1932 Ford Roadster Wins 2010 Hot Rod of The Year - Web Exclusive

Jun 23, 2010

Floyd Williams, a So Cal native now settled in Austin, TX, took home the 2010 Goodguys/Gearstar Hod Rod of the Year award at the 22nd Hot Rod Nationals in Indianapolis.

With a true '60s So-Cal-style street/drag roadster theme in mind, Floyd and son Kevin commissioned Dave Lane at Fast Land Rod Shop in Donanhue, Iowa to build the rod.

Beginning with the interior, artist Eric Brockmeyer rendered a period-correct interior with bare bone basics combined with diamond-pleated leather seats and the correct amount of lightning holes.

The exterior color was never in question. In true hot rod fashion, Floyd chose DuPont's Super Jet Black.

For the powerplant, the trio chose a small-block Chevy topped by Hilborn stack injection. '60s features include a Joe Hunt magneto, Milodon oil pan and Corvette valve covers. The gears are rowed through a Tremec five-speed tranny. Halibrand rear wheels wrapped in Hurst cheater slicks provide the So-Cal drag look.

To provide the aggressive rake, a Magnum five-inch dropped axle was fitted with So Cal hairpins. To finish it off, Jon Wright provided all of the chrome.

Williams' hot rod roadster can be seen at: the LA Roadster's Father's Day show in Pomona, Goodguys 13th PPG Nationals in Columbus, the Goodguys 24th West Coast Nationals, Goodguys Midwestern Nationals in Kansas City and the season-ending Southwest Nationals in Scottsdale, AZ.
