It’s just beautiful to look at, fantastic to drive, and totally nails the nostalgia look while incorporating a bunch of modern improvements.

Spectacular all-steel street rod with all the best components. GM Performance 383 cubic inch stroker motor, 700R4 4-speed automatic, Brookville body, 4-wheel disc brakes. Stunning Nocturne Mist paint with beautiful red leather interior. Easily the best ’32 Ford roadster we’ve ever featured!

Steel cars just work better. You can argue the virtues of how easy fiberglass is to work with, but in the end, a steel car just feels right going down the road. And as everyone knows, the Brookville bodies are the best in the business, having cured any issues that may have existed with Henry’s work. As a result, this drop-dead gorgeous 1932 Ford roadster looks and feels like a million bucks. The body was obviously in great shape right out of the box, but the sheetmetal is so straight and smooth you can use it as a mirror to shave your face in the morning. The paint is a ‘60s Pontiac color called Nocturne Mist, which is a wonderful steely blue, sometimes gray and sometimes dark gray depending on the light. It’s just beautiful in person and really draws your eye to the stylish roadster shape. Of course, the usual hi-boy touches abound, including shaved door handles, an open hood with those awesome leather check straps, and big commercial headlights up front to give it a truly vintage look. It’s a vintage performance look that still resonates today and thanks to the professional work, it will always look timeless. No goofy graphics, no wild pinstripes, just the cleanest, prettiest, most well-built roadster we’ve ever seen.

The interior measures up to the standard set outside, with a spectacular red leather interior by John Miller of Hide Originals. Twin buckets make it easy to get comfortable in the low-slung roadster and the details make it truly special. Note the chrome trim around the perimeter of the interior as well as on the seat backs, the leather straps on the map pockets that mirrors the hood straps, and that cool leather surround for the Lokar shifter. Classic Instruments supplied the gauges and the polished gauge panel which has a very cool Art-Deco look, and that device under the dash is a Southwind heater with controls for the Vintage Air Gen II heater system and headlights. You also get a tilt steering column, push-button power and starting, and a new Rod Top convertible top (that’s removable in seconds) with a full set of side curtains. The trunk is neatly finished to the same standards as the interior, including a hidden WireMaster Power Panel II harness that makes it all work. The attention to detail on this rod is pretty impressive.

The engine is a 383 cubic inch crate motor from GM Performance Parts rated at 435 horsepower. There’s also a mountain of torque that makes this lightweight roadster feel like a slingshot, and thanks to a FiTech fuel injection system, it runs like a modern production car. No fussy carburetor, just quick starts and no hassles. The engine is neatly dressed with lots of polished aluminum, including the finned valve covers and matching air cleaner, and block-hugger headers were ceramic coated to look their best. Up front there’s a big 4-core aluminum radiator and you’ll note that the wiring was discreetly hidden to keep things clean. The transmission is a GM 700R4 automatic with overdrive, so this roadster is a relaxed cruiser on the highway, and it feeds a Moser 9-inch rear end with 3.70 gears and 31-spline axles with an Auburn posi unit inside. The foundation is a So-Cal pinched nose ’32 hi-boy frame which was painted to match the bodywork and the suspension is pure tradition with a So Cal 4-inch dropped front axle on a leaf spring with hairpins, and custom coil-overs in back. There’s a disc brake at each corner, with the rears stashed inside of some trick Buick aluminum drums for a vintage look, and there’s an electric E-brake, just in case. Slick 16x6 and 16x8 So-Cal Speed Shop wheels have a traditional look (and yes, those are real knock-offs) and they’re wrapped in custom big-n-little redline radials from Diamondback.

Documentation is EXTENSIVE, with several binders full of receipts, manuals, invoices, and other paperwork related to the build.

Like I said, I don’t think I’ve ever seen one this nice. It’s just beautiful to look at, fantastic to drive, and totally nails the nostalgia look while incorporating a bunch of modern improvements. It’s sorted, detailed, and ready to rock. Why build when you can own a superior car for far less cash? Call today!
