This 1932 Ford Highboy Roadster has been fully built with a Brookville reproduction body and finished in Molten Copper Sunset paint over a cream white vinyl interior. The removable lightweight convertible “bop top”, also in white is by the Sid ChaversCo. The power for this rear-wheel-drive Highboy is derived from a 327 cubic-inch Chevrolet V8 engine mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission. The build process has added equipment such as front disc brakes, rear drum brakes, QA1 adjustable coilovers, and parallel 4-link suspension. The odometer shows 700 miles and is being sold with a clear Indiana title.
The all-steel roadster body sits on a 106" wheelbase custom chassis, both finished in Molten Copper Sunset with ghost flames being running from the front grill and extending into the rear quarters. During the build processes, it’s noted the entire exterior was wet sanded with 800 grit sandpaper prior to the clear coat being applied with consistent pigment across all panels. The firewall and undercarriage were finished in Wimbledon white. The exterior is lacking a front and rear bumper as the restoration process removed these items to enhance the look of the Highboy. The top is provided by Sid Chavers Company and is a white removable Bop Top which can be removed, broken down, and stored in the trunk of the car.
The wheels are produced by Crager with spinner style center caps. Mickey Thompson performance tires adorn each wheel, the wheel specifications are 26X6.00XR15 Fronts and 30X12.00XR15LT rears. The parallel four-link rear suspension with adjustable shock absorbers is provided by QA1. The front axle is chrome plated with upgraded front disc and rear drum brakes.
The cabin is trimmed with cream-colored vinyl and black piping throughout the bench seat and matching door panels upholstered with the classic "tuck-n-roll" style stitching. The dash is finished in the same Molten Copper Sunset paint as the exterior contrasted by black carpeting throughout the cab.
The two spoke steering wheel and column is finished in matching Wimbledon White to match the firewall and underside. The gauges are by Stewart Warner and include a 160mph speedometer, 8k tachometer, and accessory gauges such as water temperature, oil pressure, battery voltage, and fuel level; all housed in a steel trim plate. The six-digit odometer shows just under 700 miles.
The modified 327ci Chevrolet V8 engine is completed with a Crane 510 lift hydraulic roller camshaft, roller tip rockers, Edelbrock performance aluminum heads, Mallory Unilite distributor, and an aluminum finned oil pan. The engine is mated to a GM TH350 automatic 3-speed transmission which transmits power to a Ford nine-inch Detroit locker with 3.50 gears.
The exhaust flows through a set of custom-built lake style headers with the entire system ceramic coated. The front suspension consists of QA1 adjustable shock absorbers mounted to a traditional style I-beam that has been chrome plated. The rear is supported with a parallel four-link suspension. All suspension components have been chromed or painted, additional photos showing the underside of the vehicle are provided in the gallery.
This 1932 Roadster is currently titled as a 2011 Ford 32A with a VIN assigned by the state of California. There have only been 700 miles put on the vehicle since the restoration was completed.
