1932 Ford 5 Window Coupe

What started life as a 1932 Ford 5 window coupe with a 21 stud flat-head V-8 engine, was found by Vern Rauch, Gene's brother, in a barn in Idaho in 2004. It was a complete and absolutely "cherry" vehicle. However, the body was the prize that Gene needed for building his "ultimate" Street Rod.

Gene had a Chrysler Hemi and now he had the exceptional all steel body. Next was to located the best street rod chassis available and that search led him to T.C.I. Chassis in Ontario, California. Virtually everything else on the car is new and state of the art.
