You can just tell when a hot rod gets it right. This 1932 Ford Highboy Roadster is a fresh restoration with terrific classic details, like the triple-deuces on the V8. But there are also the right upgrades to be a bold street machine, like the bright orange that's over every inch (even the undercarriage!)
This car was completed earlier this year and there's barely over 800 miles on it since then. So the fresh look you see in the pictures is exactly what you get in reality, too. House of Kolor Tangelo Pearl is one of those amazing modern paints that requires multiple stages, plenty of clearcoat, and a professional hand applying it. But the results are worth it. This hot rod has a deep metallic luster that loves to highlight the classic highboy curves every time the sunshine finds this custom build. And the brightwork elements love to showcase an investment in vintage style, like the waterfall grille, large headlight surrounds, and the polished salt flat-style wheels. As you dig further into the details, you're going to love everything from the classic-styletailights w/modern LEDs, to the leather tie-down straps of the hood. The total package give the impression of a thoughtful build that will make people pay extra attention.
There's a tan folding roof that adds to the hot rod profile, and if you like the way this looks against the orange, then you're going to love the interior. With so few miles on the build, everything remains quite fresh. The carpeting is plush and the pleated seat is supple and durable. Once again, you can tell that this was a detail-oriented build by the way the shift boot and steering wheel leather match the seat and door panels. There's even a nice chrome tilt steering column that goes with the piston-top shifter. Your view from behind the wheel is dominated by the full gauge package, including large AutoMeter AutoGauge tach directly in front of you. But since this is built to be a cool cruiser, you also have a Autosound AM/FM radio cleanly installed that has stereo speakers and Bluetooth. That means you get modern tunes in this very vintage ride.
An engine bay like this deserves to be on display for the world to see. The color-matched block, bright valve covers, and plenty more polished components all look great. But we all know people really will gravitate to the three intakes on top. That's the unmistakable sign of the three dual-barrel Stromberg carbs that make the ultra-cool triple-deuce setup. Plus, there's even more power going through this small block Chevy V8 thanks to the Edelbrock intake and shorty headers feeding the dual exhaust. This makes nice power, and it fires up with the eagerness of a quality build. Plus, there are great driving upgrades, like the aluminum radiator w/electric fan, rack & pinion steering, and a 700R4 four-speed transmission w/highway-friendly overdrive. As you look underneath, you're going to spot nothing but tangelo and polished components, so you know you'll be bringing a mirror to put under this one at the car shows. But don't forget to also spot great suspension components, like the four-link drop-axle front, front disc brakes, and adjustable coilovers in the rear.
This is the cool '32 Ford with plenty of style and all the right features to make it easy to show off everywhere. So if you like a complete and fresh build with all the right thoughtful touches, call today!
