Vehicle Overview

Supercharged Flathead-Powered ’32 Ford Roadster Highboy 5-Speed


This ’32 Ford roadster was built under prior ownership utilizing a reproduction fiberglass body and a boxed steel frame. Power is provided by a supercharged flathead Ford V8 mated to a five-speed manual transmission and a Currie 9” rear end, and additional equipment includes front disc brakes, a dropped front axle, American Racing 14” and 15” wheels, rear coilovers, a Rootlieb steel hood, and a black BopTop removable soft top. The interior is outfitted with a gray black bench seat, a tilting steering column, lap seatbelts, and Stewart-Warner instrumentation. Acquired by the current owner in 2019, this Deuce highboy is now offered on dealer consignment with build documents, recent service records, and a California title.

The fiberglass body is from Wescott’s Auto of Demascus, Oregon, and it is mounted to a boxed steel frame said to be sourced from So-Cal Speed Shop. The car is finished in metallic gray with black and orange pinstriping and features a 2”-chopped windshield, a Sid Chavers BopTop removable soft top, a Rootlieb louvered steel hood with removable side panels, and SoCal Speed Shop H4 headlights with chrome buckets and integrated turn signals.

A Vega-style steering box has been installed, and braking is handled by front discs and rear drums.

The banjo-style steering wheel is mounted to a tilting column, and an AutoMeter boost gauge has been added to the support bracket. An engine-turned bezel houses Stewart-Warner instrumentation consisting of a 160-mph speedometer, an 8k-rpm tachometer, and gauges for fuel level, coolant temperature, oil pressure, and alternator output. The five-digit odometer shows 3,300 miles.

The flathead V8 was built for an 8:1 compression ratio with Edelbrock aluminum cylinder heads, and induction is through a Weiand 471 blower and an Edelbrock 600-cfm carburetor. Additional features include an electronic ignition distributor, a 12-volt electrical system, an electric fuel pump, and an aluminum radiator cooled by a SPAL electric puller fan. Short-tube headers flow into a dual exhaust system with polished finishers, and a battery cutoff switch is mounted in the trunk.
