Bingo !
Even the guy's in the U.K. get it.

I just cant help it. Don't shoot me. But every time I look at a car like this, I think "that looks pretty good...too bad about the headlights" I know its the fashion, and I am behind the times, but I just cant help it. In fact the more of them I see, it isn't growing on me at all, its having the opposite effect.
I didn't have any of those to start with.I played with lights & I ended up with these.
Looks like 7" King Bees? That's what I have for my T sedan. Nice. To me, the big-ass OEM frog eyes just look out of place on a hot rod, it will never look right to me, anymore than artillery wheels will.
There 7".

Slightly chopped grill shell to match the slight channel too. Nice work.

Funny ol Pfurf never used the goofy laid back windshield over chopped look that is so prevalent today. And he built 3 32 3W's and a 34 3W. Correct BP?
Two red one black & the 34 was the famous "cop shop" coupe.
Get the stance right, followed by fit & finish.

I agree.  It'd be cool to see it back on the road - whatever happened to it ?

Were any automatic or stick? I'll have to dig through my old American Rodgers.

Ron Attebury had a hand in building all three of the 32 3-windows. I remember seeing the Black one at his shop many years ago. The headers sure look familiar

The late John Thomas, a gentleman who truly enjoyed his Hemi powered rides...he had the roadster, a 40 coupe and a Hollywood Graham,  all Hemi powered.
Another view of John's roadster.
