32 Ford Hi-Boy Roadster
Posted by mrmike on Friday, May 11, 2018 8:54 PM

I built this '32 Ford 12 years ago and I decided this morning I would update it.  Here's what it looked like back then.

This afternoon I partially disassembled the '32 and cleaned it up and started reassembling the hot rod.  I bought these wheels at NNL East, but I forgot who the seller was.  They look like Cragar SS mags (my favorite) and the downside of these wheels is that they have no mounts or wheel backs.  So, I made some.

The engine is still the same 302 CI V-8 with an Autolite In-line 4 barrel carb and intake manifold.

Nice upgrade, and great choice of wheels! They look similar to the sets Steve Zimmerman offers.

I wish I could remember who had offered those wheels and it might have been Steve Zimmerman who did.  I just can't remember.  I do remember that the vendor was next to Don Yost at NNL East in the small room with the snack bar.
