BROOKVILLE STEEL BODY, TCI CHASSIS, 350CI MOTOR, VORTECH HEADS, O/D TRANS
I wish I knew where cars like this come from. It's a freshly built '32 Ford roadster with just 1286 shake-down and test miles on it. Obviously someone built their dream car, but something changed and here it is. Well, their loss is your gain, and you have a chance to own a brand-new, turn-key rod with a built 350, overdrive transmission, and an awesome look, all without the wait to build your own.
The body is Brookville, so no real 1932 Ford roadsters were harmed in the construction of this gorgeous hi-boy roadster. If you're into hot rods, basic black has been a staple for years and looks simply amazing on the Ford's vintage shape. Fit and finish is spectacular, with beautiful gaps, super smooth body panels, and a gloss as deep and as black as a pool of oil. They went full traditional on the build, too, including a raked-backed roadster windshield, shaved door handles with exposed hinges, and round Pontiac taillights out back (although these are modern LED units). When you see it in person, you'll probably fall in love and you should prepare yourself for stoplight conversations from folks who want to know all about it. A billet insert in a '32 Ford shell along with chrome spreader bars gives the front end a familiar look, while the oversized headlights make this one distinctive.
As an open car, leather upholstery is probably a smart choice when it comes to comfort and durability, and the traditional-looking bench seat wears beautiful tan hides that are handsome as well as practical. Matching tan door panels with vertical pleats are period-correct and tan carpets on the floor tie it all together nicely. The instrument panel is filled with classic white-faced Stewart Warner gauges with elegant art-deco pointers and a vintage font, and we like the leather face on the dash, which makes it feel elegant, not raw. A tilt column topped by a 4-spoke wheel makes it fairly easy to get comfortable, and the 700R4 4-speed automatic is managed by a Lokar shifter that's period-perfect. There's no rumble seat in this one, but rather a fairly spacious and usable trunk which has been fully upholstered to match the interior. There's also a nice-fitting black canvas top that not only helps with protection, but looks awesome doing it.
With about 1900 pounds to haul around, the performance of the built 350 cubic inch V8 is explosive. It's got the usual components, including an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor and a set of block-hugging headers, but the point in a car like this isn't all-out horsepower, it's balance. It starts quickly and easily, idles nicely, and pulls hard, especially considering the lightweight body it's pulling. Of course, it's dressed in lots of chrome and polished aluminum trim and sits low in the chassis for improved handling. The headers feed a custom exhaust system that sounds like history, and the chassis has been painted and detailed to match the body. Neither the front nor rear suspensions reinvent the wheel, offering a dropped I-beam up front and trailing arms on the 3.70-geared 9-inch out back. Front disc brakes are a good idea on something that generates this much speed, and they look great behind those vintage alloys with 155/80/15 front and 285/70/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A radials.
Fully sorted with just test and tune miles, this Deuce is ready to rock. Better yet, it's titled as a 1932 Ford, so no hassles when you get it home. Why build your own, this one is available right now! Call today!
