Known as Blue Boy, this Henry Ford original steel-bodied hot rod sports a perfect stance with a classic complement of parts and accessories. A shaved and chopped deuce grille shell, dropped axles and headlight bar with turn signal BLC headlamps, vee'd chrome spreader bar, custom leather and aluminum interior with B-17 Bomber seats, 1932 Chrysler gauges and a triple-chromed Duval-style windshield adorn the exterior. All period correct Highboy Roadsters sport a 1928-1932 steel body mounted on deuce rails and use an extremely limited selection of windshields, head and taillamps, suspension systems and wheel/tire combinations. And yet, as in an army platoon, certain hot rod heroes stand tall, existing heads and shoulders above their similarly uniformed brethren. Blue Boy falls in this category. Mechanical aspects include a recently rebuilt '39 Flattie mill with lakes pipes sending the power through a '39 transmission to a wishbone located '40 Ford rear end. Other improvements include four-wheel juice brakes, big n little steelies with blackwall BFGoodrich tires, tube shocks and an ATL fuel cell in a proper aluminum container. Engine speed parts have been procured from a previous A-B post-war engine Offenhauser aluminum heads and a Fenton dual intake manifold will accompany this sale. Blue Boy was conceived and carefully built over a two year period by Florida based Longley Restorations the father and son team of Chuck and Mike Longley; well known as specialists in the immediate postwar traditional hot rod genre; Built with period accuracy, this is a faultless Dry Lakes 50s Race Roadster replica.
