1932 Ford "Tequila Sunrise" Roadster
This Model A has found a new home!
However, we'd be happy to locate another one just for you.
- Exterior: The body and fenders on this beauty are hand laid composite
and fiberglass reinforced with porcelain ceramic. The paint is a custom mixed, one
of a kind high gloss lacquer with clear coat. All body panels were painted off the
frame with trim components installed afterward. A famous DuVall windshield and windshield
frame adds that classic finishing touch. The padded convertible (removable) hard
top is equipped with a third brake light. A Rootlieb steel hood covers the engine
compartment. Custom chrome strips adorn the molded running boards to provide step
plates and an L.E.D. tail light array is discretely molded in place on the lower
rear of the body.
- Interior: The interior is in pristine showroom condition featuring
seats, door panels, kick panels, and the trunk interior covered in two tone Tan
Ultra Leather and Mercedes wool carpeting. An "Ididit" tilt-telescopic
steering column is topped with a custom billet steering wheel. The "smoothy"
handmade dash houses six analog gauges including: Speedometer/Odometer, Tach, Temp,
Fuel, Battery and Oil in a custom billet insert. The owner even added his personal
touch of embroidered floor mats with the car's name "Tequila Sunrise".
Power steering and a remote trunk release round out the comfort quotient of this

of a Currie Ent. Ford 9 inch differential equipped with a 3.50 Posi gear set. A
Mustang II-style IFS with Vega rack and pinion steering, GM front disc brakes and
coil over shocks are up front. Coil overs and drum brakes are in the rear.
