Roadsters began as any open, two-seated car without weather protection and an emphasis on a sporty appearance. Ford took this basic definition and streamlined many of its models in the 1930s to be cutting-edge symbols of modernity and speed, attracting customers by flash as much as high-tech mechanical performance. In 1933, Ford redesigned its Roadster with a V8 engine, curved fenders and a slanted radiator grille. The 1934 version was even more rakish, which made it the star at Ford’s pavilion at the Chicago Century of Progress Exposition that year.
This 1934 Ford Roadster Hot Rod replica was built in the early 1980s and owned by the same collector for twenty years. It had a total rebuild in 2015, including paint, interior and mechanics. It boasts a rumble seat, removable top, heater and electronic trunk lid. The fiberglass body is in perfect condition, and the 1934 Ford hood and grille are all-steel. Also featured are disc front brakes, rear drum brakes and real Hallibrand tires. It also has a Pete & Jake’s front end and Pete Jackson gear drive timing.
This stunning reproduction had a perfect driver and needs nothing other than its next devoted owner.
