Well, you just can’t get much nicer that this! This 1929 Ford High Boy Roadster is clean, clean, clean!!! Everywhere!! A very high-end build, utilizing quality components throughout, this is the Roadster you can drive to the indoor or outdoor car show, slip a few mirrors under the car, and take home the trophies!
Yes, drive it to the show as the Chevrolet LT1 fuel injected Corvette crate engine bolted to the polished Turbo 400 heavy duty automatic transmission with a polished aluminum driveshaft headed towards the polished Halibrand quick change differential, all working in concert to provide a very proven, very strong drivetrain to get you anywhere you want to go in confident reliability.
Once planted in the comfortable bench drivers seat, there’s plenty of room in this Roadster. The dash is laid out with vintage style Classic Instruments gauges, billet pedals and controls, a comfortable seating position , and an interior-matching billet steering wheel with a leather grip.
Twist the left mounted ignition key and the LT1 jumps to life and is ready to go! Driving nice and easy around town the tone remains low and deep. Get into the throttle and everyone in your vicinity will notice…Cool!
The power 4 wheel disc brakes pull the Red Roadster down to zero with ease and accuracy, not to mention looking bright and shiny while doing so.
Be sure to check out the undercarriage of this ’29 as it is as clean and polished as the exterior paint. Every detail was tended to and the result that you see here is nothing short of amazing.
The luggage compartment is spacious, and clean. Upholstered to match the interior, you’ll find sculpted panels to include the trunk mounted battery within a polished stainless surround and a sculpted fabric cover over that! Take your pick as to which one to show as both are beautiful. Also, behind the left upper trunk panel is a compartment that houses the fuel filler…Very nice!
If you want to build a High-Boy Roadster to win the car shows, and cruise around in comfort, style and confidence. Utilizing a well thought out plan for your build, and high quality work, and products throughout your build…Don’t bother, this is it right here! You’ll love it!
