In a world that is full of contrasting opinions regarding just about everything, it is amazing when even a few of us can come together to agree on anything. Religion, politics, sports teams, streaming networks... there's no point even trying to change someone's mind. But, once in a while, something comes along that almost no one can disagree with. One of those things is this 1932 Ford 5-Window Coupe, which is the original, quintessential hot rod.
Based on John Miner's historically memorable American Graffiti coupe, this car was made to be an even better cruiser than the car it was modeled after. The Downs fiberglass body was fully repainted in what we can only call "Graffiti Yellow," complemented by a tastefully done grey and white interior. Comfy bucket seats, a tilt steering wheel, and provisions for air-conditioning give this car staying power even on the longest of road trips.
Pop open the steel engine side panels to reveal a 5.7-liter small block Chevy V-8. An Edelbrock aluminum intake and matching Edelbrock four-barrel carb send power into the block and out through a set of shorty-style headers. That power then gets channeled through a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission and out to a nine-inch Ford Positraction rear end.
The solid axle front-end suspension works in conjunction with a four-link adjustable coil-over in the rear and a reinforced chassis to give this '32 Ford a solid feeling ride over any road. Fifteen-inch American Racing rims sit shod in true hot rod fashion, with skinny 165/60R-15 rubber up front while big 275-60R-15s sit out back. Hidden behind those great-looking wheels are a set of power disc brakes up front and power drums at the rear.

With its bright yellow finish and polished chrome accents all around, this 1932 Ford 5-Window Coupe sits as the perfect tribute to one of the most iconic hot rods, and hot rod movies of all time, and that is something we can all agree on.
