Ford Roadster 1932 Description

For you guys who have been looking at hot rod books for decades, his slick little 1932 Ford roadster might look a little familiar. It's a recent build designed to emulate the way-out creations of the '60s, nd with modern materials and quality, he effect is still just as stunning as it might have been 50 years ago.Built by Craig Smith and called "The Liberace," this fantastic '32 Ford roadster definitely has that old school customizer's vibe. It's based on a Rod & Race '32 Ford roadster body, n fiberglass of course, nd has been fully customized the old school way. If there's a modification possible, his car probably has it, rom being chopped, haved and channeled, o the elimination of the doors (do you really need them when the car is less than three feet tall?), o reworking the beltline trim to make it look clean and sleek. Then there's the nose, hich emulates some of the far-out creations of the '60s, iving The Liberace a very unique, ne-off look. The paint is expertly done in pearl white with purple inserts and looks spectacular out in the sun. Other details include Frenched '59 Cadillac taillights, ustang fog lights, nd even a set of marker lights from a semi-truck, ll working together to make this car totally unique. It's long, ean, ow, nd loud, hich is exactly the point with a car like this.The interior is a tasteful blending of '60s sensibilities with modern comfort, s the bench seat was totally reworked to make this roadster comfortable for all-day cruises. On the other hand, he purple pleated vinyl inserts and side panels are totally old school, ith sparkles just to reinforce the point. Black carpets keep it from being overwhelming and that '55 Chevy steering wheel was smoothed and painted to match the bodywork. The instrument panel, f you can call it that, s art more than function, ith a center-mounted speedometer and auxiliary gauges in their own pod down out of sight. And nothing's cooler than cruising with your hand hanging from that tall Lokar shifter, omplete with eyeball shift knob. Even the trunk is neatly finished in the same materials and offers remote charging posts for the hidden battery as well as a master cut-off switch. No radio, o heat, o top, o windows, ust your back-to-the-60s rod that's all about fun. A 350 cubic inch GM crate motor provides about 270 horsepower, hich is plenty in this flyweight roadster. The focus was on reliability, o they added a Pertronix ignition, peedway polished Edelbrock intake manifold and carburetor, nd a set of gorgeous headers with Volkswagen Beetle stingers and baffles, o it's not overwhelming to drive long distances. Clearly the goal was to have a no-compromises old-school rod. Its backed by a 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission and a 10-bolt rear, o highway cruising is truly effortless, nd the entire box-section frame was custom made and painted to match the body. Simple transverse leaf springs at both ends do their job, long with chrome hairpins up front and ladder bars out back, he way they did it decades ago. Chrome kidney bean-style wheels are pure 1963 and carry bias-ply whitewalls, ith the rears being vintage drag slicks. Too cool!This car has a long, ong list of awards behind it, ore than a few magazine features, nd an awesome pedigree. If you grew up during a certain time period, his car is already speaking your language. Call today!
