1932 Ford 3 window coupe owned and built by Bob Huddleston and Harry Fake of the Arlington Auto Club, in Arlington, Texas. The duo got hold of a bone stock 32 coupe that had ran 39,000 miles, which they soon teared down and turned into one of the fastest hot rods in Arlington. The body was restored, and the chassis was modified with a 283 cui 1955 Chevrolet mill, equipped with a Racer Brown cam and lifters, Edelbrock manifold with two Stromberg 94's, and JE Engineering Corporation pistons with Grant rings. A 5.38 to 1 rear end ratio made sure of good acceleration and making the Inglewood slicks smoke at drags. The coupe clocked 109.08mph on 13,2 seconds! The car was also upholstered in Naugahyde, and fit with Moon discs on whitewalls. Bob and Harry grabbed first place at two Texas car shows.[1]
