If you've done some research about the history of Ford production, then you've probably heard about the 1930s. The era of the '1932 Ford' resembled a series of three cars, the Model A, Model 18, and Model 46, all of which would go on to replace the Model A. The Model 18 in particular is a very significant piece in American automotive history as it was the very first affordable, mass-marketed car to be given the legendary V8. The powerful V8, coupled with an affordable price made the car an ideal platform for hot-rodders, and so legacy was born. This 1932 Ford Roadster 350 is reported to be a rare, award-winning example, and is currently up for sale in Sunshine State, Florida.
Visually, you can tell that the car in the example is a show-quality product. Its Brandywine paint gleaming as if it was rolled out of the showroom just a few moments ago. The seller claim's that the Roadster is "chromed out", and his statement is backed up by some rather polished exterior bits, from the massive front grille, bumper, and headlight frames to the vintage chrome wheels that are wrapped in a set of particularly meaty tires at the rear, in pure hot-rod fashion. Being a roadster, the car also comes with a body matching soft top, giving it a fine finish. the unit also happens to be a custom Eddie Bosio build. Just by looking at it, one would surely find it hard to believe that this 1932 Ford Roadster 350 still retains its original interior from nearly 90 years ago, but according to the owner, that is what you are greeted with when entering this car. A plush Burgundy interior, with a fine finish wooden dashboard, and a few chrome accents within the cabin make it an ideal color blend with the exterior.
Powering the vintage hot-rod-inspired roadster is a reportedly rebuilt Chevy 3rd generation small block, 350ci ZZ3 engine capable of producing 345hp, although the exact output of this particular car hasn't been specified. What has been mentioned is that the rebuilt engine has less than 1,000 miles on it, along with a transmission with fewer than 300 miles, and a drivetrain with less than 30,000 miles. An automatic transmission handles the power and sends it to the rear wheels.
