    hi all,

    about a year ago i bought my uncles 32 ford roadster,

    he has owned it since 1953

    he raced it in the 1956 us nationals and is listed in the program, i thought that was cool

    its a full fendered, full hood, hi-boy rumbleseat car, chrysler wire wheels + wide whites

    he had a old style hemi in it til the mid sixtes when he replaced it with a 413 mopar

    he got in a a fender bender, and ive since taken on a total restoration of the car using as many original henry + era type parts for the car

    i am having trouble finding new white running boards, and 1 nice chrome 904A blc headlight

    can anyone offer any ideas on those items?

    thank you
    tony

    Place an ad in the 'Wanted' section of the classifieds, something might turn up that way.

    IMO it looked better with the steelies on it, but it's still a bad ass car, and a cool piece of family history.
    Hopefully you're not the only one in the family that appreciates, and can enjoy, such a cool piece of family history.

    Keep the wires, bumpers and white running boards. We need more East Coast style cars. Spot on man.

    … what a rush it is to see this Deuce Roadster basically stay the same; and for someone in the family to own & to appreciate those that have; so to speak “paved the way” in the hobby, plus the chain of ownership, history, photos, programs, trophies; I don’t see how it could get any better.

    I have to ask; in that one photo with your uncle to the left & your dad on the right is the older couple between them their parents?
    Congrats, Ric
