Up for sale is the STEADFAST-built 1932 Ford sedan. This car hit the show circuit mid-summer 2012, and has not looked back! First we nabbed the GOODGUYS Builders Choice Award in Columbus, Ohio, and then the N.S.R.A. Pro’s Pick in Louisville, Kentucky--and both with no upholstery! With the upholstery finished, on we went to GOODGUYS in Indy to become part of the top five for Hotrod of the Year. For the season finale, we drove the sedan all the way to Daytona Beach, Florida where photographer Steve Coonan shot the car for RODDER’S JOURNAL Number Fifty-Eight.
If you are interested in this car and would like a detailed description, pick up RODDER’S JOURNAL Number Fifty-Eight and check out “Henry’s Ford.” You will learn about how this vehicle was built, and see both the spec sheets and high quality photos that reveal the minute details.
This car will also be featured on shirts and memorabilia for the GOODGUYS SPEEDWAY NATIONALS 2013, which will be held in Indianapolis.
If you have questions or would just like more information, please feel free to call the builder, Henry, at 419.632.3315. You may also send email to and request a full tech sheet on this beauty.
