[MOC] ’32 Ford Roadster: Classic Choice

Recommended Posts

Hello,

today I show you my latest MOC: The Roadster.

My ’32 Ford roadster is probably one of the most classic and iconic “old school” Hot Rod around.

Recently people has discovered again the old school Hot Rods with their smooth design, classic colors and without frills.

Original and vintage Hot Rods are considered today as a treasure to conserve and preserve indeed they are sought after and very expensive.

I'm fascinated by classic Rods and for this I built this Ford ’32 Roadster with the body of a Ford Model B, released by the American manufacturer from 1932 to 1934, painted in total black.

The Roadster fits the V8 flathead with three carburettors and wheels are "oversized" respect to the original ones that were narrower (I didn’t find LEGO wheels that fitted well, at least to me).

I used few chromed parts that I think look great on the car. I especially like the big rims with the chromed dish 4 x 4 inverted (Radar).

The engine is made of light grey bricks with a touch of chrome.

I like to imagine this Roadster racing at Bonneville Speedway in the fifties. Racing number: 74, of course!

The back: refined and graceful.
