This 1927 Ford Roadster is said to have been acquired by the seller’s family and modified as a hot rod during the late 1940s. The car features steel bodywork finished in yellow over black leather upholstery, and power is supplied by a DeSoto 237ci straight-six equipped with three carburetors and linked with a Dodge three-speed manual transmission. Additional modifications include an Edmunds Racing intake manifold, Allied Manufacturing Blue Streak glass pack mufflers, a cueball shift knob, a dropped front axle, front and rear hairpins, and wire-spoke wheels. This Ford hot rod is now offered with period photos and a clean California title in the seller’s name. The steel body features a removable three-piece hood and was fitted with a custom-fabricated aluminum front nose and rolled side and rear panels in the 1940s before being refinished in yellow in the 1990s. The dual exhausts exit through the rear valance, and brightwork includes a chrome grille, headlamp housings, and windshield trim. Chrome-finished 15″ wire-spoke wheels with faux knock-offs are mounted with 6.40″ front and 8.20″ rear Firestone Deluxe Champion tires. Chrome suspension components include a front drop axle and front and rear hairpins. The bench seat is trimmed in black pleated leather and matching upholstery extends to the door panels. Interior equipment includes a fire extinguisher, a cueball shift knob, black carpets, and drilled aluminum brake and clutch pedals. A leather-wrapped steering wheel fronts a body-color dash housing a 140-mph speedometer and an 8k-rpm tachometer. The five-digit mechanical odometer shows 19 miles, though total mileage is unknown. The DeSoto 237ci straight-six is equipped with an Edmunds Racing intake manifold, three carburetors, a 12-volt electrical system, an electric fuel pump and radiator fan, and Allied Manufacturing Blue Streak glass packs. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a three-speed manual transmission reportedly sourced from a 1937 Dodge. The seller notes that the car was last driven in the summer of 2021. Additional photos of the underbody are presented in the gallery. Photos of the car taken in the early 1950s are included in the gallery.
