FOR SALE: 1932 Ford Roadster
Motoexotica is proud to offer three incredible hot rods from the collection of Scotty Grey. Scotty was a common face, seen on Boyd Coddington\'s hit TV series American Rodder, purchasing many of his customs. They had a long standing friendship that was brought together by these amazing machines. Scotty has owned a string of well-known vehicles that, taken individually, would be the focal point of anybody\'s garage but, taken en masse, it\'s almost unbelievable. Scotty has put the trust in us to sell three of these incredible hot rods. The 1932 Ford Roadster you see here is an incredible build that was just finished in July of 2010. The best way to describe the car is an extreme attention to detail. There are many \'32 Ford Roadster\'s on the road but few come to the standard as this car. The car was built by an ex Boyd Coddington fabricator who is one of the best in the business at a cost of well into the six figures. The body is a Rod Bod\'s 1932 Ford Roadster body finished with Brookville steel fenders and running boards. The burgundy body and black fenders are nearly perfect with no imperfections. This is a show quality paint job that was done to the highest quality. There has been period pin striping added to the headlights, fuel tank and around the body. Inside, you will find a custom designed two tone pleated ultra leather interior. The seats are perfect as you would expect as is the carpet and matching leather door panels. The centerpiece of the interior is the engine turned Auburn style dash. Fitted with a full set of Classic Instruments and knobs, it looks incredible. There has also been a column mounted tachometer installed. All gauges work as do the lights. There has been a vintage heater installed (non functional) as well as a Gennie drilled shifter. The trunk has been finished to match the interior. Under the hood the 350 Cu In Chevrolet V8 is dressed with tons of nostalgic pieces. Some of these include finned valve covers, Oldsmobile style spark plug wire guides, tear drop shopped finned air cleaner, Speedway ram horn exhaust manifolds, chrome alternator, Edelbrock carb and Petronix distributor. Painted in a body matching burgundy, the engine is very nicely detailed. The V8 is connected to an automatic transmission going back to a Ford 8\" rear end. The details don\'t stop when you get to the chassis of this car. Underneath you will find a drilled and chromed wishbone suspension with a polished, dropped and drilled SoCal I beam axle in the front. The front brakes are from Wilson Welding with aluminum finned backing plates and Buick drums. The exhaust system is a ceramic coated system that sounds incredible. The suspension in the rear is coil overs which gives the car a very nice ride. The wheels on all four corners are 16\" SoCal Knock Off aluminum slotted wheels that are all safety wired. They are wrapped with Firestone bias ply tires which are all new. This is an incredible roadster that has nothing but the top of the line options installed on it. There were no short cuts taken in the build and as the owner says \"it\'s embarrassing to admit the total cost of the build\". VIN number is 181393600 and the current mileage shows 345. The car is being sold on a clean California title, titled as a 1932 Ford.
