1932 Ford Other -- Additional Info:

Super slick Ford Hi-Boy with one of the finest flame jobs we have ever seen! a ZZ4 V8 with Tuned Port Injection, 4-speed automatic transmission, 4-wheel power disc brakes, American Racing wheels, all chrome suspension and engine! An awesome street rod in every way! Most would agree that true street rodding began in the early 1950s utilizing the classic cars from the 1930s as inspiration. Its arguable that the early 1930s Fords were the most popular choice to...customize, trick out, and personalize. The 1932 Ford 3-window, 5-window, and Roadster were high on the list and quickly became obsolete and difficult to find years later in any condition. This is when the option of a fiberglass body became the easiest solution, along with a host of custom chassis shops to build your street rod from scratch using completely new parts from start to finish. Options were endless, and no two cars are exactly alike today. For smart buyers seeking the efforts of an already finished car, we think you would be hard pressed to match the level of expertise, time, and money put into this example we are offering today! We are very proud to offer this custom 1932 Ford Hi-Boy Roadster finished with a myriad color palate of flames using House of Kolor paints starting with Planet Green Metallic as the base color! This absolutely exquisite finish work was executed by paint specialist & artist, Wet Willy, of Wet Willys Custom Paint & Design in Clarmore, OK! Undeniably sharp in every sense, it has gone on to earn the House of Color Presigious Painter Award and be featured in their 2007 calendar, and Good Guys Rod & Custom Association PPG Paint Pick Award! Beginning with a Kilbourne body and TCI boxed chassis, it was fitted with a ZZ4 crate 350ci V8 & TPI fuel-injection by Street & Performance of Mena, Arkansas along with a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission, and Ford 9 rear axle with Traction-Lok! The front suspension consists of a 4 round tube drop axle with 4-link bars and power front disc brakes! All has been fully chromed to enhance the look, with billet calipers proving the stopping power. At the rear is also a 4-link system with panhard bar, and adjustable spring positions to control ride height as well as adjustable coil-over shocks for better road feel, and Ford 9 axle with disc brakes! Inside the tan leather clad interior, you will be impressed with the level of care to build a bench style seat with a comfortable bucket feel! Nothing was left unfinished including covering the underside of the dash and a trunk to match! Full dash instrumentation is provided using VDO gauges. Other features include chrome IDIDIT tilt steering column & billet steering wheel, dual outside mirrors, tinted windshield, Lokar pedals & throttle cables, Bop Top removable cloth roof, American Racing wheels in a big-little combination, electric cooling fan, stainless steel gas tank, and more! Finished in 2007, it has been driven and shown with just 6,087 miles on the odometer today! Still looking quite impressive overall, the only areas showing some age today are the painted chassis rails at the very bottom, particularly closest to the engine. Although these areas remain invisible from the topside. We feel this example will quickly prove its worth once seen in person, and understanding the level of expertise behind the quality build. For those investors looking for the right car with the money already spent to make it right, look no further!
