Gorgeous 1932 Ford Roadster Has A 383ci Stroker V8

One of the most iconic cars to make a hot rod out of is the 1932 Ford Roadster. It’s the car many people think of when they hear the word “hot rod,” and this ride is a fantastic example. This 1932 Ford Roadster is the result of lots of work an about $90,000 in cost according to Rueben Scharaman. Rueben is a bit of a legend in the hot rod world having been involved in car building since 1956.

This 1932 Brookville Roadster has a steel body placed on a red hammer finished, powder coated frame and dash. The car is built in a traditional ’32 tube frame style with lots of chrome and billet parts. The underside of the car is almost as beautiful as the top with plenty of polished stainless steel and chrome. Not only does this car look good, but it also performs too.

The engine is a Chevy 383 cubic inch stroker with a new B&M crate 350 transmission and a 9-inch Ford rear with 31 spline axles. We know how some purists feel about a Chevy motor in a Ford, but it should be impressively fast. The 1932 Ford Roadster has only 927 miles on it since the build was completed.

Polished Wilwood disc brakes peek out through the vintage looking wheels. The car has power steering and a billet pump with a fully chromed and powder coated undercarriage. The vehicle has a Krugal IFS front with Aldan coilovers and Staggered BFG tires.

Inside the car are Classic dome gauges with a billet background, IDIDIT tilt column, and custom upholstery with ostrich and red leather. The radiator in the car is polished aluminum, and the firewall is polished stainless steel. The seller is asking $43,495 for the car, and it’s easy to see the build cost twice that amount as claimed. The last convertible Ford we talked about was a 1959 Edsel Corsair Convertible.

    Chev moter in a Ford should NOT even get mentioned on a Ford Site. Amen. Shame on you Fors Authority.
