Seller Submission: 1932 Ford Highboy Roadster

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.

Little deuce coupe, you don't know what I got...oh wait, I don't have fenders or a pretty much know everything..

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.

Are these things make in South or North Dakota?

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.

Is that Jack Kevorkian's VW Bus in the background?
