1932 Ford Highboy Roadster
This 1932 Ford Roadster is in dark Maroon with Tan.
A Brookville steel custom built body by veteran rod-builder Harry Nicks, owner of Nicks Old Car Specialties of Redlands, California.
Originally his personal car. He started from the ground up with one of his custom frames matched to a custom I Beam and torsion bar front suspension with hydraulic front shocks. Hood is custom built three piece aluminum.
Featured in American Rodder May 2007.
Powered by at 327 cubic inch V-8 Chevrolet. Overhead valves. A Crane Cam that provides 0.490 inch of lift. Rebuilt by Dougan's Engine Rebuilding and assembled by a team including George Eckhart. Fully balanced and blue printed w/ custom headers, exhaust pipes by Nicks with all weld finished polished and jet coated.
The perfect paint (a trademark of Nicks) and rich color of the dark Sikkens Maroon is a nice contrast to the steel 1932 grill and King Bee headlamps.
Interior is ultra plush with custom seats by Nicks and the leatherwork was crafted by Stitch By Stitch in Mentone, California.
Unique I-beam/torsion bar front suspension and QA1 shocks offers a very comfortable ride along with an equally sophisticated rear suspension which consists of a parallel-link suspension system which controls the movement while a torsion bar system helps keep the ride super smooth.
