ALL-STEEL DEARBORN DUECE, PROBUILT, CRATE 350 V8, AUTO, 4-LINK, LONGTUBES, A/C!!
Finally, a slick '32 Ford hi-boy roadster that doesn't try to re-create the past. Freshly built, this ALL STEEL '32 wears its sinister black paint job like a tuxedo and skillfully embraces tradition while creating a minimalist rod for the 21st century.
Black paint on a '32 is nothing new, but the incredible finish on this roadster definitely gives it a slick high-tech look. The body is a steel Dearborn Deuce, which means it comes out of the box better than new. It was finished so recently that you can still smell the fresh paint, so it's poised to start collecting trophies and tearing up pavement right away. The body was finished to an exceptionally high standard, particularly since it's wearing black, and it's so smooth and clean that it looks like it will slip through the air without a ripple. The body moldings are crisp and the gaps are laser-sharp. The painted grille shell has a trick look that shows someone was thinking carefully about how it would look before a drop of paint was sprayed, and unnecessary stuff like door handles and hinges were left off the build sheet. Bright work consists of a stainless grille insert, old-school headlights, and the cut-down windshield frame. Out back, '39 Ford taillights are LED units for a high-tech look, but beyond that, it's pure traditional Ford roadster.
The interior is even more impressive than the bodywork, with bright red leather seats that echo the slick, contemporary look with spectacular stitchcraft that's really impressive. A custom bench in a roadster is the best way to make it feel spacious and it features pleated stitching that looks like it cost a fortune. Custom door panels were made to match, and all the materials are first-rate. A 1940 Ford steering wheel on top of a custom tilt column gives it an old-school look, and the instruments are neatly arrayed on the dash. This is a modern rod, so it also includes such niceties as Vintage Air A/C and remote door poppers. A column shifter manages the TH350 3-speed automatic that's probably overkill for this lightweight flyer and with a tilt wheel and billet pedals, it's easy to get comfortable. More red carpets and leather in the trunk keep things simple, and even with the gas tank back there, there's plenty of room for long cruises.
As with the rest of the car, the 350 cubic inch crate motor is fresh and has just over 1500 miles on it today. There's no need to reinvent the wheel here, so it sticks to the basics with a 4-barrel intake manifold and carb, plus an HEI ignition system. Everything between the firewall and radiator is new, including the radiator itself, so it runs beautifully and has been dressed to show off with a few chrome bits and a set of beautiful long-tube headers with a ceramic coating. The front end is pure tradition, with a dropped I-beam and hairpins, while the 9-inch rear end hangs off a 4-link setup, all of which give this Ford a traditional look that still works rather well. The exhaust system is fully customized, the frame is finished as well as the bodywork, and there's a disc brake at each corner. Staggered Torque Thrust wheels wear fat Goodyear performance radials instead of skinnies and slicks, with 15s up front and 17s out back.
Not radical, but beautifully built and definitely gorgeous, this '32 roadster is a fresh build that'll be impressive for years to come. Call today!
