FULLY BUILT ROADSTER, TCI CHASIS, LABARRON BONNIE TOP, VERY NICE!
The cars you want to own are those a professional built for himself. For instance, this gorgeous 1932 Ford roadster was built by a professional restorer for his own personal use, so you know the quality is impressive and the look is timeless. With reliable Chevy power and a few custom tricks you may not have seen before, this awesome rod is shockingly affordable.
It's a fiberglass body, but the finish quality is extremely impressive. All the classic '32 Ford design details are there and aside from shaved door handles, it could pass for a Henry Ford creation. It doesn't try anything radical, instead sticking to the idea that quality matters and that the details make it special. A hood with open sides is a traditional hot rod look, but check out the smoothed radiator shell and Pontiac taillights that give it a slightly different look from all the others that you see at shows. Full fenders make it less radical than a hi-boy, but the stance and rolling stock leave no doubt that this Deuce was built for speed. The blue paint shines up beautifully and isn't marred by unnecessary graphics or stripes, just a clean roadster that makes a great first impression. Also be sure to check out those trick headlights, which feature integral turn signals that are a super clean way to add safety without add-on fixtures. Nice!
Ford roadsters were typically minimalist cars, but this one got a big dose of luxury inside where there's a wide leather seat, plush carpets, and a few upgrades that make cruising a pleasure. A tilt wheel with a banjo-style wheel makes getting in easier than any stock '32 roadster and still looks suitably old school. The instrument panel was covered in matching blue paint and filled with attractive white-faced gauges from Auto Meter. A neat little pod under the dash holds an AM/FM/CD stereo head unit with speakers cleverly hidden throughout the passenger compartment, and there's even a heater tucked up under there for those chilly nights where you just can't bear to put the top up. A cool Lokar shifter looks like an aluminum piston and matches the billet pedals, and seat belts have been added for safety. The trunk is surprisingly roomy and nicely upholstered, offering a few storage cubbys for extra gear and the tan convertible top has a subtle chop yet keeps its original profile.
Power is by a traditional small block Chevy V8 linked to a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission. Nothing radical, but the sound and the performance, not to mention the reliability, will make you a believer in keeping things simple. Edelbrock supplied not only the valve covers (color matched to the body), but also the carb and intake, and it all lives under an air cleaner taken from a 1954 Cadillac. With open hood sides, extra care went into the detailing of the engine, with form following function and craftsmanship taking center stage. The TCI chassis features coil-overs all around, with an independent front suspension and a 9-inch rear out back. Take your time looking around underneath, because there's lots of trick engineering, although the Wheel Vintiques steelies and Firestone radials have a very low-tech look that's perfect for this Ford.
Beautifully built and cleverly engineered, this wonderful '32 Ford is the car you've always dreamed of owning but never quite found the time and money to build yourself. Why wait? Now is the time, so call today!
