BOYDSTER ROADSTER, LT1 CHEVROLET, 4 SPEED AUTO TRANS, SHOW WINNING QUALITY, PERF
Distilled down to its basic elements, the 1932 "Boydster" is perhaps the ultimate expression of a 1932 Ford highboy roadster. Still just as stunning as when it hit the market two decades ago, it is one of the earliest Chip Foose designs and only proves that things of quality have no fear of time. This car looks like it should cost five times the asking price.
Undeniably a '32 Ford roadster, there's actually not a single stock panel on the entire car, which shows you the artistry involved. Smooth is the word and the flow of the lines from the painted '32 grille shell to the perfectly rounded and finished tail is far beyond anything they were doing in 1932. The fiberglass is beautifully finished to show standards, with impeccable gaps and crisp details like the beltline molding and the wheel well. Of course, that's what you'd expect from a rod finished by the famous Roy Pigford at Roy's Body Shop in Houston, and the sizzling yellow paint almost looks like it would burn you if you touched it. Taillights are hidden, there are no door handles, and the raked-back windshield with curved glass is perhaps the car's most defining feature. It's quite likely that you've never seen a rod this nice outside of a magazine or national show.
The stunning interior doesn't take a back seat to the bodywork, and was crafted entirely from scratch in tan leather by the guys at Gabe's (you know, the guys who did all of Boyd Coddington's rods). As much art as function, it nonetheless offers a comfortable place to cruise and is finished to show standards. Everything you can touch was hand-made, from the low-slung bench seat to the beautifully bound carpets that hug the contours of the floor perfectly. The door panels are works of art all by themselves, and the car's overall minimalist design extends to the dash which holds just a single gauge pod with beautiful Classic Instruments gauges that handle only the basics. Why do you need more? No A/C, no heat, not even a radio will detract from the purity of this rod. Even the trunk is finished to be shown, with access panels hiding the inner workings.
Power comes from the stout, reliable Chevy Corvette LT1 small block. Finished to match the body, it looks like some kind of futuristic power cell clad in a custom intake cover that hides all the working parts. The stock valve covers were painted and dressed up with chrome bolts, and it's fed by a custom air filter that fits just right. With 300 horsepower on tap, performance is explosive, but that's not really the point. This is art, and every single component on this car was massaged, finished, polished, or painted to create an incredible presentation that will make people stop in their tracks. A 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission makes it easy to drive, and the suspension is fully independent so this sucker clings like Velcro to the corners. Heck, even the exhaust system is a sculpture! Staggered Boyd Coddington billet wheels wear 195/55/15 front and 295/55/17 rear tires for the perfect rake.
Impressive doesn't even begin to cover this rod, which is one of the finest we've ever featured. Call today for all the details.
