For sale in our Chicago showroom is this 1932 Ford Highboy. While it can be argued that no two hotrods are the same, most of them follow the typical fashion of having a small block Chevy V8 coupled with an automatic transmission. This Las Vegas Gold beauty breaks the mold with a 2.5L Ecotec 4 Cylinder. While that doesn't seem too impressive, the turbo will make you change your mind faster than you can say "Did your car just sneeze?" All 300 rear-wheel horsepower make this 2100lb '32 Ford an absolute rocket, hence the name "Rocket Roadster." What good would a turbo car be without the correct transmission to always keep you in the sweet spot or the RPMs? The T5 manual transmission does just that. And it does it well. Bringing this slick ride to a stop is easy, courtesy of a set of disc brakes, as well as the lightweight nature of the vehicle. This roadster looks stunning parked anywhere, but just like the showgirls of Vegas, you're going to want to see this Vegas gold move. The rear coilover suspension keeps the road tame and the ride pleasant. The assortment of gold and silver bits shine like a diamond in the day, and bounce reflections of the deep, smooth paint all night. As important as looking good is, having an estimated 6lbs of weight per HP, which is better than a Porsche Carrera S! The plush interior was all custom designed as a one-off setup. The spun-aluminum gauge bezel adds to the mechanical feel of the vehicle, as does the gusseted shift lever and machined ball shift knob. This '32 Ford Highboy is truly a sight to behold, and has a sound to be heard! Options include: Manual Convertible Top, Hub Caps, Tilt Wheel, Seat Belts, Leather Interior, and Wide White Walls. For more information on this '32 Ford Highboy, contact our Chicago showroom at (708) 444-4488.
