![CDATA[
The Ford Model B was introduced in 1932 as a replacement for the Model A and was produced until 1934. It was available in a large variety of body styles including two-door roadster, two-door coupé, four-door sedans, four-door station wagons and also pick-up derivative. The Model B's proved very popular with bootleggers as they were easily modified then used to evade the revenue agents in the prohibition era. During the period after World War II, returning soldiers regularly upgraded Model B’s with larger engines, improved suspension and transmissions. It was common place to fit larger rear wheels to raise gear ratio at high speed, while in the front smaller wheels allowed the car to rake forward for improved aerodynamics. These cars were built to race and became known as 'Hot Rods'. The Ford Model B Pick-up 'Hot Rod' offered here is a highly desirable, all-steel, 1932 HiBoy model. Finished in deep Tartan Blue with tan leather interior, this pick-up has covered an indicated 981 miles since the rebuild. This remarkable car has undergone a complete, no expense spared, restoration and you can be left with no doubt it is fabulous throughout.
Notable works include new powder coated chassis rails, chromed wishbones, chromed shocks to the front with adjustable coil overs on the rear, polished finned alloy brake covers for the Speedway polished front discs brakes with fully refurbished rear drum brakes. This exceptional pick-up is powered by fully rebuilt (circa 1961) Buick 401 Nailhead V8, 6600cc engine with a .30 though bore which breaths through an Edelbrock carburettor offering circa 400bhp. The powerful engine is mated to a five speed Tremec 600 manual gearbox which sends power via a new propshaft to a Moser 9" Ford rear axle. Additional mechanical works have included Sanderson chrome lustre block hugger heads, new exhaust system, Pertronix electronic ignition system, new aluminium radiator with electric fan, high torque starter motor, mini high-output alternator and full re-wire throughout. Other notable works have included; new front and rear metal fenders, new running boards, new steel bonnet, new glass all-round, new Classic Instruments gauges including volts, oil, temperature, rev. counter and speedometer. The chrome is in excellent condition throughout with refurbished Ford Towlite headlights with fully functional indicators hidden inside. The pick-up is finished off with a full treated wooden rear load bed and stainless steel runners. This stunning example sounds awesome with an incredible exhaust note and is extremely quick to drive. Supplied with a current V5 registration document, correctly registered as a 1932 vehicle, this car is the right quality to grace, and win, any show.]]
