new here, comments on car please

Hi everyone, new to the forum and just pulled this car home tonight. Actually found it in a field off a 2 lane road. I was wondering if anyone may recognize it. It has very distinct purple firewall and front suspension. It has a BBC 454, turbo 400 trans and is basicly all complete just been sitting for 5 years or so according to the registration. BTW it's all steel also
Can anyone verify the year?
Thanks!

FOUND IT? HUH? It's only the most popular hot rod body of all time a 1932 Ford five window, a 30 Model A grille shell over the radiator, can't make out the frame.

Thanks for the reply, the grill threw me off..I wasnt really sure what it was. yeah you believe I "found" a 32 steel 5 window? lol Of course I had to pay for it. I am not sure of the frame either except I can see it has not been boxed. unfortunately this one is gonna have to sit in the garage for a bit while I finish another project...I wanted to get it home and out of the elements. "missing drivers side window but crank mechanism is all there"
pretty cool huh?
I have been doing muscle cars for years so these early ones are difficult for me to identify all the pieces

I believe the grille is off a '31 Model A Ford. The 5-window body is the same as driven by Milner in American Graffiti. Many people have cloned the car since the movie.

I was thinking the same thing. Time to sell all of the goofy 80's-90's street rod junk on craigslist and find an old Hemi to slip between the frame rails. Quite a lot of potential right there!
