1932 Ford Other -- Additional Info:

With its classic hot rod style, well-coordinated total package, and tri-power stroker V8 under the hood, 1932 Ford Highboy Roadster is a thoughtfully finished custom classic. Those who love a good '32 Ford hot rod build know the quality that comes from a Gibbons fiberglass body. It's what helps give this one its sleek look. Of course, what also makes this one so slick is investing in a quality application of burgundy metallic paint. It gives the car... a sophisticated tone, but there's also plenty of metallic pop the moment sunlight hits this roadster. Plus, the darker red makes for a fantastic contrast to the gray pinstriping on the hood, trunk, and running along both sides. And this also has great details, like the blue dot headlights, competition-style American racing wheels (with super wide ones in the rear,) and a bit of brightwork for accenting. The red folding top looks great in place. The slightly bolder shade of red against the burgundy paint is the kind of color combo you'd see on a sophisticated European classic â€" so it's particularly striking on an American hot rod. But a car like this was meant to be open to the world, and so when you take the roof down, you reveal a stellar color combo. After all, you can now see that the two-tone gray pinstriping was a preview of the two-tone gray interior. This has a terrific wraparound presentation. And the tuck and roll inserts are made from velour, so it also makes this nice to sit on during hot days with the roof open. This has great hot rod touches like the piston-style gearshift, bright Colorado Customs steering wheel, a dash full of Stewart Warner gauges, and a column-mounted tach. Plus, under the dash is an AM/FM/CD stereo and well-hidden Rockford Fosgate speakers. So this vintage machine can have the best in modern driving tunes. You'll be happy to lift the hood wherever you park this roadster. It has a tidy engine bay with classic Corvette valve covers, an electric fan, and the unmistakable three air toppers of a tri-power machine. You're looking at a powerful 383 cubic-inch stroker V8 that has all the best in upgrades, including an Offenhauser intake and a triple set of dual-barrel carburetors. Plus, the tight-tuck headers let this one exhale freely while giving the dual exhaust a sweet rumble. And as you look at the undercarriage photos, you're going to see color-matched components and nice sets of polished four-link suspension for both front and rear. Add in a smooth TH350 three-speed automatic transmission and front disc brakes, and you have a great all-around cruising roadster. Power with poise, this is highboy of distinction. So don't let it slip away, call today!
