You're probably thinking, what the fuck.
What looks to be a 1932 Ford 3 window coupe is actually not even a Ford at all. This amazing build by @mad_32lsx is strictly Chevy powered.
The project first began one year ago, with a 32 Ford fibreglass body and a Corvette C4 chassis and frame. The frame was then narrowed and extended 10 inches to match the dimensions of the body. "The most difficult part of the project has been modifying the frame and welding the roll cage together," he says.
The build features an assortment of customized components fabricated by @mad_32lsx himself, including aluminum seats, a 50-litre fuel cell, and newly built headers. As well, minor suspension modifications have been made that add to the look of the car.
"I dropped the leaf spring ends under the control arm and put a bolt through it to adjust the ride height. The car sits about 3 inches lower now," he explains.
The 2200lbs hot rod will be powered by a 650 horsepower LS7. The stock cylinder heads have been hand-ported and milled 0.030 inches for a bump in compression ratio, and a Lingenfelter GT21 camshaft (243/259 112 LSA) was selected for the application.
"I still need to finish the headers, install the wiring harness, fuel lines, and radiator. Then I just have to lower the body back into the chassis and it is pretty much done. I expect to have it running before summer," he says.
A project like this is definitely worthy of respect, whether you are a Ford or Chevy fan. The car was entirely built by him and his father in their garage, and he says he fully intends on taking it to the racetrack upon completion.
