Everybody loves 1932 Fords, but not everybody is willing to admit it.
Yogi Berra, the great baseball catcher, is famous for his incongruous quotes. One of or favorite is "Nobody goes to that restaurant anymore, because iIt's too crowded." That’s the same kind of topsy-turvy reasoning we hear from some street rodders when they talk about 1932 Fords. “Nobody likes Deuces anymore—there are just too many of them being built.”
That statement, along with the other common saying that there are more 1932 Fords on the road today than were produced by Henry Ford, is just one of the paradoxes that keeps this hobby interesting.
Don’t tell anybody, but we happen to love ’32s. In addition to the timelessly classic lines, we love the way that street rodders have taken this single year design and interpreted in thousands of imaginative ways—as restorations, traditional rods, high tech smoothies, race cars, rat rods, and everything in between. to smoothie. Whether it’s a roadster, coupe, sedan, Vickys, phaetons, or one of the many other body styles, the diversity is remarkable. We recently went through some of our photos from the past several years and assembled this random assortment of ‘32s. In spite of the saying that “nobody likes Deuces inymore,” we think there may be at least a few in this gallery that you will like. And maybe even one or two that you’ll love. Take a look.
