It had: silent synchro-mesh shift, simplified free wheeling, improved six-cylinder engine, 60 horsepower, 65-70 miles an hour, faster, quieter getaway, smoother operation, smarter Fisher Bodies, greater comfort and

vision, and unequalled economy. Yes, models started at $475. The 32 Five Window Coupe is a stage coach covered with steel. It had a rumble seat, running boards, and 5 windows. In addition, this model sported dual chromed horns on the front, chromed louvers on the

hoods, and a chromed flying eagle as a hood ornament. It was

know as the deluxe model, called the Confederate.

The car comes with some restoration photos, CD, some service records and documentation. Your inspection is invited!

 

-Jason Petzold - initial project manager.

-Dean Oshiro, ( Vancouver, WA ) - built the custom chassis with asymmetrical rear suspension so it would handle the torque of the chosen supercharged engine.

-Jeff Cropper - from Babylon, NY- a racing boat engine builder who engineered the components of the Dart block. The transmission was also custom designed for the specs of this engine.

-Tony Giriesci - well-known race car builder in Babylon, NY sheet metal expert.

-Bernie Schacker - a famous drag racer and fabricator who invented the first rear engine dragster on LI. Bernie fabricated the new gas tank, and insisted on fabricating hand built headers. Custom designed pedals to fit in the tight space. 

-Bill Carberry - Cap-A-Rad in Farmingdale, NY for installation of an AC and cooling system, including electric fan.

-Tony DiPrima of Commack, NY - dissembled the entire body and painted the pieces by hand, in Cadillac Color Red E. Installed the complete Ron Francis wiring system, sound and equalizer. Finished the lighting, the horns and electronics. In this era, the driver got out on the passenger side, after locking his side from the interior; then the passenger door lock had the keyway, which would secure the car. This might have been a safety feature so the driver would not disembark into the street. Tony had to restructure the rumble seat lid using new metal for alignment. The rumble seat has a functioning key lock, and the compartment holds the battery. Tony contracted for the glass work done at his house. And Tony arranged for Angelo, the upholsterer, who did the complete interior from headliner to doors to floor mats.
