So, now you know a little about the man who owns the 1932 Ford 5W Coupe, let’s get into the history of the coupe.

Finding a unique piece of documented history and it being a 1932 Ford 5W coupe is few and far between these days, especially one like this.


1959 Fl veh regThis original car was purchased in 1932 by a New Jersey Judge (we were told) who lived in Miami, Florida. In 1957 Frank Ferree of Orlando, Florida bought the car. In the mid-60’s, Ferree replaced the original Flathead engine with a Ford 302 from a Mustang.

In 1971 Ferree and his son installed a Chevy 327/350 with a 2B carburetor and manifold from a newly wrecked car, repainted the car while keeping the original black paint on the fenders. He then drove the car to Bonneville, Utah and also made 2 stops in California. The car lived between FL and NC until 2004

In 2004 Mr. Hildebrand who lived west of Atlanta, Georgia purchased the car from Ferree Jr. where the car was in sitting in a field in North Carolina. Mr. Hildebrand dragging it out of the field rebuilt the engine, the wheels and tires were replaced, a Vega gearbox and Ford 9” rear end were added as well as a new x-member. Mr. Hildebrand kept it until 2014.

After being posted on an auto trading website in 2014, Donnie T who lived in Alabama traded Mr. Hildebrand, who was by then 80 years old, a 32 roadster for the coupe. Donnie also installed the tri-powered carbs and manifold.

It changed hands quickly for a black new interior until Al purchased it in 2015

Al drives his car year round and enjoys it to the fullest.

Al has put in a new exhaust, Diamond Back Auburns Bias look Radials.

He added a new gauge cluster with SW gages.

New tire rods, new Painless fuse-block.

LED bulbs all around for better nite driving

His future plans are to keep it as it is and drive the pants off it.
Fellow Hotrod builders love what they see on line and even more in person, especially at the 2019 Autorama in Detroit.
It does get the cameraman eyes when they see it and hear the history.

My name is Dennis. First, let me just say, I am a Christian, a husband, a father to 1 beautiful step-daughter and 3 strapping young boys and a step-grandfather (She calls me “Grumpy”) to a gorgeous step-granddaughter. These will always be my priorities, no matter what my interests are. That said, I strive to keep and maintain a family friendly atmosphere, so my boys and their friends can enjoy the site as much as I do. (Granddaughter isn’t old enough and daughter has other interests.)
