1932 Ford Custom - The Texas Playboy
There may be other 32 Fords out there but not all cars are created equal. This beautiful built 32 Roadster is the brain child of Brian Bass with Bass Kustoms who fully documented the build process online over on the H.A.M.B. on Jalopy Journal. That post is still there and features a page outlining the build followed by 12 additional pages full of complements for Bass and his 59 styled Roadster. That is part of what makes this 32 so cool and stand out .....
next to others. It wasn't meant to be a modern style hot rod but one that pays homage to the style of car customizations back in the 50s. It even wears a 1959 license plate...talk about detail. There is no doubting Bass does amazing work and why he joined the team on Fast N Loud to lead some of their period correct builds.
This car is known as the Texas Playboy and only the best hands in the business took part in its construction. In addition to Bass's work the interior was done at Fat Lucky's in Austin, Texas and the motor by Eric Carter in Azle, Texas. It was clear Bass had a vision in mind and new the people that would make it happen. The result is a one of a kind well known Hot Rod that truly has its own place in Hot Rodding history. The car also received a very nice write up in the Rodder's Journal which is one of the most highly regarded publications in the Hot Rodding world.
A copy of the magazine article is available for review and the magazine does come with the car.
We could write pages upon pages of all the quality workmanship in the car and even still know we will leave something out. So lets stick with the basics to give you an idea of the cars specs.
REAR WHEELS AND TIRES
When you start to look at all of the different components that went into this build it becomes clear how well this car was thought out. It isn't a case of just pulling out a catalogue and ordering parts. An obvious effort was made to make every single piece on it something that you could have available in the 50's. It is such a well designed car and the hours that went into it is something we couldn't even estimate. If you want the 32 Ford that is going to stand out, this is the one. Every old hotrodder out there will appreciate the time, effort and skill it took to construct a 50s era hot rod in modern times.
You couldn't come close to replicating it for only $95,000.00!
