Classic 1932 Ford Deuce Roadster hot rod in 'striking blue' is for sale

Highlights in an upcoming Fort Lauderdale classic car auction include this classic Ford hot rod car

This classic 1932 Ford Deuce Roadster hot rod is especially eye-catching thanks to its striking blue paint, richly contrasted by custom white leather seats. The car will be auctioning in Fort Lauderdale, US, between March 16-18.

The custom '32 Deuce hot rod has apparently been built "with no expense spared". According to the sellers, the classic car's performance matches its impressive aesthetics - outside and in, with an interior which includes a customised dashboard from a 1940 Ford.

The 1932 Ford Deuce Roadster hot rod has an all-steel Ford Dearborn body with a Duval windshield. Modifications to the car include a new front to the car's chassis, and fully-chromed rear suspension.

It goes without saying that this Ford packs plenty of power, thanks to its 454-cid General Motors engine bored .060 over. The engine is connected to a 350 Turbo-HydraMatic three-speed transmission with a Ford nine-inch Positraction rear end, enhanced by 3.56:1 gears.

The Ford Deuce Roadster's speed is matched by its stopping power courtesy of Wilwood disc brakes with polished calipers. Authentic 650 Holley carburetors maintain the car's air induction. Everything has been chromed an polished with great attention to detail.

Even more remarkable is that this custom classic Ford Deuce Roadster has been driven only 270 miles since completion. You can't blame the previous owner for wanting to preserve this beautiful hot rod. A new collector can enjoy it after the March 16-18 sale.
