The 1932 Ford 3 Window Coupe is a common presence at auction events, but this Street Rods by Michael-built hot rod is a little more special.

Set to go under the hammer at the Mecum Original Spring Classic Auction in Indianapolis, this 1932 two-seater has been donated by Brian and Linda Perilloux of Katy, Texas, to benefit the Curing Kids Cancer organization.

Fully restored, the two-tone red over black painted hot rod is powered by GM 350 cubic inch Vortec V8 engine rated at 330 HP and a 700R4 overdrive transmission. It also features a Pete & Jake’s chrome front suspension, a Ford 9-inch with a four-bar coilover rear end, GM 11-inch disc brakes in the front, Ford drum brakes at the rear and a 16-gallon rear fuel tank.

In the cabin, the 3 Window Coupe sports a custom leather upholstery over Wiseguys seats, a LeCarra steering wheel, Ididit steering column, Lokar shifter, power windows and a Vintage Air temperature-control unit.

The mint-looking hot rod should fetch a respectable amount at Mecum's auction and, as we already mentioned, all proceeds will be donated to help find cures for cancer. A truly noble gesture by the owners.
