Street Rod 1932 Lo-Boy Body
If you have ever wanted a 1932 Roadster but don't like the cramped cockpit, Speedway has the answer! We started with a clean slate and no expense was spared in the development of this classic street rod. By stretching the chassis and adding 2" to the length of the doors, you are able to get in and out of the car much easier. Also by moving the seat back 2", you have much more leg room and a smoother ride than an original 1932 Ford.
The Speedway Lo-Boy has been one of the most celebrated kit cars ever. Featured in Hot Rod Magazine, Street Rodder, and Rod & Custom Magazine, this car has recieved a great deal of publicity and acclaim. Correctly styled and authentically reproduced, the Lo-Boy Roadster revitalizes the hot rodding spirit that made the 1932 Ford a legend in America’s automotive history books. Designed for nostalgic originality, the Lo-Boy features a unique channeled look, which was quite popular in the early days of hot rodding.
The Lo-Boy body kit features a reinforced fiberglass 1932 Ford Roadster reproduction body, custom floor pan with transmission and driveshaft tunnel, passenger compartment bulkhead panel and trunk floor pan. It also includes functional doors with inner panels installed, as well as a deck lid with inner panel installed. Door jam structure braces, integral rear roll pan and rubber body mounting pads are also included.
The body sits upon our custom 106" wheelbase chassis (sold separately). It is a unique tubular design that channels the body over the frame rails for a nostalgic look.

If you are building a lightweight car like a "T" or an "A", mounting the body may present a problem. These neat expanding rubber universal body mounts allow you to drill a 3/4" hole in the top of the frame, insert a 3/8" coarse bolt, tighten, then the body is mounted.
Not recommended for cars newer than 1934.
