1932 Ford Roadster Chrome – Candy Red For Sale
1932 Ford Roadster Chrome – Candy Red Details
REAL DEAL ALL METAL FRAME AND BODY
Looking at the car we believe the car started out as a Coupe and was customized into a roadster.
Original Steel Body
The real deal. Channeled over the frame about 6 inches. A 1960’s survivor period hot rod with a candy red paint job ( red candy over gold flake). Someone did upgrade the car in the 80’s with disc brakes and a tilt-telescoping column. This makes the car very cushy and easy to drive, but you could change these things easily to turn the car back into a correct period piece. Our shop is ready and able to do anything you wanted to do with this car. This car is a bitch’n survivor. Leave it just the way it is, or add bolt on vintage speed equipment to the engine. Fun stuff for us or you to do.

This is a cool looking roadster, with all of the extras. It’s a running driving vehicle, ready for weekend cruises or everyday driving. A solid steel rust-free body, nice paint, and cool interior.
The car itself is well put together with a boxed 32 frame, a small block V8, automatic Turbo 350 3 speed transmission, rear drum brakes, cool dropped filled front axle, front disc brakes, old school horn, Edelbrock valve covers, and intake manifold. Weiland ram flow air filter, Holley Spread Bore carb, new hoses, ceramic headers, chrome radiator overflow, drop front axle, four-bar suspension front end, chrome alternator, shaved door handles, dual exhaust. B-L-C headlamps (headlights) chrome starter. Also, it has a tilt, telescope steering column.
It is in good working order, headlights and tail lights are functioning, the steering column adjusts to fit any size person that may be driving. All real steel hood pieces attach and detach with ease, all gauges light up, good tires, the weather stripping has been kept in good condition, brake lights work, paint is good and the chrome on the car is in great condition.
THERE IS NO FIBERGLASS ON OR IN THIS CAR!
This is the real deal, not one of those fiberglass or reproduction steel bodies. Many of those are nice cars, but you can’t really speak those in the same sentence as a car like this no matter how nice they are. I wonder who drove this car around in 1932 as a stocker? Or in 1942? 52? 62?
This car has patina only a real hot rod and time can provide. The bitch’n candy paint job from the 60’s – 70’s, probably lacquer is incredible, but there are touch-ups, rubs, and noticeable signs of wear that show up like wrinkles on a grandad’s face who has done and seen it all. If you want an indoor show car or a new Acura, this is not for you. If you want the real deal that shows it’s age and worth, this is it. I personally don’t love all the cars we sell and work on, but I am really into this car. I would just do a little minor personal taste work to it if I could keep it. It is up to you.
The turn signals do work, and the front ones are in some of the pics. I just had to take them off though because they were so hideously ugly I just could not look at them again . They quickly snap back on, but I would suggest some that are not so painful to look at.
