Early Ford body designs have been a notoriously popular platform
for customization into street rods for many years. Particularly the
Model A and early Ford V8 styles of the 1930's. A great number of
designers and builders have captured the attention of classic car
enthusiasts with their more appealing high horsepower drivetrains
along with sculpted body lines and typical wild paint jobs! Each
one different than the next, owning a custom 1930's Ford is a great
way to add an individual touch to your collection!
Offered here is a gorgeous 1932 Ford Highboy Roadster finished in a
vibrant Blue with Tan vinyl interior perfectly accented with Light
Blue and Tan pinstriping! Power comes from an 8BA-generation 239ci
Flathead V8 with earlier generation center port 59A Offenhauser
finned aluminum 24-stud heads and an Offenhauser dual carb aluminum
intake fitted with Ford 59 carburetors and Edmonds oval aluminum
air cleaners. Spark delivery is provided with a Mallory dual-point
distributor and coil with a billet heat shield. Ceramic coated
exhaust headers feed twin Smitty mufflers for an outstanding hot
rod sound! Cooling efficiency is provided by a Brassworks radiator
up front. Power output is now estimated at 125 horsepower and
delivered through a floor-shifted 3-speed manual transmission and
Ford 9" rear axle.
Beginning this build in the mid 1990's, a new 1932 style roadster
chassis was modified and reinforced with a front & rear 4-link
parallel suspension with horizontal leaf springs. The front
received a 4" tubular drop axle with a manual steering box; along
with drum brakes, braided stainless steel brake lines, and Pete and
Jakes chrome shock absorbers at all four corners. The fiberglass
Roadster body was supplied from Downs Industries which was expertly
molded with wood & steel reinforcements, hidden door & trunk
hinges, and a cockpit that was stretched 2" to provide more cabin
leg room for occupants. It was painted an eye-catching shade of
blue and carefully pinstriped by artist, Shakey, in 1998 upon
completion with a combination of blue and tan! It will come with
complete steel hood assembly already painted to match, with only
the upper hood in use presently. The sides are shown in the
Inside the cockpit, you will see the full array of Stewart Warner
instrumentation, turn signals, banjo steering wheel, tinted
windshield and wind wings, wood shift knob, and carpeted floor
mats. All new 12-volt wiring with new fuse panel were installed in
the process. On the ground are 15" chrome wheels/hubcaps wrapped in
BF Goodrich Silvertown Radial whitewall tires measuring 165R15 up
front and 255/70R15 at the rear. The results are quite striking!
Its full combination of all-Ford components provides for a truly
traditional street rod that will speak to the hearts of the classic
1950's era of early Ford customizers! Don't miss this opportunity
to own a terrific era-correct custom Ford Roadster that is
genuinely fun to drive! It is titled as a 1932 Ford. Please feel
