, interior parts, even instruments with classic or customized faces – are available. You can build your car as a classic, or upgrade the components and build your own version of an icon that was part of the cruising culture in the 1950s and 1960s. You choose.”
