This 1931 Ford Highboy Roadster has cool vintage details, like the flathead V8 and three-speed. It mixes nicely with cool upgrades, like the wheels and suspension. And it all comes together to deliver a striking street machine.

To understand how this one mixes vintage and new, you start with the composition. It's a modern construction of a steel-bodied roadster. That means a classic look and feel, but with newer panels that has a trustworthy fit. It truly has the look of a classic speed machine with the blue engine block contrasting nicely against the maroon paint so everyone takes notice. There's also the tall waterfall grille, fender-free profile, and even a snug-fitting black folding soft top when you want to keep the sunshine off your shoulders. Those competition-style American Racing Torq Thrust wheels are a nice upgrade, especially with the large and wider rear ones for a proper hot rod stance. Even the classic-style redline tires with modern treads show that this one is about thoughtful details.

Inside is a classic-style interior. It starts with the black seat that has a tan insert with a little tuck and roll flair. This two-tone coordinates with the side panels and floor mat for a well-done style. There are some nice subtle upgrades to make this a nice driver's machine. For example, there's a classic banjo-style steering wheel, but it's a modern grippy sports unit mounted on handy tilt column. And the dash is dominated by gauges that are newer/crisper units. There is an AM/FM/cassette stereo, but really, your favorite soundtrack with the flathead in front of you.

It's always great to see classic Ford power in a Highboy like this, especially when it's so proudly on display. This 239ci flathead is a true classic, right down to the carb and head bolts. But this was also built to be a better driver, and that's why you have a 12-volt electrical system, upgraded ignition, and an aluminum radiator with electric fan. This V8 runs strong and makes a terrific sound as headers feed the glasspack-style dual exhaust. And the three-speed manual transmission gives you proper control and old-school action. As you look underneath this street machine, you see the right upgrades like disc brakes up front and a four-link rear with adjustable coilovers.

This is the iconic Highboy done right. So if you love to turn heads while going old-school, call today!
