1931 Ford Roadster
Well, I'm not braggin', babe, so don't put me down But I've got the

Just a little deuce coupe with a flat head mill But she'll walk a
Thunderbird like she's standin' still She's ported and relieved,
and she's stroked and bored She'll do a hundred and forty with the

For consignment the quintessential example of the early hot rod in
great condition and use of many different pulled together parts to
create a custom rodder. Doors were cut flush, the rear has been
bobbed, a '32 dash, '32 grille, '32 bumper, and marine grade
Naugahyde tuck and roll interior, it cannot get any more custom.
Some spit under the hood just add go juice and let the arm drop
happen, or better yet have one of the gals drop a hanky.
Midnight Blue (my favorite color! just put in a quarter for the
ribbed version...) adorns this classic racer/tool around town and
garner all the looks vehicle. Beautifully proportioned steel panels
and curves allow this car to go topless and it looks just fab.
Chromed large headlights held together with a single chromed bar
stretch across the front '32 grille and radiator surround.
Curvaceous fenders and a common running board frame the edges of
this car and present much like a posing Playboy centerfold with
their sensuous curves. A cowled hood, custom made windshield frame,
flush cut doors and a bobbed rear that has dual exhausts peeking
out from underneath the hot rod look is defined right here. Lest we
forget the corners which are framed with deep trim rings and moon
cap dog dish style wheel covers all shiny and bright wrapped by
245/70-R15's on back and 205/60-R15's in front. Paint on some red
pinstripe flourishes all buttoned up to be a rad rod.
Custom patterned and stitched tuck and roll red naugahyde panels
cover the door panels and bench seat inside. These all float in a
sea of clean black carpeting which I curled my toes and wiggled
them deep into this covering. It's that nice. Hovering above is a
Midnight Blue metal dash with a chromed oval panel peppered with
white faced gauges and black letters and numbers. A rally size
banjo style steering wheel is covered with red naugahyde, and just
to drivers right is a dash top mounted oval rear-view mirror proves
to look very debonair and of period. Also noted is a long shift
lever rising to the heavens topped with a flame ball topper and
deep blue boot well within reach of the driver. A shout out to the
trunk which is lined with more...you guessed it... red tuck and
Just gleaming reviews for the under the hood "ornament" is 327ci's
and circa 1966. A 700 R4 transmission is on back, and it is fed by
a single 4-barrel Edelbrock carburetor and then through an
Edelbrock intake manifold which resides under a ribbed oval chrome
air cleaner cover. All surfaces have been polished or show in
pristine cast aluminum even the valve covers with "Corvette"
badging in your grandmother's handwriting showing on either side. A
10-bolt Camaro rear is now installed. Just a wonderful presentation
and making me hot, so I moved back from this idling monster!
Just showroom pristine underneath all straight structurally sound
steel and undercarriage, we note a front modified Fat-Man
suspension in independent coil spring configuration with a 4 link
with coil overs for the rear. Disc brakes are reserved for the
front, and drums for the back, and a shiny Flowmaster exhaust is
seen down under.
This rad rod fired right up, and it was off to the races,
well...actually the test track where all worked well whilst putting
it through the paces. Drives much like a modern car because most of
it is mechanically.
A meticulous builder and consigner who paid attention to all
details, produced a final result combining the aesthetic traits of
a show-worthy street rod with the drivability of a modern hot rod.
This all-steel, 2X Best of Show winner roadster is ready to turn
heads, and snap necks. The appeal of this show and go roadster is
also price related, as you would have an impossible time doing this
quality of a build for the asking price.
