The fraternal twin to 0032, Lil' Foose Coupe is also a fully fendered 1932 Ford. Both vehicles feature a black finish with distressed leather interior and both have been owned by customer Chuck Svatos. However, Lil' Foose Coupe is a 3 window, while 0032 is a roadster. Other differences exist, but the two vehicles are cut from the same cloth.

Also significant is that the two vehicles were at one time traded for each other. Chuck swapped the 0032 with Chip in exchange for the creation of a 3 window version of the roadster. This version, once complete, went on to capture a Great 8 finish at the 2006 Detroit Autorama.

Originally existing as a stock '32 in black primer and flames, it appeared in the background of episodes of Titus, a Fox television series on which Chip served as Hot Rod Consultant.

When the time came for Chip to customize Chuck's new ride, a number of body mods were made. The top was chopped, hood was stretched, cowl smoothed, front fenders stretched, rear fenders reshaped and a new rear roll pan was built. While still a custom Foose ride, Lil' Foose Coupe still maintains a traditional hot-rod look.
