This fun sized roadster is only � the size of its original big brother and still features a flat head V8! With only 340 miles on the build, this stunning 1932 Ford Roadster runs and drives excellent and is a blast to drive with a 5-speed manual transmission. 1932 was the very first year that Ford unveiled the flat head V8 which became popular with hot rodders over the years and was consistently being modified to eke out the maximum amount of power possible. Although the flatheads weren't producing enormous amounts of power, putting one in a stripped down roadster was plenty fast! This street legal roadster is � scale from the original and is a complete fiberglass body. The weight was substantially cut down because of this making it even sportier than ever before! As walk up, open the door, and slide in you start to grasp the size difference between this and the original. It feels a bit like a T-bucket with the same classic looks as the normal roadsters. Turn the key and fire up the V8 and the indisputable sound of a flat head engine exits the rear of the car. When you ease off the clutch, you will be blown away by how quick this car is even with just a little throttle. The shifter is low and has short throws, but is crisp and is simple to use. This would be a great cruiser for someone looking for a toy to enjoy around town or take for cruise down some back roads! This vehicle is located in our Dallas showroom.
