Way cool love the down low look and them big fat tires.
The front end is outstanding!
Funny I’ve been looking to build a hot rod here lately the 32 chevy coupe looks like a winner to me.
I see a red boxes in the back and it came to me he’s puttin light in that thing. LOL

Nicely done and a great year, I had wanted to get one of that year but ended up with the previous model. On this trip I am on I happened up on a gathering of old cars and trucks. Stopped and took pictures, This truck was so low it drug on the closely clipped grass.
