Vehicle Description

Vehicle to be offered for Auction sale January 19th - 22nd, 2017 at Russo and Steele's 17th Annual Scottsdale Arizona Auction at the Salt River Fields at Talking Stick. Please contact us for more information. Starting with a real steel '29 Ford body over '32 Ford frame rails, this awesome Hi Boy features a multitude of custom tweaks including new lengthened doors (2 inches longer were built with front hinge pockets and door jams modified to extend opening 3 inches), the rear cowl cut and moved back 3 more inches for a 6-inch interior room gain, a custom all-steel dash that rolls around through the doors and rear cowl for a continuous look, rear wells opened up to accommodate big tires and adjoining panels rolled into the mix, aircraft Spruce filler neck and 20-gallon alloy tank added behind the driver, a rear pan dropped 3 inches and a rolled pan added below it, plus a frenched license plate frame and 50's taillight bezels. The lengthy hood was fabricated in 0.063" aluminum to fit the contour of the custom nose and grille built especially for this car. Custom made windshield posts hold a curved MGB windshield. Special bronze head-light mounts support single housing elements and small billet turn signals sculpted to match the curve of the nose. Flawlessly painted in Dark Midnight Blue, appearing uniquely black and/or blue in different lighting, the Hi Boy weighs just 1,020 lbs. on the front wheels and 1,100 lbs. on the rear. The interior features custom scratch-built bucket seats stitched by Jerry Noones in Mercedes Bamboo-colored leather and the carpeting is matching wool square weave. A custom alloy dash holds full Moon instrumentation. The chromed, clean steering column is topped with a Sprint car wheel wrapped in matching leather. A custom CNC-machined and polished pedal assembly operates a three-piston master cylinder. All interior parts are custom-made. Power is delivered by a potent blueprinted and balanced Chevy 350 with 4-bolt mains, fitted with a steel crank, 10:1 compression, hi-performance camshaft, roller rockers, hydraulic lifters, Edelbrock Performer intake, Demon 650-CFM carb, and Vertex magneto, cooled by a Ron Davis custom alloy radiator with six-blade engine fan (no overheating issues!), with fuel delivered by a high-output mechanical fuel pump. All attached to a scattershield bellhousing, Clutch Master performance clutch assembly, and Richmond T-10 four-speed connected to a custom driveshaft ending in a 9-inch Ford 3.70:1 Currie differential with limited slip and complete stainless handbuilt exhaust. Runs dependably with 400+ hp, performs as a true thoroughbred under hard power, hard turns, hard braking and rough roads! The custom-built chassis is based on classic '32 Ford boxed frame rails using the latest front and rear torsion bar suspension technology; pinched and modified throughout to fit the body perfectly; solid chromed, dropped front axle using wishbone axle control; sprint car steering box; polished custom alloy shocks front and rear; chrome-moly tubular crossmembers with driveshaft cage. Finished in matching color of car with the same quality of preparation and paint as the body. Wheels are polished alloy American Hopsters. Built at a cost of over $200,000, this outstanding hot rod was featured in Street Rodder Builder. Truly a one-of-a-kind, top-quality street rod, it is a standout in every possible respect.
