A 1932 Ford Highboy From the Golden Era of Hot Rodding | Meet Our Concours Field

Having a tricked-out Ford Highboy is one thing, but having one from that glory days of hot rodding in the ‘40s and ‘50s is a whole other thing entirely.

Better yet, this particular Highboy—named the “Pacific Gun Sight Special” after the company that supplied one of its former owners with tires—ran at the Bonneville Salt Flats, where in 1952 it posted an official top speed of 124.82 mph.

Since then, the Ford has changed hands a few times before settling into its current ownership, and today is presented “identical mechanically and in appearance to the way it was when it ran at Bonneville in 1952.”

Even though this 1932 Ford Highboy can be considered an original hot rod and has some credibility thanks to a run a Bonneville, is that enough to secure a top spot in the Concours d’Cancelation Presented by Hagerty?
