According to the advertisement on ClassicCars.com, the vehicle was built using a 1932 Ford chassis with independent rear suspension. At the rear are 15-inch disc brakes with four-piston calipers. Up front, there’s a drop axle with brake discs hidden behind aluminum drums. The Ferrari-powered Ford rides on 18-inch wheels. The suspension features KW racing shocks.

The ’32 Ford bodywork is fiberglass with power windows, pop-up doors, and a steel grille and high-capacity aluminum radiator. The body is painted a Ferrari-themed satin red with the iconic Prancing Horse logo on the cowl and wheel hubs.

There also are Mishimoto intercoolers for the 3.0-liter Ferrari V8, vintage 1989 and twin-turbocharged to provide 950 horsepower. That power is fed through a 6-speed Tremec manual gearbox and racing clutch.

The car is equipped with 5-point safety harnesses, full roll cage and leather bucket seats.

The asking price is $250,000, or best offer.
