This 1926 Ford Roadster Golden Era Hot Rod Can Be Yours
If you like cool Ford hotrods, you have until November 15th to break out your checkbook. At least, that’s the case with this 1926 Ford Roadster Golden Era made by customizer Rick Dore. While it’s dubbed the Ford Roadster Golden Era, the car actually started life as a 1926 Ford Model T before getting a 1960s-era hot-rod makeover.

That makeover includes a wheelbase stretch to 106 inches and a lowering that makes the car basically scrape the ground. Power comes from a 351 cubic-inch Ford V-8, and the 325 horsepower gets to the wheels via a Ford C-4 automatic trans. A nine-inch rear axle with a 3.73 rear differential gets it to the ground. The exhaust pipes have been routed to the rear to keep the paint looking like new.
This car has been on the streets since 2006, and it’s scheduled to reach auction on November 15 for a minimum of $60,000.
