Description for Ford Roadster 1932

Blue Hi boy
The classic 1932 Ford, better known as "the Deuce," has been, and always will be, the quintessential hot rod. Almost immediately, it was modified and quickly gained fame on America's dry lakes, the Bonneville salt and early drag strips. Popular culture only added to its appeal, including the Beach Boys' hit "Little Deuce Coupe", and George Lucas' classic 1973 film, American Graffiti, which reintroduced old-style hot rods to a new generation and rekindled the street-rodding movement, which many thought had died out by the late 1960s.
The popularity of the 1932 Ford has always remained strong. In the early days of hot rodding, Deuces of any body style were cheap and plentiful. Being simple cars made them easy to strip down and modify. Their stock frames were strong, and Ford's new-for-1932 "Flathead" V-8 engine responded very well to performance upgrades. A cultural phenomenon, an entire aftermarket industry, and countless publications were born from these humble beginnings. Fast forward some 40-plus years. A new generation of street rodders, including UP John Buttera, Boyd Coddington, Sam and Chip Foose, and countless others began to underscore the importance of detail and injected much higher standards of craftsmanship into their creations. They emphasized clean, uncluttered, and complete bodywork and comfortable, well-trimmed interiors. Engine bays and undercarriage areas were also highly detailed, and often as stunning as the rest of the car. Drivability and reliability, rather than brute force, became prime considerations.
Innovation and resourcefulness are the hallmarks of the hot rodder's art form and while the basic overhead-valve V-8 engine remains the power unit of choice today, a select few hot rodders demand something a bit more exotic for their rides. San Diego, California's Pete Aardema, a Bonneville record-holding engine builder, is one of them. Aardema's single-overhead cam {SOHC) kit graces the show-quality 1932 Ford Hi-Boy offered here, which was pro-built with over ( $82,000 invested ) . Based on a Westcott body mounted on a TCI frame, the Hi-Boy is powered by a 300-hp 350 Chevy with the aforementioned and very cool Aardema SOHC conversion. The raked DuVall windshield and new Grey interior provide a very clean look, and the ride is smooth and steering sharp with the chromed independent Jaguar front and rear suspension. Riding on a set of American Racing Torq-Thrust wheels and new BFG tires all around, this vehicle is a clean, tasteful, and refreshing take on the classic Hi-Boy.
