1932 FORD CUSTOM ROADSTER
*Includes Buyer Commission
Lot #1309 - To be able to compete today for America's Most Beautiful Roadster (AMBR) requires a very large team of professionals and a large budget. This car was built over a period of ten years representing our best effort. Over ninety percent of the car is all one-off parts. The chassis and suspension uses purchased calipers and coilovers, everything else was custom built specifically for this car. The body is all steel, starting with pieces from Swedish rear '32 quarters, with the rest of the panels on the body fabricated on an Eckold machine. The front fenders are made from seven pieces. This car is about fabrication and thought. There is a lot of both in this one-off car and to build a unique '32 Roadster, after 78 years being the most popular Hot Rod of all time, is a daunting task. The results speak for themselves. It is a timeless car that will stand the test of time and will still look as good with regard to design and execution for many years to come. It was so well received that it won three awards at the America's Most Beautiful Roadster Show in 2010, "Outstanding Engineering", "Achievement Award" and "Outstanding Paint." Car was shown at SEMA in 2009 and 2010.
