1932 Ford Highboy Originally built in 1958 by George Barris of Barris Kustom Industry in Los Angeles County in California. The first owner brought Barris the stock Ford chassis to modify the body and drivetrain and this marked the starting point of the hot rod's life. Barris Kustom removed the fenders, chopped the top by almost 5", and fitted a 1956 Oldsmobile 324ci Rocket 88 V8 engine paired with an Oldsmobile Hydramatic Transmission. Once Barris had completed the modifications, the hot rod was delivered back to its owner in unpainted but drivable condition. Over time the owner drove the car while adding finishing touches and eventually sold the car to its next owner, who then tasked themselves with painting the car. The car then went through several owners over a period of 50 years before being discovered in a Santa Ynez, California. It was found abandoned in a storage garage by a friend of the owner who originally had Barris Kustom modify the Ford. Remembering back to when he rode in the back of the hot rod with the owner's son, he set out to restore it back to its former glory. The Olds engine had been swapped with a Ford unit, so another 56 Oldsmobile engine and 4- speed Hydramatic transmission were sourced and mildly modified. Three Stromberg 97 carburetors were used, just like how it was back in 1958. Finned aluminum Buick drum brakes, a Weiand intake manifold, and a quick-change rear end completed the restoration of the yellow hot rod in 2013. In 2017, it made its first debut at the Forest Grove Concours d'Elegance in Portland, Oregon and won the Bill Peterson award. This fully sorted and restored hot rod, complete with its period drivetrain and cosmetic modifications, is ready to show on the street or a concours lawn just like it did back in 1958.
