In 1932 Ford unveiled the replacement for the mighty Model A. In the process, they made what many automotive historians and enthusiasts consider to be one of the most significant contributions to the motoring world-The Flathead Ford V-8 engine. Never before, had the American public been offered the opportunity to purchase a low cost, well-powered automobile until Ford offered its model 18 for public sale. With the first-produced V-8 in history, the Ford Motorcar Company revitalized the enthusiasm that would carry the company name through an economically depressed market and into a highly lucrative future.
With only a few short months of its introduction, 1932 Coupes and Roadsters could often could be found in garages where inventive mechanics, teenagers and enthusiasts were hard at work modeling the 32 into a car entirely their own. The 1932 Ford represented one of the purest, basic bodied cars built. Unwittingly, Henry and Edsel Ford had created the car that would drive a simple hobby into a lucrative forum for turning stock cars into moving forms of art. There were virtually no limitations placed on the Street Rodder. Whether the car was chopped, channeled, turned into a highboy or just mildly rodded, the end result was unquestionably a Street Rod.
Today, the passion for Hot Rodding has created a myriad of manufacturers making 32 Ford Roadster bodies out of fiberglass. In fact, for each real steel 32 Roadster you find, you may see 20 or 30 clones made of fiberglass. The 32 Ford full fendered Roadster offered for sale by owner is one that is ALL STEEL, made by Ford Motor Company and done in the timeless Resto-Rod style. Every aspect of this GORGEOUS roadster has been professionally restored and upgraded.
Roger Simonatti, an award winning Hot Rod builder, was chosen to build this car from the ground up. Known for his attention to detail, Simonatti started out by disassembling the roadster completely, bolt by bolt. Once that was completed, the roadsters frame was dissected until all that remained was frame rails. Simonatti boxed those original 32 rails and designed custom fabricated crossmembers to replace those that were removed. A Kugel independent front suspension setup with an 84 Dodge Omni steering rack was utilized to handle suspension and steering duties up front; a Jaguar rear end, with dual coil over springs and inboard brakes was utilized to handle the suspension chores to the rear.

One of the most distinctive aspects of this Street Rod lies in its exterior appearance. Though it is undeniable a. . .FULLY HAND BUILT Street Rod, the distinctive body of the 32 Ford Roadster is still very apparent.

Specialists, Ken Jones, finished the Roadsters sleek appearance. He fitted the seats and rumble seat in tan leather with a custom cut walnut finished carpet. Classic Instruments provided the gauges for the stock 32 dashboard. Overall, the interior appearance is very attractive, as there is few extraneous items interfering with the overall clean lines.
