Are you looking for a modern-tech ''32 Ford hi-boy roadster that doesn''t try to re-create the past. Freshly built, this ''32 wears its two-tone paint job like a tuxedo and skillfully dodges tradition while creating a minimalist rod for the 21st century. Two-tone paint on a ''32 is nothing new, but the black and silver scheme on this roadster definitely gives it a slick high-tech look. It was finished so recently that you can still smell the fresh paint, so it''s poised to start collecting trophies and tearing up pavement right away. The body''s fiberglass, of course, but that also means it was finished to an exceptionally high standard, particularly since it''s now wearing black. The dividing line between the colors follows the body molding and the edge is laser-sharp. The painted grille shell has a trick look that shows someone was thinking carefully about how it would look before a drop of paint was sprayed, and unnecessary stuff like door handles and hinges were left off the build sheet. Bright work consists of a stainless grille insert, chrome spreader bars, and that trick windshield that lacks a header bar that gives it a very custom look. Out back, ''39 Ford taillights were turned on their sides to create a new look using an old favorite. The interior is even more impressive than the bodywork, with tri-tone leather seats that echo the slick, contemporary look with spectacular stitchcraft that''s really impressive. Buckets in a roadster is a novel idea, and these low-back chairs sit right and feature ornate upholstery that looks like it cost a fortune. Custom door panels were made to match, but they keep it simple and let the ornate seat stitching do most of the talking. A wood-rimmed Grant steering wheel warms things up so it''s not all monochromatic, and the instruments are neatly arrayed on the dash just under the Clarion AM/FM/CD stereo head unit. A B&M shifter manages the TH400 3-speed automatic that''s probably overkill for this lightweight flyer and with a tilt wheel and billet pedals, it''s easy to get comfortable. More black carpets in the trunk keep things simple, and even with the battery back there, there''s plenty of room for long cruises. As with the rest of the car, the 350 cubic inch crate motor is fresh and has just test and tune miles on it today. There''s no need to reinvent the wheel here, so it sticks to the basics with an Edelbrock intake and a Holley carb, plus an HEI ignition system. Everything between the firewall and radiator is new, including the radiator itself, so it runs beautifully and has been dressed to show off with a few chrome bits and a set of beautiful ram''s horn exhaust manifolds. For modern handling, tubular A-arms and coil-over shocks handle the front end, while the 9-inch rear with 3.50s inside hangs off a 4-link setup, all of which give this Ford a big handling advantage over the old buggy spring rods that you usually see. Staggered Torque Thrust wheels wear fat Goodyear performance radials instead of skinnies and slicks, with 225/50/16s up front and 285/40/17s out back. Not radical, but beautifully built and definitely a bit outside the usual hi-boy look, this ''32 roadster is a fresh build that''ll be impressive for years to come. Call today!
