Description:

1932 Ford roadster Leather

This is an investment grade, steel 1932 Ford Roadster. It is a rust free surviving hot rod from Los Angeles in the 1940's. It has an original rust free; body, frame, floor pan, firewall, fenders, gas tank, grill and shell, fender braces, front splash shield, and more.


Until 1932 Ford's sales were declining against Chevrolet. Henry Ford decided a “poor mans V-8” was needed in the Ford lineup. The only automobiles with V-8 s in the early 1930s cost $3,500 and up and the Fords were under $500. This was Ford's first V-8 and the car has a substantially stronger frame, which is why it has been the first choice for a hot rods for decades to follow.


With the new Flathead V-8, Ford captured an astounding 60% of the market in 1932. It was also the first year Ford placed a grill over the radiator. Ford was back on the map. The 1932 Ford roadster was and is a very collectable and celebrated car.


  • Highly detailed Ford 351 Cleveland engine and the Ford AOD transmission both professionally rebuilt in 2018, completely ground smooth, and painted with Imron.

  • Complete MSD ignition system.

  • Chrome plated, modified Jaguar XKE four wheel independent suspension..

  • Polished Halibrand wheels.

  • Complete Wilwood brake system with new Jaguar rotors.

  • Polished stainless steel exhaust system.

  • English Leather interior and rumble seat with a 2” chopped folding Hartz cloth top with side curtains.

  • Professionally detailed paint by Seth Goss in June 2018.

  • Rare tri-power (three two barrels carbs) intake manifold.

There are 10 to 12 tri-power manifolds known to have survived Ford's 366 NASCAR program, according to three Ford tri-power experts, including a gentlemen who worked for Ford when these were cast. However, this manifold has a water passage in the rear, making it one of one.


I have owned the car since 1975, but have the history of it back into the 50's. Out of the 25 shows I officially attended, this '32' took awards from 23 of them, two of which were 'best of show'.


The car has about 12,000 miles on it and is well sorted. It looks great, rides fantastic, sounds fantastic, and always draws a crowd. Because of this car's rust free starting point and what it has become, it is a very rare and desirable car.


If you have serious interest, please contact me and I will send a complete 38 page PDF file detailing the car and it's history. Thank you for your interest.
