1932 Ford Roadster For consignment, the quintessential hot rod format with an open engine compartment with extra gleam factor added on, big power, no top, no fenders, no running board, just pure and unadulterated Hot Rodding at its finest. A simple front windshield, hopped up suspension and California here we come. Drop the hanky baby... Exterior We have nicely preserved simple small panels all draped in a soothing Mint Green over a fiberglass body. A fiberglass radiator cowl in Mint with an enclosed radiator behind a metal 32 Ford bug screen with a hint of maroon peeking through is flanked by stalk mounted headlights on either side with integral turn signals are all noted. Just below is a polished spreader bar with a polished plate bracket and we get the first glimpse of the Super Bell front axle with chrome shocks. The tricked out engine is totally uncovered and is looking fab for all the world to see. The rounded firewall cowl frames the simple straight low profile windshield and as we move downward, Bear Claw latches and handle shaved doors lead us rearward to the rounded off rear deck. Here we see no bumpers, no fenders, and just rounded LED style tail lights and the outline of the trunk. The rear suspension peeks out underneath all this excellence. Very stripped down, very lightweight, and very cool. 15- inch black painted steel wheels with some edge dish trimmings and a central moon cap are now wrapped with staggered wide whitewall tires. KISS. Interior A swing of the front edge hinged doors and the ultimate in simplicity and weight loss is present with an oxblood ultra leather and piped bench. Smooth bolsters and deep tuck and roll inserts make up the seating surfaces and this pattern continues into the rearmost side panels. Door panels are matching and have vertical panels with some stitching in them as well as deep accordian style map pockets. The dash is new, and has been fitted with 2 large round antique cream faced Classic Instruments gauges. A few lights are on the bottom of this dash. We see a Mint Green adjustable steering wheel with a smaller than stock 1940 Ford steering wheel. Deep red carpeting floods the floors and a B&M shifter with a metal flake red topper is in the center within reach of the driver. Drivetrain Wide open for inspection is the Mint Green painted 350ci V8. This has a single Holley 4-barrel carburetor on top, and it is protected and aided in airflow by a retro cool open element Mint Green topped air cleaner. Custom Lincoln style rocker covers, again bathed in Mint Green, add to the period perfect look. Strapped to the rear of this mill, is a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission. Headers, supple wiring, and hoses abound. An black radiator and electric fan is now cooling this engine, and for the rear axle its a Ford 9 inch with Positraction and 3.23 gearing. There is header wrap on parts of the exhaust to keep things protected and a seamless stainless steel dual exhaust system with stainless steel mufflers funnel spent gasses to the rear of the car. Undercarriage This fiberglass body sits on a square tube aftermarket box frame with tubular bracing throughout which is painted in more Mint. All the rest is great with not a spec of road dirt, looking clean and of course rust free. The suspension in front is a Super Bell system with a transverse leaf spring, chrome shocks and cross steering. On back a 4 bar setup with adjustable coil overs. Power disc brakes are on front, and power drums for the back with an adjustable proportioning valve and residual line valve. A very nice undercarriage presentation. Drive-Ability This old skool rodder fired right up and on the test track it wants to keep going in a straight line. I wrestled it though to take some turns and it did so effortlessly, it came to a quick stop, and did so bias free. The interior was comfy, and all functions were working at the time of my drive. The Classic Instrument gauges are easy to read and the wind noise was surprisingly very subtle. A roddy and racy fiberglass hot rod body all stripped down for less weight, which translates to more speed. Simple to wrench on with the open engine, and a quaint but comfy and all encompassing interior. A souped up, rodded, shaved handle door, fender-less racer, yearning for the next run on the flats.
