I think it's a tie!
I cant get passed Vic Edelbrocks salt roadster of the 40s. JW
Another vote for Phil Cools 32 roadster. A blown big block highboy in a sea of brown painted resto rods looking for mileage.
I figure thats makes it historically significant as well as very cool.
Mine ain't the best,but here it is!

This is a great thread,the best Highboy ever?,,I think that may be subjective depending on what time period inspires you and personal taste.
There has been many great looking cars posted and it proves that we can't agree on just one which is the "best" we can certainly agree nicely built traditional Deuce highboy's will always have a huge following! HRP
Not sure if this fits the bill but its mine.So hope someone else likes it apart from me.392 and quickchange.Candy gold.From New Zealand.
I like this one.
Lots 'n' lots of really nice highboys on here. I'd be proud to have any one of them, but I am especially fond of the '60s style and you nailed that one wepn! Nice Deuce!
Keep those pics rollin' in guys.
I sense a little bias there... that thing got a Hemi?
I like this one...
Second best. The BEST highboy Deuce coupe ever has already been posted on this thread. See post #32...
[but in my Book the Doane Spencer roadster is the cock of the walk as far as
I'm concerned! HRP
This makes the rest of the thread pointless.
I want 'em all! And I don't have any.

The kyle roadster is one bitchin highboy
The Lobeck crew built this delivery using the same formula as His roadster. I was 14, and I loved it. I've always preferred the looks of closed cars for some reason.
I wouldn't go so far as to say it's my favorite, but I'll never forget it. I don't think I could have one single favorite '32 hiboy.
The first one I thought of was Doane Spencer's, but that's already been posted.
Lookin' good Don
.......Thanks, Joe. Did a little change-up on the wheel/tire combination. Trying to get a little more traditional look.
That's the '32 that Ryan built for his uncle. I spent a lot of time looking that car over from top to bottom at So Cal's Open House. That car is amazing. Ryan has got the "look" nailed.
Another vote for the Spencer roadster...
How about this one
I'm not a diehard Deuce Hiboy fan. Kool? Well of course they are, but if I were on a mission to get one that moves me this is it. History, icons, extraordinary examples, they do indeed exist but this one nailed it hardcore.
I would bet a lot of guys would argue with you on this.........not me.
I agree with Lynn. Of all the cars mentioned in this thread, those two set the standard for what a hot rod '32 should look like. Of course I'm standing in the preferences of 2015, and traditional cars like these are the current favorites; maybe in another 10 years it will appear that other historic cars set the bar.
For the time being, though, it seems to me that the Spencer car has never been surpassed for style and quality of engineering; the McGee car is the other most influential deuce roadster in hot rod history.
