1932 Ford Roadster VIN: 181608927 2012 Goodguys Hot Rod of the Year First channeled Roy Brizio hot rod Edelbrock Ford 347, Tremec 5-Speed, Ford 9 Rear Sid Chavers interior This is the 2012 Goodguys Hot Rod of the Year. Many amazing creations vie for this, the highest accolade in the hot rod world, but only one can win. The story begins with Tom Gloy who had an automotive racing career that spanned more than 25 years. In that time Gloy collected a Trans-Am World Championship as well as a Formula Atlantic title. He drove in 6 IndyCar races including a start in the 1984 Indy 500 finishing 14th. Gloy always wanted a '32 hot rod, but was never satisfied with the way most of them turned out. He wanted something different. He wanted something channeled. He didn't want a show queen, he wanted something he could really drive. Gloy turned to his friend Roy Brizio, a legend in the hot rod world, to build him the car. Brizio knew of the design challenges of building a channeled '32, especially for someone over six feet tall such as Gloy. In the end, the body was the first Brizio car to ever make its way over the rails, and did so with a two-inch narrower cowl and windshield. They also narrowed the grille shell by taking out material on either side of the center portions, and created a hood with louvered sides that drape over the frame rails. To get Tom down low in the seat, the floorboards were radically lowered - more so than any other hot rod to roll out of Brizio's South San Francisco stable. Out back, the rear quarters were filled and smoothed and the rear wheels tucked tightly against the channeled body. The custom Brizio chassis features torsion bar suspension from Moal Coachbuilders and a classic hot rod rake courtesy of the chromed Magnum 5-inch dropped axle. Custom made 18 and 16-inch ET knockoff wheels are enhanced with custom machined caliper brackets designed to fill the backside of the wheels (inspired by Bonneville style Moon discs). Since Tom raced for Ford there was only one choice for the engine. An Edelbrock Ford 347 was selected, topped with Hilborn EFI and decorated with T-Bird valve covers to emulate a vintage Y-Block. The potent powerplant is hooked up to a Tremec 5-speed. To shrug off the speed Wilwood disc brakes are at all four corners. The Hillborn's electronics where dialed in by engine builder Paul Hasselgren, one of Tom's first racing business employees. Bay area body paint specialist Darryl Hollenbeck of Vintage Color Studio spent many hours perfecting the car's classic finish - a 1958 Porsche Aquamarine Blue, which perfectly contrasts the red leather interior stitched by Sid Chavers. Stewart Warner gauges in an engine-turned panel, and a Bell steering wheel on a tilt column finish the interior off. Once the car was finished Gloy put the car to task by driving it to Indy, completing all of the Hot Rod of the Year tasks, and then driving the 2,000 miles back home without a hitch. Tom calls the car a modern icon and with its innovative looks, and a hard driving reputation under his belt, he certainly hit the nail on the head.
