Builds>>drew’s ’32

Even If you don't know the name Drew Strunk, then you'll surely know the KDF Mangler Volksrod that he brought to Bonneville this year.

Drew has been hard at work on another project, and he just sent us a few photos of his progress.

The car started off as a four-door sedan, but Drew has turned the old Ford into a classic five-window coupe…

…with a very aggressive chop. 6.5 inches to be exact!

At this point Drew is getting ready to hang the rear quarter panels.

As with the Mangler, almost everything on the car is being handcrafted – like the 1/4 elliptical rear suspension.

Drew wants to do something crazy with the front grille insert.

In fact, he's considering a rear radiator setup so he can leave the insert in all the time.

Power is going to come from a 401 cubic inch Buick Nailhead.

There's no doubt this car will be just as insane as his other projects.

Can't wait to see the finished product. Thanks for the update Drew!
