THE QUALITY AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL SHOWS THRU-OUT THE ENTIRE BUILD. PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOUR CURRENT FINANCIAL SITUATION ALLOWS YOU TO BID ON THIS VEHICLE.

WE ALL KNOW CHIP FOOSE IS ONE OF THE BEST AUTO DESIGNERS IN THE HOT ROD COMMUNITY. THIS ROADSTER WAS DESIGNED BY CHIP FOOSE. IN FACT THIS WAS THE VERY FIRST CAR HE DESIGNED WHEN HE LEFT BOYD CODDINGTON. HERE IS HOW THE PROJECT CAME ABOUT. IN 1997 BOYD CODDINGTON WENT BANKRUPT AND DID NOT HAVE MONEY TO PAY HIS EMPLOYEES. THE BANK OFFERED THE CHASSIS TO CHIP AS HIS LAST PAYCHECK. CHIP NEEDED MONEY MORE THAN THE CHASSIS BECAUSE HE WAS STARTING HIS SHOP. RELUCTANTLY CHIP TOOK THE CHASSIS AND ENDED UP CONTACTING THE ORIGINAL OWNER OF THE CAR WHO WAS ALREADY A BOYD CUSTOMER. HE TOLD HIM THAT IF HE PURCHASED THE CHASSIS THAT HE WOULD NOT ONLY DESIGN HIS CAR BUT HE WOULD WORK WITH MARCEL AND GABE TO ENSURE THAT A FINE QUALITY ROADSTER EMERGED WHEN THE DUST SETTLED. THE DEAL WAS DONE AND WHAT YOU SEE TODAY IS THE RESULT. WE ALSO HAVE THE ORIGINAL FULL SIZE CONCEPTIONAL DRAWING OF THE CAR FROM CHIP FOOSE THAT MARCEL USED IN HIS SHOP TO BUILD THE BODY (see pics).
WE PURCHASED THE CAR DIRECTLY FROM THE ORIGINAL OWNER WHO IS ONE OF OUR LONG TERM CUSTOMERS. HE IS A 77 YEAR OLD CAR COLLECTOR THAT STORES HIS CARS IN A CLIMATE CONTROLLED AIRPLANE HANGER. THIS CAR TOOK OVER 3 YEARS TO BUILD AND WAS FINISHED IN LATE OF 2000. THE CAR SHOWS ONLY 3 ACTUAL MILES. THAT IS NOT A TYPO THE CAR ONLY HAS 3 MILES. THE CAR COMES WITH A CLEAN AND CLEAR ARIZONA TITLE THAT SHOWS NO BANK LIENS. THE CAR IS TITLED WITH AN ARIZONA SPECIAL CONTRUCTION TITLE. IT IS REGISTERED AS A 1932 SPCON FORD RD.

THE POWERPLANT IS A GM 350ci LT4 TPI FUEL INJECTED SMALL BLOCK ENGINE THAT IS BACKED BY A GM 700R4 AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION. THAT POWER IS TRANSFERED TO THE PAVEMENT BY THE BOYDS INDEPENDENT FORD 9 INCH REAR END. THE MOTOR WAS SENT TO TPI INDUSTRIES TO HAVE THE NECCASRY PERFORMANCE UPGRADES INSTALLED. THEY MASSAGED THE MOTOR WITH A MILD CAM AND THROTTLE BODY UPGRADE. THE MOTOR ALSO FEAUTRES A TPI INDUSTRIES FUEL INJECTION SYSTEM, ELECTRONIC FUEL PUMP, K&N HIGH FLOW FILTER AND A SET OF TAYLOR PLUG WIRES.

THE TWO TONE PAINT JOB ON THIS ROADSTER IS UNREAL. THE PAINT JOB WAS PERFORMED BY DENNY HEAPY IN MINNESOTA. THE BODY WAS FINAL PREPPED, SEALED AND THEN SPRAYED WITH A BRIGHT SILVER BASE COAT WITH A VIBRANT PURPLE TWO TONE.
