It’s entirely steel, including a rather rare 25-vent hood that greatly aids cooling, and the car was refinished to concours standards about 20 years ago.

To answer your first question, no it isn’t a convertible. This is what Ford Motor Company called a “Sport Coupe,” model B-50, which means a cloth top that only looks like it should fold like a cabriolet’s. 1932 was the final year for the cloth-topped Sport Coupe and production volume was incredibly low with only 2911 being built. While we all know the usual 3-window coupe is a hot-rodding staple, showing up in this beautifully built Sport Coupe is to be the star of the show. With a small block Chevy V8, a high-quality interior, beautiful bodywork, and enough miles to work the kinks out, it’s an awesome choice if you’re the kind of guy who likes to be a little different without going too far off the beaten path.

This pretty black coupe looks like a far more upscale and expensive machine, highly detailed and precisely assembled. It’s entirely steel, including a rather rare 25-vent hood that greatly aids cooling, and the car was refinished to concours standards about 20 years ago. Its current condition is a testament to the quality of the work and the care it has received, although with just over 30,000 miles on the build, it’s obviously no longer flawless. But what that does mean is that it’s a proven entity, and if you want a car in which you can cruise coast-to-coast with nothing more than a cool soda in your hand and your best lady by your side, this is most definitely it. Nothing on Henry’s Lady was modified or shaved, so it retains all the beautiful detailing that makes these cars look expensive. Note the landau irons on the mock convertible top, the beautiful built-in wind wings, and scroll-like door handles, all standard equipment on the Deluxe models. This one also has a familiar ’32 grille shell with a red insert that looks awesome alongside the red pinstripe and wheels, plus those big commercial headlights that are part of the upscale image (funny how that works). There are a few very, very minor signs of use but nothing that needs attention today, making it ready to show and drive just about anywhere. LED taillights, chrome bumpers, and beautiful pinstripe work highlights the ‘32’s intricate body moldings and it’s named on the gas tank: Deucemeister II.

The gray leather interior is superbly finished and shows very few signs of 30,000 miles’ worth of fun. The upgraded bench seat features a center armrest that’s surprisingly useful even in the compact coupe and the door panels were all upholstered to match. The coupe features a full wool headliner that feels expensive, as well as custom-bound carpets and plenty of sound insulation to keep it comfortable on the road. The original dash was lightly re-sculpted and now houses an engine-turned panel with vintage-looking gauges from Classic Instruments. You’ll also find a cut-down 1940 Ford steering wheel on a tilt column, a custom Lokar shifter with LED indicator on the dash, a traditional “spoon” accelerator pedal, and a trick panel over on the passenger’s side with two more gauges: voltage and oil pressure. This is exactly what professional workmanship looks like and the detailing is exceptionally good—rarely do we see rods finished to this level, especially at this price. The rumble seat is still in place and has been fully upholstered to match, making this rod a ton of fun if you have kids or friends who want to come along for the ride.

Open that special 25-vent hood and you’ll find a well-dressed 305 cubic inch Chevrolet V8. Don’t cry because it’s not a 350, you weren’t going to use the extra cubes anyway. This one runs great, makes awesome hot rod sounds, and pushes the featherweight coupe around with enough authority to terrify anyone. It’s also neatly finished with finned valve covers and a matching air cleaner, an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor, a full Mallory electronic ignition system, and enough of a cam to make it sound suitably aggressive. Note the neat details like the engine-turned spark plug wire holders, which match the gauge panel inside, the satin-finish headers, and the awesome bracket holding the aluminum fan on the radiator. This car was built to drive, no question about that, and none of the engineering is sub-standard. Turn the key and it starts, hot or cold. It idles great and accelerates clean at almost any speed. It doesn’t run hot, makes plenty of oil pressure, and you can trust this car to get you home every time. A lot of rods won’t deliver that level of confidence.

A lot of that comes from the chassis, which is expertly built and engineered. The front suspension uses a dropped axle to give it that awesome stance and chrome shocks don’t extract a ride penalty. The TH350 3-speed automatic transmission feeds a familiar Ford 8-inch rear end on a 4-link setup with coil-overs, so it’s easy to adjust and handles great. A custom driveshaft, reinforced frame, front disc brakes, and a custom exhaust system all contribute to the bulletproof ride. Thoughtful details abound, including a transmission cooler mounted to the frame, brake bias adjustment, and the original gas tank out back, fully restored. Yes, there are signs of use but nothing substantial and again, that only means that all the bugs have been worked out. And since it’s not perfect, you won’t be afraid to drive it, which is a luxury most guys don’t think about until they’re faced with scratching their perfect new $100,000 rod. Get over it, this car is a lot more fun. On a ’32, particularly a semi-formal Sport Coupe, those staggered red steelies with trim rings and hub caps are exactly the right choice, and they carry staggered 195/65/15 front and 235/70/16 rear blackwall radials.

This is an exceptional car. I saw a ’32 Sport Coupe project sell for more than $35,000 a few years ago, suggesting that there’s a lot more to these cars than meets the eye. The more we look, the more we like this gorgeous black coupe, and as you get to know it, the impressive little details remind you that some rods are simply better than others. Add in the ultra-rare body style, the classic look, and exceptional comfort, and you get a car that is a slam-dunk no matter who you are. Call today!
