Prices for original examples of the Beach Boys’ little Deuce Coupe (I know, this one is a roadster…not a coupe) have risen out of the range of the common collector, and the custom kit car industry long ago stepped in to fill the gap. This is a good thing because the few remaining ’32 Fords that aren’t powered by Chevy 350s should remain as such for the good of mankind…so if you want a ’32 Ford, you should get a 2015 model. Like this 1932 Ford Highboy Roadster kit offered for $15,000 in Byron, TX via craigslist. Seller submission from Bill.
The ubiquitous Small Block Chevy V8 is probably the most logical engine to put into a home built Ford kit car, because pound-for-pound and dollar-for-dollar they win just about every conceivable competition. And it makes the die-hard Ford guys go nuts.
On the inside you’ll see the classic Dakota Digital instrument cluster that is used on many similar hot rods, a basic steering wheel and a shifter. Not much else on the inside…but you don’t drive this car if you are looking for something with cup holders and blueteeth.
