Before visiting the ship, Gib Webb, the owner of this 1932 Ford coupe had a nice hot rod that he could enjoy. After a while, Gib wanted something more. To transform it into something truly outrageous, he brought the coupe to Powerhouse Hot Rod.
The coupe was stripped all the way down to its chassis and re-built into an over-the-top beast that makes gearheads drool and mothers hide their children. This Coupe is named “Double Trouble” for its engine, a beautifully polished all-aluminum 565 ci big block Chevy from World Products. The intake is a one-off piece that was specially CNC machined from a 700-pound block of aluminum, complete with a custom blower scoops and Hemi replica valve covers. Twin billet 671 blowers are topped by a quartet of chrome-plated Demon carbs. If that wasn’t enough boost, two nitrous systems add even more.
The zoomie-style headers are stainless steel and Jet-Hot coated inside. Plumbing, including the casing for the wiring, is all polished stainless steel. A custom Be Cool radiator, made specifically for this project, keeps the engine temperature in check. A polished Turbo 400 trans sends all this power to a 9 inch rear. Additionally, Powerhouse reworked the suspension. The entire front and rear suspension and added polished stainless with custom shocks at each corner.
With the body already in good shape, minor work was done before adding new yellow paint and airbrushed flames. The result is a Coupe like no other and easily stands out in the rows of ‘32’s at shows.
