This 1932 Ford highboy roadster was built for the owner in the late 1960s and was subsequently featured in the May 1969 issue of Hot Rod magazine. It is powered by a 425ci Buick V8 and finished in metallic red over a beige interior. Features include custom-painted flames, a louvered hood, a removable tan top, teardrop taillights, a roll bar, 15″ Torq Thrust wheels, a dropped front axle, chrome hairpins, Hurst/Airheart front disc brakes, dual four-barrel carburetors, and chrome exhaust headers. This 1932 Ford is now offered on behalf of the seller with magazines featuring the car and a clean Arizona title.
The steel body is finished in metallic red with flames on the louvered hood. Equipment includes a removable tan top, a chrome roll bar, a left-side mirror, teardrop taillights, and bar-style bumpers. Cracks and other flaws in the paintwork are shown in the gallery below.
American Racing Torq Thrust wheels measure 15″ up front and 16″ out back and are mounted with a mixed set of Dunlop and Michelin tires. The car is fitted with Hurst/Airheart front disc brakes, a dropped front axle, and chrome hairpins front and rear.
The bench seat, door panels, and trunk are trimmed in pleated beige vinyl with burgundy piping. Additional equipment includes lap belts, a billet shift knob, a wood dashboard, custom-embroidered door straps, and a fire extinguisher.
The leather-wrapped steering wheel sits ahead of Classic Instruments gauges including a 140-mph speedometer, a tachometer, and auxiliary gauges. The six-digit odometer shows 500 miles, and total chassis mileage is unknown.
The 425ci Buick V8 was sourced from a 1964 Riviera and is equipped with dual four-barrel carburetors, as well as capped headers feeding a dual exhaust system..
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a TH400 three-speed automatic transmission. Additional photos of the underside are provided in the gallery below.
Vintage and modern magazines featuring the car are included in the sale.
The car is titled in Arizona under the VIN AB5022835.
