Ford Model 18 Coupe (1932)


Ford Model 18 Coupe (1932)

The line 'You gonna go after him John', is from the immortal film American Graffiti, where John Milner (played by Paul LeMat) is asked whether he's going to chase the tuned 1955 Chevy of Bob Falfa (a young Harrison Ford). The two square up in the final scene, with Milner in this five-window coupe hot rod. Set in 1962, the film centers around one night in a southern Californian town. Milner paroles the main cruise in his 'Deuce coupe' powered by a 1966 327ci (5.3-liter) Corvette engine with 'Fuelie' (fuel injection) heads and a Man-a-Fre quad carb manifold. The car used a Chevy sedan rear axle with a transverse leaf spring and ladder bars for optimum traction, while the front used the original beam axle but kicked-up either end to lower the nose of the car. The wheels were reversed versions of what was available on larger Chevy sedans, but chromed here for show.
