This 1932 Ford Roadster is our pick for “Car of the Week”! Congrats to Steve Halasz of Lakeville. Steve did the work on the car himself so we’ll let him tell the story about it.
The car has a glass body on an aftermarket frame.
In the fall of 2016 I purchased the car from the son of the gentleman who started the build in 1999. He was about 20% complete when he got sick and was unable to finish it.
Over the next two years I worked on completing the car, except for the seat and covering the top, as I don’t sew.
The driveline was in it and the body was already on the frame, both from Ravon.
The engine is a small block Chevy 350 with a Turbo 350 transmission and 9” Ford Rear end. Front is a 2” drop chrome straight axel with a transverse leaf spring and the rear is a QA1 coil over set up.
The paint is PPG Ferrari Red and Hod Rod Flats charcoal. The car gets it unique look from the 4” chopped windshield.
My wife, Amy, and I have really enjoyed the car and even became members of the Hoods and Skirts car club. The car club has about 30 amazing members that have become like family to us.
