Plum Crazy Purple
One glance at this 1932 Ford Highboy Roadster and you can instantly tell it is a full custom build. In fact, as you dig into the details, you are going to find features that you may never thought of adding but are absolutely awesome on a hot rod (like the Harley-Davidson headlights.) It all makes for a V8 street machine that ensures people will remember it long after you leave the stoplight.
This is a steel bodied Ford roadster, but the bold paint laid on top is pure Mopar awesome. The Plum Crazy is a High Impact color that\'s on the best Hemi muscle cars, and so it instantly identifies this as a speedy custom. The build was a three-year, $85k labor of love, and it was completed less than 500 miles ago. So the metal looks terrific and the paint has a deep luster. This has a lot of the classic features you love on a hot rod, like the waterfall grille, custom pinstriping, and the smooth fender-free body. And this is integrated with some cool distinct touches, like rounded low-cut windshield and rear lights integrated into the chrome bumper. And the smaller Harley-Davidson headlights make the grille look taller so that this Highboy looks even higher. This idea of classic and custom really seems to come together nicely on true knock-off Dayton wire wheels done in a gloss black.
A roadster like this was meant to be open to the world, and so you get a great-looking interior. The metal tub bucket seats have the classic/simple style that you\'re supposed to have in a speed machine like this, but the padded inserts with leather upholstery signal the build is first-class. It\'s clean and complete, right down to rumble seat style trunk. This is a driver-focused environment with a wood and chrome sports steering wheel, Lokar shifter, and a dash dominated by clean and crisp Equus gauges.
The engine bay may have a smooth purple firewall, but it has proper blue oval power in the middle. The bright Ford Racing valve covers are a dead giveaway that you have a well-built 302 cubic-inch V8. It includes a Holley four-barrel carburetor, upgraded intake, and a hot cam. Plus, there are the right supporting components, like an HEI ignition and an aluminum radiator w/electric fan. And for those few people who don\'t take note of the zoomie-style exhaust headers, the growl will certainly grab their attention. As you look over the whole build, you\'ll spot a strong custom chassis that\'s color-matched in purple so you can put a mirror under this one at the car shows. You can even see pinstriping on the rear diff cover! There\'s also the three-speed automatic transmission, four-link rear with adjustable coilovers, and four-wheel disc brakes.
