The real deal Ardun not a reproduction. Here it is Kids Ardun Flathead the holy Grail of hot rodding Just as a point of reference most arduns I come across go for around $50,000 so add in a real 32 roadster and your prolly in the 75K range given the shape of this one. A perfect Ardun Roadster sold at auction this summer for over $160,000 so this car is pretty interesting.
I,ve owned this car for 30 years.
Original frame with 1948 Flathead engine fitted with original Ardun heads(numbers 242 and 243).
These are the earlier heads with the front water outlets,unlike the reproductions available.
Engine is fitted with 4 Strombergs,Vertex mag,Potvin cam,Headers etc,etc

Awesome HAMB build. Killer traditional Ride.
Here is quite possibly the most traditional 1931 Ford A-V8 roadster available today. The chassis is a step boxed original 1932 Ford chassis with stock front crossmember using stock style 32 front engine mounts and a stock K-member with rear c-channel legs added for more torsional strength. The rear crossmember is 26-27 Ford Model T along with the T tapered leaf rear spring. 1932 Ford pedals are used converted to Hydraulic brakes with a stainless steel sleeved 1939 master cylinder. Steering is a rebuilt F1 with a 35 mast and column drop turned by a 38 Banjo wheel. E-brake is a stock 32 handle and works quite well. Front axle is an original 32 which has been dropped, chromed and drilled and all is positioned by an original, intact wishbone. A chromed Posies spring is used along with chromed 39 backing plates and drums. The rear is an original Halibrand Culver City quickchange using 40 cones and shortened 36 bolt on radius rods. Chrome P&J shocks are used on all four corners along with 40 wheels, smooth trim rings and 40 Deluxe caps. Tires are 7.00 and 5.50×16 Firestones and front spindles are 40 also. Rear brakes are 40 Ford with slip-on drums and functioning E-brake. The excellent engine in this car started as a 51 Ford 8BA V8 which is now .060 over, uses a EAB Merc cam with Johnson lifters, stock chrome fuel pump, shortened W headers with 1.75″ exhaust feeding both screw on capped 36 Ford driveshaft lakes pipes and full, out the back dual exhaust. Mufflers were not used nor are they needed. Ignition is Mallory and AC 12v finned coil. Fan is an 8RT belt driven item along with the generator and water pumps. Oil filter is a Filcoolator beehive. Transmission is a 38 with 40 gears connected to an 8BA flywheel with 40 style 10″ clutch and pressure plate. The driveshaft is a shortened 40 torque tube and all bearings, universals were new at time of construction during the last two years. The body on the car is an original 31 roadster correctly fitted to the 32 frame with a full steel floor from the seat back. Front floor is wood as was done by Henry. A ten gallon T tank is behid the seat with remote fill. Deck lid hinges are 51 Ford. The dash is an absolute work of art 41 Ford Super Deluxe which has been sliced and diced to fit and used Fenton chrome aftermarket trim. A stock 31 Deluxe top is fitted and has been chopped 3 inches along with the windshield. Tali lights are 46 Ford, head lights are 36 passenger lenses/rings on 35 pickup buckets. Original 32 grill/shell holds a modified Mustang radiator enclosed in a 32 tank. This car was constructed during the last two years by an absolute master, the workmanship and attention to detail is mind blowing. Everything functions as intended although the gas guage is not to be trusted and the speedo reads a little fast depending on the gears in the QC. Seat is built for a tall individual and shorter drivers may need to invest in pillows are do a little seat modification. The complete build history from beginning to end may be found on the HAMB, 30 pages of photos and info that reads like a Tardel book. Registration/title is a clear and open NYS 1931 Ford item.
Old 35 Coupe in need of some love. Snatch it up and bring it back to life.
1935 Ford Coupe Project. Has 36 Ford front sheetmetal. Car is still on the original frame, appears to be really solid. Frame does not have rear spring crossmember.

Window cranks roll up and down. Car is just sitting on 47 ford juice brake axles front and rear, no springs, just tack welded to frame to move it around. It has no trunklid, but does have the hinges. Rear fenders look really nice, front fenders have had cracks repaired & welded but will need finished. Has all interior window frames except for rear quarter windows. Have extra 36 dash and windshield frame and they will go with the car. It also has the roll down back glass option. No glass in the car.

1932 Ford Highboy; Original Ford steel body, 350 cu. in., 4-spd, 3X2s………a genuine old Hot Rod!
The car was built with the 350 in the LA area in the late sixties and has been and is driven regularly….has lots of “patina”….i.e. wear and tear……….
The paint is decent, but the lacquer is cracking in some places. Windshield posts and frame are nice, but there is some chrome flaking on the posts.
The interior started off burgundy, but after 50 plus years has faded to tan. Has a nice top that folds up and fits in the rumble seat (no side curtains).
The hood is a Ford 25 louver , but also includes louvered hood top panels for an open engine capability.
The Dash is from and old Auburn, with SW mechanical gauges. Old sprint steering wheel.
I-beam drilled front axle, Ford drum brakes, hairpins, transverse rear spring.
