This 1932 Ford Highboy Roadster has the right thoughtful details, like the flame-kissed paint and an awesome display for the V8 power
And you’ll see more of this added attention as you dig deeper into the driving dynamics, including the four-wheel disc brakes and an overdrive transmission. It all makes for a classic street machine with even more street time appeal.
The bold shade of yellow is a perfect attention-grabber that will give instant presence even at midnight. It also has a deep gloss that makes a terrific canvas to lay down the painted red hot flames that are burning hot along the side profile. And there’s the right added touch of custom flair from the pinstriping on the radiator, rear, and line highlighting the full-length body crease. Add in the clean waterfall grille, low-cut single-piece windshield, and a smooth fiberglass body, and you have the ideal style. Plus, there are the right touches of brightwork, especially with those Cragar SS wheels. They have the classic style that makes the perfect way to showcase the larger rear set for that iconic hot rod stance.
This one was built to be driven, and so the interior gives you some nice upgrades for comfort. This includes full carpeting, a velour bench seat, and even a tilt steering column. And there’s a modern take on the vintage roadster style everywhere from the wood-rimmed steering wheel with the classic V8 logo etched in the center and a tall Lokar-style shifter. While the dash is still dominated by the gauges, they now have the cool blue glow of a modern digital setup.
The sale comes with blackout sides for the engine bay, but really, you know this motor was made to be put on display. There’s a bold yellow on everything from the engine block to the smooth firewall. And this is joined by plenty of polished components to make for a tidy and thoughtful setup. This 350 cubic-inch V8 not only looks good, but it was also built to run. It was given an Edelbrock upgrade suite with a four-barrel carburetor, intake, and classic finned valve covers. And this V8 exhales with added power and rumble as shorty headers feed the sweet-sounding dual exhaust. As you look at the undercarriage photos, you spot a clean color-matched chassis with plenty of added polish and bold yellow for the suspension. The four-link setup front and rear is part of a proper hot rod layout. But you’ll also spot features you don’t find on most others, like the 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive and four-wheel disc brakes.
