1931 Ford Roadster (Beverly, MA) $74,900 obo This build is absolutely stunning, the all steel Brookville body sits with a 32 grille shell, 32 chopped windshield, and 32 Brookville pinched frame. Powered by a fresh 472 modified Cadillac engine and a 400 turbo transmission, you will have more than enough power and reliability for years to come. Performance modifications include but are not limited to a Thumper cam, LS beehive springs, polished hi-rise intake manifold, 750 Holley 4bbl, custom lake pipes with new exhaust side extensions, Wilwood front disc brakes and rear 11'' drum brakes, nine inch rear with 3.50:1 positraction gears, two stage paint, Mickey Thompson Radial Sportman tires, ET wheels, heated seats, MSD 6AL box, and a custom aluminum interior. This roadster was built right and every detail has been taken into consideration. The custom top by Rod Tops is a fitting touch and it gives it a little more flare as if it needed it. This Roadster has approximately 400 hp and 550 ft/lbs of torque, however it rides and handles very nicely especially when you compare it to others. The vehicle was a $100K+ professional build 6 years ago and it's truly in a class of its own. Please give our friend Tony a call at 617-512-5817 or 978-969-2930

The idea of Hagerty’s Swap to Street Challenge sprouted from a simple concept often heard at the Hershey Swap Meet, that you could build an entire car from the used parts.
‘I’m a Ramblin’ Wreck from Georgia Tech and a hell of an engineer…”
