Here’s some of the details on the 32 Ford Roadster:
What you are looking at is a Kilborne fiberglass body on a Kilborne chassis. This looks to be a pretty nice body with a lot of steel bracing inside, including the necessary bracing for the steering column and windshield. The car is sitting on a Superbell 4 inch drilled dropped axle with a chrome monoleaf spring up front. It has an 11 inch disc brake kit on the front. The rear is a triangulated 4 link with a ford 9 inch housing sitting on new Afco coil overs. There is a 28 spline
open differential in it but would require checking/rebuilding before using. There are no brakes currently on the rear. I believe it has the new style ford axle ends on it. This was sitting in a humid garage so there is a light surface rust on the chassis, nothing that a little sandpaper and elbow grease won’t clean right off.
The drivetrain currently sitting in it is a 1969 chevrolet 327 and a 700R4 transmission. The 327 came out of my buddy’s 40 coupe and ran fine when it was removed 15 years ago but I have not tried starting it. The transmission was pulled from a 92 S10 pickup that also ran when it was removed. You could take your chances and try running them both and possible work out fine (that’s what I intended to do since an engine swap on this car would be a breeze) or use them as cores for a freshen up.
New parts also included are a griffin aluminum radiator, a Hagan 3 piece hood with braces, a Brookville steel grille shell with a Dale’s stainless insert, flaming river steering box, 2 inch chopped chrome windshield frame and stanchions, front shock brackets, Bob Drake stainless spreader bars for front and rear.
I have a pile of used parts that goes with the car including some coated block hugger headers, Edelbrock aluminum 4 barrel intake, Edelbrock 600cfm electric choke carb, a whole pile of TPI fuel injection parts, some old guide 682 headlights, along with whatever extra parts I have laying around that I can think of. I am cleaning house on this one.
The grill shell and hood were just laid in place for the pictures, they are back in there original packing and set inside the car.
THE WHEELS SHOWN ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THE SALE, BUT ARE AVAILABLE FOR AN ADDITIONAL COST OF $1200.00
THE CAR WILL BE ON SOME ROLLERS FOR TRANSPORTATION ONLY
They are custom 1936 ford wheels with custom adapters made to convert them from the original large bolt circle to a 5 on 4-3/4. They were sent out for modifications, the fronts were widened to 16 x 6 ½, the rears were re-ringed to a 17 x 9 and the adapters fully welded on. Unlike the bolt-on adapters from speedway, these clear the brake calipers! I did have to put 1” spacers on the rear to clear the body as they have a deep 6″ backspacing.
Tires are American classic radials with about 2000 miles on them. A couple of the hubcaps got some small dings on
them moving the car around the garage, nothing really noticeable.
