Barrett-Jackson countdown: 1932 custom Ford Roadster

This is the 21st in a 30-day countdown to Barrett-Jackson’s annual Las Vegas collector car auction

Lot No. 732 is a well-known Ford Roadster built as a West Coast hot rod that has been turning heads since it was first built in the 1960s.

The one-off custom chassis was built for the original all-steel 1929 body that was stretched two inches to increase comfort.

The restoration utilized only components of the best quality.

Inside, the car has Germany square-weave pleated leather upholstery that was custom-fabricated and tailored.

Under the hood, the roadster has a 540cid V8 paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The all-aluminum engine assembly and blower cost more than $40,000.

In total, the receipts for this car have soared past $340,000.

Barrett-Jackson’s annual Las Vegas auction is scheduled for September 27-29 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.
