Sellers original description:
1932 Ford Boydster II. There is no mistaking the Chip Foose-designed lines and quality execution of the Deuce-based Boydster II Roadster. Boyd Coddington was responsible for some of the most famous hot rods and customs in the industry, and he is widely credited for helping to shape the clean, smooth hot rod themes prevalent today. His work was awarded numerous magazine covers and countless awards.
This car in particular was the subject of a large magazine article and was shown at the SEMA show and covered on TV.
This "Buckaroo" Boydster II (so named for the man how had the car built, Jim Dalton, owner of Buckaroo Communications) is the only Boydster II that was built with a 320hp Ford 302 crate motor. The power is kept under control with a full Boyd independent coilover suspension, 4-wheel disc brakes, an AOD automatic overdrive transmission with Boyd Coddington billet wheels wearing high-performance Goodyear tires. This vehicle is in outstanding condition with countless special features, including special Boyd gauges, Boyd Coddington wheels and three-spoke steering wheel, billet suspension, Pro-Ride chassis, and much, much more. Mileage shows 3216 miles and is believed to be correct. This is a glass bodied car. VIN # is 18224529 (New York Title).
According to the owner, the highlights of this special car include:
- This is the car shown at SEMA in Las Vegas.
- This is the car that Chip Foose designed and was personally involved with.
- This is the only one that has a FORD Motor in it.
- Jim Dalton was the first other owner of this car.
- The second owner was offered $300,000 for this car shortly after Boyd Coddington's death.
The paint was skillfully applied by Charlie Hutton while Gabe Lopez stitched the handsome red leather interior. The red-on-red combination is striking, although the car would look good in any color. The red does set the car apart and blends its flowing lines all the more, adding to the long hood, extending the organic feeling from front to rear. This roadster was superbly designed and built by two of street rods masters with no expenses spared.
