1932 Ford Other Additional Info:

This is a rare opportunity to own a custom built old school 32 Roadster by the LEGENDARY master of old school builds, Vern Tardel. Photos document this car as it was carefully assembled from original parts out of Tardel's famous Flathead Ranch in California. It was finished and delivered to the current owner in 2012 who drove it only 1,468 miles before health issues forced him to stop driving. Not only is this a world class show quality roadster with provenance but it is fully dialed in and drives as nice as it looks. This car is located in Reno Nevada.
