Ford Tudor Sedan Hot Rod
More than 75 years after its groundbreaking introduction, the 1932 Ford remains a true American cultural icon that shows no signs of fading away. From its undeniably handsome Lincoln-esque styling cues to its powerful Flathead V8 engine, the 1932 Ford was a natural canvas for hot rodders to express their art and while many early rods were rather crude, a new generation of street rodders emerged during the mid-1970s. Led by John Buttera and Boyd Coddington, a new trend emerged, underscored by high levels of detail and craftsmanship, featuring clean, uncluttered and complete bodywork, as well as comfortable, well trimmed interiors. Drivability and reliability, rather than sheer brute force, became prime considerations as well.
