1932 Ford custom roadster (4K)

This 1932 Ford custom roadster was professionally built from the ground-up to show-quality standards. Previously owned by Richard Rawlings of Gas Monkey Garage, the all-steel Ford is finished in Plum Crazy Purple metallic, laser-straight and fully sanded and buffed to a mirror finish, with pinstripes laid out by Daniel Gay. The fully boxed chassis is as nicely detailed as the body, featuring a chrome dropped front axle with Vega steering box and chromed hairpins. The rear is a Currie nine-inch differential with chrome ladder bars. Hydraulic brakes with period-correct Buick finned front drums and custom Wilson backing plates handle stopping chores.

Power comes from an HC-code 327ci small-block topped with six Stromberg carburetors on an Offenhauser intake, plus custom Rams Horn exhausts with functional cutouts, all backed by a Muncie four-speed transmission. The two-tone black and white tuck and roll interior, inspired by the Tom McMullen roadster, features a “glide” adjustable front seat. Another interior highlight is the Mooneyes engine-turned Auburn-style dash panel. All this rolls on chrome Smoothie Mercury rims with Firestone wide whitewall tires.
