Any suggestions on a steel or carbon 1" threadless fork for a steel frame that will clear a 700x32 cross tire while still using a 105 brake (49mm max reach)?

heh. yep. Its an 86 Schwinn Traveler that I stripped and repainted. The bike will never see anything more than dry hardpack, chat or gravel roads. The rear 32 clears the bridge and caliper by about 5-7mm and it looks badass. The front hits the rear base of the fork crown. I only need a fork thats about -10mm longer. ...I should probably measure the current fork, a-c.

never mind. I was able to grind down the excess where the steer tube passes thru the fork crown. The tire now clears.
