The show-quality, 1932 chopped Three-Window Coupe offered here was built in the early-1980s by master craftsman Curt Cunningham, at a cost of over $100,000, and it was completely freshened in 2012, with new paint, interior, and detailing; it remains timeless. Incredible details abound: the full-fendered, all-steel Deuce is finished in black, while the suicide doors open to reveal a comfortable interior trimmed with deep Merlot leather upholstery, and it features air conditioning, power windows, and an Alpine stereo with an iPod dock and Pandora radio. A complete gauge cluster using VDO instrumentation supplies vital information to the driver, while the trunk area is trimmed in Merlot leather matched to the interior and houses the gel battery.

A polished dropped front axle and a coil-over rear suspension support the Deuce, which rides on a set of polished Halibrand-style wheels with knock-off spinners. Power is supplied by a new 350-cubic inch Chevy crate motor with a four-barrel carburetor and dual exhausts, backed by an automatic transmission. Power is transmitted to the nine-inch Ford rear end via a chromed driveshaft. Interestingly, the chrome backing plates on the finned Buick brake drums cleverly hide a set of modern So-Cal disc brakes.

The engine bay is finished in body color, and it is set off by polished items, like the alternator and air conditioning compressor. The exhaust manifolds are chromed and in concert, with the complete stainless steel exhaust system providing an exhilarating sound at both idle and full throttle. The subject of a seven-page article on street rod construction, this Three-Window Coupe presents a rare opportunity to purchase a professional-built all-steel hot rod in a world full of fiberglass clones.
